Abstract

The approximations we will discuss in this chapter are between discrete fuzzy expert systems, neural nets and fuzzy controllers. We first present the details of the structure of a discrete fuzzy expert system and a fuzzy controller before introducing all the approximation results. We call these “first” approximation results because in a latter chapter they will be fuzzyified and then called second approximation results. The second approximation results are concerned with approximations between fuzzy expert systems, fuzzy neural nets, fuzzy functions and fuzzy input-output controllers.
