Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the preface to the Fourth Edition by H.-J. Zimmermann
'I hope that this new edition of my textbook will help to keep respective courses in universities and elsewhere up-to-date and challenging and motivating for students as well as professors. It may also be useful for practitioners that want to update their knowledge of fuzzy technology and look for new applications in their area.'
Booknews
New edition of a text explaining the theory's concepts and applications, and how they relate to their classical counterparts. Abundant examples show how the theory can be applied to the solution of realistic problems--and how it can lead to results not obtainable by classical methods. Although the field has rapidly evolved--fuzzy set theory, artificial neural net, and genetic algorithms have moved closed together and are now known as "computational intelligence," this text continues to provide access at a basic level.
