Item description for An Introduction to Fuzzy Logic and Fuzzy Sets (Advances in Soft Computing) by James J. Buckley...

This book is to be the starting point for any curriculum in fuzzy systems in fields like computer science, mathematics, business/economics and engineering. It covers the basics leading to: fuzzy clustering, fuzzy pattern recognition, fuzzy database, fuzzy image processing, soft computing, fuzzy applications in operations research, fuzzy decision making, fuzzy rule based systems, fuzzy systems modeling, fuzzy mathematics. It is not a book designed for researchers - it is where you really learn the "basics" needed for any of the above-mentioned applications.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about An Introduction to Fuzzy Logic and Fuzzy Sets (Advances in Soft Computing)?

Concise  Aug 6, 2006
Buckley and Eslami's notation and some of their ideas on fuzzy sets might go deeper than many others. I've found this book intriguing to say the least. You'll find this a very concise "no-nonsense" sort of math book. Ideas get explained in a few sentences or in a few paragraphs, and then come the exercises! And you'll find even more new ideas, not mentioned in the reading, in the exercises. I do like this sort of style of learning mathematics, because it actively gets you involved.
This book and others on fuzzy set theories do require a decent understaning of crisp set theory. So, if one hasn't taken a course or read a book on crisp set theory you might want to check out a copy of Seymour Lipschutz's Schaum's Outline "Theory and Problems of Set Theory." Knowing some basic calculus will also help. Some advantages of this book lie in that it helps one to separate the idea of fuzzy intersections and fuzzy unions from the standard and useful idea of t-norms and t-conorms. Sections on fuzzy geometry, fuzzy trignometry also seem interesting as these ideas have not yet gotten much development.
I think I've detected a potential error in the text in that it gives an integral for an equation that had to have had part of the integral as negative. But, this seems relatively minor. The book could easily get improved if the author(s) provided solved examples of their exercises, or at least answers. Something like a Schaum's Outline of Fuzzy Set Theory would be an excellent idea!
I appreciate simple things in this text like the authors not saying "prove this truth table..." and instead saying "prove or disprove...", and not saying "prove" in general, but rather saying "show".
