Fuzzy Data Processing Beyond Min t-Norm
Usual algorithms for fuzzy data processing—based on the usual form of Zadeh’s extension principle—implicitly assume that we use the \(\min \) “and”-operation (t-norm). It is known, however, that in many practical situations, other t-norms more adequately describe human reasoning. It is therefore desirable to extend the usual algorithms to situations when we use t-norms different from \(\min \). Such an extension is provided in this chapter.
