By Kevin Warwick (auth.), Robert John, Ralph Birkenhead (eds.)

Soft Computing has come of age. specifically, synthetic Neural Networks, Fuzzy good judgment and Evolutionary Computing now play an immense function in lots of domain names the place conventional concepts were stumbled on in need of. As this quantity confirms, hybrid recommendations that mix a couple of of the gentle Computing ways are quite profitable in lots of troublesome areas. This quantity includes papers provided on the foreign convention on fresh Advances in tender Computing 2000 at De Montfort college in Leicester. The contributions hide either theoretical advancements and useful purposes within the numerous parts of sentimental Computing.

In this paper we clarify the relation between two different kinds of fuzzy relations: Fuzzy Weak Orders [Bodenhofer, 99] and Resemblance Relations [Bouchon-Meunier & Valverde, 92]. The main idea to relate them is that any Fuzzy Weak Ordering defined on a set X can be isomorphically embedded into a Resemblance Relation on the fuzzy power set [0, l]X by means of the Duality Principle for Fuzzy Sets [Ovchinnikov, 94] . In this way, Resemblance Relations can be seen as a generalization of Fuzzy Weak Orders.

John et al. ), Developments in Soft Computing © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2001 32 One possible engineering application that may benefit from this approach is in the generation of component models for use in the simulation of air conditioning systems. The performance of some of the components of interest are too complex to describe using either classical or expert knowledge approaches. Black-box methods such as polynomial models have been used in this problem. Automatic generation of fuzzy rule based models from data by GA offers the benefits of transparency without additional expert intervention.

A new encoding procedure, which leads to significant minimisation of the chromosome, is proposed in this paper. Combining the new encoding mechanism with a realcoded GA permits parameter identification simultaneously with the structure identification in addition to allowing the application of the approach to realistically dimensioned problems.
