# Fuzzy b-Metric Spaces

## Keywords:

Fuzzy b-metric spaces, fuzzy quasi-b-metric, fuzzy quasi-pseudo-bmetric, b-metric space## Abstract

Metric spaces and their various generalizations occur frequently in computer science applications. This is the reason why, in this paper, we introduced and studied the concept of fuzzy b-metric space, generalizing, in this way, both the notion of fuzzy metric space introduced by I. Kramosil and J. Michálek and the concept of b-metric space. On the other hand, we introduced the concept of fuzzy quasi-bmetric space, extending the notion of fuzzy quasi metric space recently introduced by V. Gregori and S. Romaguera. Finally, a decomposition theorem for a fuzzy quasipseudo- b-metric into an ascending family of quasi-pseudo-b-metrics is established. The use of fuzzy b-metric spaces and fuzzy quasi-b-metric spaces in the study of denotational semantics and their applications in control theory will be an important next step.## References
