Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1226)


In this paper, we focus our attention on the explicit Representation of Linguistic Negation of Nuanced Properties. Our Approach is based upon a Similarity Relation between Nuanced Properties through their corresponding Fuzzy Sets. We propose a Choice Strategy improving the abilities in Declarative Modeling in Image Synthesis. The Designer can refer to Linguistic Negations both in Scene Descriptions and in Validation Rules of potential Solutions, since the Interactive Choice Strategy allows him to explain their implicit meanings.
