Proc. 40th IEEE Int. Symp. on Multiple-Valued Logic
The paper studies graded properties of MTL_Delta-valued binary connectives, focusing on conjunctive connectives such as t-norms, uninorms, aggregation operators, or quasicopulas. The graded properties studied include monotony, a generalized Lipschitz property, unit and null elements, commutativity, associativity, and idempotence. Finally, a graded notion of dominance is investigated and applied to transmission of graded properties of fuzzy relations. The framework of Fuzzy Class Theory (or higher-order fuzzy logic) is employed as a tool for easy derivation of graded theorems on the connectives.
