    DescriptionThis work is by two of the leading researchers in the field of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic. It deals with the notions of fuzzy numbers with levels of perception and levels of presumption. Many new results, examples and novel applications in engineering and management science are presented. This approach makes the book interesting and easy to understand, and provides mathematical tools which readers may find useful in the study of their own problems. Of particular interest are the discussions of applications in areas employing zero-based budgeting, the Delphi method, critical path optimization, reliability modelling, filtering and transportation. The first section is devoted to the theoretical basis for these mathematical models. The second part deals with a variety of applications in engineering and management science. There are also seven appendices which contain some special mathematical operations (Minkowaski's operations) on fuzzy quantities and detailed biographical material.
