Abstract

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 in which is a non-empty set with four binary operations and two constants 0 and 1 satisfying the following axioms:

  • BL-1: is a bounded lattice;

  • BL-2: is an abelian monoid; which means that $\ast $ is commutative and associative with ;

  • BL-3: iff (residuation);

  • BL-4: (divisibility);

  • BL-5: (prelinearity);

A BL-algebra is called a MV-algebra if or equivalently where
