The Meeting with Fuzzy Mathematics as the Great Adventure of My Life

  • Elisabeth Rakus-Andersson
Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 299)


It has passed over twenty five years since I encountered fuzzy mathematics for the first time but I can still feel this excitement, which I have experienced during that meeting with an unknown mathematical domain. This was different from other classical mathematical fields but I immediately felt that the concept of imprecision would be expected to have a fine future. Since that day in 1987, when I held in my hand the first available paper on the medical applications [9] of fuzzy relations it was obvious for me that I could devote my time to investigate the topic much deeper.
