Part of the Symbolic Computation book series (SYMBOLIC)


Special non-symmetrical products of fuzzy relations (binary or higher n-ary) to allow formation of structures of increasing complexity, and parallel processing of them. Applications include implementation of extended semantic nets <227> and a curtailment of rule-based inference.
