Abstract: Basic results on extended fuzzy topologies are presented obtained in applying the theory of fuzzy stacks developed in Part I and using results given in [13]. There are mainly investigated notions defined for extended fuzzy topologiess which can be used for their characterizations. They are called characterizing notions. In some cases the notions we consider are characterizing notions whicha do nor need any assumption are those of fuzzy neighborhood of a fuzzy stack, of the interior of a fuzzy stack and of the set of inner points of a fuzzy stack. The notions of open fuzzy stack and of projectively open fuzzy stack are characterizing for idempotent extended fuzzy topologies. Further characterizing notions are presented obtained by restricting to valued and superior principal fuzzy stacks.

Keywords: Extended fuzzy topologies, supra fuzzy topologies, fuzzy stack pretopologies, idempotent extended fuzzy topologies, stratified and strongly stratified extended fuzzy topologies, fuzzy neighborhood operators, open and projectively open fuzzy stacks, inner points of fuzzy stacks.

Abstract: A direct adaptive tracking control architecture is proposed for a class of continuoustime nonlinear dynamis systems, for which an explict linear parameterization of the uncertainty in the dynamic is either unknown or impossible. The architectture employs fuzzy systems to approximate the optimal controller ,developes fuzzy sliding controller to compensate for the plant uncertainties, smooth the control signals and increase robustness. Global asymptotic stablity is establishes in the Lyapunov sense, with the tracking errors converging to a neiborhood of zero. The simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed control algorithm.

Fuzzy Algebras Based on Algebraic Properties

Godfrey C.Muganda

Department of Computer Science

North Central College, Naperville, IL 60566, USA

Abstract: These essence of a fuzzy set is that membership of a point in the fuzzy set is not a truefalse proposition, but is rather, a matter of degree. We suggest an algebraic approach to the constrstuction of fuzzy groups, fuzzy rings, and fuzzy modules, in which the degree of membership of a point is determined by the degree to which that point ehjoys some specified algebraic property.

Keywords: Fuzzy groups, fuzzy rings, fuzzy modules, fuzzy vector spaces.

Abstract: In this paper, we establish the equivalence between the multivalued quasi variational inequalities for fuzzy operators and the implicit Wiener-Hopf equations for fuzzy operators. We use this equivalence to suggest a number of new iterative algorithms fir solving the varitional inequclities for fuzzy operators. We also study the convergence criteria of these iterative algorithms. The results proved in this paper represent an improvement of previously known results.

No.245 Sec.3, Yen-Chiu-Yuan Road, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to 1) improve the performance of sliding mode control (SMC), 2) construct the fuzzy controller (FC) that based on the concepts of SMC. The design outline rely on the following stages: First, an adaptive mechanism is proposed to approximate the equivalent control of SMC, where the mathematical model of the nonlinear system is unknown. Second, a hitting control term is added to the SMC for achieving a stable control system. Finally, a novel fuzzy controller with two fuzzy control rules will be constructed, which not only applies the SMC rational and has the property of SMC but also guarantees the stability of the fuzzy control system. A simulation example with a nonlinear plant is applied to confirm the validity of the proposed FC.

Keywords: Fuzzy control, sliding mode control,approximation reasoning, adaotive control.

No. 245 Sec. 3, Yen-Chiu-Yuan Road, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C

Abstract: It is well known that fuzzy logic controllers have been successfully applied in many complex industrial process. However, the conventional design approaches deeply rely on someone who has rich experiences and expert knowledge. In may cases, it cannot be objectively elicited. Among the problems to be resolved in the design of fuzzy logic controller are a) derivation of control rules b) definition of the membership functions of each linguistic term and state space. Recently, some of these problems have been solved by machine learning, especially, one of these new algorithms is the genetic algorithm (GA) that is based on natural evolution. In this paper, we first design an adaptive state feedback contoller (ASFC), then a novel fuzzy controller based on the ASFC is constructed. Finally, the GA is applied to learn the parameter of fuzzy controller, where the fuzzy singleton functions in consequence part can be automatically adjusted under some objective criteria. A simulation example is used to confirm the design viewpoint.

Keywords: Genetic algorithm, fuzzy logic control, evolution, machine learning.

A ASFC-based Fuzzy Controller Design

No.245 Sec.3,Yen-Chiu-Yuan Road, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C

Abstract: In this paper we present a design methodology for stabilization of a class of fuzzy control systems. Conventionally, when facing a design problem of fuzzy control system, we first specify a set of fuzzy control rules then adjust (turning, learning) it by various approaches for system specification or stability requirement. We attempt to design procedures of the fuzzy controller in this study. First, an adaptive stata feedback controller (AFSC) is used to construct an approximate optimal control by adaptive control manner, in which an adaptive law is developed toadjust the parameters of ASFC; then, a compensation part will be given to guarantee the system stability. Finally, we construct the fuzzy control rules according to the concept of ASFC control architecture. To preserve the system stability, the membership functions of fuzzy controllerFCare all well defined. Comparing with the conventional design approaches of FC, the proposed control scheme provides an effective and intuitive manner. A nonliear simulation example is applied to confirm the validity of the FC.

Keywords: Fuzzy sets, fuzzy control, adaptive control, approximation reasoning.

Abstract: In this paper some characterization theorems relating fuzzy open sets and generated fuzzy topologies by fuzzy ideals are given. We define a criterion, -interior for a fuzzy topological space with a given fuzzy ideal. With the help of this criterion, we study fuzzy semiregularization spaces associated with the generated fuzzy topologies, the original fuzzy topologies and also with the fuzzy subspaces. Finally, we discuss some fuzzy mappings between different fuzzy topological spaces and some relations are also established in connection with earlier results.

Abstract: The notions of strong separation and strong continuity in fuzzy topological spaces have been introduced and studied in [14]. In this paper, we study the relation between these strong separation axioms and the fuzzy separation axioms given in [8,15]. Moreover, we introduce the notions of strong connectedness in fuzzy topological spaces. As in [14] a similar study for the strong connectedness and local strong connectedness is done. Fuzzy topological quotient spaces are studied from the point of view of strong connectedness. We also introduce examples showing that the strong notions and the analogous fuzzy notions are not equivalent in general. Some results, related to strong notions for mappings, product spaces, subspaces and sum spaces are obtained.

Keywords: Fuzzy topologies, -level topologies, induced fuzzy topologies, fuzzy separation axioms, strong separation axioms, connected and locally connected fuzzy topological spaces, strong-connected and locally strong-conneted fuzzy topological spaces, fuzzy topological quotient spaces.
