#### Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to study theory of two different kinds of -layer order-preserving operator space, namely, -*opos* and -*opos*. The former kind of space is formed by -layer function in *L*-fuzzy order-preserving operator space. The later kind of space is derived by local -remote neighborhood function, which is related with -*opos* and -ideal. We study characteristic properties of the two kinds of spaces, respectively, and give some applications to show the intimate relations under two different -*oposs*.

#### 1. Introduction

In general topology, Vaidyanathaswamy firstly defined concepts of local function and its derived ideal topology from initial topology and ideal [1]. Some interesting extensive works were done by JankoviΔ and Hamlett [2]. After M. E. Abd El-Monsef introduced the concept of -open set, many researchers were devoted to research on local semitopology. There are many local semiopen sets, such as --open set, strong --open set, and --open set [3β5]. All of these local semiopen sets are given by comparing interior and closure operators in the initial topology and its ideal derived topology.

By utilizing *q*-neighborhood which is mentioned in [6], Sarkar generalized the concepts of local function and derived topology into fuzzy topology in 1997 [7].

As there is a layer structure in -fuzzy topology, fuzzy local functions and their derived fuzzy ideal topology must be more complex. Hence, in this paper, we will analyze the ideal topological properties in terms of layer structure of -fuzzy topology and reveal the inner relations between -layer ideal space and fuzzy ideal topological space.

In the first part of the paper, we establish the theory of -*opos*. We introduce the concept of -layer function in -fuzzy order-preserving operator space. Then, based on its basic properties, we form -*opos*. We also prove it preserves many good properties. In the second part of the paper, we establish the theory of -*opos*. It is a -layer space with local topological properties. We introduce the concept of local -remote neighborhood function via an -*opos* and an -ideal. On the basis of its basic properties, we form -*opos*. It is finer than the old one. We observe the structures of local -remote neighborhood functions under different -ideals and -*opos* as well as the relations of the correspondent -*opos*. We also obtain some equivalent conditions of -*opos* under compatibility of -ideal and -*opos*. Finally, as an application, we define four kinds of connectivity and reveal their inner relations.
