    Full Text Available ResumoConciliar a conservação de florestas nativas e a produção agropecuária em estabelecimentos rurais é uma tarefa complexa que demanda abordagens sistêmicas e multidisciplinares que incluam, além de aspectos biológicos dos recursos, outros de natureza socioeconômica, cultural e mesmo psicológica. Para identificar e comparar a intenção comportamental de agricultores da região Oeste de Santa Catarina para a conservação e manejo de florestas nativas em seus imóveis rurais, foi utilizada neste trabalho a Teoria do Comportamento Planejado. Verificou-se que a Intenção Comportamental de agricultores de diferentes sistemas de produção e de agricultores com e sem dependência por recursos florestais nativos para compor a renda, diferem. Diferenças entre grupos de agricultores em relação aos resultados da Atitude e do Controle Comportamental Percebido estavam associadas de forma coerente com aspectos socioeconômicos e ambientais. Os resultados das Normas Subjetivas indicam que a família é a principal referência dos agricultores, exercendo pressão positiva para a conservação florestal.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: O processo de luto devido à perda gestacional apresenta várias particularidades que devem ser consideradas no atendimento clínico daqueles que passam por uma experiência de aborto. Pacientes enlutados apresentam maior procura por assistência médica e número de hospitalizações e são mais vulneráveis a problemas psicossomáticos que a população geral. OBJETIVO: Apresentar um caso de tratamento de luto, decorrente de perda gestacional, com protocolo cognitivista comportamental. MÉTODO: O processo terapêutico foi composto por 12 sessões e o protocolo envolvia desenvolvimento de estratégias para lidar com as principais queixas somáticas, aprendizagem de novas habilidades, trabalho das alterações emocionais e cognitivas e treinamento para manejo dos problemas comportamentais. Os resultados foram avaliados por meio das escalas: Inventário Beck de Depressão, Inventário Beck de Ansiedade, Escala Beck de Desesperança e Questionário de Saúde Geral de Goldberg (QSG. RESULTADOS: O paciente apresentou redução nos sintomas de depressão e ansiedade, assim como em desesperança. Todos os fatores do QSG apresentaram redução, com forte declínio em "desejabilidade de morte" e "desordens psicossomáticas". Também foi notada melhora na qualidade de sono. CONCLUSÃO: O tratamento se mostrou efetivo em relação aos fatores apresentados, além de colaborar para melhor qualidade de vida e facilitação da reinserção social do paciente.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: Avaliar a eficácia do tratamento cognitivo e/ou comportamental no transtorno de ansiedade social quando comparado a outras intervenções terapêuticas, incluindo farmacoterapia. MÉTODO: Realizamos análise sistemática de todos os ensaios clínicos controlados randomizados envolvendo terapia cognitiva e/ou comportamental versus outras formas de tratamento, publicados até março de 2009, indexados nas seguintes bases de dados: MEDLINE, PsycINFO, Registro Cochrane de Ensaios Controlados, LILACS e ISI/Web of Science. RESULTADOS: Os estudos avaliados não demonstraram diferenças significativas entre a terapia cognitiva e/ou comportamental e a farmacoterapia. Esses tratamentos combinados não apresentaram maior eficácia do que as intervenções isoladamente. Quando comparada ao grupo controle, a terapia cognitiva e/ou comportamental é eficaz na redução dos sintomas de ansiedade social, tanto no seu formato padrão quanto nas novas formas de intervenção. A exceção foi o treino em habilidades sociais, que, isoladamente, não se mostrou eficaz. A terapia cognitiva e/ou comportamental também demonstrou ser superior aos outros tipos de psicoterapias. CONCLUSÃO: A terapia cognitiva e/ou comportamental mostrou-se eficaz na redução da ansiedade social em pacientes com transtorno de ansiedade social. No entanto, a heterogeneidade dos estudos avaliados, seja no que diz respeito a aspectos envolvendo o tratamento (duração do tratamento e protocolos utilizados ou os pacientes avaliados (gravidade e forma de recrutamento, dificultaram a comparação dos resultados.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Recent studies suggest that, when combined with pharmacotherapy, structured psychotherapy may modify the course of bipolar disorder. However, there are few studies that have examined the effects of cognitive behavioral group therapy on the course of this disorder. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of 14 sessions of cognitive behavioral group therapy, combined with pharmacotherapy, on the treatment of patients with bipolar disorder, and to compare our results against those from the use of pharmacotherapy alone. METHOD: Forty-one patients with bipolar I and II disorder participated in the study and were randomly allocated to one of two treatment groups; thirty-seven patients remained in the study until its completion. Mood and anxiety symptoms were measured in all subjects. Statistical analysis was used to investigate if the groups differed with respect to demographic characteristics and the scores recorded in the pre- and post-treatment stages, as well as during treatment (intra/inter groups. RESULTS: Patients showed statistically similar population characteristics. The association of cognitive behavioral group therapy and pharmacological treatment proved to be effective. Patients who had undergone cognitive behavioral group therapy presented fewer symptoms of mania, depression and anxiety, as well as fewer and shorter mood change episodes.

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available Existen dos problemas conceptuales respecto de la definición de pobreza: la pobreza no sólo involucra aspectos relacionados con el consumo, sino además aspectos vinculados a la calidad de vida, como por ejemplo educación y salud. Dado que el ingreso es más fácil de cuantificar se suele definir a un individuo como pobre si su ingreso total está por debajo de cierto nivel. Quienes se preocupan más por la calidad de vida prefieren definir la pobreza en términos de consumo total, ya que esta medida se aproximaría más a la realidad de las oportunidades disponibles para cada individuo. Dado que los indicadores habituales de pobreza no contemplan este tipo de complementación, proponemos en este trabajo un análisis mediante la utilización de metodología fuzzy, consistente en definir dos indicadores: uno referido a la extensión y otro a la intensidad de la pobreza.

    Full Text Available Cloacal temperature (CT of broiler chickens is an important parameter to classify its comfort status; therefore its prediction can be used as decision support to turn on acclimatization systems. The aim of this research was to develop and validate a system using the fuzzy set theory for CT prediction of broiler chickens. The fuzzy system was developed based on three input variables: air temperature (T, relative humidity (RH and air velocity (V. The output variable was the CT. The fuzzy inference system was performed via Mamdani's method which consisted in 48 rules. The defuzzification was done using center of gravity method. The fuzzy system was developed using MAPLE® 8. Experimental results, used for validation, showed that the average standard deviation between simulated and measured values of CT was 0.13°C. The proposed fuzzy system was found to satisfactorily predict CT based on climatic variables. Thus, it could be used as a decision support system on broiler chicken growth.A temperatura cloacal (TC de frangos de corte é um importante parâmetro para classificar a sua condição de conforto, portanto, a sua predição pode ser usada no suporte à decisão de acionamento de sistemas de climatização.

    Full Text Available Levando em consideração que o homem é o único animal capaz de modificar seu corpo através do pensamento, a Terapia Cognitivo Comportamental (TCC vem se configurando como um importante aliado no combate à obesidade, proporcionando uma reestruturação cognitiva capaz de modificar não apenas um corpo obeso, mas modificar todo um estilo de vida. A terapia cognitivo-comportamental (TCC tem sido amplamente usada no tratamento da obesidade em associação com outras intervenções, como o acompanhamento nutricional e a prática de atividade física. A TCC é uma terapia de duração breve e com sessões estruturadas nas quais o paciente é solicitado a colaborar ativamente na identificação e na mudança de seus comportamentos e sentimentos que contribuem para a obesidade. O objetivo do presente trabalho é verificar a eficácia do apoio psicoterápico com base na Terapia Cognitivo Comportamental na redução de peso de pacientes obesos.

    The hydraulic fracture operation is wide used to increase the oil wells production and to reduce formation damage. Reservoir studies and engineer analysis are made to select the wells for this kind of operation. As the reservoir parameters have some diffuses characteristics, Fuzzy Inference Systems (SIF) have been tested for this selection processes in the last few years. This paper compares the performance of a neuro fuzzy system and a genetic fuzzy system used for hydraulic Fracture well selection, with knowledge acquisition from an operational data base to set the SIF membership functions. The training data and the validation data used were the same for both systems. We concluded that, in despite of the genetic fuzzy system would be a younger process, it got better results than the neuro fuzzy system. Another conclusion was that, as the genetic fuzzy system can work with constraints, the membership functions setting kept the consistency of variables linguistic values. (author)

    Full Text Available Entender o comportamento e suas pequenas variações decorrentes das mudanças do ambiente térmico e desenvolver modelos que simulem o bem-estar a partir de respostas das aves ao ambiente constituem o primeiro passo para a criação de um sistema de monitoramento digital de aves em galpões de produção. Neste trabalho, foi desenvolvido um sistema de suporte à decisão com base na teoria dos conjuntos fuzzy para a estimativa do bem-estar de matrizes pesadas em função de frequências e duração dos comportamentos expressos pelas aves. O desenvolvimento do sistema passou por cinco etapas distintas: 1 organização dos dados experimentais; 2 apresentação dos vídeos em entrevista com "especialista"; 3 criação das funções de pertinência com base nas entrevistas e na revisão da literatura; 4 simulação de frequências de ocorrências e tempos médios de expressão dos comportamentos classificados como indicadores de bem-estar utilizando equações de regressão obtidas na literatura, e 5 construção das regras, simulação e validação do sistema. O sistema fuzzy desenvolvido estimou satisfatoriamente o bem-estar de matrizes pesadas, tendo na sua última versão, com maior número de regras, acertado 77,8% dos dados experimentais, comparados com as respostas esperadas por um especialista. O sistema pode ser utilizado como instrumento matemático-computacional para apoiar decisões em galpões de produção de matrizes pesadas.To understand the behavior and its small variations originated from changes of the thermal environment and to develop models that simulate the welfare from broiler breeders' answer to the environment constitute the first step for the creation of a system for digital monitoring of broiler breeders housing.

    Full Text Available Questões relacionadas à assertividade têm recebido atenção por parte de terapeutas comportamentais há mais de três décadas. É mais recente, porém, o esforço de terapeutas analítico-comportamentais para examinar problemas dessa ordem com os mesmos recursos conceituais e metodológicos empregados por seus pares da pesquisa básica e conceitual. O presente trabalho tem como objetivo oferecer uma interpretação analítico-comportamental para padrões de comportamento assertivos, agressivos e passivos. Recuperamos algumas definições de assertividade/agressividade/passividade e examinamos os fenômenos correspondentes enquanto relações comportamentais; discutimos alguns aspectos da abordagem analítico-comportamental para o autocontrole; e sugerimos que as relações comportamentais definidas como assertividade/agressividade/passividade podem ser interpretadas enquanto instâncias de autocontrole ou impulsividade. A abordagem pode abrir novas perspectivas de investigação clínica de habilidades sociais sob um enfoque analítico-comportamental.

    Full Text Available El triaje de emergencia persigue desarrollar el proceso de valorización clínica preliminar para ordenar los pacientes según el nivel de urgencia o gravedad, antes de la atención médica, de forma que en una condición de saturación del servicio o disminución de recursos, los pacientes más graves sean tratados con prioridad. Un proceso de triaje presenta un alto grado de imprecisión o incertidumbre al momento de expresar el estado de salud de un paciente, en consecuencia puede haber dificultad y riesgo en la clasificación de las urgencias. En los servicios de emergencias de loshospitales públicos venezolanos, en especial el servicio de emergencia del Hospital Universitario de Caracas (HUC, seha evidenciado un incremento en el número de casos que se atienden, siendo una constante la saturación del servicio, lo cual imposibilita que los pacientes con prioridad de atención, sean tratados más rápidamente de forma oportuna y eficaz. En este trabajo se propone un modelo conceptual de datos difuso de triaje para el sector salud venezolano basado en el proceso de triaje hospitalario de la Sociedad Venezolana de Medicina de Emergencia y Desastres (SVMED, ya que un modelo de datos que contemple la representación de atributos difusos puede representar de mejor forma los requerimientos del sistema.

    Full Text Available A avaliação dos riscos de que os controles internos de uma entidade possam falhar constitui-se em significativo desafio para os auditores independentes de demonstrações contábeis. As metodologias de trabalho empregadas para tal finalidade, normalmente, utilizam a lógica clássica, ou também denominada binária, presumindo que os fatores de riscos estão presentes, ou não, em um determinado tipo de processo de controle. O objetivo deste trabalho foi conceber um modelo de avaliação de risco dos controles internos de uma entidade utilizando a lógica nebulosa (fuzzy logic, para contemplar os elementos difusos que compõem os fatores desse tipo de risco analisados na auditoria de demonstrações contábeis. A validação conceitual do modelo concebido foi realizada por meio de entrevistas e debates com especialistas em auditoria de demonstrações contábeis e com consultas a bibliografias relevantes pertinentes. Como conclusão do estudo, ficou patente que o modelo de avaliação de risco, com o uso da lógica nebulosa, elimina a restrição binária da lógica clássica e permite tratar, de forma quantitativa, conceitos ambíguos através da aplicação de uma escala psicométrica, para refl etir predicados tais como: "muito bom", "bom", "razoável", "de grande importância", "de pouca importância" etc., tendo potencial para produzir resultados mais amplos e próximos da realidade.The assessment of the risks that an entity's internal control system may fail represents a significant challenge to independent auditors. The methodologies used to audit financial statements are usually supported by classical logic, also called binary logic, departing from the relatively simplistic premise that risk factors are either present or not in a certain kind of control process. This study aimed to conceive a risk assessment model for an entity's internal control system, using the fuzzy logic approach, to take into account the diffuse elements that

MÉTODO: A partir do banco de dados Medline, realizou-se revisão da literatura publicada a respeito do tratamento da fobia social por meio da terapia cognitivo-comportamental. RESULTADOS: Revisão da literatura sugere que a fobia social é uma condição prevalente e crônica, caracterizada por inibição social e timidez excessiva. Tanto o diagnóstico como o tratamento desse transtorno são comumente determinados pelo nível de incômodo e pelo prejuízo funcional. Estudos populacionais indicam taxas de prevalência ao longo da vida para a fobia social entre 2,5 e 13,3%. As principais técnicas utilizadas na terapia cognitivo-comportamental para a fobia social são descritas e exemplificadas em um relato de caso. CONCLUSÕES: Há consenso geral na literatura de que a terapia cognitivo-comportamental é eficaz tanto para o tratamento de jovens como de adultos com fobia social. Uma vez que a fobia social com freqüência tem início precoce, a identificação de crianças com risco acentuado para o desenvolvimento de fobia social deve ser priorizada em investigações futuras.OBJECTIVE: This article reviews relevant aspects of social phobia and the stages of treatment within cognitive-behavioral therapy in children and adolescents, as well as in adults.

    The well logs have a great applicability in the search and evaluation of hydrocarbon. In this work we calculate porosities of the Namorado field with help of the 'Fuzzy Rule'. This is done segmenting jointly both the neutron ({phi}{sub N}) and density ({phi}{sub d}) porosities logs in groups with better relation of internal linearity. The grouping is processed keeping the best number of groups, which is efficiently chosen by a criterion related to the minimum value of 'Fuzzy Validity' measurement. As a first step, we choose the {phi}{sub N} and {phi}{sub d} values only at that depths where cores exist. To prevent picking measurements errors a previous data filtering is performed by selecting only the and their correspondent values that exhibit a maximum discrepancy with core porosity ({phi}{sub C}) around 5pu (porosity unit). A conventional average porosity {phi}{sub MED}, mixing {phi}{sub N} and {phi}{sub d} is calculated at each point, concerning its own lithological and fluids characteristics. Finally, an inversion algorithm is applied to indicate the best curve curve that fit linearly {phi}{sub C} vs. {phi}{sub MED}, {phi}{sub C} vs. {phi}{sub D} and {phi}{sub C} vs. {phi}{sub N}, and at the same time determines the values of the constants to be extrapolated in order to calculate the porosity of the whole field.

    Full Text Available A estimativa de conforto térmico na avicultura moderna é importante para que sistemas de climatização possam ser acionados no tempo correto, diminuindo perdas e aumentando rendimentos. Embora a literatura corrente apresente alguns índices de conforto térmico, que são aplicados para essa estimativa, estes são baseados apenas em condições do ambiente térmico e não consideram fatores importantes inerentes aos animais, tais como genética e capacidade de aclimatação, provendo, geralmente, uma estimativa inadequada do conforto térmico das aves. Este trabalho desenvolveu o Índice Fuzzy de Conforto Térmico (IFCT, com o intuito de estimar o conforto térmico de frangos de corte, considerando que o mecanismo usado pelas aves para perda de calor em ambientes fora da zona termoneutra é a vasodilatação periférica, que aumenta a temperatura superficial, e que pode ser usada como indicador do estado de conforto. O IFCT foi desenvolvido a partir de dois experimentos, que proporcionaram 108 cenários ambientais diferentes. Foram usadas imagens termográficas infravermelhas, para o registro dos dados de temperaturas superficiais das penas e da pele, e o grau de empenamento das aves. Para os mesmos cenários de ambiente térmico observados nos experimentos, foram comparados os resultados obtidos usando o IFCT e o Índice de Temperatura e Umidade (ITU. Os resultados validaram o IFCT para a estimativa do conforto térmico de frangos de corte, sendo específico na estimativa de condições de perigo térmico, usual em alojamentos em países de clima tropical. Essa característica é desejável em modelos que estimem o bem-estar térmico de frangos de corte, pois situações classificadas como perigo acarretam no dispêndio de recursos para evitar perdas produtivas.Estimating thermal comfort in modern poultry production is important that acclimatization systems can be triggered at appropriate time reducing losses and increasing yield.

    Full Text Available A terapia cognitivo-comportamental é uma intervenção breve, semi-estruturada e orientada para metas, que tem sido amplamente utilizada nos centros de pesquisa e tratamento de transtornos alimentares. O presente artigo tem por objetivo descrever as principais estratégias cognitivas e comportamentais utilizadas no tratamento ambulatorial dos transtornos alimentares. Vários ensaios clínicos avaliaram a eficácia da terapia cognitivo-comportamental, indicando que ela favorece a remissão ou diminuição da freqüência de episódios de compulsão alimentar, dos comportamentos purgativos e da restrição alimentar. Tem sido relatada também melhora do humor, do funcionamento social, e diminuição da preocupação com peso e formato corporal.The cognitive-behavioural therapy is a brief, semi-structured and goal oriented intervention, which has been largely used in research and treatment centers specialized on eating disorders. The present article describes the main cognitive and behavioral strategies used in the outpatient treatment of eating disorders. Several clinical studies assessed the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioural therapy, indicating the remission or the reduction of the frequency of binge eating episodes, purgative behaviours and food restriction. Social and mood improvement, as well as reduction of weight and body shape concerns, have also been reported.

