**Fuzzy logic**is a form of many-valued logic in which the truth values of variables may be any real number between 0 and 1 inclusive. It is employed to handle the concept of partial truth, where the truth value may range between completely true and completely false.BOOK, NovÃ¡k, V., Perfilieva, I., MoÄkoÅ™, J., Mathematical principles of fuzzy logic, 1999, Kluwer Academic, Dordrecht, 978-0-7923-8595-0, harv, By contrast, in Boolean logic, the truth values of variables may only be the integer values 0 or 1.The term

*fuzzy logic*was introduced with the 1965 proposal of fuzzy set theory by Lotfi Zadeh.WEB,weblink Fuzzy Logic, 2008-09-30, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Bryant University, 2006-07-23, JOURNAL, Zadeh, L.A., 1965, Fuzzy sets, Information and Control, 8, 3, 338â€“353, 10.1016/s0019-9958(65)90241-x, Fuzzy logic had however been studied since the 1920s, as infinite-valued logicâ€”notably by Åukasiewicz and Tarski.JOURNAL, Pelletier, Francis Jeffry, 2000, Review of

*Metamathematics of fuzzy logics*,weblink The Bulletin of Symbolic Logic, 6, 3, 342â€“346, 421060, 10.2307/421060, no,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20160303172812weblink">weblink 2016-03-03, It is based on the observation that people make decisions based on imprecise and non-numerical information, fuzzy models or sets are mathematical means of representing vagueness and imprecise information, hence the term fuzzy. These models have the capability of recognising, representing, manipulating, interpreting, and utilising data and information that are vague and lack certainty.What is Fuzzy Logic? "Mechanical Engineering Discussion Forum"Fuzzy logic has been applied to many fields, from control theory to artificial intelligence.

## Overview

Classical logic only permits conclusions which are either true or false. However, there are also propositions with variable answers, such as one might find when asking a group of people to identify a color. In such instances, the truth appears as the result of reasoning from inexact or partial knowledge in which the sampled answers are mapped on a spectrum.{{Citation needed|date=May 2018}}Both degrees of truth and probabilities range between 0 and 1 and hence may seem similar at first, but fuzzy logic uses degrees of truth as a mathematical model of*vagueness*, while probability is a mathematical model of

*ignorance*.BOOK,weblink Handbook of Research for Fluid and Solid Mechanics: Theory, Simulation, and Experiment, Asli, Kaveh Hariri, Aliyev, Soltan Ali Ogli, Thomas, Sabu, Gopakumar, Deepu A., 2017-11-23, CRC Press, 9781315341507, en,

### Applying truth values

A basic application might characterize various sub-ranges of a continuous variable. For instance, a temperature measurement for anti-lock brakes might have several separate membership functions defining particular temperature ranges needed to control the brakes properly. Each function maps the same temperature value to a truth value in the 0 to 1 range. These truth values can then be used to determine how the brakes should be controlled.BOOK,weblink Optical Character Recognition Systems for Different Languages with Soft Computing, Chaudhuri, Arindam, Mandaviya, Krupa, Badelia, Pratixa, Ghosh, Soumya K., 2016-12-23, Springer, 9783319502526, en,### Linguistic variables

While variables in mathematics usually take numerical values, in fuzzy logic applications, non-numeric values are often used to facilitate the expression of rules and facts.BOOK, Zadeh, L. A., etal, Fuzzy Sets, Fuzzy Logic, Fuzzy Systems, 1996, World Scientific Press, 978-981-02-2421-9, harv, A linguistic variable such as*age*may accept values such as

*young*and its antonym

*old*. Because natural languages do not always contain enough value terms to express a fuzzy value scale, it is common practice to modify linguistic values with adjectives or adverbs. For example, we can use the hedges

*rather*and

*somewhat*to construct the additional values

*rather old*or

*somewhat young*.Fuzzification operations can map mathematical input values into fuzzy membership functions. And the opposite de-fuzzifying operations can be used to map a fuzzy output membership function into a "crisp" output value that can be then used for decision or control purposes.

## Process

- Fuzzify all input values into fuzzy membership functions.
- Execute all applicable rules in the rulebase to compute the fuzzy output functions.
- De-fuzzify the fuzzy output functions to get "crisp" output values.

