Continuity of fuzzy multifunctions

Received01 Oct 1997
Revised01 Jul 1998


We define the upper and lower inverse of a fuzzy multifunction and prove basic identities. Then by using these ideas we introduce the concept of hemicontinuity and obtain many interesting properties of lower and upper hemicontinuous fuzzy multifunctions. Using the notion of hemicontinuity, we also characterize closed and open fuzzy mappings.
