Fuzzy data in statistics. (English) Zbl 1134.62001
Summary: The development of effective methods of data processing belongs to important challenges of modern applied mathematics and theoretical information sciences. If the natural uncertainty of the data means their vagueness, then the theory of fuzzy quantities offers relatively strong tools for their treatment. These tools differ from the statistical methods and this difference is not only justifiable but also admissible. This relatively brief paper aims to summarize the main fuzzy approaches to vague data processing, to discuss their main advantages and also their essential limitations, and to specify their place in the wide scale of information and knowledge processing methods effective for vague data.
