      Overview

      Quotient Space Based Problem Solving provides an in-depth treatment of hierarchical problem solving, computational complexity, and the principles and applications of multi-granular computing, including inference, information fusing, planning, and heuristic search.

          • Explains the theory of hierarchical problem solving, its computational complexity, and discusses the principle and applications of multi-granular computing
          • Describes a human-like, theoretical framework using quotient space theory, that will be of interest to researchers in artificial intelligence.
          • Provides many applications and examples in the engineering and computer science area.
          • Includes complete coverage of planning, heuristic search and coverage of strictly mathematical models.

          From the Publisher
          "The entire book is devoted to formalize and automate...a theory of granular computing, which is essentially based on quotient spaces."—Zentralblatt MATH, Quotient Space Based Problem Solving

          "... aimed primarily at graduate students (and academicians) with strong mathematical maturity and an interest in mathematical modeling in the fields around artificial intelligence (AI)."—Computing Reviews,November 6,2014