### Fuzzification

Fuzzification is the process of assigning the numerical input of a system to fuzzy sets with some degree of membership. This degree of membership may be anywhere within the interval [0,1]. If it is 0 then the value does not belong to the given fuzzy set, and if it is 1 then the value completely belongs within the fuzzy set. Any value between 0 and 1 represents the degree of uncertainty that the value belongs in the set. These fuzzy sets are typically described by words, and so by assigning the system input to fuzzy sets, we can reason with it in a linguistically natural manner.For example, in the image below the meanings of the expressions*cold*,

*warm*, and

*hot*are represented by functions mapping a temperature scale. A point on that scale has three "truth values"â€”one for each of the three functions. The vertical line in the image represents a particular temperature that the three arrows (truth values) gauge. Since the red arrow points to zero, this temperature may be interpreted as "not hot"; i.e. this temperature has zero membership in the fuzzy set "hot". The orange arrow (pointing at 0.2) may describe it as "slightly warm" and the blue arrow (pointing at 0.8) "fairly cold". Therefore, this temperature has 0.2 membership in the fuzzy set "warm" and 0.8 membership in the fuzzy set "cold". The degree of membership assigned for each fuzzy set is the result of fuzzification.thumb|center|300px|Fuzzy logic temperatureFuzzy sets are often defined as triangle or trapezoid-shaped curves, as each value will have a slope where the value is increasing, a peak where the value is equal to 1 (which can have a length of 0 or greater) and a slope where the value is decreasing.{{Citation needed|date=September 2017}} They can also be defined using a sigmoid function.WEB, Wierman, Mark J., An Introduction to the Mathematics of Uncertainty: including Set Theory, Logic, Probability, Fuzzy Sets, Rough Sets, and Evidence Theory,weblink Creighton University, 16 July 2016, no,weblink 30 July 2012, One common case is the standard logistic function defined as

S(x) = frac{1}{1 + e^{-x}}

which has the following symmetry property
S(x) + S(-x) = 1

From this it follows that
(S(x) + S(-x)) cdot (S(y) + S(-y)) cdot (S(z) + S(-z)) = 1

### Fuzzy logic operators

Fuzzy logic works with membership values in a way that mimics Boolean logic. To this end, replacements for basic operators AND, OR, NOT must be available. There are several ways to this. A common replacement is called the*Zadeh operators*:{| class="wikitable"! Boolean! Fuzzy

*hedges*that can be applied. These are generally adverbs such as

*very*, or

*somewhat*, which modify the meaning of a set using a mathematical formula.{{Citation needed|date=September 2017}}However, an arbitrary choice table does not always define a fuzzy logic function. In the paper, a criterion has been formulated to recognize whether a given choice table defines a fuzzy logic function and a simple algorithm of fuzzy logic function synthesis has been proposed based on introduced concepts of constituents of minimum and maximum. A fuzzy logic function represents a disjunction of constituents of minimum, where a constituent of minimum is a conjunction of variables of the current area greater than or equal to the function value in this area (to the right of the function value in the inequality, including the function value).Another set of AND/OR operators is based on multiplicationx AND y = x*yx OR y = 1-(1-x)*(1-y) = x+y-x*y1-(1-x)*(1-y) comes from this:x OR y = NOT( AND( NOT(x), NOT(y) ) )x OR y = NOT( AND(1-x, 1-y) )x OR y = NOT( (1-x)*(1-y) )x OR y = 1-(1-x)*(1-y)

### IF-THEN rules

IF-THEN rules map input or computed truth values to desired output truth values. Example:IF temperature IS very cold THEN fan_speed is stoppedIF temperature IS cold THEN fan_speed is slowIF temperature IS warm THEN fan_speed is moderateIF temperature IS hot THEN fan_speed is highGiven a certain temperature, the fuzzy variable*hot*has a certain truth value, which is copied to the

*high*variable.Should an output variable occur in several THEN parts, then the values from the respective IF parts are combined using the OR operator.

### Defuzzification

The goal is to get a continuous variable from fuzzy truth values.{{Citation needed|date=September 2017}}This would be easy if the output truth values were exactly those obtained from fuzzification of a given number.Since, however, all output truth values are computed independently, in most cases they do not represent such a set of numbers.{{Citation needed|date=September 2017}}One has then to decide for a number that matches best the "intention" encoded in the truth value.For example, for several truth values of fan_speed, an actual speed must be found that best fits the computed truth values of the variables 'slow', 'moderate' and so on. {{Citation needed | date = September 2017 }}There is no single algorithm for this purpose.A common algorithm is- For each truth value, cut the membership function at this value
- Combine the resulting curves using the OR operator
- Find the center-of-weight of the area under the curve
- The x position of this center is then the final output.

