The term fuzzy logic is used in this paper to describe an imprecise logical system, FL, in which the truth-values are fuzzy subsets of the unit interval with linguistic labels such as true, false, not true, very true, quite true, not very true and not very false, etc. The truth-value set, ℐ, of FL is assumed to be generated by a context-free grammar, with a semantic rule providing a means of computing the meaning of each linguistic truth-value in ℐ as a fuzzy subset of [0, 1].Since ℐ is not…

Fuzzy Logic and Approximate Reasoning

The idea of approximate reasoning and fuzzy logic to find the approximate value of reaction rate with the given conditions by means of the extended modus ponens law is developed.

Fuzzy linguistic logic programming and its applications

- Computer Science, LinguisticsTheory and Practice of Logic Programming
- 2009

F fuzzy linguistic logic programming is introduced, which is a combination of fuzzy logic programming, introduced by P. Vojtáš, and hedge algebras in order to facilitate the representation and reasoning on human knowledge expressed in natural languages.

Approximate Reasoning to Unify Norm-based and Implication-based Fuzzy Control

- Computer Science
- 2003

In Gerla [2000] a fuzzy logic in narrow sense is proposed as a theoretical framework for triangular norm based fuzzy control. In this note we show that the resulting theory is also able to express…

Chapter 16 Fuzzy Logic in Computer Science

- Philosophy, Computer Science
- 2011

To understand fuzzy logic, it is essential to recall the basic motivation that led to its emergence, and classical logic is appropriate for a formalization of reasoning that involves bivalent propositions such as “5 is a prime number”, “age of Jan is 9”.

In this paper, fuzzy logic is viewed in a nonstandard perspective and the cornerstones of fuzzy logic-and its principal distinguishing features-are: graduation, granulation, precisiation and the concept of a generalized constraint.

Inverted Fuzzy Implications in Approximate Reasoning

- Computer ScienceCS&P
- 2014

This paper proposes a new method for choosing fuzzy implications, which allows to compare two fuzzy implications and chooses the fuzzy implication which has the greatest or the smallest truth value of the implication consequent or which has greater or smaller truth value than another implication.

Fuzzy Logic, Knowledge and Natural Language

- Computer Science
- 2012

The importance and usefulness of many-valued logic in science will be showed by two examples: i) the unforeseeability in biology (theory of Prigogine), ii) the birth of quantum mechanics and the employment of probabilistic logic in the interpretation of the wave-function.

An analysis of using triangular truth function in fuzzy reasoning based on a fuzzy truth value

- Computer Science
- 2013

An analysis of fuzzy reasoning based on a fuzzy truth value, presented by Baldwin, which would preserve one of the biggest advantage, which is the fuzzy relation, in form of the truth function, between a fact and a premise, throughout the whole inference process.

A Fuzzy-Set-Theoretic Interpretation of Linguistic Hedges

- Computer Science
- 1972

Abstract A basic idea suggested in this paper is that a linguistic hedge such as very, more or less, much, essentially. slightly, etc. may be viewed as an operator which acts on the fuzzy set…

Hedges: A Study In Meaning Criteria And The Logic Of Fuzzy Concepts

- Philosophy
- 1973

Students of language, especially psychologists and linguistic philosophers, have long been attuned to the fact that natural language concepts have vague boundaries and fuzzy edges and that, consequently, natural language sentences will very often be neither true, nor false, nor nonsensical.

From a Logical Point of View

- Philosophy
- 1953

It is the wish of the author to keep general terms distinct from abstract singular terms, so that the over-all dis pensability of some assumption that has always rankled as ad hoc and unintuitive is discovered.
