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.
