Fuzzy logic applications have entered the mainstream of academic and industrial research and development, to the extent that commercial applications are now common. There has also been significant progress in efforts to combine fuzzy computation paradigms with approaches such as neural networks to create hybrid systems with enhanced capabilities. This reference focuses on fuzzy computation in practice, containing over thirty case studies of tested applications.
