## Smarandache Fuzzy Algebra

**Authors:** W. B. Vasantha Kandasamy

In 1965, Lofti A. Zadeh introduced the notion of a fuzzy subset of a set as
a method for representing uncertainty. It provoked, at first (and as
expected), a strong negative reaction from some influential scientists and
mathematicians - many of whom turned openly hostile. However, despite
the controversy, the subject also attracted the attention of other
mathematicians and in the following years, the field grew enormously,
finding applications in areas as diverse as washing machines to
handwriting recognition. In its trajectory of stupendous growth, it has also
come to include the theory of fuzzy algebra and for the past five decades,
several researchers have been working on concepts like fuzzy semigroup,
fuzzy groups, fuzzy rings, fuzzy ideals, fuzzy semirings, fuzzy near-rings
and so on.
