Algorithm for solving max-product fuzzy relational equations. (English) Zbl 1113.65042
Summary: Analytical methods are proposed for solving systems of fuzzy linear equations when the composition is the max-product. These methods provide an universal algorithm for computing the greatest solution and the set of all minimal solutions, when the system is consistent. In case of inconsistency, the equations that can not be satisfied are obtained.
