In this paper the idea of bipolar valued fuzzy α-ideal of BF algebra is proposed. The relationship between bipolar valued fuzzy ideal and bipolar valued fuzzy α-ideal is studied. Some interesting results are also discussed.

1. Introduction

After the concept of fuzzy sets of Zadeh [1] , Lee [2] proposed an extension of fuzzy sets namely Bipolar Valued Fuzzy Sets (BVFS). Their range of membership degree has been extended from the interval [0, 1] to [−1, 1] and in [3] . He made a comparison with other fuzzy settings. These Bipolar valued fuzzy sets possess degrees of membership that denote the degree of satisfaction to the property corresponding to a fuzzy set and its counter- property in a bipolar valued fuzzy set. The membership degree 0 refers that the elements are irrelevant to the corresponding property. Further, the membership degrees (0, 1] show that the elements somewhat satisfy the property, and the membership degrees [−1, 0) denote that the elements somewhat satisfy the implicit counter property.

There are two kinds of representations in the definition of bipolar valued fuzzy sets. They are canonical representation and reduced representation. In this work, the canonical representation of bipolar valued fuzzy sets is utilized.

In 2011, Bipolar valued fuzzy K-subalgebras are discussed by Farhat Nisar [4] . The authors of [5] studied the concepts of Intuitionistic L-fuzzy p-ideals of BF-algebras and their related results.

Inspired by the concepts recently, the concept of Filters of BCH-Algebras Based on Bipolar-Valued Fuzzy Sets [6] has been discussed. In this paper, these concepts are intended to α-ideal of BF-algebras and bipolar valued fuzzy α-ideal of a BF-algebra is proposed. The nature of the homomorphic images of bipolar valued fuzzy α-ideal of a BF-algebra is also analyzed.

The paper is organized as follows: Section 2 provides the preliminaries. In Section 3, Bipolar valued fuzzy α-ideal is discussed and in Section 4, homomorphism on Bipolar valued fuzzy α-ideal is studied. Section 5 gives the conclusion.

2.2. Basic Results on Bipolar Valued Fuzzy Set

Fuzzy sets are generally useful mathematical structures which represent a collection of objects whose boundary is vague. Several kinds of fuzzy set extensions are there in the fuzzy set theory. The examples are intuitionistic fuzzy sets, interval-valued fuzzy sets, vague sets, etc. This section starts with the definition of Bipolar Valued Fuzzy Set.

The positive membership degree denotes the satisfaction degree of an element x to the property corresponding to a bipolar valued fuzzy set and the negative membership degree

denotes the satisfaction degree of an element x to some implicit counter-property corresponding to a bi-

polar valued fuzzy set If and x is regarded as possessing only positive satisfaction for. If and it denotes that x does not satisfy the property of but somewhat satisfies the counter property of. It is possible for an element x to be such that and when the membership function of the property overlaps that of its counter property over some portion of X. For the sake of simplicity, the symbol shall be used for the bipolar valued fuzzy set

5. Conclusion

From the preliminaries of this research work, Bipolar valued fuzzy sets of various researchers are analyzed. Especially, for the present work stated in this paper, an investigation on the Bipolar valued fuzzy α-ideals of BF-algebras has been carried out. From the investigation, several interesting results are observed. As a result, the research has been focused on this way and all the possible ways are found out to prove this strategy. The surprising point is that in [7] Andrzej Walendziak, theorem 2.11 says that the structure of BF algebra becomes a BG-algebra and the proof is followed directly from the definition. Hence, it is concluded that all the results prove here for BF-algebras can directly be carried over to BG-algebras.
