This book provides a critical discussion of fuzzy controllers from the perspective of classical control theory. Special emphasis is placed on topics of importance for industrial applications, including self-tuning of fuzzy controllers, optimisation and stability analysis. The text begins with a detailed introduction to fuzzy systems and control theory, and guides the reader to a thorough understanding of up-to-date research results.

From the reviews:
"This is a comprehensive book on fuzzy control, written from the perspective of a vast experience in the field of control theory and practice. ... it facilitates a deeper understanding of fuzzy control for the readers unfamiliar with the key topics of classical control. The logical argument of the material makes it equally suitable for self-study and teaching support at a postgraduate level. The book is highly recommended to researchers, students and application engineers interested in designing or implementing fuzzy controllers."
