Application of Approximate Reasoning Using Triangular and Sine-curved Membership Functions

  • Hsunhsun Chung
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 417)


Some membership functions are discussed in this study and approximate reasoning in this paper is conducted with these membership functions. The author also explains how to apply approximate reasoning to educational evaluation. For the purpose, the author evaluates a student’s work (drawing) by approximate reasoning and discusses the practical effectiveness of the analysis method.
