View: 373The second edition of the popular A First Course in Fuzzy Logic will continue to provide the ideal introduction to the theory and applications of fuzzy logic. The authors provide a firm mathematical basis for the calculus of fuzzy concepts-necessary to design intelligent systems-and give the student a solid background for further studies and real-world applications. This new edition provides many new exercises designed to enhance the reader's understanding of the concepts. The authors have expanded on the algebra background needed for the more advanced topics, and include significant new material on basic connectives and the algebraic properties of fuzzy logic, rough sets, conditional events, distributions of random sets, and derivatives of fuzzy measures. With its comprehensive updates, A First Course in Fuzzy Logic, Second Edition presents all the background necessary for students to begin using fuzzy logic in its many-and rapidly growing-applications.
