Fuzzy Control Systems explores one of the most active areas of research involving fuzzy set theory. The contributors address basic issues concerning the analysis, design, and application of fuzzy control systems. Divided into three parts, the book first devotes itself to the general theory of fuzzy control systems. The second part deals with a variety of methodologies and algorithms used in the analysis and design of fuzzy controllers. The various paradigms include fuzzy reasoning models, fuzzy neural networks, fuzzy expert systems, and genetic algorithms. The final part considers current applications of fuzzy control systems. This book should be required reading for researchers, practitioners, and students interested in fuzzy control systems, artificial intelligence, and fuzzy sets and systems.
"Must reading for anyone interested in acquiring a thorough understanding of fuzzy logic, its role in soft computing, and its application to control and related fields."
