## Abstract

Since transitivity is quite often violated even by decision makers that accept transitivity in their preferences as a condition for consistency, a standard approach to deal with intransitive preference elicitations is the search for a close enough transitive preference relation, assuming that such a violation is mainly due to decision maker estimation errors. In some way, the higher the number of elicitations, the more probable is inconsistency. This is mostly the case within a fuzzy framework, even when the number of alternatives or objects to be classified is relatively small. In this paper, we propose a fast method to compute a T-indistinguishability from a reflexive and symmetric fuzzy

relation, T being any left-continuous t-norm. The computed approximation we propose will have O(n3) time complexity, where n is the number of elements under consideration, and is expected to produce a T-transitive opening. To the authors’ knowledge, there is no other proposed algorithm that computes T-transitive lower approximations or openings while preserving the reflexivity and symmetry properties.
