# A new approach to fuzzy reasoning

@article{Weisbrod1998ANA, title={A new approach to fuzzy reasoning}, author={Joachim Weisbrod}, journal={Soft Computing}, year={1998}, volume={2}, pages={89-99} }

Abstract Over the last years fuzzy control has become a very popular and successful control paradigm. The basic idea of fuzzy control is to incorporate human expert knowledge. This expert knowledge is specified in a rule based manner on a high and granular level of abstraction. By using vague predicates a fuzzy rule base neglects useless details and concentrates on important relations. Following L.A. Zadeh’s famous principle of incompatibility, this technique is most promising when applied to…

### A new perspective on reasoning with fuzzy rules

- Computer ScienceInt. J. Intell. Syst.
- 2002

The notion of an “if …, then …” rule is examined in the context of positive and negative information and a new compositional rule of inference adapted to conjunctive rules, specific to positive information, is proposed.

### Fuzzy Sets and Possibility Theory in Approximate and Plausible Reasoning

- Computer Science
- 1999

This long chapter is an attempt at providing a coherent view of the abundant body of results published in the field of approximate reasoning, including similarity-based and case-based reasoning, default reasoning, abductive reasoning, and reasoning with fuzzy quantifiers.

### Model adaptation in possibilistic instance-based reasoning

- Computer ScienceIEEE Trans. Fuzzy Syst.
- 2002

A method for adapting a linguistic model automatically to observed data is proposed, which frees the expert from specifying mathematical concepts such as similarity measures and membership functions of fuzzy sets precisely.

### Accepted Beliefs, Revision and Bipolarity in the Possibilistic Framework

- Philosophy
- 2009

Possibility theory, based on a non-additive setting that contrasts with probability theory, provides a potentially more qualitative treatment of partial belief, since the operations “max” and “min” play a role somewhat analogous to the sum and the product in probability calculus.

### Instance-Based Prediction in the Framework of Possibility Theory

- Computer Science
- 2001

A possibilistic framework for instance-based prediction is presented which formalizes the generalization beyond experience by means of fuzzy rules. In comparison with related instance-based…

The notion of {completeness and of {consistency} is introduced and a mechanism that is able to evaluate both degrees in the corresponding context is proposed that helps the designer to adjust the rule base in an appropriate way.

- Computer Science
- 1995

This paper introduces a complete and sound framework to explain the most common FC mechanism, Mamdani's original approach, and presents the idea of {distributions, which is a concept somewhat dual to possibility theory, and proves that regarding fuzzy sets as {Distributions means to postulate FC in the sense of M amdani.

This paper examines two complementary choices of deductive approximate reasoning, namely the Mamdani relation and the G odel relation, and presents empirical results with single rules, with groups of rules and rule chaining.

By relying on the use of linguistic variables and fuzzy algorithms, the approach provides an approximate and yet effective means of describing the behavior of systems which are too complex or too ill-defined to admit of precise mathematical analysis.
