**Speech Title**: A Peano theorem for fuzzy dierential equations with evolving membership grade

**Abstract**: Classical fuzzy dierential equations dened in terms of the Hukuhara derivative depend critically
on the convexity of the level sets and result in expanding level sets. Here Hullermeier's suggestion of
dening fuzzy dierential equations at each level set via dierential inclusions is combined with ideas
of Aubin on morphological equations, which allow nonlocal set evolution, to remove the assumption
of fuzzy convexity and thus to allow fuzzy dierential equations to be dened for non-convex level
sets.

This approach uses reachable sets as a more general form of set integration and, in contrast to
the Aumann set integral, does not necessarily give rise to convex sets. The results presented are even
more general since they concern fuzzy sets that need be only closed without additional assumptions
of convexity, compactness or even normality. In particular, an existence and uniqueness theorem is
established under the assumption that the right-hand sides satisfy a one-sided Lipschitz condition
rather than a much stronger Lipschitz condition.

The Peano theorem on the existence without possible uniqueness of solutions has been a perplexing
problem in the theory of fuzzy dierential equations. The diculty appears to be due to
the standard use of the supremum metric dist1 dened by the supremum over the Hausdor metric
between the level sets of the fuzzy sets. Another may have been the classical formulation of fuzzy
dierential equations in terms of the Hukuhara derivative of the level sets.

A Peano theorem is established here for fuzzy dierential equations formulated by combining
Hullermeier's suggestion of dening fuzzy dierential equations at each level set via dierential
inclusions with Aubin's morphological equations, which allow non-local set evolution. A major
dierence from previous publications is the use of the endograph metric distendo, essentially the
Hausdor metric between the endographs in Rn[0; 1] of fuzzy sets, instead of the supremum metric
dist1 Another is that the membership grades of the fuzzy sets are also allowed to evolve under
the fuzzy dierential equations. The result applies for a very general class of fuzzy sets without
additional assumptions of fuzzy convexity, compact supports or even normality.
