Fuzzy Logic with Engineering Applicaiton – Timothy J. Ross – 2nd Edition

Description

refers to a large subject dealing with a set of methods to characterize and quantify uncertainty in that arise from ambiguity, imprecision, fuzziness, and lack of knowledge. Fuzzy logic is a reasoning based on a foundation of fuzzy set theory, itself an extension of classical set theory, where set membership can be partial as opposed to all or none, as in the binary features of classical logic.
Fuzzy logic is a relatively new discipline in which major advances have been made over the last decade or so with regard to theory and applications. Following on from the successful first edition, this fully updated new edition is therefore very timely and much anticipated. Concentration on the topics of fuzzy logic with an abundance of worked examples, chapter and commercial case studies is designed to help motivate a mainstream engineering audience, and the book is further strengthened by the inclusion of an online manual as well as dedicated software codes.

Senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in most engineering disciplines, academics and practicing engineers, plus some working in economics, theory, operational research etc, will all find this a valuable addition to their bookshelves.