    Full Text Available Neste artigo apresenta-se a aplicação de um modelo híbrido, baseado na análise envoltória de dados e em conjuntos fuzzy, para estabelecer uma priorização dos modos de falha levantados numa análise dos modos e efeitos de falha. O objetivo principal é ilustrar a aplicabilidade da modelagem para analisar sistemas complexos, como o sistema de controle químico e volumétrico de uma usina nuclear do tipo água pressurizada, onde uma grande quantidade de modos de falha deve ser avaliada. O modelo apresentado possibilita tratar variáveis linguísticas, i.e., permite que se tratem as opiniões de especialistas de modo mais efetivo num contexto de análise de riscos industriais quando há poucos dados disponíveis, como pode ocorrer em projetos com inovação tecnológica. Os resultados obtidos demonstram o potencial e a viabilidade de se utilizar uma modelagem híbrida para se estabelecer uma ordem de prioridade entre os diferentes modos de falha associados a um sistema complexo.In this paper one presents a data envelopment analysis and fuzzy sets based hybrid model application, in order to establish a priority ranking for the failure modes evaluated in a failure mode and effect analysis. The main objective is to present the applicability of this hybrid model to analyze complex systems, as the chemical and volumetric control system of a pressurized water reactor power plant, where a great bunch of failure modes must typically be evaluated. The presented modeling makes it possible the consideration of linguistic variables, i.e., it permits that one considers most effectively expert opinion in a risk analysis context when scarce data is available, as may occur in the plant design phase. The results obtained demonstrated the powerfulness and the viability of use of the proposed hybrid modeling to establish a priority ranking among many failure modes concerning a complex system.

    Full Text Available A incontinência fecal, também conhecida como encoprese, é um transtorno de evacuação que acarreta prejuízos ao desenvolvimento psicossocial e orgânico da criança e do adolescente, e que demanda atenção e cuidado de pais e profissionais de saúde. No amplo contexto de tratamento da encoprese, a psicoterapia constitui importante recurso, sendo a terapia comportamental apontada como uma das modalidades mais promissoras e eficazes para o tratamento dessa dificuldade de eliminação. Este artigo apresenta o estudo dos efeitos do manejo comportamental de quadro de incontinência fecal em um adolescente de 14 anos, atendido em clínica-escola de Psicologia do interior do Estado de São Paulo durante 14 meses. A partir do referencial teórico da análise do comportamento, foi desenvolvido, em contexto psicoterápico, um conjunto de estratégias comportamentais com o cliente, bem como orientações aos pais, visando à gradativa extinção encoprética. No decorrer desse processo, o cliente apresentou significativas aquisições comportamentais de uso regular do banheiro e adequado controle esfincteriano, monitoradas semanalmente, que possibilitaram a plena extinção das ocorrências de sujidade, sendo avaliado o efeito em follow-up realizado três meses após o encerramento dessa intervenção.

    Full Text Available RESUMO
    O presente artigo tem como objetivo apresentar uma proposta de um modelo de formação comportamental para auditores contábeis independentes. Deste modo, inicialmente, discorre-se sobre os aspectos que devem ser considerados pelo profissional responsável pela gestão das pessoas nas organizações que prestam serviços de auditoria contábil independente, e do perfil destas pessoas requerido pelas empresas. Em seguida são identificadas as teorias que tratam da gestão de pessoas nas organizações, especificamente nos processos de recrutamento e seleção, capacitação e avaliação de desempenho. As empresas buscam profissionais com talentos e, principalmente, que saibam manter o equilíbrio entre a razão e a emoção no ambiente de trabalho. Na literatura que versa sobre a profissão do auditor contábil, é dada muita ênfase aos aspectos técnicos, tratando superficialmente ou renegando os aspectos comportamentais considerados importantes ao desempenho destes profissionais. Para confirmar essas afirmações e dar suporte ao delineamento do modelo, é realizada uma pesquisa de campo com os responsáveis pela gestão de pessoas em quatro empresas internacionais de auditoria contábil independente, que fazem parte das big five, e em uma empresa nacional. Assim, para o delineamento do modelo de formação, a ênfase desta pesquisa recai sobre os aspectos de liderança, comunicação, motivação, negociação, coaching, mentoring, administração de conflitos, trabalho em equipe, técnica de entrevista, análise transacional e de programação neurolingüística, que podem ser utilizados para o desenvolvimento de auditores contábeis independentes, de forma que possam melhorar suas condições de competitividade e empregabilidade. Portanto, são incorporados esses conceitos como ponto de partida para o delineamento de um modelo de formação comportamental

    Full Text Available Un data warehouse (DW es un repositorio de datos que provienen de distintas fuentes. Es un sistema para el análisis de datos usado para el apoyo a la toma de decisiones. En el ámbito de análisis de datos es usual encontrar relaciones entre los datos de naturaleza difusa. Por ejemplo, en un contexto académico la respuesta a la consulta "qué alumnos obtuvieron buena nota final" no puede ser obtenida desde un DW tradicional pues no maneja información cualitativa. Debido a las limitaciones de los DW tradicionales es que se pueden extender usando lógica difusa a un DW Difusos (DWD. Por otro lado, en el ciclo de desarrollo de DW se han considerado diversas metodologías y modelos que tienen como desventaja que no integran los distintos niveles de abstracción ni el proceso de diseño de DW. Sin embargo, el enfoque MDA es una alternativa de integración que otorga un marco de desarrollo integrado basado en la arquitectura de modelos y transformaciones entre distintos niveles de abstracción, que la hace adecuada para este tema. En este artículo se presenta un enfoque MDA para el diseño de un DWD que considera medidas difusas, relaciones difusas y niveles difusos, para lo cual se proponen un metamodelo CWM OLAP Difuso, reglas QVT y un ejemplo. También se presenta la secuencia metodológica para la aplicación de las reglas QVT.

  15. Aromaticity measures from fuzzy-atom bond orders (FBO). The aromatic fluctuation (FLU) and the para-delocalization (PDI) indexes.

    In the past few years, there has been a growing interest for aromaticity measures based on electron density descriptors, the para-delocalization (PDI) and the aromatic fluctuation (FLU) indexes being two recent examples. These aromaticity indexes have been applied successfully to describe the aromaticity of carbon skeleton molecules. Although the results obtained are encouraging, because they follow the trends of other existing aromaticity measures, their calculation is rather expensive because they are based on electron delocalization indexes (DI) that involve cumbersome atomic integrations. However, cheaper electron-sharing indexes (ESIs), which in principle could play the same role as the DI in such aromaticity calculations, can be found in the literature. In this letter we show that PDI and FLU can be calculated using fuzzy-atom bond order (FBO) measures instead of DIs with an important saving of computing time. In addition, a basis-set-dependence study is performed to assess the reliability of these measures. FLU and PDI based on FBO are shown to be both good aromaticity indexes and almost basis-set-independent measures. This result opens up a wide range of possibilities for PDI and FLU to also be calculated on large organic systems. As an example, the DI and FBO-based FLU and PDI indexes have also been calculated and compared for the C60 molecule.

    Full Text Available Anorexia nervosa é um distúrbio de ordem comportamental definido como inanição deliberada e auto-imposta seguida de busca constante de magreza e medo mórbido de engordar. Bulimia nervosa também é um distúrbio de comportamento caracterizada pela ingestão compulsiva de grande quantidade de alimentos, alternando-se com ações dirigidas a evitar ganho de peso, como por exemplo o vômito auto-induzido. A ocorrência destas doenças tem aumentado, embora não existam dados epidemiológicos de ordem populacional no Brasil. Tais distúrbios geram freqüentemente erosão dental devido ao ambiente bucal extremamente ácido resultante do comportamento dos pacientes. O cirurgião-dentista pode ser o primeiro profissional a detectar estas doenças.

    Full Text Available Este estudo teve como objetivo validar a escala Need For Cognition (NFC em estudos em Contabilidade comportamental. Ademais, buscou-se medir possíveis correlações entre o nível de necessidade de cognição e a existência de vieses cognitivos em decisões contábeis e financeiras. Para efetivar o processo de validação completo, foram realizadas duas validações - critério e construto. A análise foi feita mediante a apreciação de uma amostra formada por 128 estudantes de pós-graduação. A técnica estatística utilizada para validação desse teste foi a análise fatorial, por possuir a capacidade de determinar o grau de influência de determinada variável na explicação de um fator, e, para o tratamento dos dados, foi utilizada a regressão logística por possibilitar a explicação de valores em função de valores conhecidos ou de variáveis independentes. Os resultados da validade de construto apontaram a legitimidade do NFC como escala unidimensional, excluindo-se três outputs de sua escala original; já os resultados da validade de critério confirmaram o impacto do nível de cognição na maximização da ocorrência de heurísticas em decisões gerenciais.

    Full Text Available A regulação das emoções representa uma habilidade fundamental para a interação social, influenciando o comportamento e a expressão emocional. É objetivo deste artigo revisar os trabalhos científicos sobre as diferentes estratégias de regulação da emoção e os circuitos cerebrais subjacentes. Os trabalhos que utilizaram a estratégia de reavaliação cognitiva observaram um padrão de ativação cerebral caracterizado por uma ativação significativa do córtex pré-frontal e uma diminuição da ativação da amígdala, sugerindo que o primeiro poderia estar modulando a atividade da última. Trabalhos recentes observaram que mudanças cognitivas e comportamentais mediadas pela psicoterapia parecem levar a alterações na ativação de circuitos cerebrais envolvendo o córtex pré-frontal, e apontam para a possibilidade de modificação de associações neurais observadas em pacientes com transtornos psiquiátricos. Conclui-se que os estudos sobre a neurobiologia da regulação da emoção têm implicações potenciais para a compreensão das bases psicopatológicas subjacentes aos transtornos psiquiátricos, orientando desenvolvimentos heurísticos e clínicos.La regulación emocional se constituye en un elemento clave en el comportamiento social, regulando las acciones y la expresión emocional.

    2000-07-01

    This work presents a fuzzy logic controller design for neutron power control, from its source to its full power level, applied to a nuclear reactor model. First, we present the basic definitions on fuzzy sets as generalized definitions of the crisp (non fuzzy) set theory. Likewise, we define the basic operations on fuzzy sets (complement, union, and intersection), and the operations on fuzzy relations such as projection and cylindrical extension operations. Furthermore, some concepts of the fuzzy control theory, such as the main modules of the typical fuzzy controller structure and its internal variables, are defined. After the knowledge base is obtained by simulation of the reactor behavior, where the controlled system is modeled by a simple nonlinear reactor model, this model is used to infer a set of fuzzy rules for the reactor response to different insertions of reactivity. The reduction of the response time, using fuzzy rule based controllers on this reactor, is possible by adjusting the output membership functions, by selecting fuzzy rule sets, or by increasing the number of crisp inputs to the fuzzy controller. System characteristics, such as number of rules, response times, and safety parameter values, were considered in the evaluation of each controller merits. Different fuzzy controllers are designed to attain the desired power level, to maintain a constant level for long periods of time, and to keep the reactor away from a shutdown condition. The basic differences among the controllers are the number of crisp inputs and the novel implementation of a crisp power level-based selection of different sets of output membership functions. Simulation results highlight, mainly: (1) A decrease of the response variations at low power level, and (2) a decrease in the time required to attain the desired neutron power. Finally, we present a comparative study of different fuzzy control algorithms applied to a nuclear model. (Author)

  6. Uma metodologia baseada no modelo SCOR® e em inferência fuzzy para apoiar a avaliação de desempenho de fornecedores

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco Rodrigues Lima Junior

    Full Text Available Resumo Na literatura acadêmica, tanto a seleção quanto a avaliação para o desenvolvimento de fornecedores vêm sendo abordadas como um problema de tomada de decisão no qual um conjunto de fornecedores é avaliado com base em múltiplos critérios de desempenho. Embora já existam centenas de metodologias quantitativas voltadas para o apoio à etapa de seleção de fornecedores, a avaliação de desempenho objetivando o desenvolvimento de fornecedores ainda é pouco explorada na literatura. Além disso, a maioria das abordagens existentes apresentam algumas limitações devido ao uso de técnicas inadequadas. Diante disso, este estudo propõe uma nova metodologia de apoio à avaliação de desempenho de fornecedores, desenvolvida a partir da combinação de sistemas de inferência fuzzy com alguns indicadores de desempenho do modelo SCOR® (Supply Chain Operations Reference. A abordagem proposta permite avaliar aspectos relacionados ao desempenho das operações e aos custos do fornecedor. Os resultados dessa avaliação são usados para categorizar os fornecedores com desempenho similar e indicar diretrizes adequadas para o gerenciamento de cada grupo de fornecedores. Visando demonstrar o processo de modelagem e uso, bem como avaliar a adequabilidade da proposta, foi realizada uma aplicação piloto que envolveu a avaliação de 10 fornecedores de uma empresa do setor automotivo. Quatro sistemas de inferência fuzzy foram implementados usando MATLAB® e parametrizados de acordo com os julgamentos de dois funcionários da empresa. Também foi realizada uma análise de sensibilidade para verificar a consistência dos resultados fornecidos por esses sistemas. Os resultados obtidos reforçam a adequação da metodologia proposta e das parametrizações realizadas durante a implementação. Quando comparada com as metodologias de avaliação de fornecedores encontradas na literatura, esta abordagem apresenta vantagens como o apontamento de

    Full Text Available Este trabalho tem por objetivo realizar uma revisão teórica a respeito do sono e dos sonhos de alcoolistas de acordo com a Terapia Cognitivo-Comportamental, aprofundando aspectos cognitivos e neurológicos. Na medida em que esta é a abordagem psicoterápica mais indicada para dependência química, os sonhos, utilizados na Terapia Psicanalítica, tiveram de ser estudados sob o enfoque cognitivo-comportamental, para que pudessem ser aproveitados na clínica com estes pacientes. As alterações no sono de alcoolistas, por exemplo, pode servir como alerta quanto a um risco de recaída, o que indica que a avaliação do sono não pode ser desconsiderada pelos profissionais, durante o tratamento destes pacientes. O relato dos sonhos, por sua vez, pode ser um instrumento terapêutico muito valioso por oferecer pistas a respeito do quanto o craving está presente naqueles que estão tentando manter-se em abstinência. Se os profissionais forem bem sucedidos quanto à identificação precoce de uma situação de risco como o craving, poderão ser mais efetivos quanto à prevenção da recaída. Conclui-se quanto à necessidade de que sejam feitas novas pesquisas a respeito dos sonhos de acordo com esta abordagem teórica, bem como avaliada a sua aplicação na área da dependência química.Este trabajo tiene como objetivo realizar uma revisión teórica a respecto del sueño y de los sueños de alcohólicos, teniendo en vista la Terapia Cognitivo-Comportamental, profundizando aspectos cognitivos y neurológicos.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo presenta un panorama general acerca del estudio de la consciencia y de cómo podría conceptualizarse desde una perspectiva conductual. Se discuten las principales contribuciones del análisis experimental de la conducta y se comparan con las de los más importantes enfoques teóricos sobre la consciencia. Los primeros apartados se centran en los aspectos teóricos y empíricos relacionados con el concepto de consciencia. Los siguientes apartados versan sobre una epistemología conductual en medio de las perspectivas fenomenológica, cognoscitiva y biológica, así como algunos desarrollos en el campo del análisis de la conducta (p. ej., conducta verbal, conducta gobernada por reglas y control del estímulo, que se constituyen en alternativas a los recuentos mentalistas. Se concluye que la consciencia, desde una perspectiva comportamental, debe entenderse como conducta consciente y no como un concepto para explicar el comportamiento en sí.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available This article considers the use of fuzzy logic to support the evaluation of project status. A brief description of fuzzy set theory, fuzzy logic and the process of calculation is given. The major goal of this paper is to present an expert decision-making fuzzy model for evaluating project status. The model results from the application of the Fuzzy Logic Toolbox. This fuzzy model is based on two basic indices, schedule performance index (SPI and cost performance index (CPI, of earned value management (EVM. The ad- vantage of the fuzzy model is the ability to transform the input indices SPI and CPI into linguistic variables, as well as linguistic evaluation of over- all project status (output. With this approach it is possible to simulate the risk and uncertainty that are always associated with real projects. The scheme of the model, rule block, attributes and their membership functions are mentioned in a case study. The case study contains real data on the development of values of indices SPI and CPI for one project in the field of IT (data file. The analysed project ran from March 2012 to July 2012. The indices SPI and CPI were obtained from control project milestones. There are 5 control milestones in total. The parameters of the model are adjusted on the basis of the data file for each of the variables. The use of fuzzy logic is a particular advantage in decision-making processes where description by algorithms is extremely difficult and criteria are multiplied. || El artículo trata sobre el uso de la lógica difusa como soporte para la evaluación del estado de un proyecto.

Entretanto, após um exame do estado da arte da confiança, ainda vislumbram-se algumas lacunas no conhecimento deste construto. Um destes hiatos é em relação às dimensões cognitiva, afetiva e comportamental da confiança, amplamente ignoradas pelos pesquisadores, que consideram na maioria das vezes, apenas a dimensão cognitiva. Todavia, a dimensão afetiva é uma importante já que se trata de relações interpessoais entre consumidores e organizações, e a dimensão comportamental perece ser importante qualquer que seja a natureza da troca. Este ensaio teórico se propõe a investigar as dimensões afetiva, cognitiva e comportamental da confiança no contexto business-to-consumer bem como explorar suas possíveis relações as intenções de lealdade. Ao longo deste ensaio teórico são lançadas proposições que representam novas trilhas de pesquisa e, ao final do estudo, são feitas algumas considerações.

    A nuclear power plant has a myriad of complex system and sub-systems that, working cooperatively, make the control of the whole plant. Nevertheless their operation be automatic most of the time, the integral understanding of their internal- logic can be away of the comprehension of even experienced operators because of the poor interpretability those controls offer. This difficulty does not happens only in nuclear power plants but in almost every a little more complex control system. Neuro-fuzzy models have been used for the last years in a attempt of suppress these difficulties because of their ability of modelling in linguist form even a system which behavior is extremely complex. This is a very intuitive human form of interpretation and neuro-fuzzy model are gathering increasing acceptance. Unfortunately, neuro-fuzzy models can grow up to become of hard interpretation because of the complexity of the systems under modelling. In general, that growing occurs in function of redundant rules or rules that cover a very little domain of the problem. This work presents an identification method for neuro-fuzzy models that not only allows models grow in function of the existent complexity but that beforehand they try to self-adapt to avoid the inclusion of new rules. This form of construction allowed to arrive to highly interpretative neuro-fuzzy models even of very complex systems. The use of this kind of technique in modelling the control of the pressurizer of a PWR nuclear power plant allowed verify its validity and how neuro-fuzzy models so built can be useful in understanding the automatic operation of a nuclear power plant.