## Forming a consensus of inputs and fuzzy rules

Since the fuzzy system output is a consensus of all of the inputs and all of the rules, fuzzy logic systems can be well behaved when input values are not available or are not trustworthy. Weightings can be optionally added to each rule in the rulebase and weightings can be used to regulate the degree to which a rule affects the output values. These rule weightings can be based upon the priority, reliability or consistency of each rule. These rule weightings may be static or can be changed dynamically, even based upon the output from other rules.## Early applications

Many of the early successful applications of fuzzy logic were implemented in Japan. The first notable application was on the subway train in Sendai, in which fuzzy logic was able to improve the economy, comfort, and precision of the ride.JOURNAL, Kosko, B, June 1, 1994, Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic, Hyperion, It has also been used in recognition of hand-written symbols in Sony pocket computers, flight aid for helicopters, controlling of subway systems in order to improve driving comfort, precision of halting, and power economy, improved fuel consumption for automobiles, single-button control for washing machines, automatic motor control for vacuum cleaners with recognition of surface condition and degree of soiling, and prediction systems for early recognition of earthquakes through the Institute of Seismology Bureau of Meteorology, Japan.BOOK, Bansod, Nitin A, Kulkarni, Marshall, Patil, S.H., Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Engineering, Soft Computing, 2005, Allied Publishers, 978-81-7764-632-0, 73,weblink 9 November 2018, harv, Soft Computing- A Fuzzy Logic Approach,## Logical analysis

In mathematical logic, there are several formal systems of "fuzzy logic", most of which are in the family of t-norm fuzzy logics.### Propositional fuzzy logics

The most important propositional fuzzy logics are:- Monoidal t-norm-based propositional fuzzy logic MTL is an axiomatization of logic where conjunction is defined by a left continuous t-norm and implication is defined as the residuum of the t-norm. Its models correspond to MTL-algebras that are pre-linear commutative bounded integral residuated lattices.
- Basic propositional fuzzy logic BL is an extension of MTL logic where conjunction is defined by a continuous t-norm, and implication is also defined as the residuum of the t-norm. Its models correspond to BL-algebras.
- Åukasiewicz fuzzy logic is the extension of basic fuzzy logic BL where standard conjunction is the Åukasiewicz t-norm. It has the axioms of basic fuzzy logic plus an axiom of double negation, and its models correspond to MV-algebras.
- GÃ¶del fuzzy logic is the extension of basic fuzzy logic BL where conjunction is GÃ¶del t-norm. It has the axioms of BL plus an axiom of idempotence of conjunction, and its models are called G-algebras.
- Product fuzzy logic is the extension of basic fuzzy logic BL where conjunction is product t-norm. It has the axioms of BL plus another axiom for cancellativity of conjunction, and its models are called product algebras.
- Fuzzy logic with evaluated syntax (sometimes also called Pavelka's logic), denoted by EVÅ, is a further generalization of mathematical fuzzy logic. While the above kinds of fuzzy logic have traditional syntax and many-valued semantics, in EVÅ is evaluated also syntax. This means that each formula has an evaluation. Axiomatization of EVÅ stems from Åukasziewicz fuzzy logic. A generalization of classical GÃ¶del completeness theorem is provable in EVÅ.

### Predicate fuzzy logics

These extend the above-mentioned fuzzy logics by adding universal and existential quantifiers in a manner similar to the way that predicate logic is created from propositional logic. The semantics of the universal (resp. existential) quantifier in t-norm fuzzy logics is the infimum (resp. supremum) of the truth degrees of the instances of the quantified subformula.### Decidability issues for fuzzy logic

The notions of a "decidable subset" and "recursively enumerable subset" are basic ones for classical mathematics and classical logic. Thus the question of a suitable extension of them to fuzzy set theory is a crucial one. A first proposal in such a direction was made by E.S. Santos by the notions of*fuzzy Turing machine*,

