****************************************************************
This is the first book devoted exclusively to applications of fuzzy methods
in information engineering. Fuzzy Information Engineering shows how many
fuzzy set techniques can be successfully applied to information engineering
problems such as
i) the clarification and the interpretation of information
ii) the retrieval of information by querying and reasoning
iii) the utilization of information in decision making, designing and
optimization tasks.
In each of these classes of problems, fuzzy set methods are shown to play
an important role.
This book contains articles written by international recognized experts in
their fields. It takes you on a guided tour through the most important fuzzy set
theory applications of the past several years. Each chapter covers a different
application and addresses theory, methodology, and implementation. Here is
your opportunity to explore and learn from cutting-edge applications in:
*Fault diagnosis
*Internet information retrieval
*Chemical process engineering
*Data fusion
*Learning from data
*Freehand drawing
*Scheduling in production management
*Satellite image classification
*Query processing in databases
*Virtual reality, and more
