  • Probably approximately correct learning in fuzzy classification systems

    An efficient method for learning (trapezoidal) membership functions for fuzzy predicates is presented. Positive and negative examples of one class are given together with a system of classification rules. The learned membership functions can be used for the fuzzy predicates occurring in the given rules to classify further examples. We show that the obtained classification is approximately correct ...

    Difference equations arise in the modeling of many interesting problems. “Measurements” of data or specified information for an underlying problem may be imprecise or only partially specified. This motivates us to initiate a study of “fuzzy difference equations”. In this paper, we formulate and solve a given difference equation in the fuzzy setting and give a general method...

  • Fuzzy logic control of a solar power plant

    This paper presents an application of fuzzy logic control to the distributed collector field of a solar power plant. The major characteristic of a solar power plant is that the primary energy source, solar radiation, cannot be manipulated. Solar radiation varies throughout the day, causing changes in plant dynamics and strong perturbations in the process. A special subclass of fuzzy inference syst... View full abstract»

  • Stability and stabilizability of fuzzy-neural-linear control systems

    This paper discusses stability analysis of fuzzy-neural-linear (FNL) control systems which consist of combinations of fuzzy models, neural network (NN) models, and linear models. The authors consider a relation among the dynamics of NN models, those of fuzzy models and those of linear models. It is pointed out that the dynamics of linear models and NN models can be perfectly represented by Takagi-... View full abstract»

  • A design methodology for fuzzy system interfaces

    Conceptually, a fuzzy system interacting with a numerical environment has three components: a numeric/linguistic interface, a linguistic processing unit, and a linguistic/numeric interface. At these interfaces, membership functions representing linguistic terms play a top role both for the linguistic meaning provided and for the pre/post information processing introduced to the fuzzy system. Consi... View full abstract»

  • Applicability analysis of fuzzy inference by means of generalized Dempster-Shafer theory

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):448 - 453
    Cited by:  Papers (7)

    The generalization of Dempster-Shafer (D-S) theory to fuzzy sets provides means for evidential reasoning on basis of fuzzy information. Fuzzy implication operators are used to turn partial fuzzy knowledge about a physical system into an inference engine. Presently there are more than 72 fuzzy implication operators known and investigated, evoking demand for strategies of finding the best performing... View full abstract»

  • A neuro-fuzzy system for chemical agent detection

    The authors previously introduced a fuzzy version of Kohonen's well-known self-organizing map neural network model. In this novel neuro-fuzzy system, the neurons of Kohonen's original model are replaced by fuzzy rules. Each fuzzy rule is composed of fuzzy sets and an output singleton. Since the fuzzy self-organizing map is a modified version of Kohonen's original model, the self-organizing map and... View full abstract»

  • Building Sugeno-type models using fuzzy discretization and orthogonal parameter estimation techniques

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):454 - 458
    Cited by:  Papers (129)

    This paper develops a new approach to building Sugeno-type models. The essential idea is to separate the premise identification from the consequence identification, while these are mutually related in the previous methods. A fuzzy discretization technique is suggested to determine the premise of the model, and an orthogonal estimator is provided to identify the consequence of the model. The orthog...

  • Interval-valued fuzzy backward reasoning

    The importance and efficiency of backward reasoning in nonfuzzy reasoning has been stressed for a long time, especially in the case of expert systems and decision-support systems. The extension of this reasoning method to fuzzy theory, however, has never been considered. In this paper, the authors propose a definition of fuzzy backward reasoning based on the generalized modus ponens and show the n... View full abstract»

  • A fuzzy logic controller for an ABS braking system

    Anti-blocking system (ABS) brake controllers pose unique challenges to the designer: a) For optimal performance, the controller must operate at an unstable equilibrium point, b) Depending on road conditions, the maximum braking torque may vary over a wide range, c) The tire slippage measurement signal, crucial for controller performance, is both highly uncertain and noisy, d) On rough roads, the t...

  • A general axiomatic theory of intrinsically fuzzy mathematical morphologies

    Intrinsic fuzzification of mathematical morphology is grounded on an axiomatic characterization of subset fuzzification. The result is an axiomatic formulation of fuzzy Minkowski algebra. Part of the Minkowski algebra results solely from the axioms themselves and part results from a specific postulated form of a subsethood indicator function. There exists an infinite number of fuzzy morphologies s... View full abstract»
