Soft set theory was first proposed by Molodtsov in 1999, and is commonly used as a mathematical tool for analysis of uncertain objects, fuzzy objects, or objects that cannot be precisely defined.
By contrast, fuzzy set theory permits the gradual assessment of the membership of elements in a set; this is described with the aid of a membership function valued in the closed unit interval [0, 1].

IIS: 14) But the appeal to modern mathematics (as set theory used to be known in Europe) does have a modernizing aspect, and it is important to note that the new revolutionary theory retains connections to a paradigm of modern scientific rationality.
In particular Maddy's occasional reference to V (the universe of ZFC) as 'the universe that set theory is investigating' (63, cf.
The Russians who developed descriptive set theory and assigned names to subsets of the continuum posed the possibilities of the existence of new entities in the mathematical universe, and they went on to provide a program for future research which resulted in substantial agreement of mathematicians all over the world about the new entities.
ZFK formulated here has been constructed, like ZFC, to axiomatize the "naive" set theory of G.
Since set theory relies on the (according to my chosen premises, non-valid) modern logical axiom of identity, I infer that the premises of the WIE mathematical theory of sets violate the premises of non-Aristotelian systems-set theory does not and cannot survive general-semantics-based scrutiny.
This paper investigates the potential of intuitionistic fuzzy soft set theory in real-time flood warning.
