An Introduction to Many-Valued and Fuzzy Logic: Semantics, by Merrie Bergmann

By Merrie Bergmann

Professor Merrie Bergmann offers an available advent to the topic of many-valued and fuzzy good judgment designed to be used on undergraduate and graduate classes in non-classical good judgment. Bergmann discusses the philosophical matters that provide upward push to fuzzy good judgment - difficulties coming up from obscure language - and returns to these matters as logical platforms are offered. For historic and pedagogical purposes, three-valued logical structures are awarded as invaluable intermediate platforms for learning the foundations and concept at the back of fuzzy common sense. the main fuzzy logical structures - Lukasiewicz, Gödel, and product logics - are then offered as generalisations of three-valued structures that effectively tackle the issues of vagueness. a transparent presentation of technical techniques, this booklet comprises routines in the course of the textual content that pose user-friendly difficulties, that ask scholars to proceed proofs all started within the textual content, and that interact scholars within the comparability of logical systems.