    Full Text Available A seleção de fornecedores é considerada a atividade mais crítica da função de compras e impacta diretamente a qualidade dos produtos manufaturados e o desempenho do comprador. Na literatura acadêmica, dezenas de métodos de tomada de decisão multicritério vêm sendo explorados para apoiar a seleção de fornecedores. Dentre esses, o TOPSIS (Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution e o Fuzzy-TOPSIS (uma adaptação do primeiro se destacam por sua simplicidade de uso e pela capacidade de avaliar um número ilimitado de alternativas e critérios simultaneamente. Embora muitos autores sugiram a adoção do TOPSIS e do Fuzzy-TOPSIS para suportar a seleção de fornecedores, na literatura não são discutidas as reais vantagens de uso e as limitações destes métodos quando aplicados neste domínio de problema. Diante de tal lacuna, este estudo compara o TOPSIS e o Fuzzy-TOPSIS, em relação à complexidade computacional, à estrutura dos algoritmos e aos resultados fornecidos quando aplicados em um mesmo caso real de seleção de fornecedores. Os métodos foram implementados usando MATLAB(r e aplicados na seleção de fornecedores de uma empresa de cabos de transmissão. Os resultados mostram que o TOPSIS requer menor esforço para coleta de dados e processamento computacional. Em contrapartida, o Fuzzy-TOPSIS não sofre inversões no ranking e se mostra adequado para lidar com informações qualitativas e imprecisas. Os resultados deste estudo podem orientar pesquisadores e profissionais na escolha do método mais adequado para lidar com o problema de seleção de fornecedores em questão.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Desenvolver e comparar dois modelos matemáticos, um deles baseado em regressão logística e o outro em teoria de conjuntos fuzzy, para definir a indicação para a realização do exame cintilográfico a partir de resultados dos exames laboratoriais. MÉTODOS: Foram identificados 194 pacientes que tiveram cálcio e paratormônio séricos medidos a partir da base de registros de cintilografia de paratiróides realizadas em laboratório de diagnóstico de São Paulo, no período de janeiro de 2000 a dezembro de 2004. O modelo de regressão logística foi desenvolvido utilizando-se o software SPSS e o modelo fuzzy, o Matlab. A performance dos modelos foi comparada utilizando-se curvas ROC. RESULTADOS: Os modelos apresentaram diferenças estatisticamente significantes (p=0,026 nos seus desempenhos. A área sob a curva ROC do modelo de regressão logística foi de 0,862 (IC 95%: 0,811-0,913 e do modelo de lógica fuzzy foi 0,887 (IC 95%: 0,840-0,933. Este último destacou-se como particularmente útil porque, ao contrário do modelo logístico, mostrou capacidade de utilizar informações de paratormônio em intervalo em que os valores de cálcio mostraram-se pouco discriminantes. CONCLUSÕES: O modelo matemático baseado em teoria de conjuntos fuzzy pareceu ser mais adequado do que o baseado em regressão logística como método para decisão da realização de cintilografia das paratiróides.

    Full Text Available RESUMO O presente artigo tem como objetivo apresentar uma proposta de um modelo de formação comportamental para auditores contábeis independentes. Deste modo, inicialmente, discorre-se sobre os aspectos que devem ser considerados pelo profissional responsável pela gestão das pessoas nas organizações que prestam serviços de auditoria contábil independente, e do perfil destas pessoas requerido pelas empresas. Em seguida são identificadas as teorias que tratam da gestão de pessoas nas organizações, especificamente nos processos de recrutamento e seleção, capacitação e avaliação de desempenho. As empresas buscam profissionais com talentos e, principalmente, que saibam manter o equilíbrio entre a razão e a emoção no ambiente de trabalho. Na literatura que versa sobre a profissão do auditor contábil, é dada muita ênfase aos aspectos técnicos, tratando superficialmente ou renegando os aspectos comportamentais considerados importantes ao desempenho destes profissionais. Para confirmar essas afirmações e dar suporte ao delineamento do modelo, é realizada uma pesquisa de campo com os responsáveis pela gestão de pessoas em quatro empresas internacionais de auditoria contábil independente, que fazem parte das big five, e em uma empresa nacional. Assim, para o delineamento do modelo de formação, a ênfase desta pesquisa recai sobre os aspectos de liderança, comunicação, motivação, negociação, coaching, mentoring, administração de conflitos, trabalho em equipe, técnica de entrevista, análise transacional e de programação neurolingüística, que podem ser utilizados para o desenvolvimento de auditores contábeis independentes, de forma que possam melhorar suas condições de competitividade e empregabilidade. Portanto, são incorporados esses conceitos como ponto de partida para o delineamento de um modelo de formação comportamental de auditores contábeis independentes.

    Full Text Available En el contexto de toma de decisiones multicriterio y bajo ciertas circunstancias, puede ocurrir que no se pueda expresar una cierta valoración mediante una única etiqueta lingüística, ya que puede haber duda en esa valoración. En este trabajo, presentamos un modelo de consenso para problemas de toma de decisiones en grupo con relaciones de preferencia intervalares lingüísticas. Este modelo está basado en dos criterios de consenso, una medida de consenso y una de proximidad, y en el concepto de coincidencia entre preferencias. Calcularemos ambos criterios en los tres niveles de representación de una relación de preferencia y diseñaremos un mecanismo de realimentación automático para guiar a los expertos en el proceso para alcanzar el consenso. || In some circumstances a decision maker, expert, in a group decision making problem cannot express his/her preferences with a unique linguistic fuzzy preference because he/she is dubious into some preferences. In this paper, we present a consensus model for group decision making problems with interval fuzzy preference relations. This model is based on two consensus criteria, a consensus measure and a proximity measure, and on the concept of co- incidence among preferences. We compute both consensus criteria in the three representation levels of a preference relation and design an automatic feedback mechanism to guide experts in the consensus reaching process.

    Este artigo tem como objetivo abordar a flexibilidade comportamental que é determinada pela capacidade de adaptação do indivíduo aos diversos perfis comportamentais que compõem o ambiente organizacional no qual ele está inserido, a qual é atribuída ao secretário executivo como uma habilidade profissional desejável devido à gama de pessoas com a qual ele se relaciona diariamente. Para isso foi realizada uma pesquisa bibliográfica que possibilitou a discussão das idéias de autores especializados na temática, e uma pesquisa exploratória que utilizou da entrevista pessoal aplicada a quatro secretários, através da qual foi possível a descrição das situações reais cotidianas dos secretários executivos participantes. Os resultados mostraram que esse profissional valoriza a realização profissional como motivação e sentido do trabalho e que, diante dos diferentes tipos comportamentais dos indivíduos, a persistência em manter o clima organizacional agradável através da capacidade de flexibilização comportamental é essencial. Ainda, grande importância foi dada ao diálogo, através do qual todos podem expor suas queixas, elogios e tudo o que julgarem necessário a fim de identificar as ameaças e oportunidades, bem como maximizar os pontos positivos existentes, para que exista sempre harmonia no ambiente de trabalho.

Ten Girolando multiparous cows in intermediate stage of lactation were used, with average weight of 450 kg and average daily production of 9 liters of milk. The study was conducted during 2013 winter season.The objective of this study was to evaluate the conditions of heat stress, through collection and analysis of these data: the dry and wet bulb temperature, black globe temperature, airrelative humidity, and then calculating the black globe humidity index (BGHI. All data were collected under shade and sun. Physiological and behavioral parameters of lactating cows were also assessed. The data relating to environmental, behavioral and physiological factors were collected every sixty minutes in the period between milking, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, in the shade and in the sun. From the analysis of the data and the averages of all parameters, we have come to the results. It was noticed that the environmental conditions on the shade locations indicated values of thermal comfort in almost all times that were evaluated, but the results obtained for the unshaded environment presented themselves very high at all times, indicating a state of alert and emergency, confirming the thermal stress for lactating cows. Vast majority of physiological and behavioral parameters evaluated was not compatible with the ones from the literature. Even though in the winter season, the climate of the city Ituverava proves unfavorable for lactating cows, indicating high values of BGHI and consequently causing heat stress in the animals.

    Collimated streams of particles produced in high energy physics experiments are organized using clustering algorithms to form jets. To construct jets, the experimental collaborations based at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) primarily use agglomerative hierarchical clustering schemes known as sequential recombination. We propose a new class of algorithms for clustering jets that use infrared and collinear safe mixture models. These new algorithms, known as fuzzy jets, are clustered using maximum likelihood techniques and can dynamically determine various properties of jets like their size. We show that the fuzzy jet size adds additional information to conventional jet tagging variables in boosted topologies. Furthermore, we study the impact of pileup and show that with some slight modifications to the algorithm, fuzzy jets can be stable up to high pileup interaction multiplicities.

    Connectivity has an important role in neural networks, computer network, and clustering. In the design of a network, it is important to analyze connections by the levels. The structural properties of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs provide a tool that allows for the solution of operations research problems. In this paper, we introduce various types of intuitionistic fuzzy bridges, intuitionistic fuzzy cut vertices, intuitionistic fuzzy cycles, and intuitionistic fuzzy trees in intuitionistic fuzzy graphs and investigate some of their interesting properties. Most of these various types are defined in terms of levels. We also describe comparison of these types. PMID:24701155

    In this paper the designs of a fuzzy controller for the VASPS (Vertical Annular Separation and Pumping System) liquid level and separation pressure control are presented, as well as a simulation of its work to evaluate the performance of the controller designed. The VASPS is a two-phase subsea separation and pumping system, which is made up of a separation vessel, where the mixture (liquid and gas) enters and suffers the separation process through three levels, the expansion chamber, the helix and the pool. The liquid inside the pool is taken to the platform using a pump that with a choke control the pool liquid level. The pool liquid level control is necessary because if the level exceeds the maximum value allowed, the liquid can invade the space occupied by the helix and hinder the separation process. An the other hand if the level is below the minimum allowed the pump can be damaged. The separation pressure control is important for operational security and efficiency issues, because when we keep the separation pressure near an optimum value we are maximizing its efficiency. With the controller and the simulator, many simulations of the work of system were made to get results that could be used to evaluate if the designed controller solved the problem and if its performance were satisfactory. After, a PID control system was designed to be used as comparison with the results obtained with the fuzzy controller, since the PID is widely used in the industrial environment. (author)

    A methodology for identifying and classifying voltage disturbances (harmonics, voltage sag, etc.) using fuzzy ARTMAP neural networks is presented. It is an ART (adaptive resonance theory) architecture family neural network that presents the stability and plasticity properties, which are fundamental requests for developing a reliable electrical systems with reduced processing time. Stability means a guarantee of good solutions; plasticity allows realize the training without restart the system every time there are new patterns to be stored in a weight matrix of the neural network. The training is realized from the wave forms provided by the acquisition data system, using the wavelets theory to generate the coefficients that constitute the input patterns of the neural network. Results from simulations show that the accuracy index is nearly 100%. (author)

    Mappings between fuzzy cubes are discussed. This level of abstraction provides a surprising and fruitful alternative to the propositional and predicate-calculas reasoning techniques used in expert systems. It allows one to reason with sets instead of propositions. Discussed here are fuzzy and neural function estimators, neural vs. fuzzy representation of structured knowledge, fuzzy vector-matrix multiplication, and fuzzy associative memory (FAM) system architecture.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem por objetivo abordar os aspectos psicossociais que mediam a qualidade da relação médico-paciente com base em uma concepção cognitivo-comportamental. Para tanto, é feita uma breve revisão sobre os aspectos da relação de ajuda. Ressalta-se a importância da qualidade da relação estabelecida, destacando a participação de ambos na tomada de decisão e a relação colaborativa, empática e bidirecional. Assim, as crenças, necessidades específicas e características pessoais ganham lugar de destaque. Além disso, a organização empregadora, a equipe de saúde, o meio social e os familiares vão interferir na dinâmica da relação. O suporte social e a comunicação terapêutica são outros componentes da multifatorialidade desse processo. A relação positiva permite o aparecimento de fatores de predisposição da doença, facilita o treino de habilidades assertivas de enfrentamento, a reestruturação cognitiva e a reeducação emocional, resultando na construção de respostas adaptativas a situações adversas.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho teve como objetivo mostrar a relação entre tiques e habilidades sociais na condução de um caso clínico comportamental. Patrícia (nome fictício, de 15 anos, foi trazida por sua mãe com a queixa de apresentar tiques e timidez excessiva. Entretanto os supostos tiques não apareceram durante as sessões e foi analisado que a atenção fornecida pela mãe era o que controlava alguns de seus comportamentos. Foram realizados treino de assertividade, simulações de situações sociais, entre outras intervenções. Dessa forma os “tiques” não foram foco das intervenções e após 30 sessões foram observados vários progressos da cliente, tendo recebido alta da terapeuta. O caso mostra a importância da realização de uma análise funcional do comportamento, que fez com que a condução do caso se voltasse para o refinamento das habilidades sociais da filha e não do que foi chamado de tique pela mãe.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho tem como objetivo realizar o mapeamento da fragilidade ambiental à ocorrência de ravinas no Parque Nacional da Serra da Canastra, por meio de um modelo espacial baseado em lógica fuzzy, desenvolvido para SIG, que combina mapas das seguintes variáveis geoambientais: índice de vegetação, densidade de lineamentos estruturais, densidade de vias de circulação e declividade do terreno. Este modelo utiliza parâmetros do teste estatístico Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS, extraídos a partir da avaliação do grau de aderência entre a distribuição dos valores das variáveis ambientais e a distribuição espacial real das ravinas observadas no parque. Os pesos são utilizados em um processo de álgebra de mapas, baseado na soma ponderada das variáveis geoambientais convertidas em escala fuzzy. O mapa de fragilidade ambiental produzido é representado segundo o método de classificação contínua fuzzy, indicando o grau de afinidade de cada pixel à ocorrência de ravinas. Os resultados mostraram que a ordem de importância das variáveis na ocorrência de ravinas, nesta Unidade de Conservação, é a seguinte: (1 densidade de lineamentos estruturais; (2 índice de vegetação; (3 densidade de estradas; (4 declividades. As áreas de maior fragilidade concentram-se em bacias localizadas a noroeste e na porção central do Chapadão da Babilônia. Os graus menores de fragilidade são observados, sobretudo, no Chapadão da Canastra e em pontos a sudeste do Chapadão da Babilônia, em bacias que apresentam densidades de ravinas abaixo da média do parque. ABSTRACT The aim of this work was to map environmental fragility of Serra da Canastra National Park, located in Southwest region of Minas Gerais state, Brazil, using ravine sites identified on high spatial resolution images, as terrain true controls points. The methodology used for mapping was based on fuzzy logic model and GIS techniques. The model combines four environmental variables

    Full Text Available RESUMEN El análisis de masas y tumores en mamografía es un problema difícil porque los signos del cáncer pueden ser mínimos o estar superpuestos en el tejido. Las técnicas de procesamiento de imágenes pueden mejorar el diagnóstico reduciendo los costos. La detección de masas es un reto debido al bajo contraste y la pobre definición de los bordes. Una solución al problema es representar una masa mediante conjuntos difusos. En este trabajo se estudia la propuesta de Guliato et al. que plantean dos métodos de segmentación difusos. El primero determina el borde de una masa por crecimiento por regiones clásico, luego de un preprocesamiento difuso de la región de interés. El segundo es un método de crecimiento por regiones difuso. Estos métodos necesitan un píxel semilla y un umbral. En este trabajo se propone una selección automática del píxel semilla mediante la selección de píxeles muy correlacionados según la transformada wavelet de la imagen. Como medida de evaluación en la segmentación, se emplea la medida de ambigüedad definida por los autores citados. Con la selección de semilla propuesta se obtienen mejores resultados en la segmentación, respecto al uso de una semilla aleatoria. ABSTRACT The analysis of masses and tumors in mammography is difficult because developing signs of cancer may be minimal or masked by superimposed tissues. Image analysis techniques have the potential to improve the diagnostic accuracy of mammography, and reduce health-care costs. Detection of breast masses is a challenging problem due to low contrast and poor definition of their boundaries. An alternative to address this problem is to represent tumor or mass regions by fuzzy sets. In this paper, two methods of fuzzy segmentation proposed by Guliato et al. are studied. The first method determines the boundary of a mass by classic region growing after a fuzzy preprocessing step. The second method is a fuzzy region-growing method. This

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Recent factor-analytic studies of obsessive-compulsive disorder identified consistent symptom dimensions. This study was designed in order to observe which obsessive compulsive symptom dimensions could be changed by adding two individual sessions of motivational interviewing and thought mapping of cognitive-behavioral group therapy using a randomized clinical trial. METHOD: Forty outpatients with a primary diagnosis of obsessive-compulsive disorder were randomly assigned to receive cognitive-behavioral group therapy (control group or motivational interviewing+thought mapping plus cognitive-behavioral group therapy. To evaluate changes in symptomdimensions, the Dimensional Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale was administered at baseline and after treatment. RESULTS: At post-treatment, there were statistically significant differences between cognitive-behavioral group therapy and motivational interviewing+thought mapping+cognitivebehavioral group therapy groups in the mean total Dimensional Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale score, and in the contamination and aggression dimension score. Hoarding showed a statistical trend towards improvement. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that adding motivational interviewing+thought mapping to cognitive-behavioral group therapy can facilitate changes and bring about a decrease in the scores in different obsessive-compulsive disorder symptom dimensions, as measured by the Dimensional Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale. Nonetheless, additional trials are needed to confirm these results.OBJETIVO: Recentes estudos utilizando análise fatorial no transtorno obsessivocompulsivo identificaram dimensões consistentes dos sintomas.

