Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 19)


Pawlak [Pal] has proposed the concept of approximate data analysis based on rough sets in 1982. Rough set theory has been developed to deal with many real-life problems. Basic concepts of rough set theory can be found in [Pa3] and [PG].
