Fuzzy logic is key to the efficient working of many consumer, industrial and financial applications. Providing a brief history of the subject as well as analysing the system architecture of a fuzzy controller, this book gives a full and clearly set out introduction to the topic.

As an essential guide to this subject for many engineering disciplines, Foundations of Fuzzy Control successfully exploits established results in linear and non-linear control theory.  It presents a full coverage of fuzzy control, from basic mathematics to feedback control, all in a tutorial style.

In particular this book:

  • Systematically analyses several fuzzy PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) control systems and state space control, and also self-learning control mechanisms
  • Sets out practical worked through problems, examples and case studies to illustrate each type of control system
  • Provides an accompanying Web site that contains downloadable Matlab programs.

This book is an invaluable resource for a broad spectrum of researchers, practitioners, and students in engineering.  In particular it is especially relevant for those in mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as those in artificial intelligence, machine learning, bio-informatics, and operational research.  It is also a useful reference for practising engineers, working on the development of fuzzy control applications and system architectures.
