Toward a theory of fuzzy information granulation and its centrality in human reasoning and fuzzy logic. (English) Zbl 0988.03040
The author is well known for his continuing inspiration for the development of fuzzy set methodology. In this paper he explains his ideas on how to combine approaches toward fuzzy logic, approximate reasoning, and fuzzified functions into a common framework. This framework has the idea of information granulation (into fuzzy pieces) as its core idea.
This is essentially not a mathematical paper. As it may be expected, however, that it will be influential in applications of fuzzy sets, it is likely to be a source of mathematical problems.
