# On Tri-*α*-Open Sets in Fuzzifying Tritopological Spaces

**Academic Editor:**Patricia Melin

#### Abstract

In this paper, we introduced and studied (1,2,3)-*α*-open set, (1,2,3)-*α*-neighborhood system, (1,2,3)-*α*-derived, (1,2,3)-*α*-closure, (1,2,3)-*α*-interior, (1,2,3)-*α*-exterior, (1,2,3)-*α*-boundary, (1,2,3)-*α*-convergence of nets, and (1,2,3)-*α*-convergence of filters in fuzzifying tritopological spaces.

#### 1. Introduction

The fuzzy set is an important concept, which was introduced for the first time in 1965 by Zadeh [1]; it was then used in many studies in various fields. Here, we are interested in fuzzy with topology. The fuzzy and fuzzifying topologies are two branches of fuzzy mathematics. The basic concepts and properties of fuzzy topologies were subedited and investigated by Chang in 1968 [2] and Wong in 1974 [3]. After that, so many works of literature have appeared for different kinds of fuzzy topological spaces for, e.g., [4–8]. In 1991-1993, Ying introduced a new approach for fuzzy topology with fuzzy logic and established some properties in fuzzifying topology [9–11]. Also, we are interested in the concept of *α*-open set which was introduced by Njåstad in 1965 [12], and the tritopological space which was first initiated by Kovar in 2000 [13]. In 2017, Tapi and Sharma introduced *α*-open sets in tritopological spaces [14]. In 1999, Khedr et al. presented semiopen sets and semicontinuity in fuzzifying topology [15]. In 2016, Allam and et al. studied semiopen sets in fuzzifying bitopological spaces [16]. We will use in this paper Ying's basic fuzzy logic formulas with appropriate set theoretical notations from [9, 10].

The following are some useful definitions and results that will be used in the rest of the present work.
