This book contains a selection of papers that were initially presented at the 4th On-Line World Conference on Soft Computing in Industrial Applications that was held in September 1999. Soft Computing provides various methodologies for developing intelligent systems that offer competitive solutions to real world problems. This book is comprised of a unique collection of papers that provide a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art-theory and sucessful industrial applications of soft computing around the world. It is written by some of the leading researchers in this field. This book is aimed at researchers and professional engineers who are engaged in developing intelligent systems as well as graduate students in science and engineering.
