    Subject: Two new text books
    Mime-Version: 1.0

    Announcing two new text books:

    #1
    A new text book in Advances in Soft Computing,
    Physica-Verlag/Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, Germany/New York.

    An Introduction to Fuzzy Logic and Fuzzy Sets

    J.J.Buckley and E.Eslami
    Springer, Physica-Verlag
    2002, 285 pp., 50 figs, 14 tabs.
    Softcover $ 39.95
    ISBN 3-7908-1447-4

    This book is to be the starting point for any curriculum in fuzzy systems
    in fields like computer science, mathematics, business/economics and
    engineering. It covers the basics leading to: fuzzy clustering, fuzzy
    pattern recognition, fuzzy database, fuzzy image processing, soft
    computing, fuzzy applications in
    operations research, fuzzy decision making, fuzzy rule based systems, fuzzy
    systems modeling, fuzzy mathematics. It is not a book for researchers - it
    is where you learn the "basics" needed for the above mentioned applications.

    Contents: logic,fuzzy sets, fuzzy numbers, fuzzy equations, fuzzy
    inequalities,
    fuzzy relations, fuzzy functions, fuzzy plane geometry, fuzzy trigonometry,
    systems of fuzzy linear equations, possibility theory, neural nets,
    approximate
    reasoning, genetic algorithms, fuzzy optimization, Index.

    #2
    A new text book in Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing, Vol. 91,
    Physica-Verlag/Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, Germany/New York.

    Fuzzy Mathematics in Economics and Engineering

    J.J.Buckley, E.Eslami and T.Feuring
    2002, 272 pp. , 69 figs, 27 tabs.
    Hardcover $ 78.00
    ISBN 3-7908-1456-3

    This book aims at surveying results in the application of fuzzy sets and
    fuzzy logic to economics and engineering. New results include fuzzy
    non-linear regression,fully fuzzified linear programming, fuzzy
    multi-period control, fuzzy network analysis, each using an evolutionary
    algorithm; fuzzy queuing decision analysis using possibility theory;
    fuzzy differential equations; fuzzy difference equations;
    fuzzy partial differential equations; fuzzy eigenvalues based on an
    evolutionary
    algorithm; fuzzy hierarchical analysis using an evolutionary algorithm;
    fuzzy integral equations. Other important topics covered are fuzzy
    input-output analysis;
    fuzzy mathematics of finance; fuzzy PERT (project evaluation and review
    technique).
    No previous knowledge of fuzzy sets is needed.
    The mathematical background is assumed to be elementary calculus.

    Contents: Introduction; Fuzzy Sets; Solving Fuzzy Equations; Fuzzy
    Mathematics of Finance; Fuzzy Non-Linear Regression; Operations Research;
    Fuzzy Differential Equations; Fuzzy Difference Equations; Fuzzy
    Partial Differential Equations; Fuzzy Eigenvalues; Fuzzy Integral
    Equations; Summary and Conclusions (including a research agenda);
    Evolutionary Algorithms; Index.
