Survey of Theory and Applications of Łukasiewicz-Pavelka Fuzzy Logic

  • Esko Turunen
Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 11)


We demonstrate how approximate reasoning, many classification tasks, case-based reasoning, etc. can be viewed as applications of many valued similarity and, thus Lukasiewicz-Pavelka logic.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
