Fuzzy Sets, Decision Making, and Expert Systems

In the two decades since its inception by L. Zadeh, the theory of fuzzy sets has matured into a wide-ranging collection of concepts, models, and tech­ niques for dealing with complex phenomena which do not lend themselves to analysis by classical methods based on probability theory and bivalent logi...
