Basically, fuzzy logic is a precise logic of imprecision and approximate reasoning. (Zadeh, 2008, p. 2051) Fuzziness, or vagueness (Sorensen, 2008), is an uncertainty regarding concept boundaries. In contrast to ambiguous terms, which have several meanings, vague terms have one meaning, but the extent of it is not sharply distinguishable. For example, the word tall can be ambiguous, because a tall cat is usually smaller than a small horse. Nevertheless, the disambiguated predicate “tall for a cat” is vague, because its linguistic concept does not imply a sharp border between tall and small cats.

21): negation by the inverse of the corresponding fuzzy set, conjunction by intersection of the corresponding fuzzy sets, and disjunction by union of the corresponding fuzzy sets. ” They are based on the representation operator is : U  Ueà ! 2 Fuzziness 17 universe U of discourse and its fuzzy powerset Ueà to the class of fuzzy propositions F . Consequently, fuzzy propositions in the sense of Zadeh are limited to statements about degrees of membership in a fuzzy set. Generally, logic with fuzzy propositions—or more precisely, a propositional logic with Zadehan truth values in the interval between 0 and 1, a “Zadehan Logic” (ZL)—can be viewed as a generalization of Boole’s mathematical analysis of logic to a gradual concept of truth.

This idea is the basis for IFC proposed in the next section. The usefulness of this generalization is shown in the chapter on applications, in which fuzzy propositions such as “customers with characteristic X are likely to buy product Y” are assigned truth-values that are computed using quantitative prediction modeling. 2 2 Fuzziness and Induction Fuzzy Classification  È É e of individuals i, e :¼$ i ∈ U  Π e ðiÞ , is defined as a fuzzy set C A fuzzy class, C whose membership degree is defined by the Zadehan truth-value of the proposition e ðiÞ.
