The problem of solving a fuzzy relational equation plays an important role in fuzzy systems. In this paper, we investigate the uniqueness of solutions of fuzzy relational equations regarding Max-av composition through the relationship between minimal solutions and minimal coverage. A method for verifying the strong regularity of matrices in fuzzy Max-av algebra is proposed in the paper.
