Course detail

Fuzzy Models of Technical Processes and Systems

FSI-9FMSAcad. year: 2016/2017Winter semesterNot applicable.. year of study2  credits

The course is intended for the students of doctoral degree programme and it is concerned with the fundamentals of the fuzzy sets theory: operations with fuzzy sets, extension principle, fuzzy numbers, fuzzy relations and graphs, fuzzy functions, linguistics variable, fuzzy logic, approximate reasoning and decision making, fuzzy control, etc. It also deals with the applicability of those methods for modeling of vague technical variables and processes.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students acquire necessary knowledge of important parts of fuzzy set theory, which will enable them to create effective mathematical models of technical phenomena and processes with uncertain information, and carry them out on PC by means of adequate implementations.

Prerequisites

Elements of the set theory, algebra and mathematical analysis.
