Fuzzy Logic Foundations and Industrial Applications is an
organized edited collection of contributed chapters covering basic
fuzzy logic theory, fuzzy linear programming, and applications.
Special emphasis has been given to coverage of recent research
results, and to industrial applications of fuzzy logic.
The chapters are new works that have been written exclusively for this
book by many of the leading and prominent researchers (such as Ronald
Yager, Ellen Hisdal, Etienne Kerre, and others) in this field. The
contributions are original and each chapter is self-contained. The
authors have been careful to indicate direct links between fuzzy set
theory and its industrial applications.

Fuzzy Logic Foundations and Industrial Applications is an
invaluable work that provides researchers and industrial engineers
with up-to-date coverage of new results on fuzzy logic and relates
these results to their industrial use.
