Certain results on metric and norm in fuzzy multiset setting

J. M. Agbetayo, P. A. Ejegwa


Fuzzy multiset is an extension of fuzzy set in multiset framework. In this paper, we review the concept of fuzzy multisets and study the notions of metric and norm on fuzzy multiset. Some results on metric and norm are established in fuzzy multiset context.
