Formal simplification of fuzzy rule based systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


As opposed to Chapters 4-8, which deal mainly with qualitative complexity in fuzzy systems, the current chapter is dedicated to the problem of quantitative complexity. However, the material presented here is a natural extension of the concepts introduced earlier in relation to qualitative complexity. In this context, the overall complexity management process in fuzzy systems has to be seen as a general framework whereby we first use formal presentation, manipulation and transformation techniques to address the qualitative complexity in fuzzy systems and then use formal simplification techniques to deal with the quantitative complexity.
