Overview

Fuzzy Logic has gained increasing acceptance as a way to deal with complexity and uncertainty in many areas of science and engineering. This book is the first to address its practical applications to chemical systems. Ten distinguished authors discuss the role of fuzzy logic in the characterization of a variety of chemical concepts, including chirality, quantum systems, molecular engineering and design, and hierarchical classification methods. Fuzzy Logic in Chemistry will appeal to both students and professionals who are seeking to learn more about theory and applications in an area of growing importance to the physical sciences.

Key Features
* The first book on the applications of fuzzy logic in chemistry
* Covers a topic relevant to many disciplines, including molecular design
* Discusses applications of fuzzy logic to the physical sciences, a rapidly growing area
* Features chapters from highly distinguished authors in the physical sciences

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An exploration of the role of fuzzy logic in chemistry providing theoretical background as well as descriptions of practical applications in all the significant areas of chemical application. The nine contributing research chemists explain the foundations of fuzzy logic and its growing importance in the physical sciences, describe molecular size and shape, define chemical concepts such as chirality and the role of quantum-chemical species and systems, and outline the engineering of molecular species, including drug design. The volume features a foreword written by the founder of fuzzy logic, Lotfi A. Zadeh, University of California, Berkeley. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
"...the book provides a useful introduction to potential chemical applications,..."
—Gerald Maggiora, Pharmacia & Upjohn, CHEMISTRY & INDUSTRY.
"...the book is a good summary of current applications of fuzzy logic in chemistry. It provides a thought-provoking examination of the way chemists think about struture. In addition, the application oriented chapters illustrate the utility of fuzzy logic for understanding spectra and structures."
—Matthew Clark, Institute for Scientific Information, JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL INFORMATION AND COMPUTER SCIENCE
