Dear colleagues,

We are happy to announce the publication of our book:

   New Approaches to Fuzzy Modeling and Control: Design and Analysis
   
   World Scientific, 2000

The book presents two new themes:

1. Fuzzy Lyapunov synthesis which is a computing with words version
   of classical Lyapunov synthesis. This allows the systematic design
   of fuzzy control rules given the control objective and linguistic
   description of the plant's behavior.

2. Hyperbolic optimal control which is a novel nonlinear optimal control
   problem whose solution is a fuzzy controller. This allows the design of
   controllers that guarantee stability and robustness (since they are
   optimal controllers) but can also be explained linguistically (since
   they are fuzzy controllers).
 
More information on these topics can also be found in:

[1] "Fuzzy Lyapunov based approach to the design of fuzzy controllers"
     Fuzzy Sets and Systems, 106, no. 1, pp. 49-59, 1999.
[2] "Hyperbolic optimal control and fuzzy control"
     IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (Part A)
     29, no. 1, pp. 1-10, 1999.

The book can be ordered from:
