Totally ordered uncertain sets

It is known that some uncertain sets have membership functions, and some do not. How do we judge whether an uncertain set has a membership function? In order to answer this question, this paper presents a concept of totally ordered uncertain set, and shows that totally ordered uncertain sets always have membership functions if they are defined on a continuous uncertainty space. In addition, some criteria for judging the existence of membership functions for uncertain sets are provided. Several inspiring examples and counterexamples are also documented in this paper.
