## Abstract

Considering L being a complete Heyting algebra, this paper mainly proposes a general framework of L-rough approximate operators in which constructive and axiomatic approaches are used. In the constructive approach, upper and lower L-rough approximate operators are introduced and their connections with L-relations are investigated. In the axiomatic approach, various types of set-theoretic L-operators are defined. It is shown that each type of L-rough approximate operators corresponding to special kind of L-relations, including serial, reflexive, symmetric, transitive, mediate, Euclidean and adjoint L-relations as well as their compositions, can be characterized by single axioms.
