Hi,

The standard membership function for the ubiquitous 'Tall' takes no
account of relative heights and the popululation size. Is there a
standard solution for this type of problem ?

E.G.

m 1
 ^
                            xb

                xa
        0

            height >

so a, and b give their own measures irrespective of their 'relative' heights

But, say xa is 1,000 people all with very similar ht then xb is
'exceptionally tall',
or whatever as measured relative to the population - get it ?

Any ideas of how to handle this 'relative' type domain (I'm no expert).
Of course I suppose it could be viewed as the combination of several more
fundamental
domains taking some sort of account of variance, st dev and the like.

Any (explicit) Ideas ?

Thanks
