Hello,

Just want to say that I was browsing the Fuzzy group even though my
work centers on neural network applications. Your article which
discusses the answer to stability proofs for fuzzy control was very
interesting and useful. The quote of the fighter aircraft designer was
what I've been trying to tell people for a long time. I used to work
on Satellite hardware control subsystems. Even though the "analysis"
group would generate the control laws we tested the hell out of them,
found holes and made patches. If the holes were big enough, then a
complete rework was done.

This problem of "how to prove neural control stability" keeps coming up
but I really think it's from people who have not worked with "real"
systems.

I'm keeping the whole article. Thanks for the good information!
