Summary
  • The series "Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing" contains publications on various areas within the so-called soft computing which include fuzzy sets, rough sets, neural networks, evolutionary computations, probabilistic and evidential reasoning, multi-valued logic, and related fields. The publications within "Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing" are primarily monographs and edited volumes. They cover significant recent developments in the field, both of a foundational and applicable character. An important feature of the series is its short publication time and world-wide distribution. This permits a rapid and broad dissemination of research results. --
  • Linguistic fuzzy logic theory deals with sets or categories whose boundaries are blurry or, in other words, "fuzzy," and which are expressed in a formalism that uses "words" to compute, not numbers, termed in engineering as "soft computing."This book presents an accessible introduction to this linguistic fuzzy logic methodology, focusing on its applicablility to social science. Specifically, this is the first book to propose an approach based on linguistic fuzzy-logic and the method of computing with words to the analysis of decision making processes, strategic interactions, causality, and data analysis in social sciences. The project consists of systematic, theoretical and practical discussions and developments of these new methods as well as their applications to various substantive issues of interest to international relations scholars, political scientists, and social scientists in general. --
  • "Social scientists who wish to extend their thinking about the possibilities offered by fuzzy sets will find a wealth of new material in this work." Charles Raigin --
  • "Scientific progress is driven by a quest for better models of reality... the world of human sciences is the world of perceptions. Perceptions are intrinsically imprecise... fuzzy logic is needed for dealing with imprecision... Professor Arfi's approach opens the door to construction of better models of reality in the realm of human sciences. His work...contains much that is new and original...paves the way for important applications of fuzzy logicin the realm of human sciences." Lotfi A. Zadeh --Book Jacket
