Volume X of the Transactions on Rough Sets (TRS) provides evidence of further growth in the rough set landscape, both in terms of its foundations and its applications. This volume of the TRS re?ects a number of research streams that were eitherdirectly orindirectly begunbytheseminalworkonroughsetsbyZdzis law 1 Pawlak (1926-2006) . This seminal work started with Zdzis law Pawlak's early 1970s work on knowledge description systems prior to his discovery of rough sets during the early 1980s. Evidence of the growth of various rough set-based 2 research streams can be found in the rough set database . This volume includes articles that are part of a special issue on "Foundations ofRoughSets"originallyproposedbyMihirChakraborty.Inadditiontoresearch on the foundations of rough sets, this volume of the TRS also presents papers that re?ect the profound in?uence of a number of other research initiatives by Zdzis law Pawlak. In particular, this volume introduces a number of new advances in the fo- dations of rough sets. These advances have signi?cant implications in a number of research areas such as entailment and approximation operators, extensions of informationsystems,informationentropyand granulation,lattices, multicriteria attractiveness evaluation of decision and association rules, ontological systems, rough approximation, and rough geometry in image analysis.

From the reviews:
"One of the main objectives of rough set theory is to find reasonable extensions for rough sets in known techniques and results about sets. ... I highly recommend this book to students and researchers who are already familiar with the basic ideas of rough set theory and want to learn about the latest developments. In principle, the book should also be accessible to other readers with a mathematical background, even if they are not very familiar with rough sets." (V. Kreinovich, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2010)
