The paper analyses issues leading to errors in graphic object classifiers. Thedistance measures suggested in literature and used as a basis in traditional, fuzzy, andNeuroFuzzy classifiers are found to be not suitable for classification of nonstylized orfuzzy objects in which the features of classes are much more difficult to recognize becauseof significant uncertainties in their location and graylevels. The authors suggest a neurofuzzygraphic object classifier with modified distance measure that gives betterperformance indices than systems based on traditional ordinary and cumulative distancemeasures. Simulation has shown that the quality of recognition significantly improveswhen using the suggested method.

While sophisticated analytical methods like MorgensternPrice or finite elementmethods are available for more realistic analysis of stability of slopes, assessment of the exactvalues of soil parameters is practically impossible. Uncertainty in the soil parameters arisesfrom two different sources: scatter in data and systematic error inherent in the estimate of soilproperties. Hence, stability of a slope should be expressed using a factor of safetyaccompanied by a reliability index.In this paper, the theory of fuzzy sets is used to deal simultaneously with the uncertain natureof soil parameters and the inaccuracy involved in the analysis. Soil parameters are definedusing suitable fuzzy sets and the uncertainty inherent in the value of factor of safety isassessed accordingly. It is believed that this approach accounts for the uncertainty in soilparameters more realistically compared to the conventional probabilistic approaches reportedin the literature. A computer program is developed that carries out the large amount ofcalculations required for evaluating the fuzzy factor of safety based on the concept of domaininterval analysis. An aggregated fuzzy reliability index (AFRI) is defined and assigned to thecalculated factor of safety. The proposed method is applied to a case study and the results arediscussed in details. Results from sensitivity analysis describe where the exploration effort orquality control should be concentrated. The advantage of the proposed method lies in its fastcalculation speed as well as its ease of data acquisition from experts’ opinion through fuzzysets.

The pioneer work of image compression/reconstruction based onfuzzy relational equations (ICF) and the related works are introduced. TheICF regards an original image as a fuzzy relation by embedding the brightnesslevel into [0,1]. The compression/reconstruction of ICF correspond to thecomposition/solving inverse problem formulated on fuzzy relational equations.Optimizations of ICF can be consequently deduced based on fuzzy relationalcalculus, i.e., computation time reduction/improvement of reconstructed imagequality are correspond to a fast solving method/finding an approximatesolution of fuzzy relational equations, respectively. Through the experimentsusing test images extracted from Standard Image DataBAse (SIDBA), theeffectiveness of the ICF and its optimizations are shown.

In applications there occur different forms of uncertainty. The twomost important types are randomness (stochastic variability) and imprecision(fuzziness). In modelling, the dominating concept to describe uncertainty isusing stochastic models which are based on probability. However, fuzzinessis not stochastic in nature and therefore it is not considered in probabilisticmodels.Since many years the description and analysis of fuzziness is subject of intensiveresearch. These research activities do not only deal with the fuzziness ofobserved data, but also with imprecision of informations. Especially methodsof standard statistical analysis were generalized to the situation of fuzzy observations.The present paper contains an overview about of the presentationof fuzzy information and the generalization of some basic classical statisticalconcepts to the situation of fuzzy data.

The notion of strong arcs in a fuzzy graph was introduced byBhutani and Rosenfeld in [1] and fuzzy end nodes in the subsequent paper[2] using the concept of strong arcs. In Mordeson and Yao [7], the notion of“degrees” for concepts fuzzified from graph theory were defined and studied.In this note, we discuss degrees for fuzzy end nodes and study further someproperties of fuzzy end nodes and fuzzy cut nodes.

In this paper, countable compactness and the Lindel¨of propertyare defined for Lfuzzy sets, where L is a complete de Morgan algebra. Theydon’t rely on the structure of the basis lattice L and no distributivity is requiredin L. A fuzzy compact Lset is countably compact and has the Lindel¨ofproperty. An Lset having the Lindel¨of property is countably compact if andonly if it is fuzzy compact. Many characterizations of countable compactnessand the Lindel¨of property are presented by means of open Lsets and closedLsets when L is a completely distributive de Morgan algebra.
