This book consists of papers written by the founder of fuzzy set theory, Lotfi A. Zadeh. Since Zadeh is not only the founder of this field but has also been the principal contributor to its development over the last 30 years, the papers contain virtually all the major ideas in fuzzy set theory, fuzzy logic, and fuzzy systems in their historical context.
