About this book


This book provides readers with a timely and comprehensive yet concise view on the field of fuzzy logic and its real-world applications. The chapters, written by authoritative scholars in the field, report on promising new models for data analysis, decision making, and systems modeling, with a special emphasis on their applications in management science. The book is a token of appreciation from the fuzzy research community to Professor Christer Carlsson for his long time research and organizational commitment, which have among other things resulted in the foundation and success of the Institute for 
Advanced Management Systems Research (IAMSR) at Åbo Akademi University, in Åbo (Turku), Finland.  The book serves as timely guide for the fuzzy logic and operations research communities alike.
