MULTISTAGE FUZZY CONTROL

A Model-Based Approach to Fuzzy Control and Decision Making

Janusz Kacprzyk, Systems Research Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences,
Warsaw, Poland

John Wiley & Sons
Chichester, New York, ...
1997

Fuzzy techniques are used to cope with imprecision in the control process.
This authoritative book explains the essential principles of fuzzy logic and
describes both the theoretical and practical advantages of the new
model-based, prescriptive approach. Professor Kacprzyk offers a
comprehensive and in depth examination of the issues underlying multistage
control and decision analysis, addressing in particular fuzzy dynamic
systems, fuzzy events, fuzzy probabilities and fuzzy quantifiers. The text
also comprises an introduction to the basic concepts of fuzzy sets, fuzzy
logic and fuzzy systems, complemented by real-world examples of the use of
the model-based prescriptive approach to improve the efficiency of fuzzy
control systems.

Highly experienced in fuzzy control research, the author identifies new
trends in the development of fuzzy sets and their direct application to
decision-making processes. Fuzzy control engineers, researchers and
postgraduate students will find this an ideal reference, offering a wealth
of ideas for enhancing the performance of fuzzy control systems and
equipping them with the tools to resolve genuine problems. Multistage Fuzzy
Control is an essential handbook for those wishing to resolve real-world
problems in control and decision analysis through the use of
fuzzy-logic-based methods.
