%X A novel fuzzy reasoning method called the SQI (symmetric quintuple implicational) methodis put forward, which is a generalization of the QIP (quintuple implication principle) method. First of all, the symmetric quintuple implicational principles are presented, which are distinct from the ones of the QIP method. Then unified optimal solutions of the SQI method are obtained for FMP (fuzzy modus ponens) and FMT (fuzzy modus tollens), meanwhile corresponding reversible properties are verified. Furthermore, focusing on the case of multiple rules, optimal solutions of the SQI method are achieved, which involves two general approaches, i.e., FITA (first-infer-then-aggregate) and FATI (first-aggregate-then-infer). Equivalence relation of continuity and interpolation is analyzed for both FITA and FATI under the environment of the SQI method. Finally, one computing example arising in the field of affective computing is given for the SQI method with FATI. It is found that the SQI method preserves the same properties as the QIP method.
