If I may,

I have recieved a couple of references from Osmo Kaleva of Tampere

"On joint distributions of observables for F-quantum spaces"
by Dvurecenskij, Anatolij, and Riecan, Beloslav,
in Fuzzy Sets and Systems 39, No.1, 65-73 (1991)

"F-Quantum Spaces and their Dynamics"
by Markechova, Dagnar
in Fuzzy Sets and Systems 50, No.1, 78-88 (1992)

Can anyone snail mail me copies of these? I will pay all costs!

I am also interested in

"Fuzzy Subsethood"
by Virginia R. Young
in Fuzzy Sets and Systems 77, 371-384, March 1996.
