Features

• Introduces the theory and applications of fuzzy logic in an extensively classroom-tested presentation ideal for course work or self-study
• Builds the foundation for applying fuzzy logic in intelligent systems design, particularly in control engineering
• Covers new topics, such as type-2 fuzzy sets
• Includes extensive exercise set at the end of each chapter
• Summary

A First Course in Fuzzy Logic, Third Edition continues to provide the ideal introduction to the theory and applications of fuzzy logic. This best-selling text provides a firm mathematical basis for the calculus of fuzzy concepts necessary for designing intelligent systems and a solid background for readers to pursue further studies and real-world applications.

New in the Third Edition:

• A section on type-2 fuzzy sets - a topic that has received much attention in the past few years
• Additional material on copulas and t-norms
• More discussions on generalized modus ponens and the compositional rule of inference
• Complete revision to the chapter on possibility theory
• Significant expansion of the chapter on fuzzy integrals
• Many new exercises

With its comprehensive updates, this new edition presents all the background necessary for students and professionals to begin using fuzzy logic in its many-and rapidly growing- applications in computer science, mathematics, statistics, and engineering.
