Applied Fuzzy Systems provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of fuzzy systems theory and its application. This book discusses the development of high-level artificial intelligence and information processing systems, as well as the realization of fuzzy computers. Organized into six chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamental problems addressed by fuzzy systems. This text then reviews standard computer logic or two-valued Boolean algebra. Other chapters consider bus scheduling, evaluation of structural reliability, applications of schema systems for decision-making, and processing of natural-language information and systems for medical diagnosis as examples of fuzzy expert systems. This book discusses as well a practical fuzzy expert system for durability evaluations of reinforced concrete slabs for bridges, along with an example of application. The final chapter deals with the important parts of the construction of fuzzy computers, their architecture, and the outlook for the future. This book is a valuable resource for engineers, mathematicians, technicians, and research workers.
