Overview

Soft computing is an emerging collection of methodologies that exploit tolerances for imprecision, uncertainty, and partial truth to achieve robustness, tractability, and low total cost. Hard computing solutions are usually more straightforward to analyze with more predictable behavior and stability. This in-depth book presents a fusion of soft computing and hard computing methodologies with real-world applications that practicing engineers face in today's highly competitive environment.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…the only book to examine the practical issue involved in the creation of high-performance, cost-effective applications using a synthesis of neural networks, fuzzy systems and evolutionary computation with traditional computing methods." (International Journal of General Systems, June 2005)

"...accessible for practical engineers and at the same time quite interesting for theoretical computer scientists...it will inspire more people to use the (currently under-utilized) fusion techniques." (Journal of Intelligent & Fuzzy Systems, Vol. 16, No. 3, 2005)

"…these well-written papers serve to offer insight into the powerful combination of soft and hard computing that is now being applied…to real-world applications." (Computing Reviews.com, June 10, 2005)

"This is the first book to treat the subject. With this work, the editor hopes to bridge the gap between the proponents of soft computing and hard computing." (E-STREAMS, May 2005)
