Fuzzy sets placing values

Fuzzy sets placing values

Fuzzy sets placing values


Just wanted to know how to put some values in arrays.


One would be car- ford, toyata, audi.

2nd one would be = long, round, large

The 3rd would be ={1.8,0.5,2.0}

Then by typing i.e. some values in like the third array you find out which car you were looking at.


How would I go about doing this or is there a website I could go on?


RE: Fuzzy sets placing values

Based on your example, I think you'd want to use maps.  

You'll need to provide more information if you want a better answer.

RE: Fuzzy sets placing values

thank for the reply.

I think this may make it a bit clearer

A fruit example,

A group of fruits ={banana, mango}

Shape={long, round, large}

I think assign numbers i.e. a banana is 1.0 large, 0.0 round and 0.5 large.

Then someone can type in for the three shape choices i.e. I want something 0.9 large, 0.2 round and 0.3 large. Therefore he/she would get the closest thing which would be a banana in this case.


RE: Fuzzy sets placing values

I think what I would do is this:

Calculate the sum of the absolute value of the differences
[1.0-.9] + [0.0-0.2] + [0.5-0.3] = 0.5

Store that value in a TreeMap.


TreeMap myMap = new TreeMap();
float calculatedSumofAbsoulteDifference;
String fruitName;
String answer;

/* for loop to calculate values*/
/* end for loop*/
answer = myMap.get(myMap.firstKey());

There might be a better way, but I can't think of one at the moment.

RE: Fuzzy sets placing values

This should be asked in the Java forum.

I'd use a HashMap with key=name of fruit, value=array of three numbres.

I'd iterate calculating the differences and getting the min.
