about this item
Provides a unique and methodologically consistent treatment of various areas of fuzzy modeling and includes results of formal mathematical logic and linguistics
This book presents a unique view on the subject of fuzzy modeling based on thirty years of theoretical research as well as development of various kinds of applications. It addresses consistent and appropriate treatment of the notions of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic and their applications. The authors provide two complementary views on fuzzy modeling and fuzzy control, which are based on fuzzy IF-THEN rules. The first, more traditional rule is fuzzy approximation and the theory of fuzzy relations. The second approach is based on a combination of formal fuzzy logic and linguistics. Further important methodology covered in this book is the so-called F-transform. Applications based on these theoretical principles are described in separate chapters and include fuzzy control, fuzzy cluster analysis, image processing, and time series analysis and forecasting, making this book of interest to students and researchers in fuzzy logic as well as practitioners in industry.
