Editors: Raymond E. Vargas
Book Description:
Fuzzy logic is a form of multi-valued logic derived from fuzzy set theory to deal with reasoning that is approximate rather than precise. Just as in fuzzy set theory the set membership values can range (inclusively) between 0 and 1, in fuzzy logic the degree of truth of a statement can range between 0 and 1 and is not constrained to the two truth values {true, false} as in classic predicate logic. And when linguistic variables are used, these degrees may be managed by specific functions, as discussed below.

Some Current areas of application include:
Automobile and other vehicle subsystems, such as automatic transmissions, ABS and cruise control (e.g. Tokyo monorail)
Air conditioners
The Massive engine used in the Lord of the Rings films, which helped huge scale armies create random, yet orderly movements
Digital image processing, such as edge detection
Rice cookers
Washing machines and other home appliances
Video game artificial intelligence
Language filters on message boards and chat rooms for filtering out offensive text
Pattern recognition in Remote Sensing

This book brings together the latest research in the field.
