In this paper we define some operations such as P-union, P-intersection, R-union, R-intersection for neutrosophic cubic soft sets (NCSSs). We prove some theorems on neutrosophic cubic soft sets. We also discuss various approaches of Internal Neutrosophic Cubic Soft Sets (INCSSs) and external neutrosophic cubic soft sets (ENCSSs). We also investigate some of their properties.

Neutrosophic set [1] grounded by Smarandache in 1998, is the generalization of fuzzy set [2] introduced by Zadeh in 1965 and intuitionistic fuzzy set [3] by Atanassov in 1983. In 1999, Molodstov [4] introduced the soft set theory to overcome the inadequate of existing theory related to uncertainties. Soft set theory is free from the parameterization inadequacy syndrome of fuzzy set theory [2], rough set theory [5], probability theory for dealing with uncertainty. The concept of soft set theory penetrates in many directions such as fuzzy soft set [6-9], intuitionistic fuzzy soft set [10-13], interval valued intuitionistic fuzzy soft set [14], neutrosophic soft set [15-18], interval neutrosophic set [19,20]. In 2012, Jun et al. [21] introduced cubic set combining fuzzy set and interval valued fuzzy set. Jun et al. [21] also defined internal cubic set, external cubic set, P-union, R-union, P-intersection and R-intersection of cubic sets, and investigated several related properties. Cubic set theory is applied to CI-algebras [22], B-algebras [23], BCK/BCI-algebras [24,25], KU-Algebras ([26,27], and semi-groups [28]. Using fuzzy set and interval-valued fuzzy set Abdullah et al. [29] proposed the notion of cubic soft set [29] and defined internal cubic soft set, external cubic soft set, P-union, R-union, P-intersection and R-intersection of cubic soft sets, and investigated several related properties. Ali et al. [30] studied generalized cubic soft sets and their applications to algebraic structures. Wang et al. [31] introduced the concept of interval neutrosophic set. In 2016, Ali et al. [32] presented the concept of neutrosophic cubic set by combining the concept of neutrosophic set and interval neutrosophic set. Ali et al. [32] mentioned that neutrosophic cubic set is basically the generalization of cubic set. Ali et al. [32] also defined some new type of internal neutrosophic cubic set (INCSs) and external neutrosophic cubic set (ENCSs) namely, . Ali et al. [32] also presented a numerical problem for pattern recognition. Jun et al. [33] also studied neutrosophic cubic set and proved some properties. In 2016, Chinnadurai et al. [34] introduced the neutrosophic cubic soft sets and proved some properties.

In this paper we discuss some new operations and new approach of internal and external neutrosophic cubic soft sets, and P-union, R-union, P-intersection, R-intersection. We also prove some theorems related to neutrosophic cubic soft sets.

Rest of the paper is presented as follows. Section 2 presents some basic definition of neutrosophic sets, interval-valued neutrosophic sets, soft sets, cubic set, neutrosophic cubic sets and their basic operation. Section 3 is devoted to presents some new theorems related to neutrosophic cubic soft sets. Section 4 presents conclusions and future scope of research.

**Preliminaries**

In this section, we recall some well-established definitions and properties which are related to the present study.

**Definition 1: Neutrosophic set [1]**

Let U be the space of points with generic element in U denoted by u. A neutrosophic set λ in U is defined as λ={<u, t^{λ} (u), i^{λ} (u), f^{λ} (u)>:u∈U} , where t^{λ} (u):U →]^{-} 0, 1^{+} [,i^{λ} (u):U →]^{-} 0, 1^{+} [, and f^{λ} (u):U →]^{-} 0, 1^{+} [ and − 0 ≤ t^{λ} (u)+ i^{λ} (u)+f^{λ} (u) ≤3^{+}.

**Definition 2: Interval value neutrosophic set [31]**

Let U be the space of points with generic element in U denoted by u. An interval neutrosophic set A in U is characterized by truthmembership function t_{A}, the indeterminacy function i_{A} and falsity membership function f_{A}. For each u∈U, t_{A} (u), i_{A} (u), f_{A} (u) ⊆ [0, 1] and A is defined as

A={<u, [ t^{+}A (u), t^{+}A (u)], [ i^{−}A (u), i^{+}A (u)], [ f^{−}A (u), f^{+}A (u)]:u∈U}.

**Definition 3: Neutrosophic cubic set [32]**

Let U be the space of points with generic element in U denoted by u∈U. A neutrosophic cubic set in U defined as ={< u, A (u), λ (u) >: u∈U} in which A (u) is the interval valued neutrosophic set and λ(u) is the neutrosophic set in U. A neutrosophic cubic set in U denoted by = <A, λ>. We use C(U) as a notation which implies that collection of all neutrosophic cubic sets in U.

**Definition 4: Soft set [4]**

Let U be the initial universe set and E be the set of parameters. Then soft set FK over U is defined by F_{K} ={< u, F (e)>: e ∈ K, F (e) ∈P (U)}

Where F: K → P (U), P (U) is the power set of U and K ⊂ E.

**Definition 5: Neutrosophic cubic soft set [34]**

A soft set is said to be neutrosophic cubic soft set iff is the mapping from K to the set of all neutrosophic cubic sets in U (i.e., C(U) ).

i.e. : K→C(U) , where K is any subset of parameter set E and U is the initial universe set.

Neutrosophic cubic soft set is defined by

Where, A(e_{i}) is the interval valued neutrosophic soft set and λ(e_{i}) is the neutrosophic soft set.

**Definition: Internal neutrosophic cubic soft set (INCSS)**

A neutrosophic cubic soft set is said to be INCSS if for all e_{i}∈ K E

**Definition: External neutrosophic cubic soft set (ENCSS)**

A neutrosophic cubic soft set is said to be ENCSS if for all e_{i}∈ K E
