Type-2 fuzzy sets are used for modeling uncertainty and imprecision in a better way. These type-2 fuzzy sets were originally presented by Zadeh in 1975 and are essentially "fuzzy fuzzy" sets where the fuzzy degree of membership is a type-1 fuzzy set. The new concepts were introduced by Mendel and Liang allowing the characterization of a type-2 fuzzy set(More)
In the disease cystic fibrosis (CF), the most common mutation delF508 results in endoplasmic reticulum retention of misfolded CF gene proteins (CFTR). We show that the alpha-1,2-glucosidase inhibitor miglustat (N-butyldeoxynojirimycin, NB-DNJ) prevents delF508-CFTR/calnexin interaction and restores cAMP-activated chloride current in epithelial CF cells.(More)
In this paper, we describe a new method for the estimation of the fractal dimension of a geometrical object using fuzzy logic techniques. The fractal dimension is a mathematical concept, which measures the geometrical complexity of an object. The algorithms for estimating the fractal dimension calculate a numerical value using as data a time series for the(More)
