This paper introduces a flexible extension of rough set theory: multi-adjoint fuzzy rough sets, in which a family of adjoint pairs are considered to compute the lower and upper approximations. This new setting increases the number of applications in which rough set theory can be used. An important feature of the presented framework is that the user may represent explicit preferences among the objects in a decision system, by associating a particular adjoint triple with any pair of objects.