    Genetic Algorithms (GAs) are biologically motivated adaptive systems which have been used, with good results, in function optimization. However, traditional GAs rapidly push an artificial population toward convergence. That is, all individuals in the population soon become nearly identical. Niching Methods allow genetic algorithms to maintain a population of diverse individuals. GAs that incorporate these methods are capable of locating multiple, optimal solutions within a single population. The purpose of this study is to introduce a new niching technique based on the fuzzy clustering method FCM, bearing in mind its eventual application in nuclear reactor related problems, specially the nuclear reactor core reload one, which has multiple solutions. tests are performed using widely known test functions and their results show that the new method is quite promising, specially to a future application in real world problems like the nuclear reactor core reload.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Howard, Ayanna

    2005-01-01

    The Fuzzy Logic Engine is a software package that enables users to embed fuzzy-logic modules into their application programs. Fuzzy logic is useful as a means of formulating human expert knowledge and translating it into software to solve problems. Fuzzy logic provides flexibility for modeling relationships between input and output information and is distinguished by its robustness with respect to noise and variations in system parameters. In addition, linguistic fuzzy sets and conditional statements allow systems to make decisions based on imprecise and incomplete information. The user of the Fuzzy Logic Engine need not be an expert in fuzzy logic: it suffices to have a basic understanding of how linguistic rules can be applied to the user's problem. The Fuzzy Logic Engine is divided into two modules: (1) a graphical-interface software tool for creating linguistic fuzzy sets and conditional statements and (2) a fuzzy-logic software library for embedding fuzzy processing capability into current application programs. The graphical- interface tool was developed using the Tcl/Tk programming language. The fuzzy-logic software library was written in the C programming language.

    This book presents a mathematically-based introduction into the fascinating topic of Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic and might be used as textbook at both undergraduate and graduate levels and also as reference guide for mathematician, scientists or engineers who would like to get an insight into Fuzzy Logic.   Fuzzy Sets have been introduced by Lotfi Zadeh in 1965 and since then, they have been used in many applications. As a consequence, there is a vast literature on the practical applications of fuzzy sets, while theory has a more modest coverage. The main purpose of the present book is to reduce this gap by providing a theoretical introduction into Fuzzy Sets based on Mathematical Analysis and Approximation Theory. Well-known applications, as for example fuzzy control, are also discussed in this book and placed on new ground, a theoretical foundation. Moreover, a few advanced chapters and several new results are included. These comprise, among others, a new systematic and constructive approach for fuzzy infer...

    Full Text Available Fuzzy sets are the special form of objects of nonnumeric nature. Therefore, in the processing of the sample, the elements of which are fuzzy sets, a variety of methods for the analysis of statistical data of any nature can be used - the calculation of the average, non-parametric density estimators, construction of diagnostic rules, etc. We have told about the development of our work on the theory of fuzziness (1975 - 2015. In the first of our work on fuzzy sets (1975, the theory of random sets is regarded as a generalization of the theory of fuzzy sets. In non-fiction series "Mathematics. Cybernetics" (publishing house "Knowledge" in 1980 the first book by a Soviet author fuzzy sets is published - our brochure "Optimization problems and fuzzy variables". This book is essentially a "squeeze" our research of 70-ies, ie, the research on the theory of stability and in particular on the statistics of objects of non-numeric nature, with a bias in the methodology. The book includes the main results of the fuzzy theory and its note to the random set theory, as well as new results (first publication! of statistics of fuzzy sets. On the basis of further experience, you can expect that the theory of fuzzy sets will be more actively applied in organizational and economic modeling of industry management processes. We discuss the concept of the average value of a fuzzy set. We have considered a number of statements of problems of testing statistical hypotheses on fuzzy sets. We have also proposed and justified some algorithms for restore relationships between fuzzy variables; we have given the representation of various variants of fuzzy cluster analysis of data and variables and described some methods of collection and description of fuzzy data

    There are several models of biomass gasifier. The one used in this study was the concurrent model, in which fuel is fed through the top and air feed occurs in descending flow through combustion and reduction zones, producing low-tar gas. Nevertheless, total tar burning must be ensured in order to produce a gas, suitable for several applications. This study aimed at developing a fuzzy-based algorithm to control the active power applied to a gasifier ventilation system motor, which can ensure adequate oxidation temperature for cracking tar that may be present in the gas produced. The input variables of the fuzzy controller were oxidation zone temperature and the variation rate of this temperature. The output variable was active power. The rule base was created using experimental data. The tests performed with this algorithm allowed observing that the oxidation temperature can be set to a value desired, which does not occur in gasification processes without ventilation system control.

    CERN Document Server

    B Gibilisco, Michael; E Albert, Karen; N Mordeson, John; J Wierman, Mark; D Clark, Terry

    2014-01-01

    This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the social choice literature and shows, by applying fuzzy sets, how the use of fuzzy preferences, rather than that of strict ones, may affect the social choice theorems. To do this, the book explores the presupposition of rationality within the fuzzy framework and shows that the two conditions for rationality, completeness and transitivity, do exist with fuzzy preferences. Specifically, this book examines: the conditions under which a maximal set exists; the Arrow’s theorem;  the Gibbard-Satterthwaite theorem; and the median voter theorem.  After showing that a non-empty maximal set does exists for fuzzy preference relations, this book goes on to demonstrating the existence of a fuzzy aggregation rule satisfying all five Arrowian conditions, including non-dictatorship. While the Gibbard-Satterthwaite theorem only considers individual fuzzy preferences, this work shows that both individuals and groups can choose alternatives to various degrees, resulting in a so...

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Song Yexin; Yin Di; Chen Mianyun

    2005-01-01

    A novel method for decision making with fuzzy probability assessments and fuzzy payoff is presented. The consistency of the fuzzy probability assessment is considered. A fuzzy aggregate algorithm is used to indicate the fuzzy expected payoff of alternatives. The level sets of each fuzzy expected payoff are then obtained by solving linear programming models. Based on a defuzzification function associated with the level sets of fuzzy number and a numerical integration formula (Newton-Cotes formula), an effective approach to rank the fuzzy expected payoff of alternatives is also developed to determine the best alternative. Finally, a numerical example is provided to illustrate the proposed method.

    Full Text Available Achados recentes das neurociências apresentam uma visão integrada do funcionamento humano que envolve a presença de relações entre os grandes sistemas orgânicos, entre estados fisiológicos e cognitivos e entre razão e emoção. Este artigo objetiva contrastar tais estudos a aspectos centrais do modelo interpretativo skinneriano, destacando o papel de relações entre processos respondentes e operantes para a compreensão da interdependência entre razão e emoção. Investiga-se a importância de respostas emocionais e do comportamento verbal para a expressão de respostas tidas como racionais e, de uma maneira geral, para a seleção do repertório comportamental, verbal e não-verbal. Ressalta-se que o atual movimento de superação de propostas dualistas de compreensão do ser humano pelas neurociências aproxima-se da perspectiva analítico-comportamental de investigação de respostas abertas e encobertas no contexto de relações indivíduo-ambiente.Recent findings of the neurosciences present an integrated view of the human functioning, one that encompasses the relationships among the great organic systems, between physiological and cognitive states and between reason and emotion. The aim of this paper is to contrast such studies with central aspects of the Skinnerian explanatory system, highlighting the role of relations between respondent and operant processes for an understanding of the interdependence between reason and emotion. The importance of emotional responses and verbal behavior for rational responding and, moreover, for the selection of verbal and non-verbal behavioral repertoire, is discussed. It is argued that the current movement in the neurosciences towards overcoming dualistic views of the human being is compatible with the behavior-analytic approach to overt and covert responses in the context of individual-environment relations.

    Fuzzy spaces like the fuzzy sphere or the fuzzy torus have received remarkable attention, since they appeared as objects in string theory. Although there are higher dimensional examples, the most known and most studied fuzzy spaces are realized as matrix algebras defined by three Hermitian matrices, which may be seen as fuzzy membrane or fuzzy surface. We give a mapping between directed graphs and matrix algebras defined by three Hermitian matrices and show that the matrix algebras of known two-dimensional fuzzy spaces are associated with unbranched graphs. By including branchings into the graphs we find matrix algebras that represent fuzzy spaces associated with surfaces having genus 2 and higher.

    2006-01-01

    Based on fuzzy set theory, a fuzzy trust model is established by using membership function to describe the fuzziness of trust. The trust vectors of subjective trust are obtained based on a mathematical model of fuzzy synthetic evaluation. Considering the complicated and changeable relationships between various subjects, the multi-level mathematical model of fuzzy synthetic evaluation is introduced. An example of a two-level fuzzy synthetic evaluation model confirms the feasibility of the multi-level fuzzy synthesis evaluation model. The proposed fuzzy model for trust evaluation may provide a promising method for research of trust model in open networks.

    The typical BDI (belief desire intention) model of agent is not efficiently computable and the strict logic expression is not easily applicable to the AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle) domain with uncertainties. In this paper, an AUV fuzzy neural BDI model is proposed. The model is a fuzzy neural network composed of five layers: input ( beliefs and desires) , fuzzification, commitment, fuzzy intention, and defuzzification layer. In the model, the fuzzy commitment rules and neural network are combined to form intentions from beliefs and desires. The model is demonstrated by solving PEG (pursuit-evasion game), and the simulation result is satisfactory.

    At present, there has been an increasing interest in neuron-fuzzy systems, the combinations of artificial neural networks with fuzzy logic. In this paper, a definition of fuzzy finite state automata (FFA) is introduced and fuzzy knowledge equivalence representations between neural networks, fuzzy systems and models of automata are discussed. Once the network has been trained, we develop a method to extract a representation of the FFA encoded in the recurrent neural network that recognizes the training rules.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available In the paper we define three kinds of entropy of a fuzzy dynamical system using different entropies of fuzzy partitions. It is shown that different definitions of the entropy of fuzzy partitions lead to different notions of entropies of fuzzy dynamical systems. The relationships between these entropies are studied and connections with the classical case are mentioned as well. Finally, an analogy of the Kolmogorov–Sinai Theorem on generators is proved for fuzzy dynamical systems.

    Statistical data are not always precise numbers, or vectors, or categories. Real data are frequently what is called fuzzy. Examples where this fuzziness is obvious are quality of life data, environmental, biological, medical, sociological and economics data. Also the results of measurements can be best described by using fuzzy numbers and fuzzy vectors respectively. Statistical analysis methods have to be adapted for the analysis of fuzzy data. In this book, the foundations of the description of fuzzy data are explained, including methods on how to obtain the characterizing function of fuzzy m

    We introduce the fuzzy supersphere as sequence of finite-dimensional, noncommutative $Z_{2}$-graded algebras tending in a suitable limit to a dense subalgebra of the $Z_{2}$-graded algebra of ${\\cal H}^{\\infty}$-functions on the $(2| 2)$-dimensional supersphere. Noncommutative analogues of the body map (to the (fuzzy) sphere) and the super-deRham complex are introduced. In particular we reproduce the equality of the super-deRham cohomology of the supersphere and the ordinary deRham cohomology of its body on the "fuzzy level".

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to analyze a problem of time series disaggregation in presence of broad information lack. In this framework it is not possible to follow standard methodologies, like those stemming from the Chow and Lin algorithm and based on probabilistic assumptions. In general terms, when information sets are limited, instead of referring to probabilistic measures it could be more appropriate to adopt an uncertainty measure satisfying only some general properties, like the fuzzy one. After a synthetic survey about fuzzy aggregation operators, we introduce a fuzzy disaggregation technique, based on Choquet capacity theory and characterized by De Finetti coherence.

    Full Text Available This article proposes a novel weak fuzzy solution for the fuzzy linear system. As a matter of fact, we define the right-hand side column of the fuzzy linear system as a piecewise fuzzy function to overcome the related shortcoming, which exists in the previous findings. The strong point of this proposal is that the weak fuzzy solution is always a fuzzy number vector. Two complex and non-complex linear systems under uncertainty are tested to validate the effectiveness and correctness of the presented method.

    Full Text Available The uncertain nonlinear systems can be modeled with fuzzy equations by incorporating the fuzzy set theory. In this paper, the fuzzy equations are applied as the models for the uncertain nonlinear systems. The nonlinear modeling process is to find the coefficients of the fuzzy equations. We use the neural networks to approximate the coefficients of the fuzzy equations. The approximation theory for crisp models is extended into the fuzzy equation model. The upper bounds of the modeling errors are estimated. Numerical experiments along with comparisons demonstrate the excellent behavior of the proposed method.

When operating with fuzzy numbers, the results of our calculations strongly depend on the shape of the membership functions of these numbers.

Moreover, fuzzy numbers with a simpler shape of membership functions often have more intuitive and more natural interpretations. But not only must we apply the concept and the use of fuzzy sets, and its particular case of fuzzy number, but also the new and interesting mathematical construct designed by Fuzzy Complex Numbers, which is much more than a correlate of Complex Numbers in Mathematical Analysis. The selected perspective attempts here that of advancing through axiomatic descriptions.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Saad, Emad

    This paper extends fuzzy logic programs [12, 24] to allow the explicit representation of classical negation as well as non-monotonic negation, by introducing the notion of extended fuzzy logic programs. We present the fuzzy answer set semantics for the extended fuzzy logic programs, which is based on the classical answer set semantics of classical extended logic programs [7]. We show that the proposed semantics is a natural extension to the classical answer set semantics of classical extended logic programs [7]. Furthermore, we define fixpoint semantics for extended fuzzy logic programs with and without non-monotonic negation, and study their relationship to the fuzzy answer set semantics. In addition, we show that the fuzzy answer set semantics is reduced to the stable fuzzy model semantics for normal fuzzy logic programs introduced in [42]. The importance of that is computational methods developed for normal fuzzy logic programs can be applied to the extended fuzzy logic programs. Moreover, we show that extended fuzzy logic programs can be intuitively used for representing and reasoning about actions in fuzzy environment.

    2005-01-01

    This paper investigates how the phenomenon of fuzzy language, such as `many' in `Mary has many friends', can be explained by Relevance Theory. It is concluded that fuzzy language use conforms with optimal relevance in that it can achieve the greatest positive effect with the least processing effort. It is the communicators themselves who decide whether or not optimal relevance is achieved, rather than the language form (fuzzy or non-fuzzy) used. People can skillfully adjust the deployment of different language forms or choose appropriate interpretations to suit different situations and communication needs. However, there are two challenges to RT: a. to extend its theory from individual relevance to group relevance; b. to embrace cultural considerations (because when relevance principles and cultural protocols are in conflict, the latter tends to prevail).

    1992-01-01

    Fuzzy data such as marks, scores, verbal evaluations, imprecise observations, experts' opinions and grey tone pictures, are quite common. In Fuzzy Data Analysis the authors collect their recent results providing the reader with ideas, approaches and methods for processing such data when looking for sub-structures in knowledge bases for an evaluation of functional relationship, e.g. in order to specify diagnostic or control systems. The modelling presented uses ideas from fuzzy set theory and the suggested methods solve problems usually tackled by data analysis if the data are real numbers. Fuzzy Data Analysis is self-contained and is addressed to mathematicians oriented towards applications and to practitioners in any field of application who have some background in mathematics and statistics.

    The concept of “abacus logic” has recently been developed by the author (Malhas, n.d.). In this paper the relation of abacus logic to the concept of fuzziness is explored. It is shown that if a certain “regularity” condition is met, concepts from fuzzy set theory arise naturally within abacus logics. In particular it is shown that every abacus logic then has a “pre-Zadeh orthocomplementation”. It is also shown that it is then possible to associate a fuzzy set with every proposition of abacus logic and that the collection of all such sets satisfies natural conditions expected in systems of fuzzy logic. Finally, the relevance to quantum mechanics is discussed.

    In this paper, we present a new method to predict the Taiwan Stock Exchange Capitalization Weighted Stock Index (TAIEX) based on fuzzy-trend logical relationship groups (FTLRGs). The proposed method divides fuzzy logical relationships into FTLRGs based on the trend of adjacent fuzzy sets appearing in the antecedents of fuzzy logical relationships. First, we apply an automatic clustering algorithm to cluster the historical data into intervals of different lengths. Then, we define fuzzy sets based on these intervals of different lengths. Then, the historical data are fuzzified into fuzzy sets to derive fuzzy logical relationships. Then, we divide the fuzzy logical relationships into FTLRGs for forecasting the TAIEX. Moreover, we also apply the proposed method to forecast the enrollments and the inventory demand, respectively. The experimental results show that the proposed method gets higher average forecasting accuracy rates than the existing methods.

    The work developed a methodology fuzzy and simulated its use in control of a hybrid system of electric power generation, using solar-photovoltaic and wind energy. Using this control system, we get the point of maximum energy generation and transfer all the energy generated from alternative sources, solar-photovoltaic and wind energy to charge and / or batteries. The model uses three input variables, which are: wind (wind speed), sun (solar radiation) and batteries (charge the battery bank). With these variables, the fuzzy system will play, according to the rules to be described, what is the source of power supply system, which will have priority and how the batteries are loaded. For the simulations regarding the use of fuzzy theory to control, we used the scientific computing environment MATLAB. In this environment have been analyzed and simulated all mathematical modeling, rules and other variables described in the fuzzy system. This model can be applied to implement a control system of hybrid power generation, providing the best use of renewable energy, solar and wind, so that we can extract the maximum possible energy of these alternative sources without compromising the environment.

It also presents a procedure to construct a fuzzy subrings (fuzzy ideals from any given ascending chain of subring ideal. We prove that the lattice of fuzzy congruence of group G (respectively ring R is isomorphic to the lattice of fuzzy normal subgroup of G (respectively fuzzy ideals of R.In Yuan Boond Wu wangrning investigated the relationship between the fuzzy ideals and the fuzzy congruences on a distributive lattice and obtained that the lattice of fuzzy ideals is isomorphic to the lattice of fuzzy congruences on a generalized Boolean algebra. Fuzzy group theory can be used to describe, symmetries and permutation in nature and mathematics. The fuzzy group is one of the oldest branches of abstract algebra. For example group can be used is classify to all of the forms chemical crystal can take. Group can be used to count the number of non-equivalent objects and permutation or symmetries. For example, the number of different is switching functions of n, variable when permutation of the input are allowed. Beside crystallography and combinatory group have application of quantum mechanics.

    Scherer, Rafał

    2012-01-01

    Fuzzy classifiers are important tools in exploratory data analysis, which is a vital set of methods used in various engineering, scientific and business applications. Fuzzy classifiers use fuzzy rules and do not require assumptions common to statistical classification. Rough set theory is useful when data sets are incomplete. It defines a formal approximation of crisp sets by providing the lower and the upper approximation of the original set. Systems based on rough sets have natural ability to work on such data and incomplete vectors do not have to be preprocessed before classification. To achieve better performance than existing machine learning systems, fuzzy classifiers and rough sets can be combined in ensembles. Such ensembles consist of a finite set of learning models, usually weak learners. The present book discusses the three aforementioned fields – fuzzy systems, rough sets and ensemble techniques. As the trained ensemble should represent a single hypothesis, a lot of attention is placed o...

