Description

A First Course in Fuzzy Logic, Third Edition continues to provide the ideal introduction to the theory and applications of fuzzy logic. This best-selling text provides a firm mathematical basis for the calculus of fuzzy concepts necessary for designing intelligent systems and a solid background for readers to pursue further studies and real-world applications.

New in the Third Edition:

A section on type-2 fuzzy sets - a topic that has received much attention in the past few years

Additional material on copulas and t-norms

More discussions on generalized modus ponens and the compositional rule of inference

Complete revision to the chapter on possibility theory

Significant expansion of the chapter on fuzzy integrals

Many new exercises

With its comprehensive updates, this new edition presents all the background necessary for students and professionals to begin using fuzzy logic in its many-and rapidly growing- applications in computer science, mathematics, statistics, and engineering.
