Section 1 (S1) describes specifically the problems to be discussed in succeeding chapters. In S2 a short analysis of the modeling process suggests that information and uncertainty will be key concepts in the development of new mathematical structures for pattern recognition. Fuzzy sets are introduced in the third section as a natural and tractable way to model physical situations which seem to require something more than is offered by deterministic or stochastic representations.