  2. Possibilistic Exponential Fuzzy Clustering

    2013-01-01

    Generally,abnormal points (noise and outliers) cause cluster analysis to produce low accuracy especially in fuzzy clustering.These data not only stay in clusters but also deviate the centroids from their true positions.Traditional fuzzy clustering like Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) always assigns data to all clusters which is not reasonable in some circumstances.By reformulating objective function in exponential equation,the algorithm aggressively selects data into the clusters.However noisy data and outliers cannot be properly handled by clustering process therefore they are forced to be included in a cluster because of a general probabilistic constraint that the sum of the membership degrees across all clusters is one.In order to improve this weakness,possibilistic approach relaxes this condition to improve membership assignment.Nevertheless,possibilistic clustering algorithms generally suffer from coincident clusters because their membership equations ignore the distance to other clusters.Although there are some possibilistic clustering approaches that do not generate coincident clusters,most of them require the right combination of multiple parameters for the algorithms to work.In this paper,we theoretically study Possibilistic Exponential Fuzzy Clustering (PXFCM) that integrates possibilistic approach with exponential fuzzy clustering.PXFCM has only one parameter and not only partitions the data but also filters noisy data or detects them as outliers.The comprehensive experiments show that PXFCM produces high accuracy in both clustering results and outlier detection without generating coincident problems.

    Fuzzy Multiple Criteria Decision Making plays an important role in solving problems in decision making under fuzzy environment. Among the popular methods used is the fuzzy TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) where the solution is based on the shortest distance from its positive ideal solution and the farthest distance from its negative ideal solution. The fuzzy TOPSIS method was first introduced by Chen (2000). At present, there are several variants of fuzzy TOPSIS methods and each of them claimed to have its own advantages. In this paper, a comparative analysis is made between the classical fuzzy TOPSIS method proposed by Chen in 2000 and the simplified fuzzy TOPSIS proposed by Sodhi in 2012. The purpose of this study is to show the similarities and the differences between these two methods and also elaborate on their strengths and limitations as well. A comparison is also made by providing numerical examples of both methods.

    1992-01-01

    In this paper, we describe a procedure to integrate techniques for the adaptation of membership functions in a linguistic variable based fuzzy control environment by using neural network learning principles. This is an extension to our work. We solve this problem by defining a fuzzy error that is propagated back through the architecture of our fuzzy controller. According to this fuzzy error and the strength of its antecedent each fuzzy rule determines its amount of error. Depending on the current state of the controlled system and the control action derived from the conclusion, each rule tunes the membership functions of its antecedent and its conclusion. By this we get an unsupervised learning technique that enables a fuzzy controller to adapt to a control task by knowing just about the global state and the fuzzy error.

    Since fuzzy controllers are nonlinear, it is more difficult to set the controller gains compared to proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers. This research paper proposes a design procedure and a tuning procedure that carries tuning rules from the PID domain over to fuzzy single......-loop controllers. The idea is to start with a tuned, conventional PID controller, replace it with an equivalent linear fuzzy controller, make the fuzzy controller nonlinear, and eventually fine-tune the nonlinear fuzzy controller. This is relevant whenever a PID controller is possible or already implemented....

  10. Fuzzy Multiresolution Neural Networks

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ying, Li; Qigang, Shang; Na, Lei

    A fuzzy multi-resolution neural network (FMRANN) based on particle swarm algorithm is proposed to approximate arbitrary nonlinear function. The active function of the FMRANN consists of not only the wavelet functions, but also the scaling functions, whose translation parameters and dilation parameters are adjustable. A set of fuzzy rules are involved in the FMRANN. Each rule either corresponding to a subset consists of scaling functions, or corresponding to a sub-wavelet neural network consists of wavelets with same dilation parameters. Incorporating the time-frequency localization and multi-resolution properties of wavelets with the ability of self-learning of fuzzy neural network, the approximation ability of FMRANN can be remarkable improved. A particle swarm algorithm is adopted to learn the translation and dilation parameters of the wavelets and adjusting the shape of membership functions. Simulation examples are presented to validate the effectiveness of FMRANN.

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available Such as other statistical problems, we may confront with uncertain and fuzzy concepts in quality control. One particular case in process capability analysis is a situation in which specification limits are two fuzzy sets. In such a uncertain and vague environment, the produced product is not qualified with a two-valued Boolean view, but to some degree depending on the decision-maker strictness and the quality level of the produced product. This matter can be cause to a rational decision-making on the quality of the production line. First, a comprehensive approach is presented in this paper for modeling the fuzzy quality concept. Then, motivations and advantages of applying this flexible approach instead of using classical quality are mentioned.

    Full Text Available CONTEXTO: A reabilitação neuropsicológica é um dos componentes do tratamento de clientes* com lesões cerebrais e/ou distúrbios neurológicos e neuropsiquiátricos. Os programas de reabilitação podem se beneficiar do emprego de procedimentos** comportamentais, principalmente porque a ciência da análise do comportamento dispõe de ferramentas valiosas para a modificação do comportamento e o auxílio nos processos de aprendizagem. OBJETIVOS: Este artigo objetiva discursar sobre a interação entre as áreas de reabilitação neuropsicológica e análise do comportamento. MÉTODOS: Inicia-se esta empreitada apresentando o que é a reabilitação neuropsicológica, passando pela clarificação do emprego de procedimentos comportamentais tanto na avaliação como na reabilitação neuropsicológicas e quais os cuidados necessários na preparação de um programa. RESULTADOS: Objetiva-se, assim, despertar o interesse pelo desenvolvimento de novos estudos neste vasto campo e chamar a atenção dos neuropsicólogos para a importância da aquisição de conhecimentos básicos em análise do comportamento. CONCLUSÃO: Isso parece ser conseqüência não da escassez de estudos sobre o emprego de procedimentos comportamentais em programas de reabilitação neuropsicológica, mas sim da falta de percepção, por parte dos profissionais de reabilitação, de que muitos procedimentos por eles empregados são comportamentais. Ou pode ainda refletir um desconhecimento sobre a existência da vertente da neuropsicologia comportamental, ou ainda ser apenas reflexo dos preconceitos de que a análise do comportamento é alvo.BACKGROUND: Neuropsychological rehabilitation is one component in treatment of clients with cerebral lesions and/or neurological and neuropsychiatric disturbances.

    A new optimal reactive power flow (ORPF) method is proposed which considers the inclusion of unified powerflow controllers (UPFC). The modelling and inclusion of UPFC in the solution of power flow equations is presented. The ORPF problem is formulated as a fuzzy optimisation problem considering the objectives of minimising system transmission loss and obtaining the best voltage profile. The fuzzy formulation of the ORPF problem is solved using an EP algorithm. The proposed method is applied on the 6-bus and 57-bus IEEE test systems and on a 191-bus Indian electric power system. The results demonstrate the applicability of the method. (author)

    Alexanian, G G; Immirzi, G; Ydri, B

    2001-01-01

    Regularization of quantum field theories (QFT's) can be achieved by quantizing the underlying manifold (spacetime or spatial slice) thereby replacing it by a non-commutative matrix model or a ``fuzzy manifold''. Such discretization by quantization is remarkably successful in preserving symmetries and topological features, and altogether overcoming the fermion-doubling problem. In this paper, we report on our work on the ``fuzzification'' of the four-dimensional CP2 and its QFT's. CP2 is not spin, but spin${}_c$. Its Dirac operator has many unique features. They are explained and their fuzzy versions are described.

    Dialectica categories are a very versatile categorical model of linear logic. These have been used to model many seemingly different things (e.g., Petri nets and Lambek's calculus). In this note, we expand our previous work on fuzzy petri nets to deal with fuzzy topological systems. One basic idea is to use as the dualizing object in the Dialectica categories construction, the unit real interval [0,1], which has all the properties of a {\\em lineale}. The second basic idea is to generalize Vickers's notion of a topological system.

  20. A Fuzzy Commitment Scheme

    Al-saggaf, Alawi A

    2008-01-01

    This paper attempt has been made to explain a fuzzy commitment scheme. In the conventional Commitment schemes, both committed string m and valid opening key are required to enable the sender to prove the commitment. However there could be many instances where the transmission involves noise or minor errors arising purely because of the factors over which neither the sender nor the receiver have any control. The fuzzy commitment scheme presented in this paper is to accept the opening key that is close to the original one in suitable distance metric, but not necessarily identical. The concept itself is illustrated with the help of simple situation.

The first step involved the selection, thinning of the material (core) and sample preparation for the use of porosimeter to obtain effective porosity. The material studied is sandstone, friable, coarse to very fine of three wells (GPR1, GPR2 and GPR3). The fuzzy logic (MatLab) was applied to the effective porosity data calculated from the gamma ray (GR) profile for the construction of a synthetic profile and from this we could identify the errors made in calculating the data. Then the results of porosity from the core were correlated with data from the corrected effective porosity (gamma ray profile) in order to prove the results obtained with both methods. The analysis of the synthetic porosity calculated by the fuzzy logic has shown that this is a promising method for assessing the quality of data and to obtain good fits. (author)

    This study aims at developing a fuzzy-based algorithm to control the frequency applied to the motor of a gasifier ventilation system in order to ensure adequate temperature in the oxidation zone and produce good quality gas. The input variables of the fuzzy controller were: error, which determines the difference between the desired temperature and the temperature at a given instant; and temperature variation, which will inform if it is increasing or decreasing at a given instant. The response variable was the operation frequency of the ventilation system motor. The rule base was built based on experimental data. The tests with the control algorithm allowed us to see that it is possible to control the oxidation zone temperature - producing gas in a stable way, which does not occur in gasification processes without ventilation system control.

    Full Text Available O presente estudo foi realizado entre 189 obesos de baixa renda atendidos por nutricionistas na rede pública de saúde de João Pessoa, Paraíba. Levantou as crenças positivas e negativas e os referentes mais expressivos sobre estes pacientes quanto ao comportamento de seguir uma dieta médica para redução de peso. Um instrumento de medida da intenção comportamental de efetivamente seguir tais dietas foi construído, o que permitiu verificar a ênfase do aspecto normativo geral e atitudinal nos obesos com renda de até um salário-mínimo sobre sua intenção comportamental. Isto pode indicar dois pontos eficazes a serem explorados em comunicações dirigidas a esta classe social em campanhas de saúde para redução de peso. Esta medição torna-se útil para ações preventivas de saúde; a obesidade é considerada uma epidemia mundial carente de controle imediato, aumentando em incidência principalmente nas classes mais baixas dos países em desenvolvimento.The present study was accomplished with 189 low income obese attended by public health nutritionists of João Pessoa, Paraíba. We found out positive and negative beliefs plus the most expressive referees on these patients about the behavior of following a medical diet to reduce weight. This permitted to build a behavioral intention measurement instrument to check those who might really follow these diets. It was verified the emphasis on general normative and attitudinal aspects over obese who had up to one minimum-wage income. This may indicate two efficacious points to be explored on targeted communications to this social class during weight loss public health campaigns. This measurement can be turned into preventive health actions; obesity is considered worldwide as epidemics, in need of immediate control, growing in incidence mainly among lower ranks of the population of developing countries.

    2008-01-01

    A systematic fuzzy approach is developed to model fuzziness and uncertainties in the preferences of decision makers involved in a conflict. This unique fuzzy preference formulation is used within the paradigm of the Graph Model for Conflict Resolution in which a given dispute is modeled in terms of decision makers, each decision maker's courses of actions or options, and each decision maker's preferences concerning the states or outcomes which could take place. In order to be able to determine the stability of each state for each decision maker and the possible equilibria or resolutions, a range of solution concepts describing potential human behavior under conflict are defined for use with fuzzy preferences. More specifically, strong and weak definitions of stability are provided for the solution concepts called Nash, general metarational, symmetric metarational, and sequential stability. To illustrate how these solution concepts can be conveniently used in practice, they are applied to a dispute over the contamination of an aquifer by a chemical company located in Elmira, Ontario, Canada.

  12. Intuitionistic Fuzzy Graphs with Categorical Properties

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available The main purpose of this paper is to show the rationality of some operations, defined or to be defined, on intuitionistic fuzzy graphs. Firstly, three kinds of new product operations (called direct product, lexicographic product, and strong product are defined in intuitionistic fuzzy graphs, and some important notions on intuitionistic fuzzy graphs are demonstrated by characterizing these notions and their level counterparts graphs such as intuitionistic fuzzy complete graph, cartesian product of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs, composition of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs, union of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs, and join of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs. As a result, a kind of representations of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs and intuitionistic fuzzy complete graphs are given. Next, categorical goodness of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs is illustrated by proving that the category of intuitionistic fuzzy graphs and homomorphisms between them is isomorphic-closed, complete, and co-complete.

  13. Probability representations of fuzzy systems

    LI Hongxing

    2006-01-01

    In this paper, the probability significance of fuzzy systems is revealed. It is pointed out that COG method, a defuzzification technique used commonly in fuzzy systems, is reasonable and is the optimal method in the sense of mean square. Based on different fuzzy implication operators, several typical probability distributions such as Zadeh distribution, Mamdani distribution, Lukasiewicz distribution, etc. are given. Those distributions act as "inner kernels" of fuzzy systems. Furthermore, by some properties of probability distributions of fuzzy systems, it is also demonstrated that CRI method, proposed by Zadeh, for constructing fuzzy systems is basically reasonable and effective. Besides, the special action of uniform probability distributions in fuzzy systems is characterized. Finally, the relationship between CRI method and triple I method is discussed. In the sense of construction of fuzzy systems, when restricting three fuzzy implication operators in triple I method to the same operator, CRI method and triple I method may be related in the following three basic ways: 1) Two methods are equivalent; 2) the latter is a degeneration of the former; 3) the latter is trivial whereas the former is not. When three fuzzy implication operators in triple I method are not restricted to the same operator, CRI method is a special case of triple I method; that is, triple I method is a more comprehensive algorithm. Since triple I method has a good logical foundation and comprises an idea of optimization of reasoning, triple I method will possess a beautiful vista of application.

    This book focuses on the fields of fuzzy logic, granular computing and also considering the control area. These areas can work together to solve various control problems, the idea is that this combination of areas would enable even more complex problem solving and better results. In this book we test the proposed method using two benchmark problems: the total flight control and the problem of water level control for a 3 tank system. When fuzzy logic is used it make it easy to performed the simulations, these fuzzy systems help to model the behavior of a real systems, using the fuzzy systems fuzzy rules are generated and with this can generate the behavior of any variable depending on the inputs and linguistic value. For this reason this work considers the proposed architecture using fuzzy systems and with this improve the behavior of the complex control problems.

We elaborate explicitly how strings linking its two coincident sheets arise in terms of fuzzy spherical harmonics. In the large N limit, the matrix-model Laplacian is shown to correctly reproduce the semi-classical dynamics of these charged strings, as given by the Landau problem.

  4. Genetic Algorithm Optimization for Determining Fuzzy Measures from Fuzzy Data

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Fuzzy measures and fuzzy integrals have been successfully used in many real applications. How to determine fuzzy measures is a very difficult problem in these applications. Though there have existed some methodologies for solving this problem, such as genetic algorithms, gradient descent algorithms, neural networks, and particle swarm algorithm, it is hard to say which one is more appropriate and more feasible. Each method has its advantages. Most of the existed works can only deal with the data consisting of classic numbers which may arise limitations in practical applications. It is not reasonable to assume that all data are real data before we elicit them from practical data. Sometimes, fuzzy data may exist, such as in pharmacological, financial and sociological applications. Thus, we make an attempt to determine a more generalized type of general fuzzy measures from fuzzy data by means of genetic algorithms and Choquet integrals. In this paper, we make the first effort to define the σ-λ rules. Furthermore we define and characterize the Choquet integrals of interval-valued functions and fuzzy-number-valued functions based on σ-λ rules. In addition, we design a special genetic algorithm to determine a type of general fuzzy measures from fuzzy data.

    The concept of quasi-coincidence of a fuzzy interval value with an interval valued fuzzy set is considered. In fact, this is a generalization of quasi-coincidence of a fuzzy point with a fuzzy set. By using this new idea, the notion of interval valued (∈, ∈∨q)-fuzzy filters in BL-algebras which is a generalization of fuzzy filters of BL-algebras, is defined, and related properties are investigated. In particular, the concept of a fuzzy subgroup with thresholds is extended to the concept of an interval valued fuzzy filter with thresholds in BL-algebras.

    By constructing a mean-square performance index in the case of fuzzy random variable, the optimal estimation theorem for unknown fuzzy state using the fuzzy observation data are given. The state and output of linear discrete-time dynamic fuzzy system with Gaussian noise are Gaussian fuzzy random variable sequences. An approach to fuzzy Kalman filtering is discussed. Fuzzy Kalman filtering contains two parts: a real-valued non-random recurrence equation and the standard Kalman filtering.

    Fuzzy logic has proven to be a simple and robust method for process control. Instead of requiring a complex model of the system, a user defined rule base is used to control the process. In this paper the principles of fuzzy logic control are applied to Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV). Two frames of digitally recorded, single exposure particle imagery are used as input. The fuzzy processor uses the local particle displacement information to determine the correct particle tracks. Fuzzy PTV is an improvement over traditional PTV techniques which typically require a sequence (greater than 2) of image frames for accurately tracking particles. The fuzzy processor executes in software on a PC without the use of specialized array or fuzzy logic processors. A pair of sample input images with roughly 300 particle images each, results in more than 200 velocity vectors in under 8 seconds of processing time.

    Fuzzy pharmacology is a term coined to represent the application of fuzzy logic and fuzzy set theory to pharmacological problems. Fuzzy logic is the science of reasoning, thinking and inference that recognizes and uses the real world phenomenon that everything is a matter of degree. It is an extension of binary logic that is able to deal with complex systems because it does not require crisp definitions and distinctions for the system components. In pharmacology, fuzzy modeling has been used for the mechanical control of drug delivery in surgical settings, and work has begun evaluating its use in other pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic applications. Fuzzy pharmacology is an emerging field that, based on these initial explorations, warrants further investigation.

    We study phase structures of quantum field theories in fuzzy geometries. Several examples of fuzzy geometries as well as QFT's on such geometries are considered. They are fuzzy spheres and beyond as well as noncommutative deformations of BTZ blackholes. Analysis is done analytically and through simulations. Several features like novel stripe phases as well as spontaneous symmetry breaking avoiding Colemen, Mermin, Wagner theorem are brought out. Also we establish that these phases are stable due to topological obstructions.

