Description

What is fuzzy logic?--a system of concepts and methods for exploring modes of reasoning that are approximate rather than exact. While the engineering community has appreciated the advances in understanding using fuzzy logic for quite some time, fuzzy logic's impact in non-engineering disciplines is only now being recognized. The authors of Fuzzy Logic in Geology attend to this growing interest in the subject and introduce the use of fuzzy set theory in a style geoscientists can understand. This is followed by individual chapters on topics relevant to earth scientists: sediment modeling, fracture detection, reservoir characterization, clustering in geophysical data analysis, ground water movement, and time series analysis.

Review quote

'Fuzzy logic is a technology that definitely deserves a lot more attention in the geosciences. This book serves as an excellent starting point for any geophysicist interested in learning about soft computing techniques, and applying them to seismic processing and interpretation.'
The Leading Edge, June 2004
