Abstract

In this paper, we introduce the concepts of g and b approximations via general ordered topological approximation spaces. Also, increasing (decreasing) g, b boundary, positive and negative regions are given in general ordered topological approximation spaces (GOTAS, for short). Some important properties of them were investigated. From this study, we can say that studying any properties of rough set concepts via GOTAS is a generalization of Pawlak approximation spaces and general approximation spaces.

1. Introduction

Rough set theory was first proposed by Pawlak for dealing with vagueness and granularity in information systems. Various generalizations of Pawlak s rough set have been made by replacing equivalence relations with kinds of binary relations and many results about generalized rough set with the universe being finite were obtained [1] - [7] . An interesting and natural research topic in rough set theory is studying it via topology [8] [9] . Neighborhood systems were first applied in generalizing rough sets in 1998 by T. Y. Lin as a generalization of topological connections with rough sets. Lin also introduced the concept of granular computing as a form of topological generalizations [10] - [13] . In this paper, we give the concept of g, b via topological ordered spaces and studied their properties which may be viewed as a generalization of previous studies in general approximation spaces, as if we take the partially ordered relation as an equal relation, we obtain the concepts in general approximation spaces [14] .

4. Conclusion

In this paper, we generalize rough set theory in the framework of topological spaces. Our results in this paper became the results about of, approximation in [2] in the case of is the equal relation. Also, the new approximation which we give became as Pawlak s approximation in the case of is the equal relation and R is the equivalence relation. This theory brings in all these techniques to information analysis and knowledge processing.
