# Fuzzy textbooks

From what you have read or heard about, which is a good book on fuzzy logic/sets/systems? I'm interested in basic of fuzzy systems, fuzzification/defuzzification, etc.

here is the best book I would recomend for the subject: http://www.amazon.com/Fuzzy-Sets-Logic-Theory-Applications/dp/0131011715

Here is an easy to read book: http://www.amazon.com/Fuzzy-Logic-Revolutionary-Computer-Technology/dp/0671875353

Besides here are a list of links that might help: http://www.seattlerobotics.org/encoder/mar98/fuz/flindex.html http://www.fuzzy-logic.com/ http://videolectures.net/acai05_berthold_fl/

• I second Mariana's 1st recommendation (i.e. Klir, George J. and Yuan, Bo, 1995, Fuzzy sets and Fuzzy Logic: Theory and Applications. Prentice Hall: Upper Saddle River, N.J.). I got lucky and found a copy on Amazon for about \$1. It's chock full of hard-core math, but after slogging through it, I was able to implement many different types of fuzzy sets quite easily. If you're looking to complement Klir and Yuan with a readable text that explains the interesting concepts behind fuzzy sets, the most useful one I've found to date is McNeill, Dan, 1993, Fuzzy Logic.

• Another endorsement of Klir and Yuan. They really help explain the often confusing (for me) way that notation and nomenclature are used in the literature. Jul 24 '18 at 1:11

I have no experience with fuzzy things (well, apart from Fuzzy Felt) but this book looks interesting:

Buckley, James J. Fuzzy probability and statistics. Springer, 2006. ISBN 9783540308416.

If you are looking for exhaustiveness, Springer has the Handbook of Fuzzy Systems series which covers most topics. I particularly recommend Fundamentals of Fuzzy Sets edited by Dubois & Prade which was particularly helpful to me when I was taking a graduate class in uncertainty modelling & possibility theory (with one of the editors/authors).
