A New Fuzzy Set Theory Satisfying All Classical Set Formulas

Abstract
A new fuzzy set theory, Cfuzzy set theory, is introduced in this paper. It is a particular case of the classical set theory and satisfies all formulas of the classical set theory. To add a limitation to Cfuzzy set system, in which all fuzzy sets must be "nonuniform inclusive" to each other, then it forms a family of subsystems, the Zfuzzy set family. It can be proved that the Z_{0}fuzzy set system, one of Zfuzzy set systems, is equivalent to Zadeh's fuzzy set system. Analysis shows that 1) Zadeh's fuzzy set system defines the relations A=B and between two fuzzy sets A and B as "f" and ``'' respectively is inappropriate, because it makes all fuzzy sets be "nonuniformly inclusive"; 2) it is also inappropriate to define two fuzzy sets' union and intersection operations as the max and min of their grades of membership, because this prevents fuzzy set's ability to correctly reflect different kinds of fuzzy phenomenon in the natural world. Then it has to work around the problem by invent unnatural functions that are hard to understand, such as augmenting max and min for union and intersection to mina+b, 1 and maxa+b1, 0, but these functions are incorrect on inclusive case. If both pairs of definitions are used together, not only are they unnatural, but also they are still unable to cover all possible set relationships in the natural world; and 3) it is incorrect to define the set complement as , because it can be proved that set complement cannot exist in Zadeh's fuzzy set, and it causes confusion in logic and thinking. And it is seriously mistaken to believe that logics of fuzzy sets necessarily go against classical and normal thinking, logic, and conception. The Cfuzzy set theory proposed in this paper overcomes all of the above errors and shortcomings, and more reasonably reflects fuzzy phenomenon in the natural world. It satisfies all relations, formulas, and operations of the classical set theory. It is consistent with normal, natural, and classical thinking, logic, and concepts.
