On Optimal Fuzzy Information Granulation

  • A. Ryjov
Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 95)


Information granulation is one of the basic concept of human cognition. L.A. Zadeh defined the subject of the theory of fuzzy information granulation by the following way “The theory of fuzzy information granulation (TFIG) is inspired by the ways in which humans granulate information and reason with it. However, the foundations of TFIG and its methodology are mathematical in nature” [7].
