# Type-1 Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic

## Abstract

This chapter formally introduces type-1 fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic. It is the backbone for Chap. 3 and provides the foundation upon which type-2 fuzzy sets and systems are built in later chapters. Its coverage includes: crisp sets, type-1 fuzzy sets and associated concepts [including a short biography of Prof. Zadeh (the father of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic)], type-1 fuzzy set defined, linguistic variables, returning to linguistic variables from a numerical value of a membership function, set theoretic operations for crisp and type-1 fuzzy sets, crisp and fuzzy relations and compositionson the same or different product spaces , compositions of a type-1 fuzzy set with a type-1 fuzzy relation, hedges, the Extension Principle (which is about functions of fuzzy sets), *α*-cuts (which are a powerful way to represent a type-1 fuzzy set in terms of intervals), functions of type-1 fuzzy sets computed by using *α*-cuts, multivariable membership functions and Cartesian products, crisp logic, going from crisp logic to fuzzy logic, Mamdani (engineering) implications, some final remarks, and an appendix about properties/laws of type-1 fuzzy sets. 35 examples are used to illustrate this chapter’s important concepts.
