Fuzzy least squares. (English) Zbl 0663.65150

The author discusses three models of fuzzy linear regression function for triangular fuzzy numbers [Fuzzy numbers with triangular shapes, cf. D. Dubois and H. Prade, Int. J. Syst. Sci. 9, 613-626 (1978; Zbl 0383.94045)]. Formulas are deduced by the least-squares method.
