ABSTRACT

In this paper we introduce the notion of the Henstock-Stieltjes (HS) integrals of interval-valued functions and fuzzy-number-valued functions and discuss some of their properties.

1. Introduction

As it is well known, the Henstock (H) integral for a real function was first defined by Henstock [1] in 1963. The Henstock (H) integral is a lot powerful and easier than the Lebesgue, Wiener and Richard Phillips Feynman integrals. Furthermore, it is also equal to the Denjoy and the Perron integrals [1] [2] . In 2000, Congxin Wu and Zengtai Gong [3] introduced the notion of the Henstock (H) integrals of interval-valued functions and fuzzy- number-valued functions and obtained a number of their properties. In 2016, Yoon [4] introduced the interval- valued Henstock-Stieltjes integral on time scales and investigated some properties of these integrals. In 1998, Lim et al. [5] introduced the notion of the Henstock-Stieltjes (HS) integral of real-valued function which was a generalization of the Henstock (H) integral and obtained its properties.

In this paper, we tend to introduce the notion of the Henstock-Stieltjes (HS) integrals of interval-valued functions and fuzzy-number-valued functions and discuss some of their properties.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section two, we tend to give the preliminary terminology used in the present paper. Section three is dedicated to discussing the Henstock-Stieltjes (HS) integral of interval-valued functions. In Section four, we tend to introduce the Henstock-Stieltjes (HS) integral of fuzzy-number-valued functions. The last section provides conclusions.

Definition 2.1 [1] [2] Let be a positive real-valued function. is called a d- fine division, if the subsequent conditions are satisfied:

1),

2)

For brevity, we write, wherever denotes a typical interval in P and is that the associated point of.

Definition 2.2 [1] [2] A real-valued function is called Henstock (H) integrable to A on if for each, there exists a function such that for any d-fine division of, we have

(14)

Conversely, let, then there exists a unique with the property, given

there exists a such that for any -fine division, we have

From Theorem 3.2 and Lemma 4.1 we have
