In this paper, the author examines the notion of n-fold fantastic and fuzzy n-fold fantastic filters in BL-algebras. Several characterizations of fuzzy n-fold fantastic filters are given. The author shows that every n-fold (fuzzy n-fold) fantastic filter is a filter (fuzzy filter), but the converse is not true. Using a level set of a fuzzy set in a BL-algebra, the author gives a characterization of fuzzy n-fold fantastic filters. Finally, the author establishes the extension property for n-fold and fuzzy n-fold fantastic filters in BL-algebras. The author also constructs some algorithms for folding theory applied to fantastic filters in BL-algebras.

2. Preliminaries

A BL-algebra is a structure jalr.2011100104.m01 in which jalr.2011100104.m02 is a non-empty set with four binary operations jalr.2011100104.m03 and two constants 0 and 1 satisfying the following axioms:

  • BL-1 jalr.2011100104.m04 is a bounded lattice;

  • BL-2 jalr.2011100104.m05 is an abelian monoid; which means that $\ast $ is commutative and associative with jalr.2011100104.m06;

  • BL-3 jalr.2011100104.m07 iff jalr.2011100104.m08 (residuation);

  • BL-4 jalr.2011100104.m09 (divisibility);

  • BL-5 jalr.2011100104.m10 (prelinearity);

A BL-algebra jalr.2011100104.m11 is called a MV-algebra if jalr.2011100104.m12, or equivalently jalr.2011100104.m13 where jalr.2011100104.m14.
