Title: Transitive closure of interval-valued fuzzy relations
Authors: González del Campo, Ramón; Garmendia Salvador, Luis; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge
Abstract: In this paper are introduced some concepts of interval-valued fuzzy relations and some of their properties: reflexivity, symmetry, T-transitivity, composition and local reflexivity. The existence and uniqueness of T-transitive closure of interval-valued fuzzy relations is proved. An algorithm to compute the T-transitive closure of finite interval-valued fuzzy relations is showed. Some properties and some examples is given for t-representable and t-pseudo representable generalized t-norms.Tue, 29 Apr 2014 11:50:13 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/227482014-04-29T11:50:13ZGonzález del Campo, Ramón; Garmendia Salvador, Luis; Recasens Ferrés, JorgenoGeneralized t-norms, Interval-valued Fuzzy Relations, Interval-valued Fuzzy Sets, t-norms, t-representable t-norms, T-transitive closureIn this paper are introduced some concepts of interval-valued fuzzy relations and some of their properties: reflexivity, symmetry, T-transitivity, composition and local reflexivity.

Title: On the Induction of New Fuzzy Relations, New Fuzzy Operators and Their Aggregation
Authors: Carmona Cervelló, Neus; Elorza, Jorge; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge; Bragard, Jean
Abstract: In this paper we generate fuzzy relations and fuzzy operators using different kind of generators and we study the relationship between them. Firstly, we introduce a new fuzzy preorder induced by a fuzzy operator. We generalize this preorder to a fuzzy relation generated by two fuzzy operators and we analyze its properties. Secondly, we introduce and explore two ways of inducing a fuzzy operator, one from a fuzzy operator and a fuzzy relation and the other one from two fuzzy operators. The first one is an extension of the well-known fuzzy operator induced by a fuzzy relation through Zadeh’s compositional rule. Finally, we aggregate these operators using the quasi-arithmetic mean associated to a continuous Archimedean t-norm. The aim is to compare the operator induced by the quasi-arithmetic mean of the generators with the quasi-arithmetic mean of the generated operators.Tue, 03 Dec 2013 16:03:05 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/209052013-12-03T16:03:05ZCarmona Cervelló, Neus; Elorza, Jorge; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge; Bragard, JeannoIn this paper we generate fuzzy relations and fuzzy operators using different kind of generators and we study the relationship between them.

Title: Permutability of fuzzy consequence operators and fuzzy interior operators
Authors: Carmona, Neus; Elorza, Jorge; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge; Bragard, Jean
Abstract: In this paper we study the permutability of the composition of fuzzy consequence operators (fuzzy closings) and fuzzy interior operators (fuzzy openings). We establish several characterizations and we show the relation of permutability with the fuzzy closure and fuzzy interior of a fuzzy operator. We also study the connection between permutability and the preservation of the operator type through the composition. More precisely, when the composition of two openings is an opening and the composition of two closings is a closing.Tue, 03 Dec 2013 15:03:52 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/209032013-12-03T15:03:52ZCarmona, Neus; Elorza, Jorge; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge; Bragard, JeannoFuzzy closing, Fuzzy Consequence Operator, Fuzzy Interior Operator, Fuzzy Opening, PermutabilityIn this paper we study the permutability of the composition of fuzzy consequence operators (fuzzy closings) and fuzzy interior operators (fuzzy openings).

Title: Structural analysis of indistinguishability operators and related concepts
Authors: Mattioli Aramburu, Gabriel; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge
Abstract: Given an indistinguishability operator E, it is possible to obtain the set of extensional fuzzy subsets HEHE and the respective operators of upper and lower approximations by extensional sets ¿E¿E and ¿E¿E. Reciprocally, given any of these objects, the initial indistinguishability operator E can be retrieved. It is well known that these concepts are in bijection. In this paper, we will prove that the relation underlying them is a lattice isomorphism. We will also consider further operators such as natural means and finally show the robustness of the results with respect to isomorphisms of t-norms.Mon, 16 Sep 2013 16:47:02 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/201432013-09-16T16:47:02ZMattioli Aramburu, Gabriel; Recasens Ferrés, JorgenoSet theory, Artificial intelligence, Software engineeringGiven an indistinguishability operator E, it is possible to obtain the set of extensional fuzzy subsets HEHE and the respective operators of upper and lower approximations by extensional sets ¿E¿E and ¿E¿E.

