Fuzzy Logic has gained increasing acceptance as a way to deal with complexity and uncertainty in many areas of science and engineering. This book is the first to address its practical applications to chemical systems. Ten distinguished authors discuss the role of fuzzy logic in the characterization of a variety of chemical concepts, including chirality, quantum systems, molecular engineering and design, and hierarchical classification methods. Fuzzy Logic in Chemistry will appeal to both students and professionals who are seeking to learn more about theory and applications in an area of growing importance to the physical sciences.

Back cover copy

In recent years fuzzy logic has gained widespread acceptance in many areas of science and technology as a powerful approach to the treatment of uncertainty in complex systems. This book, which begins with a foreword by the founder of fuzzy logic, Professor Lotfi A. Zadeh of the University of California at Berkeley, is the first to explore the role fuzzy logic in chemistry. Nine distinguished authors not only provide the necessary theoretical background but also describe the practical aspects of fuzzy theory in all of the significant areas of chemical application.

Review quote

"...the book provides a useful introduction to potential chemical applications,..." --CHEMISTRY AND INDUSTRY

"...the book is a good summary of current applications of fuzzy logic in chemistry. It provides a thought-provoking examination of the way chemists think about struture. In addition, the application oriented chapters illustrate the utility of fuzzy logic for understanding spectra and structures." --JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL INFORMATION AND COMPUTER SCIENCE
