By "real" I meant "real valued". Because of that, there's nothing in fuzzy set theory you couldn't handle with rather boring and classical measure theoretic tools.

That's not what I was arguing for. Of course a fuzzy set is different from a classical one. But this still doesn't change the fact that at the bottom, it's defined in terms of classical logic, set theory and measures. We have an extra layer of indirection, yes, but it adds little interesting to the overall picture. Received on Thu Mar 01 2007 - 08:18:44 CET