Title: Effects of crop and weed densities on the interactions between barley and Lolium rigidum in several Mediterranean locations
Authors: Izquierdo Figarola, Jordi; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge; Fernández-Quintanilla, C; Gill, G
Abstract: The effects of both barley and Lolium rigidum densities on weed growth and spike production and on crop yield were examined in five field experiments carried out in the Mediterranean drylands of Spain and Western Australia. The aim was to check the consistency of the competitiveness of the crop in different environmental and management conditions. L. rigidum reduced barley yields in most of the experiments (between 0 and 85%), the number of ears per m2 being the most affected. It was found that increasing the barley seeding rate did not reduce the crop losses but did limit weed biomass (between 5 and 61%) and spike production (between 24 and 85%). The variability observed in crop yield losses between sites and seasons was related to rainfall at the beginning of the season. The most sensitive component of yield to weed competition was the number of ears per plant.Wed, 31 Jul 2013 08:36:22 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/200362013-07-31T08:36:22ZIzquierdo Figarola, Jordi; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge; Fernández-Quintanilla, C; Gill, GnoInterference, Barley, Lolium rigidum, Crop yield, Mediterranean regionThe effects of both barley and Lolium rigidum densities on weed growth and spike production and on crop yield were examined in five field experiments carried out in the Mediterranean drylands of Spain and Western Australia.

Title: Aggregation Operators Based on Indistinguishability Operators
Authors: Jacas Moral, Juan; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge
Abstract: This article gives a new approach to aggregating assuming that there is an indistinguishability operator or similarity defined on the universe of discourse. The very simple idea is that when we want to aggregate two values a and b we are looking for a value l that is as similar to a as to b or, in a more logical language, the degrees of equivalence of l with a and b must coincide. Interesting aggregation operators on the unit interval are obtained from natural indistinguishability

Title: Transitivity of fuzzy relations under discretization
Authors: Boixader Ibáñez, Dionís; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge
Abstract: Fuzzy transitivity is a key property for many fuzzy relational structures, such as fuzzy preorders and equivalences. Theoretical models for practical problems which are based on fuzzy relations make use of continuous scales, mostly the unit interval [0, 1]. Practical implementation of these models though, involves their discretization into finite scales, which generally results in some loss of transitivity. In this paper we study if there are any transitivity preserving discretization strategies. Also, we evaluate the loss of transitivity in some commonly used discretization approaches.Tue, 25 Jun 2013 11:23:56 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/196592013-06-25T11:23:56ZBoixader Ibáñez, Dionís; Recasens Ferrés, JorgenoFuzzy equivalence, Fuzzy preorder, Fuzzy relation, Indistinguishability operator, L-relation, T-transitivityFuzzy transitivity is a key property for many fuzzy relational structures, such as fuzzy preorders and equivalences.

Title: Modelling a linguistic variable as a hierarchical family of partitions induced by an indistinguishability operator
Authors: Soto, De A R; Recasens Ferrés, Jorge
Abstract: This work shows a method to obtain a hierarchy of partitions on the universe [0,1] in such a way that each of them is compatible with a refinement of Lukasiewicz indistinguishability operator. The classes of the partition at a given level present a relation of antonymy between them. Moreover, the partition at a certain level can be seen as the refinement of a previous level by means of a class of linguistic modifiers. Due to this fact, they seem appropriate for modeling linguistic labels of a linguistic variable. The associated indistinguishability operators show the increasing granularity when the number of classes rises up.Wed, 15 May 2013 11:39:15 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/192462013-05-15T11:39:15ZSoto, De A R; Recasens Ferrés, JorgenoThis work shows a method to obtain a hierarchy of partitions on the universe [0,1] in such a way that each of them is compatible with a refinement of Lukasiewicz indistinguishability operator.

Abstract: This paper deals with the measurement of entropy when an indistinguishability relation on the set of events has been defined. Our approach states that entropy could be measured in terms of the observed distinguishability of the set of events. In this sense, the “observer paradigm” is introduced, and definitions for joint and conditional entropy under this paradigm are given. We also present some interesting properties and relationships with Shannon's entropy measure.Wed, 15 May 2013 10:58:59 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/192422013-05-15T10:58:59ZRecasens Ferrés, Jorge; Hernández, EnoThis paper deals with the measurement of entropy when an indistinguishability relation on the set of events has been defined.
