Abstract

We describe in this chapter a new area in fuzzy logic, which studies type-2 fuzzy sets and type-2 fuzzy logic systems. Basically, a type-2 fuzzy set is a set in which we also have uncertainty about the membership function. Of course, type-2 fuzzy systems consist of fuzzy if-then rules, which contain type-2 fuzzy sets. We can say that type-2 fuzzy logic is a generalization of conventional fuzzy logic (type-1) in the sense that uncertainty is not only limited to the linguistic variables but also is present in the definition of the membership functions.
