I'll let my friend Bill Siler answer most of this, but I fail to see how JL's
logic is a superset of fuzzy logic. Fuzzy logic is, of course, an infinitely
valued logic. It has more general and broader operations than Lukasiewicz's
logic. And, of course, thousands of products and decisions models have been
built using fuzzy logic (not that this means anything from an "strength of
axioms" viewpoint, but it should give us a reason to explore the mechanics of
fuzzy logic in some detail.).

Fuzzy logic has been used extensively in adaptive neural networks in a broad
spectrum of applications including general pattern recognition, fault
detection, comercial loan analysis, portfolio balancing and safety, and so
forth. I've used an adaptive Kohonen network coupled with fuzzy logic in
medicare fraud detection. I wrote an article five years ago in AI Expert
magazine on Fuzzy Neural Networks showing how fuzzy logic could be used as
operators and how fuzzy thresholds improve the classification capabilities of
neural networks.

Anyway, the bottom line is this: I'm not sure what distinction you are making
between "your" multivalued logic and the fuzzy logic used by the rest of the
working universe.