  18. COMPATIBLE EXTENSIONS OF FUZZY RELATIONS

    In 1930 Szpilrajn proved that any strict partial order can be embedded in a strict linear order.This theorem was later refined by Dushnik and Miller (1941), Hansson (1968), Suzumura (1976),Donaldson and Weymark (1998), Bossert (1999). Particularly Suzumura introduced the important concept of compatible extension of a (crisp) relation. These extension theorems have an important role in welfare economics. In particular Szpilrajn theorem is the main tool for proving a known theorem of Richter that establishes the equivalence between rational and congruous consumers. In 1999 Duggan proved a general extension theorem that contains all these results. In this paper we introduce the notion of compatible extension of a fuzzy relation and we prove an extension theorem for fuzzy relations. Our result generalizes to fuzzy set theory the main part of Duggan's theorem. As applications we obtain fuzzy versions of the theorems of Szpilrajn, Hansson and Suzumura. We also prove that an asymmetric and transitive fuzzy relation has a compatible extension that is total, asymmetric and transitive.Our results can be useful in the theory of fuzzy consumers. We can prove that any rational fuzzyconsumer is congruous, extending to a fuzzy context a part of Richter's theorem. To prove that acongruous fuzzy consumer is rational remains an open problem. A proof of this result can somehowuse a fuzzy version of Szpilrajn theorem.

    This paper presents contrast enhancement algorithms based on fuzzy contextual information of the images. We introduce fuzzy similarity index and fuzzy contrast factor to capture the neighborhood characteristics of a pixel. A new histogram, using fuzzy contrast factor of each pixel is developed, and termed as the fuzzy dissimilarity histogram (FDH). A cumulative distribution function (CDF) is formed with normalized values of FDH and used as a transfer function to obtain the contrast enhanced image. The algorithm gives good contrast enhancement and preserves the natural characteristic of the image. In order to develop a contextual intensity transfer function, we introduce a fuzzy membership function based on fuzzy similarity index and coefficient of variation of the image. The contextual intensity transfer function is designed using the fuzzy membership function to achieve final contrast enhanced image. The overall algorithm is referred as the fuzzy contextual contrast-enhancement (FCCE) algorithm. The proposed algorithms are compared with conventional and state-of-art contrast enhancement algorithms. The quantitative and visual assessment of the results is performed. The results of quantitative measures are statistically analyzed using t-test. The exhaustive experimentation and analysis show the proposed algorithm efficiently enhances contrast and yields in natural visual quality images.

In this paper, we developed a fuzzy mathematical programming model for solving problem of allocating the containers in terminal area. The objective is minimizing the total distance traversed by the containers from the ship to the terminal area they are assigned. Fuzzy set concepts are used to treat imprecision regarding the distances between berth and terminals area, number of containers in an arrived ship and estimation of available area in each terminal at a port. We proposed two types of models for optimistic and pessimistic situations. The proposed models have been coded in LINGO8.0 solver and a numerical example has been solved for illustration purpose. The full analysis of the proposed models can cause an optimum allocation of containers of several ships to different terminals of berths in fuzzy environment.

    We describe the relationship between the fuzzy sets and the algebraic hyperstructures.In fact,this paper is a continuation of the ideas presented by Davvaz in (Fuzzy Sets Syst.,117: 477-484,2001) and Bhakat and Das in (Fuzzy Sets Syst.,80: 359-368,1996).The concept of the quasi-coincidence of a fuzzy interval value with an interval-valued fuzzy set is introduced and this is a naturalgeneralization of the quasi-coincidence of a fuzzy point in fuzzy sets.By using this new idea,the conceptof interval-valued (α,β)-fuzzy sub-hypermodules of a hypermodule is defined.This newly definedinterval-valued (α,β)-fuzzy sub-hypermodule is a generalization of the usual fuzzy sub-hypermodule.We shall study such fuzzy sub-hypermodules and consider the implication-based interval-valued fuzzysub-hypermodules of a hypermodule.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper introduces new closeness coefficients for fuzzy similarity based TOPSIS. The new closeness coefficients are based on multidistance or fuzzy entropy, are able to take into consideration the level of similarity between analysed criteria, and can be used to account for the consistency or homogeneity of, for example, performance measuring criteria. The commonly known OWA operator is used in the aggregation process over the fuzzy similarity values. A range of orness values is considered in creating a fuzzy overall ranking for each object, after which the fuzzy rankings are ordered to find a final linear ranking. The presented method is numerically applied to a research and development project selection problem and the effect of using two new closeness coefficients based on multidistance and fuzzy entropy is numerically illustrated.

    Full Text Available We point out that the product of two fuzzy closed sets of smooth fuzzy topological spaces need not be fuzzy closed with respect to the the existing notion of product smooth fuzzy topology. To get this property, we introduce a new suitable product smooth fuzzy topology. We investigate whether F1×F2 and (F,H are weakly smooth fuzzy continuity whenever F1, F2, F and H are weakly smooth fuzzy continuous. Using this new product smooth fuzzy topology, we define smooth fuzzy perfect mapping and prove that composition of two smooth fuzzy perfect mappings is smooth fuzzy perfect under some additional conditions. We also introduce two new notions of compactness called Q-compactness and Q-α-compactness; and discuss the compactness of the image of a Q-compact set (Q-α-compact set under a weakly smooth fuzzy continuous function ((α,β-weakly smooth fuzzy continuous function.

    We construct various exact analytical solutions of the SO(3) BMN matrix model that correspond to rotating fuzzy spheres and rotating fuzzy tori. These are also solutions of Yang Mills theory compactified on a sphere times time and they are also translationally invariant solutions of the N=1{sup ∗} field theory with a non-trivial charge density. The solutions we construct have a ℤ{sub N} symmetry, where N is the rank of the matrices. After an appropriate ansatz, we reduce the problem to solving a set of polynomial equations in 2N real variables. These equations have a discrete set of solutions for each value of the angular momentum. We study the phase structure of the solutions for various values of N. Also the continuum limit where N→∞, where the problem reduces to finding periodic solutions of a set of coupled differential equations. We also study the topology change transition from the sphere to the torus.

    Recurrence plots display binary texture of time series from dynamical systems with single dots and line structures. Using fuzzy recurrence plots, recurrences of the phase-space states can be visualized as grayscale texture, which is more informative for pattern analysis. The proposed method replaces the crucial similarity threshold required by symmetrical recurrence plots with the number of cluster centers, where the estimate of the latter parameter is less critical than the estimate of the former.

    2017-03-01

    A detailed Monte Carlo calculation of the phase diagram of bosonic mass-deformed IKKT Yang-Mills matrix models in three and six dimensions with quartic mass deformations is given. Background emergent fuzzy geometries in two and four dimensions are observed with a fluctuation given by a noncommutative U (1) gauge theory very weakly coupled to normal scalar fields. The geometry, which is determined dynamically, is given by the fuzzy spheres SN2 and SN2 × SN2 respectively. The three and six matrix models are effectively in the same universality class. For example, in two dimensions the geometry is completely stable, whereas in four dimensions the geometry is stable only in the limit M ⟶ ∞, where M is the mass of the normal fluctuations. The behaviors of the eigenvalue distribution in the two theories are also different. We also sketch how we can obtain a stable fuzzy four-sphere SN2 × SN2 in the large N limit for all values of M as well as models of topology change in which the transition between spheres of different dimensions is observed. The stable fuzzy spheres in two and four dimensions act precisely as regulators which is the original goal of fuzzy geometry and fuzzy physics. Fuzzy physics and fuzzy field theory on these spaces are briefly discussed.

    Full Text Available In data clustering, partition based clustering algorithms are widely used clustering algorithms. Among various partition algorithms, fuzzy algorithms, Fuzzy c-Means (FCM, Gustafson–Kessel (GK and non-fuzzy algorithm, k-means (KM are most popular methods. k-means and Fuzzy c-Means use standard Euclidian distance measure and Gustafson–Kessel uses fuzzy covariance matrix in their distance metrics. In this work, a comparative study of these algorithms with different famous real world data sets, liver disorder and wine from the UCI repository is presented. The performance of the three algorithms is analyzed based on the clustering output criteria. The results were compared with the results obtained from the repository. The results showed that Gustafson–Kessel produces close results to Fuzzy c-Means. Further, the experimental results demonstrate that k-means outperforms the Fuzzy c-Means and Gustafson–Kessel algorithms. Thus the efficiency of k-means is better than that of Fuzzy c-Means and Gustafson–Kessel algorithms.

    Full Text Available A espécie Sotalia fluviatilis é pouco conhecida na região amazônica, principalmente no estado do Amapá, onde estudos são bastante escassos. O presente estudo tem por objetivo contribuir para o aumento do conhecimento sobre o padrão comportamental e percepção dos barqueiros sobre S. fluviatilis no porto do açaí. Este trabalho foi realizado em um ponto fixo localizado no Porto do Açaí. As observações foram feitas mensalmente no período de julho de 2013 a dezembro de 2013 em período matutino, junto às entrevistas com os barqueiros presentes no porto com a aplicação de um questionário de pesquisa com TCLE. Os padrões comportamentais mais frequentes observados pelo tucuxi foram deslocamento lento, deslocamento rápido e forrageio. Com relação a percepção dos barqueiros quando perguntados a maior parte dos barqueiros afirmou ver o boto tucuxi com frequência no porto, em grupos de dois a três indivíduos, realizando atividade de alimentação/forrageio. A presença maior da espécie no período de maré alta foi afirmada pelos entrevistados, corroborando com os dados de observação in loco. Segundo os entrevistados o tucuxi quando avistado localiza-se as margens do rio e que a presença da espécie é atribuída à alimentação descartada pelos vendedores de peixe do local e que hoje há menos animais em relação à 5 anos. Nesse sentido, espera-se o presente estudo contribua para informações sobre áreas de ocorrência de S. fluviatilis e futuramente subsidiar medidas de conservação para a espécie, tendo em vista a iminência da construção de um porto de escoamento de soja nas proximidades da área.

    This paper presents a new fuzzy multiple criteria (both qualitative and quantitative) decision-making (MCDM) method based on fuzzy relational degree analysis. The concepts of fuzzy set theory are used to construct a weighted suitability decision matrix to evaluate the weighted suitability of different alternatives versus various criteria. The positive ideal solution and negative ideal solution are then obtained by using a method of ranking fuzzy numbers, and the fuzzy relational degrees of different alternatives versus positive ideal solution and negative ideal solution are calculated by using the proposed arithmetic. Finally, the relative relational degrees of various alternatives versus positive ideal solution are ranked to determine the best alternative. A numerical example is provided to illustrate the proposed method at the end of this paper.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: As terapias comportamental e cognitivo-comportamental reduzem os sintomas do transtorno obsessivo-compulsivo em mais de 70% dos pacientes. Entretanto, cerca de 30% não obtêm nenhuma melhora. Conhecer fatores associados a esses desfechos poderia auxiliar numa melhor indicação do tratamento, incrementando sua eficácia. MÉTODO: Foram revisados trabalhos que investigaram fatores preditivos de resultados nos tratamentos do transtorno obsessivo-compulsivo, nas fontes PubMed, PsycINFO e LILACS. Termos utilizados na busca: predictive factors OR prediction AND obsessive-compulsive disorder AND exposure response prevention OR ritual prevention OR behav* therapy OR cognitive behav* therapy, resultando em 104 artigos. As referências dos artigos foram analisadas, possibilitando maior número de trabalhos revisados. Excluíram-se artigos que utilizaram apenas farmacoterapia e aqueles que não abordavam o tema, resultando em 29 artigos. DISCUSSÃO: As variáveis demográficas parecem exercer papel indireto, destacando-se sexo masculino e ausência de companheiro(a como fatores de pior prognóstico. Maior gravidade e início precoce dos sintomas indicariam piores resultados. O transtorno esquizotípico comórbido é potencialmente negativo. Sintomas relacionados ao colecionismo e com conteúdo sexual/religioso indicam pior prognóstico. Maior nível de insight, motivação e colaboração com o tratamento são características favoráveis. Maior intensidade da melhora e a remissão completa são preditores para a não-recaída. CONCLUSÃO: A identificação de fatores preditores de resultados está longe de ser esclarecida. É possível que múltiplos fatores, cujas associações são complexas, atuem em conjunto. Os resultados podem depender de fatores não-específicos, ainda não abordados pelos estudos. A heterogeneidade do transtorno obsessivo-compulsivo e das pesquisas e o uso associado de medicamentos dificultam o estabelecimento de

    Full Text Available The solution set of a multi-response experiment is characterized by Pareto solution set. In this paper, the multi-response experiment is dealed in a fuzzy framework. The responses and model parameters are considered as triangular fuzzy numbers which indicate the uncertainty of the data set. Fuzzy least square approach and fuzzy modified NSGA-II (FNSGA-II are used for modeling and optimization, respectively. The obtained fuzzy Pareto solution set is grouped by using fuzzy relational clustering approach. Therefore, it could be easier to choose the alternative solutions to make better decision. A fuzzy response valued real data set is used as an application.

Finally, it is proved that every fuzzy Boolean ideal is a fuzzy Gödel ideal, but the converse implication is not true. PMID:24892085

    The concept of quasi-coincidence of a fuzzy interval value in an interval valued fuzzy set is considered. In fact, this concept is a generalized concept of the quasi-coincidence of a fuzzy point in a fuzzy set. By using this new concept, the authors define the notion of interval valued (∈, ∈ Vq)-fuzzy h-ideals of hemirings and study their related properties. In addition, the authors also extend the concept of a fuzzy subgroup with thresholds to the concept of an interval valued fuzzy h-ideal with thresholds in hemirings.

    2003-01-01

    Based upon the maximum entropy theorem of information theory, a novel fuzzy approach for edge detection is presented. Firsdy, a definition of fuzzy partition entropy is proposed after introducing the concepts of fuzzy probability and fuzzy partition. The relation of the probability partition and the fuzzy c-partition of the image gradient are used in the algorithm. Secondly, based on the conditional probabilities and the fuzzy partition, the optimal thresholding is searched adaptively through the maximum fuzzy entropy principle, and then the edge image is obtained. Lastly, an edge-enhancing procedure is executed on the edge image. The experimental results show that the proposed approach performs well.

    In conventional image matching methods, the image matching process is mostly based on image statistic information. One aspect neglected by all these methods is that there is much fuzzy information contained in these images. A new fuzzy matching algorithm based on fuzzy similarity for navigation is presented in this paper. Because the fuzzy theory is of the ability of making good description of the fuzzy information contained in images, the image matching method based on fuzzy similarity would look forward to producing good performance results. Experimental results using matching algorithm based on fuzzy information also demonstrate its reliability and practicability.

    2011-01-01

    The notion of intuitionistic fuzzy sets was introduced by Atanassov as a generalization of the notion of fuzzy sets. S.K Sardar and S.K. Majumder unified the idea of fuzzy translation and fuzzy multiplication of Vasantha Kandasamy to introduce the concept of fuzzy magnified translation in groups and semigroups. The purpose of this paper is to intuitionistically fuzzify(by using Atanassov's idea) the concept of fuzzy magnified translation in semigroups. Here among other results we obtain some characterization theorems of regular, intra-regular, left(right) regular semigroups in terms of intuitionistic fuzzy magnified translation.

    As a natural generalization of fuzzy metric spaces due to George and Veeramani [George A, Veeramani P. On some result in fuzzy metric space. Fuzzy Sets Syst 1994;64:395-9], the present author defined the notion of L-fuzzy metric spaces. In this paper we prove some known results of metric spaces including Uniform continuity theorem and Ascoli-Arzela theorem for L-fuzzy metric spaces. We also prove that every L-fuzzy metric space has a countably locally finite basis and use this result to conclude that every L-fuzzy metric space is metrizable.

    2006-01-01

    Fuzzy ontologies are efficient tools to handle fuzzy and uncertain knowledge on the semantic web; but there are heterogeneity problems when gaining interoperability among different fuzzy ontologies. This paper uses concept approximation between fuzzy ontologies based on instances to solve the heterogeneity problems. It firstly proposes an instance selection technology based on instance clustering and weighting to unify the fuzzy interpretation of different ontologies and reduce the number of instances to increase the efficiency. Then the paper resolves the problem of computing the approximations of concepts into the problem of computing the least upper approximations of atom concepts. It optimizes the search strategies by extending atom concept sets and defining the least upper bounds of concepts to reduce the searching space of the problem. An efficient algorithm for searching the least upper bounds of concept is given.

    Cpałka, Krzysztof

    2017-01-01

    This book shows that the term “interpretability” goes far beyond the concept of readability of a fuzzy set and fuzzy rules. It focuses on novel and precise operators of aggregation, inference, and defuzzification leading to flexible Mamdani-type and logical-type systems that can achieve the required accuracy using a less complex rule base. The individual chapters describe various aspects of interpretability, including appropriate selection of the structure of a fuzzy system, focusing on improving the interpretability of fuzzy systems designed using both gradient-learning and evolutionary algorithms. It also demonstrates how to eliminate various system components, such as inputs, rules and fuzzy sets, whose reduction does not adversely affect system accuracy. It illustrates the performance of the developed algorithms and methods with commonly used benchmarks. The book provides valuable tools for possible applications in many fields including expert systems, automatic control and robotics.

    A kind of modelling method for fuzzy control systems is first proposed here, which is calledmodelling method based on fuzzy inference (MMFI). It should be regarded as the third modelling method thatis different from two well-known modelling methods, that is, the first modelling method, mechanism modellingmethod (MMM), and the second modelling method, system identification modelling method (SlMM). Thismethod can, based on the interpolation mechanism on fuzzy logic system, transfer a group of fuzzy inferencerules describing a practice system into a kind of nonlinear differential equation with variable coefficients, calledHX equations, so that the mathematical model of the system can be obtained. This means that we solve thedifficult problem of how to get a model represented as differential equations on a complicated or fuzzy controlsystem.

  7. Data fusion based on fuzzy measures

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    Choquet integral based on fuzzy measure is a very popular data fusion approach. A major problem in applying the Choquet integral is how to determine a large number of fuzzy measures as the number of attributes increases. The λ-fuzzy measure proposed by Sugeno is a powerful method to resolve this problem. However, the modeling ability of the λ-fuzzy measure is too limited to satisfy actual requirements. In this paper, an extended λ-fuzzy measure is proposed using Shapley value index, and the limitation of the λ-fuzzy measure is significantly overcome under little additional computational loads. The extended fuzzy measure has stronger modeling power than the λ-fuzzy measure, straightforwardly representing interaction among attributes. We apply the extended fuzzy measure to an artificial data set and a real dataset in an iron-steel plant. The results verify the usefulness of the extended fuzzy measure compared with other main existing methods.

