This book presents the basic rudiments of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic and their applications in a simple easy to understand manner. The book avoids the extremes of abstract mathematical proofs as well as specialised technical details of different areas of application; it is intended to motivate the readers in getting a clear grasp of the basic concepts of the subject and its possible applications.
A special feature of the book is that the exercises at the end of each chapter are preceded by a set of short answer review type questions. These are intended to help the reader in developing confidence that he/she has correctly grasped the concepts introduced in the chapter.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students of mathematics will find this book of real help in understanding the concepts of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic and their possible applications.
