Book: Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic: Theory and Applications
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Reflecting the tremendous advances that have taken place in the study of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic from 1988 to the present, this book not only details the theoretical advances in these areas, but considers a broad variety of applications of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic as well. Theoretical aspects of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic are covered in Part I of the text, including: basic types of fuzzy sets; connections between fuzzy sets and crisp sets; the various aggregation operations of fuzzy sets; fuzzy numbers and arithmetic operations on fuzzy numbers; fuzzy relations and the study of fuzzy relation equations. Part II is devoted to applications of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic, including: various methods for constructing membership functions of fuzzy sets; the use of fuzzy logic for approximate reasoning in expert systems; fuzzy systems and controllers; fuzzy databases; fuzzy decision making; and engineering applications. For everyone interested in an introduction to fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic. Provides the reader with comprehensive coverage of theoretical foundations of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic, as well as a broad overview of the increasingly important applications of these novel areas of mathematics.
