Why would you want to do this in practice? Mathematical functions
(including fuzzy systems) are a symbolic way of representing something
else. Why would you want to represent a representation with another
representation? This only seems to remove you farther from the
problem. One of the nice features of fuzzy logic is that it tends to
move the function closer to the semantics underlying the descritpion of
the problem than most mathematical functions allow.
But I digress: most of the posts in this thread seem to be missing the
underlying basis of fuzzy logic, which is how fuzzy set membership
differs from traditional set membership, and how a logic based on
partial memberships differs from one that only allows for two
memberships.
