Many mathematical advantages of intuitionistic fuzzy sets have been discussed. Coker [2] generalised topological structures in fuzzy topological spaces to intuitionistic fuzzy topological spaces using intuitionistic fuzzy sets. Later many researchers have studied topics related to intuitionistic fuzzy topological spaces. On the other hand, Coker [3] introduced the concept of ‘intuitionistic sets’ in 1996. This is a discrete form of intuitionistic fuzzy set, where all the sets are entirely crisp sets. Still, it has membership and non-membership degrees, so this concept gives us more flexible approaches to representing vagueness in mathematical objects including those in engineering fields with classical set logic. In 2000 Coker [4] also introduced the concept of intuitionistic topological spaces with intuitionistic set and investigated the basic properties of continuous functions and compactness. He and his colleague [5, 6] also examined separation axioms in intuitionistic topological spaces. 188 Maejo Int. J. Sci. Technol. 2016, 10(02), 187-196 PRELIMINARIES Definition 1 [3]. Let be a non-empty fixed set. An intuitionistic set ( ) is an object having the form , where and are subsets of satisfying . The set is called the set of members of , while is called the set of non-members of . Every crisp set on a non-empty set is obviously an having the form , and one can define several relations and operations between as follows: Definition 2 [3]. Let let be a non-empty set, be an arbitrary family of if and only if and if and only if ; ; ; and in , where ; ; be . Then if and only if ; ; ; and on , and and ; . The following are the basic properties of inclusion and complementation: Corollary 1 [3]. Let for each , and be in . Then for each ; ; ; ; . ; Now we generalise the concept of ‘intuitionistic fuzzy topological space’ to intuitionistic sets: Definition 3 [2]. An intuitionistic topology ( satisfying the following axioms: ) on a non-empty set is a family of in , for any , for any arbitrary family . In this case the pair is called an intuitionistic topological space ( known as an intuitionistic open set ( ) in . Example 1 [4]. Any topological space is obviously an whenever we identify a subset in with its counterpart Example 2 [4]. Let where ) and any in the form as before. and consider the family . Then is an Example 3 [4]. Let , on . , . Then is , and and consider the family where in , , is an on . Definition 4 [4].