Nosso objetivo foi investigar os efeitos da terapia cognitivo-comportamental (TCC nos marcadores neurobiológicos de resiliência em pacientes com transtorno de estresse pós-traumático (TEPT. Nesta pesquisa experimental de caso único, foram acessadas variáveis fisiológicas (frequência cardíaca, frequência respiratória, tônus vagal cardíaco, balanço simpático e condutância da pele e neuroendócrinas (cortisol e de-hidroepiandrosterona - DHEA e medidas psicométricas de autorrelato (afeto negativo, resiliência, sintomas de TEPT, depressão, ansiedade e apoio social. Foram medidas as respostas fisiológicas, neuroendócrinas e psicométricas em repouso antes e após quatro meses de TCC. O paciente era um homem de 45 anos que sofreu dois assaltos com arma de fogo e não respondeu adequadamente ao tratamento farmacológico com paroxetina. A TCC levou a uma redução da frequência cardíaca, frequência respiratória, balanço simpático, condutância da pele e cortisol, bem como a um aumento no tônus vagal e DHEA. Além disso, a TCC promoveu redução na pontuação dos sintomas de TEPT, depressão, ansiedade e afeto negativo e aumento da pontuação de resiliência e apoio social. Nossos dados sugerem que a TCC aumenta os fatores relacionados à resiliência (DHEA, tônus vagal, autorrelato de resiliência e apoio social. Isso não é somente "antipatológico", mas também pode ser considerado "pró-bem-estar". Adicionalmente, nossos resultados mostram a relevância da investigação dos efeitos do tratamento psicológico em múltiplos sistemas neurobiológicos no mesmo paciente com TEPT, visando desvendar as bases neurobiológicas dos fatores de resiliência.

    2015-02-01

    In the finance market, a short-term investment strategy is usually applied in portfolio selection in order to reduce investment risk; however, the economy is uncertain and the investment period is short. Further, an investor has incomplete information for selecting a portfolio with crisp proportions for each chosen security. In this paper we present a new method of constructing fuzzy portfolio model for the parameters of fuzzy-input return rates and fuzzy-output proportions, based on possibilistic mean-standard deviation models. Furthermore, we consider both excess or shortage of investment in different economic periods by using fuzzy constraint for the sum of the fuzzy proportions, and we also refer to risks of securities investment and vagueness of incomplete information during the period of depression economics for the portfolio selection. Finally, we present a numerical example of a portfolio selection problem to illustrate the proposed model and a sensitivity analysis is realised based on the results.

    2015-01-01

    In this paper the idea of strong sum distance which is a metric, in a fuzzy graph is introduced. Based on this metric the concepts of eccentricity, radius, diameter, center and self centered fuzzy graphs are studied. Some properties of eccentric nodes, peripheral nodes and central nodes are obtained. A characterisation of self centered complete fuzzy graph is obtained and conditions under which a fuzzy cycle is self centered are established. We have proved that based on this metric, an eccentric node of a fuzzy tree G is a fuzzy end node of G and a node is an eccentric node of a fuzzy tree if and only if it is a peripheral node of G and the center of a fuzzy tree consists of either one or two neighboring nodes. The concepts of boundary nodes and interior nodes in a fuzzy graph based on strong sum distance are introduced. Some properties of boundary nodes, interior nodes and complete nodes are studied.

    This paper deals with the implementation of Steiner point of fuzzy set. Some definitions and properties of Steiner point are investigated and extended to fuzzy set. This paper focuses on establishing efficient methods to compute Steiner point of fuzzy set. Two strategies of computing Steiner point of fuzzy set are proposed. One is called linear combination of Steiner points computed by a series of crisp α-cut sets of the fuzzy set. The other is an approximate method, which is trying to find the optimal α-cut set approaching the fuzzy set. Stability analysis of Steiner point of fuzzy set is also studied. Some experiments on image processing are given, in which the two methods are applied for implementing Steiner point of fuzzy image, and both strategies show their own advantages in computing Steiner point of fuzzy set.

    Full Text Available Fuzzy set theory was introduced by L.A. Zadeh in 1965. Immediately, it has many applications in practice and in building databases, one of which is the construction of a fuzzy relational database based on similar relationship. The study of cases of fuzzy relations in different environments will help us understand its applications. In this paper, the rough fuzzy relation on Cartesian product of two universe sets is defined, and then the algebraic properties of them, such as the max, min, and composition of two rough fuzzy relations are examined. Finally, reflexive, α-reflexive, symmetric and transitive rough fuzzy relations on two universe sets are also defined.

    This paper considers the economic production quantity (EPQ) problem with backorder in which the setup cost, the holding cost and the backorder cost are characterized as fuzzy variables, respectively. Following expected value criterion and chance constrained criterion, a fuzzy expected value model (EVM) and a chance constrained programming (CCP) model are constructed. Then fuzzy simulations are employed to estimate the expected value of fuzzy variable and α-level minimal average cost. In order to solve the CCP model, a particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm based on the fuzzy simulation is designed. Finally, the effectiveness of PSO algorithm based on the fuzzy simulation is illustrated by a numerical example.

  16. Adaptive Fuzzy Control for CVT Vehicle

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2005-01-01

    On the simple continuously variable transmission (CVT) driveline model, the design of adaptive fuzzy control system for CVT vehicle is presented. The adaptive fuzzy control system consists of a scaling factor self-tuning fuzzy-PI throttle controller, and a hybrid fuzzy-PID CVT ratio and brake controller. The presented adaptive fuzzy control strategy is vehicle model independent, which depends only on the instantaneous vehicle states, but does not depend on vehicle parameters. So it has good robustness against uncertain vehicle parameters and exogenous load disturbance. Simulation results show that the proposed adaptive fuzzy strategy has good adaptability and practicality value.

    In this paper, we introduce two definitions of the differentiability of type-2 fuzzy number-valued functions of fractional order. The definitions are in the sense of Riemann-Liouville and Caputo derivative of order β ɛ (0, 1), and based on type-2 Hukuhara difference and H2-differentiability. The existence and uniqueness of the solutions of type-2 fuzzy fractional differential equations (T2FFDEs) under Caputo type-2 fuzzy fractional derivative and the definition of Laplace transform of type-2 fuzzy number-valued functions are also given. Moreover, the approximate solution to T2FFDE by a Predictor-Evaluate-Corrector-Evaluate (PECE) method is presented. Finally, the approximate solutions of two examples of linear and nonlinear T2FFDEs are obtained using the PECE method, and some cases of T2FFDEs applications in some sciences are presented.

    Intuitionistic fuzzy set (IFS) is a set of 2-tuple arguments, each of which is characterized by a mem-bership degree and a nonmembership degree. The generalized form of IFS is interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy set (IVIFS), whose components are intervals rather than exact numbers. IFSs and IVIFSs have been found to be very useful to describe vagueness and uncertainty. However, it seems that little attention has been focused on the clus-tering analysis of IFSs and IVIFSs. An intuitionistic fuzzy hierarchical algorithm is introduced for clustering IFSs, which is based on the traditional hierarchical clustering procedure, the intuitionistic fuzzy aggregation operator, and the basic distance measures between IFSs: the Hamming distance, normalized Hamming, weighted Hamming, the Euclidean distance, the normalized Euclidean distance, and the weighted Euclidean distance. Subsequently, the algorithm is extended for clustering IVIFSs. Finally the algorithm and its extended form are applied to the classifications of building materials and enterprises respectively.

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available The necessity of examination of every case within its peculiar conditions in social sciences requires different approaches complying with the spirit and nature of social sciences. Multiple realities require different and various perceptual interpretations. In modern world and social sciences, interpretation of perception of valued and multi-valued have been started to be understood by the principles of fuzziness and fuzzy logic. Having the verbally expressible degrees of truthness such as true, very true, rather true, etc. fuzzy logic provides the opportunity for the interpretation of especially complex and rather vague set of information by flexibility or equivalence of the variables’ of fuzzy limitations. The methods and principles of fuzzy logic can be benefited in examination of the methodological problems of law, especially in the applications of filling the legal loopholes arising from the ambiguities and interpretation problems in order to understand the legal rules in a more comprehensible and applicable way and the efficiency of legal implications. On the other hand, fuzzy logic can be used as a technical legal method in legal education and especially in legal case studies and legal practice applications in order to provide the perception of law as a value and the more comprehensive and more quality perception and interpretation of value of justice, which is the core value of law. In the perception of what happened as it has happened in legal relationships and formations, the understanding of social reality and sociological legal rules with multi valued sense perspective and the their applications in accordance with the fuzzy logic’s methods could create more equivalent and just results. It can be useful for the young lawyers and law students as a facilitating legal method especially in the materialization of the perception and interpretation of multi valued and variables.

  3. Fuzzy Logic Particle Tracking

    Science.gov (United States)

    2005-01-01

    A new all-electronic Particle Image Velocimetry technique that can efficiently map high speed gas flows has been developed in-house at the NASA Lewis Research Center. Particle Image Velocimetry is an optical technique for measuring the instantaneous two component velocity field across a planar region of a seeded flow field. A pulsed laser light sheet is used to illuminate the seed particles entrained in the flow field at two instances in time. One or more charged coupled device (CCD) cameras can be used to record the instantaneous positions of particles. Using the time between light sheet pulses and determining either the individual particle displacements or the average displacement of particles over a small subregion of the recorded image enables the calculation of the fluid velocity. Fuzzy logic minimizes the required operator intervention in identifying particles and computing velocity. Using two cameras that have the same view of the illumination plane yields two single exposure image frames. Two competing techniques that yield unambiguous velocity vector direction information have been widely used for reducing the single-exposure, multiple image frame data: (1) cross-correlation and (2) particle tracking. Correlation techniques yield averaged velocity estimates over subregions of the flow, whereas particle tracking techniques give individual particle velocity estimates. For the correlation technique, the correlation peak corresponding to the average displacement of particles across the subregion must be identified. Noise on the images and particle dropout result in misidentification of the true correlation peak. The subsequent velocity vector maps contain spurious vectors where the displacement peaks have been improperly identified. Typically these spurious vectors are replaced by a weighted average of the neighboring vectors, thereby decreasing the independence of the measurements. In this work, fuzzy logic techniques are used to determine the true

Este trabalho propõe-se a avaliar comparativamente crianças, filhos de alcoolistas (FA, e filhos de não-alcoolistas (FNA com relação às variáveis acima citadas. MÉTODOS: O estudo baseia-se na comparação entre grupos, com delineamento denominado quasi experimental. Selecionaram-se dois grupos de 20 crianças, de ambos os sexos, com idades entre 10 e 12 anos, sendo um dos grupos composto por filhos de alcoolistas e o outro por filhos de não-alcoolistas. Estas crianças foram submetidas à avaliação do autoconceito por meio da Escala Infantil Piers-Harris de Autoconceito e do desempenho escolar por meio do Teste de Desempenho Escolar (TDE. As mães destas crianças participaram do estudo respondendo a questões relativas ao comportamento de seus filhos, por meio da Escala Comportamental Infantil A2 de Rutter. RESULTADOS: Os resultados mostraram que filhos de alcoolistas tendem a ter um autoconceito mais negativo e um desempenho escolar inferior nas tarefas de leitura e aritmética quando comparados a filhos de não-alcoolistas. Quanto à percepção das mães, filhos de alcoolistas apresentam mais problemas de comportamento que filhos de não-alcoolistas. CONCLUSÕES: Concluiu-se que os resultados deste trabalho corroboram os de outros estudos e chamam a atenção para a necessidade de se atentar para possíveis vulnerabilidades das crianças filhas de alcoolistas, sobretudo, para tentar minimizá-las alterando a trajetória do sofrimento psicológico, que pode marcar suas vidas.

    Full Text Available Este estudo é uma tentativa de aplicação da lógica fuzzy na tomada de decisão em análise sensorial como uma alternativa para avaliar alimentos e preparações alimentares, especialmente em Alimentação Coletiva. A lógica fuzzy permite trabalhar com ambiguidade, abrindo uma perspectiva alternativa de estrutura que substitui a lei do meio excludente de Aristóteles pela lógica de Bertrand Russel, onde uma afirmativa ambígua pode ter valores entre zero e 1. Esta lógica subjetiva, baseada na linguagem natural, é expressa por variável lingüística mapeada pelo conjunto fuzzy. Iniciou-se por quatro hipóteses para verificar a aplicabilidade da lógica fuzzy para tomada de decisão ao avaliar produtos em testes hedônicos. Este estudo usou banco de dados armazenados em uma planilha referente a uma aplicação de testes sensoriais com consumidores, de ambos os sexos, com idade entre 18 a 55 anos; 48 testaram geléia de casca de banana e 50, doce de entrecasca da melancia. Os achados permitem utilizar a lógica fuzzy como uma alternativa às análises clássicas. Enquanto a ANOVA e a MANOVA são usadas em testes para interação entre atributos, a lógica fuzzy mapeia a sensação de "prazer/desprazer" decidindo pela convergência das funções de pertinência de forma holística.This study is an attempt to apply "fuzzy logic" in the decision-making process in sensorial analysis as a way to validate a faster method to evaluate foods and food preparations, specially in Collective Food. Fuzzy logic permits to work with ambiguity, opening a perspective of quantity alternative structure that replaces the Aristotle's law of excluding enviromment by the Bertrand Russel's logic, where an ambiguous affirmative can have values between 0 and 1.This subjective logic, based on a natural language, is mapped by "fuzzy sets". It started by four hypotheses in verify the applicability of fuzzy logic to making decision to accept products in hedonistic tests

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents the use of fuzzy models to explicitly consider sensor uncertainty and finite resolution in solving the SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping problem for autonomous mobile robots. The approach establishes fuzzy confidence models in describing occupied obstacles and available space. The problem is transformed into an optimization task of minimizing the alignment error between newly scanned local fuzzy maps and selected parts of a developing global fuzzy map. In aligning local fuzzy maps into a global fuzzy map, we developed a prediction strategy to crop the most potential part from the sensed local fuzzy maps to be overlapped with the global fuzzy map. A mobile vehicle equipped with a laser range finder, the Hokuyo URG-04LX, is used to demonstrate the procedure of fuzzy map building. Experimental results show that the proposed architecture is effective in generating a comprehensive global fuzzy map, which is suitable for both human comprehension and path design during real-time navigation.

    The key component of finite element analysis of structures with fuzzy parameters,which is associated with handling of some fuzzy information and arithmetic relation of fuzzy variables, was the solving of the governing equations of fuzzy finite element method. Based on a given interval representation of fuzzy numbers, some arithmetic rules of fuzzy numbers and fuzzy variables were developed in terms of the properties of interval arithmetic.According to the rules and by the theory of interval finite element method, procedures for solving the static governing equations of fuzzy finite element method of structures were presented. By the proposed procedure, the possibility distributions of responses of fuzzy structures can be generated in terms of the membership functions of the input fuzzy numbers.It is shown by a numerical example that the computational burden of the presented procedures is low and easy to implement. The effectiveness and usefulness of the presented procedures are also illustrated.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Considering the uncertainty of a financial market includes two aspects: risk and vagueness; in this paper, fuzzy sets theory is applied to model the imprecise input parameters (interest rate and volatility. We present the fuzzy price of compound option by fuzzing the interest and volatility in Geske’s compound option pricing formula. For each α, the α-level set of fuzzy prices is obtained according to the fuzzy arithmetics and the definition of fuzzy-valued function. We apply a defuzzification method based on crisp possibilistic mean values of the fuzzy interest rate and fuzzy volatility to obtain the crisp possibilistic mean value of compound option price. Finally, we present a numerical analysis to illustrate the compound option pricing under fuzzy environment.

  8. FFLP problem with symmetric trapezoidal fuzzy numbers

    Reza Daneshrad

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available The most popular approach for solving fully fuzzy linear programming (FFLP problems is to convert them into the corresponding deterministic linear programs. Khan et al. (2013 [Khan, I. U., Ahmad, T., & Maan, N. (2013. A simplified novel technique for solving fully fuzzy linear programming problems. Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications, 159(2, 536-546.] claimed that there had been no method in the literature to find the fuzzy optimal solution of a FFLP problem without converting it into crisp linear programming problem, and proposed a technique for the same. Others showed that the fuzzy arithmetic operation used by Khan et al. (2013 had some problems in subtraction and division operations, which could lead to misleading results. Recently, Ezzati et al. (2014 [Ezzati, R., Khorram, E., & Enayati, R. (2014. A particular simplex algorithm to solve fuzzy lexicographic multi-objective linear programming problems and their sensitivity analysis on the priority of the fuzzy objective functions. Journal of Intelligent and Fuzzy Systems, 26(5, 2333-2358.] defined a new operation on symmetric trapezoidal fuzzy numbers and proposed a new algorithm to find directly a lexicographic/preemptive fuzzy optimal solution of a fuzzy lexicographic multi-objective linear programming problem by using new fuzzy arithmetic operations, but their model was not fully fuzzy optimization. In this paper, a new method, by using Ezzati et al. (2014’s fuzzy arithmetic operation and a fuzzy version of simplex algorithm, is proposed for solving FFLP problem whose parameters are represented by symmetric trapezoidal fuzzy number without converting the given problem into crisp equivalent problem. By using the proposed method, the fuzzy optimal solution of FFLP problem can be easily obtained. A numerical example is provided to illustrate the proposed method.

  14. Consistent linguistic fuzzy preference relations method with ranking fuzzy numbers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ridzuan, Siti Amnah Mohd; Mohamad, Daud; Kamis, Nor Hanimah

    2014-12-01

    Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods have been developed to help decision makers in selecting the best criteria or alternatives from the options given. One of the well known methods in MCDM is the Consistent Fuzzy Preference Relation (CFPR) method, essentially utilizes a pairwise comparison approach. This method was later improved to cater subjectivity in the data by using fuzzy set, known as the Consistent Linguistic Fuzzy Preference Relations (CLFPR). The CLFPR method uses the additive transitivity property in the evaluation of pairwise comparison matrices. However, the calculation involved is lengthy and cumbersome. To overcome this problem, a method of defuzzification was introduced by researchers. Nevertheless, the defuzzification process has a major setback where some information may lose due to the simplification process. In this paper, we propose a method of CLFPR that preserves the fuzzy numbers form throughout the process. In obtaining the desired ordering result, a method of ranking fuzzy numbers is utilized in the procedure. This improved procedure for CLFPR is implemented to a case study to verify its effectiveness. This method is useful for solving decision making problems and can be applied to many areas of applications.

