Example text

For any element in the universe of discourse it can unambiguously be determined whether it belongs to the set or not. A classical set may be finite, countable or uncountable. 2. 2 a. The set R = {red, orange, yellow, green, blue} is an example of a finite set that is described by its elements. b. , the set of positive integers, is an example of a countable set that is described by a property. c. The real interval [0, 1] is an example of an uncountable set. Two sets are very important, namely, the universe U, containing all elements of the universe of discourse, and the empty set 0, containing no elements at all.

Furthermore, the membership degrees of the borderline cases will naturally lie between 0 and 1. In other words, the more an element or object is characteristic ofF, the closer to 1 is its degree of membership. Thus, the use of a numerical scale, as the interval [0, 1], allows for a convenient representation of the gradation of membership. However, three things should be made clear here. First, precise membership degrees do not exist by themselves, but are only tendency indices that are subjectively assigned by an individual or a group of individuals.

4 Knowledge Representation in KBCs 27 From the modelling (knowledge representation) point of view, discussed in the previous section, we can say that this type of SECS uses a two-level knowledge representation hierarchy. For example, if we look at the closed loop transient step response, it is represented at the lower level as an analytic function describing the behavior of the closed loop over time with respect to certain performance limits (Fig. 6). At the higher metalevel this particular continuous behavior is stripped off its analytic form and is instead represented as an abstract (symbolic) object with certain properties.
