ISBN: 9788126502608

INR 899


This Indian adaptation features new illustrations and examples throughout the book. This will benefit student learning in all basic operations, the generation of membership functions, conversion to crisp quantities, decision-making techniques and specialized applications in the latter chapters of the book, providing an invaluable tool for students as well as for self-study by practicing engineers. Each chapter now includes some new examples and end-of-chapter problems.
