The concept of rough set theory is a mathematical approach to uncertainly and vagueness in data analysis, introduced by Zdzislaw Pawlak in 1980s. Rough set theory assumes the underlying structure of knowledge is a partition. We have extended Pawlak’s concept of knowledge to coverings. We have taken a soft approach regarding any generalized subset as a basic knowledge. We regard a covering as basic knowledge from which the theory of knowledge approximations and learning, knowledge dependency and reduct are developed.
