Although data engineering is a multi-disciplinary field with applications in control, decision theory, and the emerging hot area of bioinformatics, there are no books on the market that make the subject accessible to non-experts. This book fills the gap in the field, offering a clear, user-friendly introduction to the main theoretical and practical tools for analyzing complex systems. An ftp site features the corresponding MATLAB and Mathematical tools and simulations.
Market: Researchers in data management, electrical engineering, computer science, and life sciences.

"To cope with real world uncertainties and provide a philosophical and practical guide...several methodologies are presented..." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 4, December 2001)

"...certainly a book that should be in the library of any institution where research and advanced study in fuzzy systems are carried out." (Choice, Vol. 39, No. 7, March 2002)

"...well organized, easy to read, and self-contained.... I would recommend it to anyone interested in self-study of the basic ideas of fuzzy systems..." (International Journal of General Systems, Vol. 31, No. 6, 2002)
