About this book


 This monograph presents the latest advances of fuzzy logic and soft computing in reservoir characterization and modeling. It proposes for the first time that future develoments require perception-based information processing. The book presents important steps in this direction by introducing fuzzy partial differential equations and relational equations. It provides a unique opportunity for soft computing researchers and oil industry practitioners to understand the significance of the changes in the fields by presenting recent accomplishments and new directions.
