Fuzzy logic methodology has been proven effective in dealing with complex nonlinear systems containing uncertainties that are otherwise difficult to model. Technology based on this methodology has been applied to many real-world problems, especially in the area of consumer products. This book presents the first unified and thorough treatment of fuzzy modeling and fuzzy control, providing necessary tools for the control of complex nonlinear systems. Careful consideration is given to questions concerning model complexity, model precision, and computing time.In addition to being an excellent reference for electrical, computer, chemical, industrial, civil, manufacturing, mechanical and aeronautical engineers, the book may also be appropriate for classroom use in a graduate course in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. Applied mathematicians, control engineers, computer scientists, and physicists will benefit from the presentation as well.
