#### Abstract

The notion of unisoft subfields, unisoft algebras over unisoft subfields, and unisoft hypervector spaces are introduced, and their properties and characterizations are considered. In connection with linear transformations, unisoft hypervector spaces are discussed.

#### 1. Introduction

The hyperstructure theory was introduced by Marty [1] at the 8th Congress of Scandinavian Mathematicians in 1934. As a generalization of fuzzy vector spaces, the fuzzy hypervector spaces are studied by Ameri and Dehghan (see [2, 3]). Molodtsov [4] introduced the concept of soft set as a new mathematical tool for dealing with uncertainties that is free from the difficulties that have troubled the usual theoretical approaches. Molodtsov pointed out to several directions for the applications of soft sets. At present, works on the soft set theory are progressing rapidly. Maji et al. [5] described the application of soft set theory to a decision-making problem. Maji et al. [6] also studied several operations on the theory of soft sets. Chen et al. [7] presented a new definition of soft set parametrization reduction and compared this definition to the related concept of attributes reduction in rough set theory. The algebraic structure of set theories dealing with uncertainties has been studied by some authors. Çağman et al. [8] introduced fuzzy parameterized (FP) soft sets and their related properties. They proposed a decision-making method based on FP soft set theory and provided an example which shows that the method can be successfully applied to the problems that contain uncertainties. Feng [9] considered the application of soft rough approximations in multicriteria group decision-making problems. Aktaş and Çağman [10] studied the basic concepts of soft set theory and compared soft sets to fuzzy and rough sets, providing examples to clarify their differences. They also discussed the notion of soft groups. After that, many algebraic properties of soft sets are studied (see [11–21]).

In this paper, we introduce the notion of unisoft subfields, unisoft algebras over unisoft subfields, and unisoft hypervector spaces. We study their properties and characterizations. In connection with linear transformations, we discuss unisoft hypervector spaces.
