An Introduction to Fuzzy Sets
Analysis and Design
Witold Pedrycz and Fernando Gomide

The concept of fuzzy sets is one of the most fundamental and influential
tools in computational intelligence. Fuzzy sets can provide solutions to
a broad range of problems of control, pattern classification, reasoning,
planning, and computer vision. This book bridges the gap that has
developed between theory and practice. The authors explain what fuzzy
sets are, why they work, when they should be used (and when they
shouldn’t), and how to design systems using them.

The authors take a top-down approach to the design of detailed
algorithms. They begin with illustrative examples, explain the
fundamental theory and design methodologies, and then present more
advanced case studies dealing with practical tasks. While they use
mathematics to introduce concepts, they ground them in examples of
real-world problems that can be solved through fuzzy set technology. The
only mathematics prerequisites are a basic knowledge of introductory
calculus and linear algebra.

Witold Pedrycz is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at
the University of Manitoba, Canada. Fernando Gomide is Professor of
Electrical and Computer Engineering at the State University of Campinas,
Brazil.
