In fuzzy optimization we wish to maximize, or minimize, a fuzzy set (which is usually the value of a fuzzy function) subject to some fuzzy constraints. However, we can not maximize, or minimize, a fuzzy set, so we do what is commonly done in the area of finance where they wish to maximize (minimize) the value of a random variable whose values are restricted by a probability density function.
