Fuzzy logic

Fuzzy Logic is an extended logic based on the assignment of a degree of truth[?] to each proposition. It is highly related to fuzzy sets and possibility theory[?]. It was proposed by Lotfi Zadeh.

A basic implementation could be to quantify where a limited range applies to a smooth spectrum - as in temperature measurement for anti-lock brakes to function properly. Truth values are derived from the specific temperature - in accordance with a scheme for mapping graduated temperature values to a series of candidate quantities - these quantities can then be used to determine a separate function in accordance with the graduated value scheme.

In this image, cold, warm, and hot are identities mapped to a temperature scale. A point on that scale is represented by two "truth values" - one in each of the two nearest identities. As the temperature rises, its "truth value" in the cold category declines, while its "truth value" in the warmer category rises.
