The advance of the idea of fuzzy units was once encouraged mostly by means of the necessity for a computational framework for facing platforms within which human judgement, habit and feelings play a dominant position. even supposing there are only a few papers on fuzzy units within the literature of psychology and cognitive technological know-how, the idea of fuzzy units presents a stronger version for human cognition than conventional approaches.

By concentrating on the applying of fuzzy units in human components, this publication offers a invaluable, authoritative assessment of what the speculation is ready and the way it may be utilized. a magnificent function is the wide spectrum of functions, starting from using fuzzy equipment within the ergonomic diagnostics of commercial creation platforms to approximate reasoning in probability research and the modeling of human-computer interactions in details retrieval projects. both extraordinary is the very big range of disciplines and international locations represented by means of the contributors.

X TABLE 1. Possibility versus probability distributions of C. 2 EXAMPLES OF EARLY APPLICATIONS Since its birth in 1965 (ref. 24) , approximately 10,000 papers and more than 20 books have been published concerning fuzzy set theory. Currently, two journals: "Fuzzy Mathematics" (published in China) , and "Fuzzy Sets and Systems: An International Journal" (North-Holland), and a quarterly: "Bulletin on Fuzzy Sets and their Applications" (France) , are being read all over the world. In addition, the International Journal of Man-Machine Studies and other journals (Information Sciences, Journal of Cybernetics, and IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics) regularly publish papers dealing with applications of fuzzy sets theory in the specific areas of interests.

G. 'high') is interpreted as a label for a fuzzy restriction on the values of the base variable. The fuzzy restrictions are characterized by the compatibility functions. Each such function associates with each value of the base variable a number in the interval 47 [0,1] representing the compatibility with the fuzzy restriction. ' The hedges, connectives, and negation are used as modifiers of the operands (primary terms) in a context-dependent situation. g. for f(u)) can be done as follows: very low 4> low 2- f2(u) no t low r-)1-low -s 1-f( u) more or less highes high0 1 f05(u) extremely high t=> very(very high) = high4- f4(u) Figure 2 depicts the result of an experimental work by Hersh and Caramazza (ref.

Assume A = {a,b} and B = { a, h, c}. It is obvious that A C B. In fuzzy set notation: A = {1/a, 1/b, 0/c, 0/d, i/e} ( 7) B = {1/a, 1/b, 1/c, O/d, 0/e} i: ) Since B(x) > A(x) for each cec it follows that A C B. 32 Def: Assume A and are two fuzzy subsets of C. A and B are said to he equal, denoted A = B, if A C P and B C L. We note that L = B if A(x) = B(x) for x e C. Def: The null fuzzy subset of X is defined as the fuzzy subset f of C such that f (x) = 4 for each x e C. We note that for any fuzzy subset A of C, f C A.
