Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8132)


In previous works, we have developed some computational models of quasi-periodic phenomena based on Fuzzy Finite State Machines. Here, we extend this work to allow designers to obtain detailed linguistic descriptions of relevant amplitude and temporal changes. We include several examples that will help to understand and use this new resource for linguistic description of complex phenomena.