*Markov normal fuzzy algorithm*and

*fuzzy program*(see Santos 1970). Successively, L. Biacino and G. Gerla argued that the proposed definitions are rather questionable. For example, in JOURNAL, Gerla, G., 2016, Comments on some theories of fuzzy computation, International Journal of General Systems, 45, 4, 372â€“392, 10.1080/03081079.2015.1076403, 2016IJGS...45..372G, one shows that the fuzzy Turing machines are not adequate for fuzzy language theory since there are natural fuzzy languages intuitively computable that cannot be recognized by a fuzzy Turing Machine. Then, they proposed the following definitions. Denote by

*Ãœ*the set of rational numbers in [0,1]. Then a fuzzy subset

*s*:

*S*rightarrow[0,1] of a set

*S*is recursively enumerable if a recursive map

*h*:

*S*Ã—

*N*rightarrow

*Ãœ*exists such that, for every

*x*in

*S*, the function

*h*(

*x*,

*n*) is increasing with respect to

*n*and

*s*(

*x*) = lim

*h*(

*x*,

*n*).We say that

*s*is

*decidable*if both

*s*and its complement â€“

*s*are recursively enumerable. An extension of such a theory to the general case of the L-subsets is possible (see Gerla 2006).The proposed definitions are well related with fuzzy logic. Indeed, the following theorem holds true (provided that the deduction apparatus of the considered fuzzy logic satisfies some obvious effectiveness property).Any "axiomatizable" fuzzy theory is recursively enumerable. In particular, the fuzzy set of logically true formulas is recursively enumerable in spite of the fact that the crisp set of valid formulas is not recursively enumerable, in general. Moreover, any axiomatizable and complete theory is decidable.It is an open question to give supports for a "Church thesis" for fuzzy mathematics, the proposed notion of recursive enumerability for fuzzy subsets is the adequate one. In order to solve this, an extension of the notions of fuzzy grammar and fuzzy Turing machine are necessary. Another open question is to start from this notion to find an extension of GÃ¶del's theorems to fuzzy logic.

## Fuzzy databases

Once fuzzy relations are defined, it is possible to develop fuzzy relational databases. The first fuzzy relational database, FRDB, appeared in Maria Zemankova's dissertation (1983). Later, some other models arose like the Buckles-Petry model, the Prade-Testemale Model, the Umano-Fukami model or the GEFRED model by J.M. Medina, M.A. Vila et al.Fuzzy querying languages have been defined, such as the SQLf by P. Bosc et al. and the FSQL by J. Galindo et al. These languages define some structures in order to include fuzzy aspects in the SQL statements, like fuzzy conditions, fuzzy comparators, fuzzy constants, fuzzy constraints, fuzzy thresholds, linguistic labels etc.The knowledge graph Weaviate uses fuzzy logic to index data based on a machine learning model called the Contextionary.## Comparison to probability

Fuzzy logic and probability address different forms of uncertainty. While both fuzzy logic and probability theory can represent degrees of certain kinds of subjective belief, fuzzy set theory uses the concept of fuzzy set membership, i.e., how much an observation is within a vaguely defined set, and probability theory uses the concept of subjective probability, i.e., likelihood of some event or condition {{what|date=April 2019}}. The concept of fuzzy sets was developed in the mid-twentieth century at Berkeley WEB,weblink Lofti Zadeh Berkeley, no,weblink 2017-02-11, as a response to the lacking of probability theory for jointly modelling uncertainty and vagueness.JOURNAL, Fuzzy Sets, Scholarpedia, 1, 10, 2031, 10.4249/scholarpedia.2031, 2006, Mares, Milan, 2006SchpJ...1.2031M, Bart Kosko claims in Fuzziness vs. ProbabilityWEB, Kosko, Bart, Bart Kosko, Fuzziness vs. Probability,weblink University of South California, 9 November 2018, harv, that probability theory is a subtheory of fuzzy logic, as questions of degrees of belief in mutually-exclusive set membership in probability theory can be represented as certain cases of non-mutually-exclusive graded membership in fuzzy theory. In that context, he also derives Bayes' theorem from the concept of fuzzy subsethood. Lotfi A. Zadeh argues that fuzzy logic is different in character from probability, and is not a replacement for it. He fuzzified probability to fuzzy probability and also generalized it to possibility theory.JOURNAL, NovÃ¡k, V, 2005, Are fuzzy sets a reasonable tool for modeling vague phenomena?, Fuzzy Sets and Systems, 156, 3, 341â€“348, 10.1016/j.fss.2005.05.029, More generally, fuzzy logic is one of many different extensions to classical logic intended to deal with issues of uncertainty outside of the scope of classical logic, the inapplicability of probability theory in many domains, and the paradoxes of Dempster-Shafer theory.## Relation to ecorithms

