In this paper, the idea of -bipolar fuzzy -ideals and an -bipolar fuzzy ideals of -algebras is delivered, and their related properties are investigated with the aid of some examples. We also provide the connection between -bipolar fuzzy ideals and bipolar fuzzy ideals and -bipolar fuzzy -ideals and bipolar fuzzy -ideals by way of counterexamples.

1. Introduction

In the real world, there are several difficult problems in engineering, medical science, economics, environment, social science, and other various fields involving incalculable data. Problems of this nature which are frequently encountered in our daily lives cannot be solved by classical mathematical methods. In 1965, the belief of fuzzy sets turned into was first delivered with the aid of Zadeh [1], which is an effective hand set for modelling indecision and elusiveness in numerous issues springing up inside the field of technology. For the ultimate four decades, the fuzzy idea has ended up as a very lively area of study, and plenty of developments have been made within the concept of fuzzy sets to find the fuzzy analogues of the classical set theory. The study of -algebras was initiated by Imai and Iséki [2, 3] in 1966 as showed in the concept of set-theoretic difference and propositional calculi. After that, many researchers investigated the fuzzification of ideals and subalgebras in -algebras.

Bipolar fuzzy sets are an extension of fuzzy sets whose membership degree range is [1, 1]. In a bipolar fuzzy set, the membership degree 0 of an element means that the element is irrelevant to the corresponding property, the membership degree (0, 1] of an element indicates that the element somewhat satisfies the property, and the membership degree [1, 0) of an element indicates that the element somewhat satisfies the implicit counterproperty. The idea which lies behind such description is connected with the existence of “bipolar information” (e.g., positive information and negative information) about the given set. Positive information represents what is granted to be possible, while negative information represents what is considered to be impossible. Actually, a wide variety of human decision-making is based on double-sided or bipolar judgmental thinking on a positive side and a negative side. For instance, cooperation and competition, friendship and hostility, common interests and conflict of interests, effect and side effect, likelihood and unlikelihood, and feedforward and feedback are often the two sides in decision and coordination. In traditional Chinese medicine, “yin” and “yang” are the two sides. Yin is the feminine or negative side of a system, and yang is the masculine or positive side of a system. The coexistence, equilibrium, and harmony of the two sides are considered a key for the mental and physical health of a person as well as for the stability and prosperity of a social system. Thus, bipolar fuzzy sets indeed have potential impacts on many fields, including artificial intelligence, computer science, information science, cognitive science, decision science, management science, economics, neural science, quantum computing, medical science, and social science. In 1998, the notion of bipolar fuzzy sets was proposed by Zhang [5, 6] as a generalization of fuzzy sets [1].

Bipolar-valued fuzzy units, which can be added by means of Lee [7], are an augmentation of fuzzy sets whose participation degree extend is broadened from the stretch [0, 1] to . Lee [8] involved the research with interval-valued fuzzy units, intuitionistic fuzzy units, and bipolar-valued fuzzy sets. Bipolar fuzzy sets have various applications in fuzzy algebras. For example, bipolar fuzzy ideals [4] in -semigroups, bipolar fuzzy subalgebras and ideals [7] of -algebras, bipolar fuzzy -ideals in -algebras, and bipolar valued fuzzy -algebras [9] are some of them. Bhakat and Das [10, 11] utilized the idea of -fuzzy subgroups by the usage of and among a fuzzy factor and a fuzzy subset. It is visible that -fuzzy subgroups are a critical generalization of Rosenfeld’s [12] fuzzy subgroup. Similar types of -fuzzy ideals of BCI-algebras are introduced by Zhan et al. [5]. Zhan et al. [13, 14] introduced three-way multiattribute decision-making based on outranking relations and multicriteria decision-making method based on a fuzzy rough set model with fuzzy -neighborhoods. Senapati et al. [15] introduced cubic intuitionistic implicative ideals of -algebras.

Jana et al. [16, 17] introduced generalizations of -intuitionistic fuzzy subalgebras and ideals of BCK/BCI-algebras with thresholds. Jana et al. [18] introduced the concept of -bipolar fuzzy -subalgebras and -bipolar fuzzy ideals of -algebras. These works are enough to motivate us, and, to the best of our knowledge, no other works are available on -bipolar fuzzy ideals and -ideals in -algebras and other fuzzy algebraic structures. For this reason, we have developed the theoretical study of -bipolar fuzzy ideals of -algebras and -bipolar fuzzy -ideals of -algebras. In this paper, the concepts of -bipolar fuzzy ideals are presented, and properties are established. Moreover, -bipolar fuzzy -ideals of -algebras are proposed, and their properties are examined in detail.
