Some applications on fuzzy (supra-) infra-\(\alpha\)-open (closed) sets, likely, fuzzy (supra-) infra-\(\alpha\)-continuous mappings, fuzzy (supra-) infra-\(\alpha\)-open (closed) mappings, fuzzy supra-\(\alpha\)- irresolute mapping and fuzzy supra-\(\alpha\)-connected space are introduced. The relations and converse relations between these new concepts and others kinds of fuzzy open sets and fuzzy continuous mappings are discussed. Special results about these new concepts are investigated and studied.</p> Hakeem Ahmed Ali Alanod M.
