#### Abstract

The concept of intuitionistic fuzzy *β*-almost compactness and intuitionistic
fuzzy *β*-nearly compactness in intuitionistic fuzzy topological spaces is introduced and
studied. Besides giving characterizations of these spaces, we study some of their properties.
Also, we investigate the behavior of intuitionistic fuzzy *β*-compactness, intuitionistic fuzzy
*β*-almost compactness, and intuitionistic fuzzy *β*-nearly compactness under several types of
intuitionistic fuzzy continuous mappings.

#### 1. Introduction

As a generalization of fuzzy sets introduced by Zadeh [1], the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy set was introduced by Atanassov [2]. Coker [3] introduced intuitionistic fuzzy topological spaces. Later on, Coker [3] introduced fuzzy compactness in intuitionistic fuzzy topological spaces. In [4], the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy -compactness was defined. In this paper some properties of intuitionistic fuzzy -compactness were investigated. We use the finite intersection property to give characterization of the intuitionistic fuzzy -compact spaces. Also we introduce intuitionistic fuzzy -almost compactness and intuitionistic fuzzy -nearly compactness and established the relationships between these types of compactness.
