zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.
py: 2000-2015 cc: (94A | 11T) Number ranges are accepted. Terms can be grouped within (parentheses).
la: chinese Find documents in a given language. ISO 639-1 language codes can also be used.

Fuzzy mathematics. An introduction for engineers and scientists. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 1009.03002
Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing. 20. Heidelberg: Physica-Verlag. xiii, 310 p. DM 138.00; sFr. 119.84; £48.00; $ 84.00 (2001).

This is a slightly expanded version of the first edition (1998; Zbl 0956.03046), and again it is a nice and valuable presentation of seriously “fuzzified” tools of standard applied mathematics.

Chapters 1 to 4 remained unchanged. The other two chapters have been slightly modified and extended. In Chapter 5 on “Fuzzy geometry” the authors now also present results (of A. Rosenfeld and co-workers) from the late 1980s on degrees of adjacency and surroundness, on image enhancement and thresholding via fuzzy compactness, and on Hausdorff distances between fuzzy sets. In Chapter 6 on “Fuzzy abstract algebra” recent results (mainly of the first named author) are added on (local) solutions of nonlinear systems of fuzzy intersection equations of fuzzy singletons.
