An Introduction to Many-Valued and Fuzzy Logic: Semantics, by Merrie Bergmann

By Merrie Bergmann

Professor Merrie Bergmann provides an available advent to the topic of many-valued and fuzzy common sense designed to be used on undergraduate and graduate classes in non-classical common sense. Bergmann discusses the philosophical matters that supply upward push to fuzzy good judgment - difficulties coming up from obscure language - and returns to these concerns as logical structures are awarded. For historic and pedagogical purposes, three-valued logical structures are awarded as invaluable intermediate structures for learning the rules and idea at the back of fuzzy good judgment. the main fuzzy logical structures - Lukasiewicz, Gödel, and product logics - are then offered as generalisations of three-valued structures that effectively deal with the issues of vagueness. a transparent presentation of technical suggestions, this booklet comprises routines during the textual content that pose user-friendly difficulties, that ask scholars to proceed proofs began within the textual content, and that have interaction scholars within the comparability of logical systems.
