  • Introduction to Fuzzy Set Theory
  • Analyzes the relationship between computers, human brains and fuzzy mathematics
  • Introduces fuzzy relations, fuzzy matrices and fuzzy control and discusses fuzzy probability statistics and fuzzy linear programming
  • Shows that Fuzzy Set Theory can be an answer to the following questions: What can be done when computers have limitations? And what should be done when traditional mathematics can't solve ambiguous problems in our real world?

This basic book has been used at the middle schools in Shanghai, China for more than 10 years.  The book presents carefully-selected contents in order to achieve the roles of enlightenment and popularization. It mainly includes: Chapter 1: Human Brains, Computers and Fuzzy Mathematics; Chapter 2: Matrix, Fuzzy Relations and Fuzzy Matrix; Chapter 3: Fuzzy Control; Chapter 4: Fuzzy Statistics and Fuzzy Probability and Chapter 5: Fuzzy Linear Programming. It includes at the end of each chapter concise, interesting and profound reading and thinking materials, and a certain amount of exercises so as to make it an informative and interesting textbook. This book can be used not only as a textbook in senior middle schools, and in vocational colleges, but also as a primer for individually learning fuzzy mathematics.

 

About the authors

Hao-ran Lin, male, graduated from the Department of Mathematics, Shanghai Normal University in 1968, has long been engaged teaching in middle school mathematics . Since 1997, by using teaching materials, he tried fuzzy mathematics enlightenment and popularization work first in ordinary middle schools and published twenty papers in the "Mathematical Bulletin", "People's Education", "Shanghai Education" and other core journals in mathematics education in China. He propagandized enlightenment to secondary school students by popularization of fuzzy mathematics necessary and possible.In 2003 he was named the top ten annual figures in Shanghai education. In 2005, he asked Professor of L.A. Zadeh , the founder of fuzzy mathematics, of  University of California, whether the English version of this textbook could be published, which has formed the book today.
