Applications of fuzzy theory (often referred to as "fuzzy logic") are maturing and multiplying at a phenomenal rate, and a comprehensive treatment of these real-world techniques and applications is now very timely. Unlike traditional computer logic involving clear true or false decisions, a fuzzy logic system chooses what is most true after "considering" several contributing and possibly conflicting variables. Examples of practical devices using fuzzy computer decision-making are thermostats that respond to a combination of temperature and humidity (comfort factors), an elevator that considers how crowded a car is rather than just its proximity to the desired floor, and a camera that integrates the variables affecting picture quality. These volumes will present a logical progression from implementation and modeling techniques to industrial/commercial applications to fuzzy neural and adaptive fuzzy systems.