Computational theorist Leslie Valiant uses the term*ecorithms*to describe how many less exact systems and techniques like fuzzy logic (and "less robust" logic) can be applied to learning algorithms. Valiant essentially redefines machine learning as evolutionary. In general use, ecorithms are algorithms that learn from their more complex environments (hence

*eco-*) to generalize, approximate and simplify solution logic. Like fuzzy logic, they are methods used to overcome continuous variables or systems too complex to completely enumerate or understand discretely or exactly. BOOK, Valiant, Leslie, Probably Approximately Correct: Nature's Algorithms for Learning and Prospering in a Complex World, 2013, Basic Books, New York, 978-0465032716, harv, Ecorithms and fuzzy logic also have the common property of dealing with possibilities more than probabilities, although feedback and feed forward, basically stochastic weights, are a feature of both when dealing with, for example, dynamical systems.

## Compensatory fuzzy logic

Compensatory fuzzy logic (CFL) is a branch of fuzzy logic with modified rules for conjunction and disjunction. When the truth value of one component of a conjunction or disjunction is increased or decreased, the other component is decreased or increased to compensate. This increase or decrease in truth value may be offset by the increase or decrease in another component. An offset may be blocked when certain thresholds are met. Proponents{{who|date=July 2015}} claim that CFL allows for better computational semantic behaviors and mimic natural language.{{vague|date=July 2015}}WEB,weblink Archived copy, 2015-10-02, no,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20151004060002weblink">weblink 2015-10-04, JOURNAL, Veri, Francesco, 2017, Fuzzy Multiple Attribute Conditions in fsQCA: Problems and Solutions, Sociological Methods & Research, 004912411772969, 10.1177/0049124117729693, Compensatory Fuzzy Logic consists of four continuous operators: conjunction (c); disjunction (d); fuzzy strict order (or); and negation (n). The conjunction is the geometric mean and its dual as conjunctive and disjunctive operators.JOURNAL, Cejas, JesÃºs, Compensatory Fuzzy Logic, Revista de IngenierÃa Industrial, 2011, 1815-5936,## IEEE STANDARD 1855â€“2016 â€“ IEEE Standard for Fuzzy Markup Language

The IEEE 1855, the IEEE STANDARD 1855â€“2016, is about a specification language named Fuzzy Markup Language (FML)JOURNAL, Acampora, Giovanni, Di Stefano, Bruno N., Vitiello, Autilia, IEEE 1855â„¢: The First IEEE Standard Sponsored by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society [Society Briefs], IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine, 2016, 11, 4, 4â€“6, 10.1109/MCI.2016.2602068, harv, developed by the IEEE Standards Association. FML allows modelling a fuzzy logic system in a human-readable and hardware independent way. FML is based on eXtensible Markup Language (XML). The designers of fuzzy systems with FML have a unified and high-level methodology for describing interoperable fuzzy systems. IEEE STANDARD 1855â€“2016 uses the W3C XML Schema definition language to define the syntax and semantics of the FML programs.Prior to the introduction of FML, fuzzy logic practitioners could exchange information about their fuzzy algorithms by adding to their software functions the ability to read, correctly parse, and store the result of their work in a form compatible with the Fuzzy Control Language (FCL) described and specified by Part 7 of IEC 61131.BOOK, Di Stefano, Bruno N., On the Power of Fuzzy Markup Language, 296, 2013, 3â€“15, 1434-9922, 10.1007/978-3-642-35488-5_1, Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing, 978-3-642-35487-8, On the Need of a Standard Language for Designing Fuzzy Systems, BOOK, Acampora, Giovanni, Loia, Vincenzo, Lee, Chang-Shing, Wang, Mei-Hui, On the Power of Fuzzy Markup Language, 296, 2013, 1434-9922, 10.1007/978-3-642-35488-5, Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing, 978-3-642-35487-8,## See also
