Quotient space theory (QST), a new granule computing tool dealing with imprecise, incomplete and uncertain knowledge, uses a triplet, including the universe, its structure and attributes, to describe a problem space or simply a space. As one of important theories of granular computing (GrC), QST is very helpful to the study of cognitive informatics (CI). This article summarizes the quotient space’s model and its main principle. Then some basic operations on quotient space are introduced, and the significant properties of the fuzzy quotient space family are elaborated. Finally the main applications of quotient space theory are discussed.
