To gain factual information about the growth of fuzzy logic
and related literatures, I asked Ann Jensen, Head Librarian of the
Astronomy, Mathematics and Statistics Library to search INSPEC and
Mathematical Reviews databases for papers which (a) contain "fuzzy" in
title; and (b) contain "soft computing" in title. Following is a
summary of the information compiled by Ann Jensen. (Data for 1997 and
1998 are not included because they are not complete.)

Note: the jump in the number of papers in INSPEC database which
contain "soft computing" in title. Note also that the displayed
numbers of papers on fuzzy logic are lower bounds because only those
papers in which "fuzzy" appears in title are cited.
