Summary and Info
Applications of fuzzy theory are maturing and multiplying at a phenomenal rate because of the essential role that "fuzzy logic" plays in the effective design of many industrial and decision-support systems. Unlike traditional computer logic involving clearly true and false decisions, a fuzzy logic system makes the best choice after weighing a range of contributing variables. In this way, the implementation of fuzzy logic algorithms in hardware/software systems achieves the best results in a wide variety of practical, real-world applications. This comprehensive set of volumes presents authoritative chapters ranging from fundamental implementation and modeling techniques to major industrial, manufacturing, and commercial applications. Coverage includes image, visual, and pattern processing, control methods and applications, combined fuzzy neural and adaptive fuzzy systems, and other important applications areas such as risk assessment. The information and examples provided will help the reader to master the essential trade-offs that guide systems design according to application requirements and cost-performance issues.
