capabilities of fuzzy systems theory."

Actually, I do little control work and was referring to 'response
surfaces' in the broader context of input-output modeling
(such as supervised or unsupervised learning, 'hand-built'fuzzy
functions, or as the basis of some other system requiring an
information representation capable of handling uncertainty, as
with fuzzy optimization). I realize this may not be interesting
to you, but the original poster had expressed some doubt about
the utility of fuzzy logic and within the context of such
modeling, fuzzy logic has clearly demonstrated its value.
