Fuzzy logic, the brainchild of Prof. Lotfi Zadeh [1–5], dates back to 1965; it was seen as a technique to counteract the quantitative-type ones that had been successfully utilized till then for analyzing systems where behavior could be described by laws of mechanics, electromagnetism, and thermodynamics. The principle inspiring the theory is known as the principle of incompatibility and states that, as a system becomes increasingly complex, the possibility of obtaining a precise description of it in quantitative terms decreases.
