    ABSTRACT: Fuzzy membrane computing is a newly developed and promising research direction in the area of membrane computing that aims at exploring the complex in- teraction between membrane computing and fuzzy theory. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of theoretical developments and various applications of fuzzy membrane computing, and sketches future research lines. The theoretical develop- ments are reviewed from the aspects of uncertainty processing in P systems, fuzzifica- tion of P systems and fuzzy knowledge representation and reasoning. The applications of fuzzy membrane computing are mainly focused on fuzzy knowledge representation and fault diagnosis. An overview of different types of fuzzy P systems, differences between spiking neural P systems and fuzzy reasoning spiking neural P systems and newly obtained results on these P systems are presented.

    ABSTRACT: Due to the complex and non linear character, wastewater treatment process is difficult to be controlled. The demand for removing the pollutant, especially for nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), as well as reducing the cost of wastewater treatment plant is an important research theme recently. Thus, in this paper, the benchmark proposed default control strategy and 10 additional control strategies are applied on the combined biological P and N removal Benchmark Simulation Model No.1 (BSM1-P). In addition, according to the results of applying PI controllers, as usual, we also chose the group with the better performance, as well as the default control strategy, to replace the PI controllers with fuzzy controllers. In this way, it can be seen that in all cases the quality of effluent of the controlled process could be improved in some degree; and the fuzzy controllers get a better phosphorus removal.

    ABSTRACT: In many practical situations, the relation between the experts’ degrees of confidence in different related statements is well described by Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCM). This empirical success is somewhat puzzling, since from the mathematical viewpoint, each FCM relation corresponds to a simplified one-neuron neural network, and it is well known that to adequately describe relations, we need multiple neurons. In this paper, we show that the empirical success of FCM can be explained if we take into account that human’s subjective opinions follow Miller’s seven plus minus two law.

    ABSTRACT: Voice and speech communication is a major topic covering simultaneously ’communication’, ’control’ (because it often involves control in the coding algorithms), and ’computing’ - from speech analysis and recognition, to speech analytics and to speech coding over communication channels. While fuzzy logic was specifically con- ceived to deal with language and reasoning, it has yet a limited use in the referred field. We discuss some of the main current applications from the perspective of half a century since fuzzy logic inception.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes the unified treatment of an anti-windup technique for fuzzy and sliding mode controllers. A back-calculation and tracking anti-windup scheme is proposed in order to prevent the zero error integrator wind-up in the structures of state feedback fuzzy controllers and sliding mode controllers. The state feedback sliding mode controllers are based on the state feedback-based computation of the switching variable. An example that copes with the position control of an electro-hydraulic servo-system is presented. The conclusions are pointed out on the basis of digital simulation results for the state feedback fuzzy controller.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this survey article, dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Zadeh’s pioneering paper "Fuzzy Sets" (1965), is to offer a unitary view to some important spaces in fuzzy mathematics: fuzzy real line, fuzzy topological spaces, fuzzy metric spaces, fuzzy topological vector spaces, fuzzy normed linear spaces. We believe that this paper will be a support for future research in this field.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, based on the fuzzy structured element, we prove that there is a bijection function between the fuzzy number space ε1 and the space B[−1, 1], which defined as a set of standard monotonic bounded functions with monotonicity on interval [−1, 1]. Furthermore, a new approach based upon the monotonic bounded functions has been proposed to create fuzzy numbers and represent them by suing fuzzy structured element. In order to make two different metrics based space in B[−1, 1], Hausdorff metric and Lp metric, which both are classical functional metrics, are adopted and their topological properties are discussed. In addition, by the means of introducing fuzzy functional to space B[−1, 1], we present two new fuzzy number’s metrics. Finally, according to the proof of homeomorphism between fuzzy number space ε1 and the space B[−1, 1], it’s argued that not only does it give a new way to study the fuzzy analysis theory, but also makes the study of fuzzy number space easier.

    ABSTRACT: Granular computing is a new intelligent computing method based on problem solving, information processing and pattern classification. Granular com- puting based attribute reduction method is an important application of Granular computing. These algorithms are mostly based on reduction core. However, some information systems may have no reduction core, especially in the actual application data. For this case, those algorithms are powerless. In this paper, an improved reduc- tion algorithm based on granular computing is proposed. The algorithm is validated by the experimental result.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes a decision support tool which can be used for aiding the academic sraff in making the decision of including a specialty subject in an engineering curriculum. The approach is based on building a list of competences that should be acquired through the study of the specialty subjects. An evaluation of the competences is made by means of questionnaires and finally, a fuzzy model will be run. The output of the fuzzy model reflects the need for the evaluated specialty subject to be included in the curriculum. The proposed method takes into consideration the opinions and experience of both the academic staff and the employers.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we continue the study of fuzzy continuous mappings in fuzzy normed linear spaces initiated by T. Bag and S.K. Samanta, as well as by I. Sadeqi and F.S. Kia, in a more general settings. Firstly, we introduce the notion of uniformly fuzzy continuous mapping and we establish the uniform continuity theorem in fuzzy settings. Furthermore, the concept of fuzzy Lipschitzian mapping is introduced and a fuzzy version for Banach’s contraction principle is obtained. Finally, a special attention is given to various characterizations of fuzzy continuous linear operators. Based on our results, classical principles of functional analysis (such as the uniform boundedness principle, the open mapping theorem and the closed graph theorem) can be extended in a more general fuzzy context.

    ABSTRACT: The problem of fuzzy robust tracking control is investigated for uncertain nonlinear time-delay systems. The nonlinear time-delay system is modeled as uzzy Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) system, and fuzzy logic systems are used to eliminate the ncertainties of the system. A sufficient condition for the existence of fuzzy controller s given in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) and adaptive law. Based on yapunov stability theorem, the fuzzy control scheme guarantees the desired tracking erformance in sense that all the closed-loop signals are uniformly ultimately bounded (UUB). Simulation results of 2-link manipulator demonstrate the effectiveness of the eveloped control scheme.

    ABSTRACT: It is widely accepted that the key to successfully developing a system is to produce a thorough system specification and design. This task requires an appropriate formal method and a suitable tool to determine whether or not an implementation conforms to the specifications. In this paper we present an advanced technique to analyse, design and debug JADE software agents, using Alternating-time Temporal Logic (ATL) which is interpreted over concurrent game structures, considered as natural models for compositions of open systems. In development of the proposed solution, we will use our original ATL model checker. In contrast to previous approaches, our tool permits an interactive or programmatic design of the ATL models as state-transition graphs, and is based on client/server architecture: ATL Designer, the client tool, allows an interactive construction of the concurrent game structures as a directed multi-graphs and the ATL Checker, the core of our tool, represents the server part and is published as Web service.
