Toward Modeling Fuzzy Dynamic System Based on Linguistic Values


Dynamic system is important for cognitive science in which cognitive map, fuzzy cognitive map are special cases. Both cognitive and fuzzy cognitive maps have complex state spaces, that is: chaos, limit cycles, fixed points and so on. In this paper, we study a class of fuzzy dynamic system, which called linguistic dynamic system. As a result, class of linguistic dynamic system is always convergent.