  15. Decomposed fuzzy systems and their application in direct adaptive fuzzy control.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hsueh, Yao-Chu; Su, Shun-Feng; Chen, Ming-Chang

    2014-10-01

    In this paper, a novel fuzzy structure termed as the decomposed fuzzy system (DFS) is proposed to act as the fuzzy approximator for adaptive fuzzy control systems. The proposed structure is to decompose each fuzzy variable into layers of fuzzy systems, and each layer is to characterize one traditional fuzzy set. Similar to forming fuzzy rules in traditional fuzzy systems, layers from different variables form the so-called component fuzzy systems. DFS is proposed to provide more adjustable parameters to facilitate possible adaptation in fuzzy rules, but without introducing a learning burden. It is because those component fuzzy systems are independent so that it can facilitate minimum distribution learning effects among component fuzzy systems. It can be seen from our experiments that even when the rule number increases, the learning time in terms of cycles is still almost constant. It can also be found that the function approximation capability and learning efficiency of the DFS are much better than that of the traditional fuzzy systems when employed in adaptive fuzzy control systems. Besides, in order to further reduce the computational burden, a simplified DFS is proposed in this paper to satisfy possible real time constraints required in many applications. From our simulation results, it can be seen that the simplified DFS can perform fairly with a more concise decomposition structure.

  10. Fuzzy logic of Aristotelian forms

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Perlovsky, L.I. [Nichols Research Corp., Lexington, MA (United States)

    1996-12-31

    Model-based approaches to pattern recognition and machine vision have been proposed to overcome the exorbitant training requirements of earlier computational paradigms. However, uncertainties in data were found to lead to a combinatorial explosion of the computational complexity. This issue is related here to the roles of a priori knowledge vs. adaptive learning. What is the a-priori knowledge representation that supports learning? I introduce Modeling Field Theory (MFT), a model-based neural network whose adaptive learning is based on a priori models. These models combine deterministic, fuzzy, and statistical aspects to account for a priori knowledge, its fuzzy nature, and data uncertainties. In the process of learning, a priori fuzzy concepts converge to crisp or probabilistic concepts. The MFT is a convergent dynamical system of only linear computational complexity. Fuzzy logic turns out to be essential for reducing the combinatorial complexity to linear one. I will discuss the relationship of the new computational paradigm to two theories due to Aristotle: theory of Forms and logic. While theory of Forms argued that the mind cannot be based on ready-made a priori concepts, Aristotelian logic operated with just such concepts. I discuss an interpretation of MFT suggesting that its fuzzy logic, combining a-priority and adaptivity, implements Aristotelian theory of Forms (theory of mind). Thus, 2300 years after Aristotle, a logic is developed suitable for his theory of mind.

  11. Fuzzy Logic for Incidence Geometry.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tserkovny, Alex

    The paper presents a mathematical framework for approximate geometric reasoning with extended objects in the context of Geography, in which all entities and their relationships are described by human language. These entities could be labelled by commonly used names of landmarks, water areas, and so forth. Unlike single points that are given in Cartesian coordinates, these geographic entities are extended in space and often loosely defined, but people easily perform spatial reasoning with extended geographic objects "as if they were points." Unfortunately, up to date, geographic information systems (GIS) miss the capability of geometric reasoning with extended objects. The aim of the paper is to present a mathematical apparatus for approximate geometric reasoning with extended objects that is usable in GIS. In the paper we discuss the fuzzy logic (Aliev and Tserkovny, 2011) as a reasoning system for geometry of extended objects, as well as a basis for fuzzification of the axioms of incidence geometry. The same fuzzy logic was used for fuzzification of Euclid's first postulate. Fuzzy equivalence relation "extended lines sameness" is introduced. For its approximation we also utilize a fuzzy conditional inference, which is based on proposed fuzzy "degree of indiscernibility" and "discernibility measure" of extended points.

  16. Need for fuzzy morphology: erosion as a fuzzy marker

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dougherty, Edward R.; Sinha, Divyendu

    1992-03-01

    The need for fuzzy mathematical morphology is explained in terms of the need for fuzzy erosion in certain types of applications, especially where erosion is serving as a marker, as with hit-or-miss shape recognition. Since erosion is defined by fitting, there at once arises a need for relating fuzzified set inclusion and mathematical morphology. The result is a very general class of Minkowski algebras based upon an axiomatic description of indicator functions that yield acceptable set-inclusion fuzzifications and a subclass of richer Minkowski algebras resulting from an analytic formulation for indicators that is constrained by the axioms.

    Full Text Available A multicriteria analysis in ranking the quality of teaching using fuzzy rule is proposed. The proposed method uses the application of fuzzy sets and approximate reasoning in deciding the ranking of the quality of teaching in several courses. The proposed method introduces normalizing data which dampen the extreme value that exists in the data. The use of the model is suitable in evaluating situations that involve subjectivity, vagueness and imprecise information. Experimental results are comparable and the method performs better in some domains. .

  18. Accurate segmentation of leukocyte in blood cell images using Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy and interval Type II fuzzy set theory.

    Chaira, Tamalika

    2014-06-01

    In this paper automatic leukocyte segmentation in pathological blood cell images is proposed using intuitionistic fuzzy and interval Type II fuzzy set theory. This is done to count different types of leukocytes for disease detection. Also, the segmentation should be accurate so that the shape of the leukocytes is preserved. So, intuitionistic fuzzy set and interval Type II fuzzy set that consider either more number of uncertainties or a different type of uncertainty as compared to fuzzy set theory are used in this work. As the images are considered fuzzy due to imprecise gray levels, advanced fuzzy set theories may be expected to give better result. A modified Cauchy distribution is used to find the membership function. In intuitionistic fuzzy method, non-membership values are obtained using Yager's intuitionistic fuzzy generator. Optimal threshold is obtained by minimizing intuitionistic fuzzy divergence. In interval type II fuzzy set, a new membership function is generated that takes into account the two levels in Type II fuzzy set using probabilistic T co norm. Optimal threshold is selected by minimizing a proposed Type II fuzzy divergence. Though fuzzy techniques were applied earlier but these methods failed to threshold multiple leukocytes in images. Experimental results show that both interval Type II fuzzy and intuitionistic fuzzy methods perform better than the existing non-fuzzy/fuzzy methods but interval Type II fuzzy thresholding method performs little bit better than intuitionistic fuzzy method. Segmented leukocytes in the proposed interval Type II fuzzy method are observed to be distinct and clear.

    A theory of reverse triple I method with sustention degree is presented by using the implication operator R0 in every step of the fuzzy reasoning. Its computation formulas of supremum for fuzzy modus ponens and infimum for fuzzy modus tollens are given respectively. Moreover, through the generalization of this problem, the corresponding formulas of ?-reverse triple I method with sustention degree are also obtained. In addition, the theory of reverse triple I method with restriction degree is proposed as well by using the operator R0, and the computation formulas of infimum for fuzzy modus ponens and supremum for fuzzy modus tollens are shown.

    The internal relations between fuzzy controllers and PID controllers are revealed. First, it is pointed out that a fuzzy controller with one input and one output is just a piecewise P controller. Then it is proved that a fuzzy controller with two inputs and one output is just a piecewise PD (or I) controller with interaction between P and D (or PI). At last, the conclusion that a fuzzy controller with three inputs and one output is just a piecewise PID controller with interaction among P, I and D is given. Moreover, a kind of difference scheme of fuzzy controllers is designed.

    In this paper, we firstly associate fuzzy reasoning algorithm with the interpolation algorithm and discuss the limitation of defuzzification methods used commonly in the fuzzy reasoning algorithm. Secondly, we give a new fuzzy reasoning algorithm in case of single input, called the truth-value transmittal method, and discuss its properties. Finally, we analyze the rationality to adopy the truth-value transmittal method as the defuzzification method of full implication triple I method, and show that although CRI and triple I fuzzy reasoning method are different from fuzzy output set, they are uniform finally under the truth-value transmittal defuzzification method.

    Fuzzy C-means clustering algorithm is a classical non-supervised classification method.For image classification, fuzzy C-means clustering algorithm makes decisions on a pixel-by-pixel basis and does not take advantage of spatial information, regardless of the pixels' correlation. In this letter, a novel fuzzy C-means clustering algorithm is introduced, which is based on image's neighborhood system. During classification procedure, the novel algorithm regards all pixels'fuzzy membership as a random field. The neighboring pixels' fuzzy membership information is used for the algorithm's iteration procedure. As a result, the algorithm gives a more smooth classification result and cuts down the computation time.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this study was to determine the repercussions of left temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE for subjects with left mesial temporal sclerosis (LMTS in relation to the behavioral test-Dichotic Digits Test (DDT, event-related potential (P300, and to compare the two temporal lobes in terms of P300 latency and amplitude. We studied 12 subjects with LMTS and 12 control subjects without LMTS. Relationships between P300 latency and P300 amplitude at sites C3A1,C3A2,C4A1, and C4A2, together with DDT results, were studied in inter-and intra-group analyses. On the DDT, subjects with LMTS performed poorly in comparison to controls. This difference was statistically significant for both ears. The P300 was absent in 6 individuals with LMTS. Regarding P300 latency and amplitude, as a group, LMTS subjects presented trend toward greater P300 latency and lower P300 amplitude at all positions in relation to controls, difference being statistically significant for C3A1 and C4A2. However, it was not possible to determine laterality effect of P300 between affected and unaffected hemispheres.O objetivo deste estudo foi determinar a repercussão da epilepsia de lobo temporal esquerdo (LTE em indivíduos com esclerose mesial temporal esquerda (EMTE em relação à avaliação auditiva comportamental-Teste Dicótico de Dígitos (TDD, ao Potencial Evocado Auditivo de Longa Latência (P300 e comparar o P300 do lobo temporal esquerdo e direito. Estudamos 12 indivíduos com EMTE (grupo estudo e 12 indivíduos controle com desenvolvimento típico. Analisamos as relações entre a latência e amplitude do P300, obtidos nas posições C3A1,C3A2,C4A1 e C4A2 e os resultados obtidos no TDD. No TDD, o grupo estudo apresentou pior desempenho em relação ao grupo controle, sendo esta diferença estatisticamente significante em ambas as orelhas. Para o P300, observamos que em seis indivíduos com EMTE o potencial foi ausente. Para a latência e amplitude, verificamos que estes

    During the course of development of Mechanical Engineering, a large number of mechanisms (that is, linkages to perform various types of tasks) have been conceived and developed. Quite a few atlases and catalogues were prepared by the designers of machines and mechanical systems. However, often it is felt that a clustering technique for handling the list of large number of mechanisms can be very useful,if it is developed based on a scientific principle. In this paper, it has been shown that the concept of fuzzy sets can be conveniently used for this purpose, if an adequate number of properly chosen attributes (also called characteristics) are identified. Using two clustering techniques, the mechanisms have been classified in the present work and in future, it may be extended to develop an expert system, which can automate type synthesis phase of mechanical design. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this type of clustering of mechanisms has not been attempted before. Thus, this is the first attempt to cluster the mechanisms based on some quantitative measures. It may help the engineers to carry out type synthesis of the mechanisms.

    The theory of metric spaces of fuzzy numbers has been established and found very convenient in many research fields on fuzzy analysis such as fuzzy integrals and differentials, fuzzy differential equations, fuzzy random variables and fuzzy stochastic processes etc.. But, a large part of this theory heavily depends on the condition that fuzzy number has to have compact support set and so fails to analyze and apply noncompact fuzzy numbers. The purpose of this paper is to introduce three classes of metrics on noncompact fuzzy number space and to discuss their basic properties, completeness and separability in detail.

    The measure of uncertainty is adopted as a measure of information. The measures of fuzziness are known as fuzzy information measures. The measure of a quantity of fuzzy information gained from a fuzzy set or fuzzy system is known as fuzzy entropy. Fuzzy entropy has been focused and studied by many researchers in various fields. In this paper, firstly, the axiomatic definition of fuzzy entropy is discussed. Then, neural networks model of fuzzy entropy is proposed, based on the computing capability of neural networks. In the end, two examples are discussed to show the efficiency of the model.

    Full Text Available The notions of continuity was generalized in the fuzzy setting by Chang (1968. Later on Azad (1981 introduced some weaker form of fuzzy continuity like fuzzy almost continuity, fuzzy semi-continuity and fuzzy weak continuity. These are natural generalization of the corresponding weaker forms of continuity in topological spaces. Recently Arya and Singal (2001a and b introduce another weaker form of fuzzy continuity, namely fuzzy subweakly continuity as a natural generalization of subweak continuity introduced by Rose (1984. In this paper we introduce fuzzy weak continuity in mixed fuzzy topological space.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available A novel signal representation using fuzzy mathematical morphology is developed. We take advantage of the optimum fuzzy fitting and the efficient implementation of morphological operators to extract geometric information from signals. The new representation provides results analogous to those given by the polynomial transform. Geometrical decomposition of a signal is achieved by windowing and applying sequentially fuzzy morphological opening with structuring functions. The resulting representation is made to resemble an orthogonal expansion by constraining the results of opening to equate adapted structuring functions. Properties of the geometric decomposition are considered and used to calculate the adaptation parameters. Our procedure provides an efficient and flexible representation which can be efficiently implemented in parallel. The application of the representation is illustrated in data compression and fractal dimension estimation temporal signals and images.

    The majority of existing information systems deals with crisp data through crisp database systems. Traditional Database Management Systems (DBMS) have not taken into account imprecision so one can say there is some sort of lack of flexibility. The reason is that queries retrieve only elements which precisely match to the given Boolean query. That is, an element belongs to the result if the query is true for this element; otherwise, no answers are returned to the user. The aim of this paper is to present a cooperative approach to handling empty answers of fuzzy conjunctive queries by referring to the Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) theory and fuzzy logic. We present an architecture which combines FCA and databases. The processing of fuzzy queries allows detecting the minimal reasons of empty answers. We also use concept lattice in order to provide the user with the nearest answers in the case of a query failure.

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available A digital identification filter interacts with an output reference model signal known as a black-box output system. The identification technique commonly needs the transition and gain matrixes. Both estimation cases are based on mean square criterion obtaining of the minimum output error as the best estimation filtering. The evolution system represents adaptive properties that the identification mechanism includes considering the fuzzy logic strategies affecting in probability sense the evolution identification filter. The fuzzy estimation filter allows in two forms describing the transition and the gain matrixes applying actions that affect the identification structure. Basically, the adaptive criterion conforming the inference mechanisms set, the Knowledge and Rule bases, selecting the optimal coefficients in distribution form. This paper describes the fuzzy strategies applied to the Kalman filter transition function, and gain matrixes. The simulation results were developed using Matlab©.

    In this paper,a parallel fuzzy proportional plus fuzzy integral plus fuzzy derivative (FP+FI+FD) controller is proposed.It is derived from the conventional parallel proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller.It preserves the linear structure of a conventional parallel PID controller,with analytical formulas.The final shape of the controller is a discrete-time fuzzy version of a conventional parallel PID controller.Computer simulations are performed to evaluate the performance of the FP+FI+FD controller for setpoint tracking and load-disturbance rejection for some complex processes,such as first-and second-order processes with delay,inverse response process with and without delay and higher order processes.Also,the performance of the proposed fuzzy controller is evaluated experimentally on highly nonlinear liquid-flow process with a hysteresis characteristic due to a pneumatic control valve.The simulation and real time control is done using National InstrumentTM hardware and software (LabVIEWTM).The response of the FP+FI+FD controller is compared with the conventional parallel PID controller,tuned with the Ziegler-Nichols (Z-H) and (A)str(o)mH(a)gglund (A-H) tuning technique.It is observed that the FP+FI+FD controller performed much better than the conventional PI/PID controller.Simulation and experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed parallel FP+FI+FD controller.

    The classical least squares (LS) method is widely used in regression analysis because computing its estimate is easy and traditional. However, LS estimators are very sensitive to outliers and to other deviations from basic assumptions of normal theory [Huynh H. A comparison of four approaches to robust regression. Psychol Bull 1982;92:505-12; Stephenson D. 2000. Available from: (http://folk.uib.no/ngbnk/kurs/notes/node38.html); Xu R, Li C. Multidimensional least-squares fitting with a fuzzy model. Fuzzy Sets and Systems 2001;119:215-23.]. If there exists outliers in the data set, robust methods are preferred to estimate parameters values. We proposed a fuzzy robust regression method by using fuzzy numbers when x is crisp and Y is a triangular fuzzy number and in case of outliers in the data set, a weight matrix was defined by the membership function of the residuals. In the fuzzy robust regression, fuzzy sets and fuzzy regression analysis was used in ranking of residuals and in estimation of regression parameters, respectively [Sanli K, Apaydin A. Fuzzy robust regression analysis based on the ranking of fuzzy sets. Inernat. J. Uncertainty Fuzziness and Knowledge-Based Syst 2008;16:663-81.]. In this study, standard deviation estimations are obtained for the parameters by the defined weight matrix. Moreover, we propose another point of view in hypotheses testing for parameters.

    Humans have a limited ability to accurately and continuously analyse large amount of data. In recent times, there has been a rapid growth in patient monitoring and medical data analysis using smart monitoring systems. Fuzzy logic-based expert systems, which can mimic human thought processes in complex circumstances, have indicated potential to improve clinicians' performance and accurately execute repetitive tasks to which humans are ill-suited. The main goal of this study is to develop a clinically useful diagnostic alarm system based on fuzzy logic for detecting critical events during anaesthesia administration. The proposed diagnostic alarm system called fuzzy logic monitoring system (FLMS) is presented. New diagnostic rules and membership functions (MFs) are developed. In addition, fuzzy inference system (FIS), adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), and clustering techniques are explored for developing the FLMS' diagnostic modules. The performance of FLMS which is based on fuzzy logic expert diagnostic systems is validated through a series of off-line tests. The training and testing data set are selected randomly from 30 sets of patients' data. The accuracy of diagnoses generated by the FLMS was validated by comparing the diagnostic information with the one provided by an anaesthetist for each patient. Kappa-analysis was used for measuring the level of agreement between the anaesthetist's and FLMS's diagnoses. When detecting hypovolaemia, a substantial level of agreement was observed between FLMS and the human expert (the anaesthetist) during surgical procedures. The diagnostic alarm system FLMS demonstrated that evidence-based expert diagnostic systems can diagnose hypovolaemia, with a substantial degree of accuracy, in anaesthetized patients and could be useful in delivering decision support to anaesthetists.

    2012-01-01

    Covering in detail both theoretical and practical perspectives, this book is a self-contained and systematic depiction of current fuzzy stochastic optimization that deploys the fuzzy random variable as a core mathematical tool to model the integrated fuzzy random uncertainty. It proceeds in an orderly fashion from the requisite theoretical aspects of the fuzzy random variable to fuzzy stochastic optimization models and their real-life case studies.   The volume reflects the fact that randomness and fuzziness (or vagueness) are two major sources of uncertainty in the real world, with significant implications in a number of settings. In industrial engineering, management and economics, the chances are high that decision makers will be confronted with information that is simultaneously probabilistically uncertain and fuzzily imprecise, and optimization in the form of a decision must be made in an environment that is doubly uncertain, characterized by a co-occurrence of randomness and fuzziness. This book begins...
