Publisher’s description: In recent years, fuzzy logic applications have entered the mainstream of academic and industrial research and development, to the extent that commercial applications are now common. There has also been significant progress in efforts to combine fuzzy computation paradigms with approaches such as neural networks to create hybrid systems with enhanced capabilities. Many scientists and engineers now use the paradigms of fuzzy computation to tackle problems that are either intractable or unrealistically time consuming to solve through traditional computational strategies. The Handbook of Fuzzy Computation is a major reference work intended to serve both as a repository of information about fundamental aspects of the field and as a stepping stone into detailed explorations into the myriad applications of fuzzy-logic techniques and methods. Its conception as a work that will be updated assures that interested readers will always be able to keep up with the latest developments in the field. The Handbook of Fuzzy Computation has been designed to assist scientists and engineers interested in the solution of applied problems by application of fuzzy computation methods and techniques and, more generally, to anybody seeking to understand the central concepts and aspects of this important computational methodology.
