    Random variability and imprecision are two distinct facets of the uncertainty affecting parameters that influence the assessment of risk. While random variability can be represented by probability distribution functions, imprecision (or partial ignorance) is better accounted for by possibility distributions (or families of probability distributions). Because practical situations of risk computatio... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with the design of reliable Hinfin fuzzy controllers for continuous-time nonlinear systems with actuator failures. The Takagi and Sugeno fuzzy model is employed to represent a nonlinear system. The objective is to find a stabilizing state-feedback fuzzy controller such that the nominal Hinfin performance is optimized while satisfying a prescribed H... View full abstract»

  • Performance Enhancement for T–S Fuzzy Control Using Neural Networks

    A new control scheme is proposed to improve the system performance for Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy system using control grade functions tuned by neural networks. First, systematic modeling method is introduced to construct the exact T-S fuzzy model for a nonlinear control system. For the T-S fuzzy model, the system uncertainty affects only the membership functions. To cope with this problem, the gra... View full abstract»

    Fuzzy observer-based control design is proposed to deal with the output tracking problem for nonlinear systems. For the purpose of tracking design, the new concept of virtual desired variables and, in turn the so-called generalized kinematics are introduced to simplify the design procedure. In light of this concept, the design procedure is split into two steps: i) Determine the virtual desired var... View full abstract»

    We propose a new approach for the stability analysis of discrete Sugeno types II and III fuzzy systems. The approach does not require the existence of a common Lyapunov function. We introduce the concept of fuzzy positive definite and fuzzy negative definite functions. This new concept is used to replace classical positive and negative definite functions in arguments similar to those of traditiona... View full abstract»

  • Deriving Analytical Input–Output Relationship for Fuzzy Controllers Using Arbitrary Input Fuzzy Sets and Zadeh Fuzzy AND Operator

    A fuzzy controller uses either Zadeh or product fuzzy AND operator, with the former being more frequently used than the latter. We have recently published a novel technique for deriving analytical input-output relation for the fuzzy controllers that use Zadeh AND operator and arbitrary trapezoidal input fuzzy sets, including triangular ones as special cases. In this paper, we have developed a gene... View full abstract»

    Fuzzy weighted average (FWA), which can be applied to various fields such as engineering design, decision analysis, etc., and as function of fuzzy numbers, is suitable for the problem of multiple occurrences of fuzzy parameters. Additional fuzziness may be introduced in the alpha-cut arithmetic. This paper reviews and compares discrete algorithms for the FWAs in both theoretical comparison and num... View full abstract»

  • A Survey on Analysis and Design of Model-Based Fuzzy Control Systems

    Fuzzy logic control was originally introduced and developed as a model free control design approach. However, it unfortunately suffers from criticism of lacking of systematic stability analysis and controller design though it has a great success in industry applications. In the past ten years or so, prevailing research efforts on fuzzy logic control have been devoted to model-based fuzzy control s... View full abstract»

  • Discrete Copulas

    We define discrete copulas on a grid of the unit square and show that with each discrete copula there is associated, in a natural way, a bistochastic matrix. This is used in order to introduce the product of discrete copulas. Discrete copulas of order n are the smallest convex set containing the irreducible discrete copulas of order n introduced by Mayor View full abstract»
