Soft computing comprises various paradigms dedicated to approximately solving real-world problems, e.g., in decision making, classification or learning; among these paradigms are fuzzy sets, rough sets, neural networks, and genetic algorithms.

It is well understood now in the soft computing community that hybrid approaches combining various paradigms provide very promising attempts to solving complex problems. Exploiting the potential and strength of both neural networks and rough sets, this book is devoted to rough-neurocomputing which is also related to the novel aspect of computing based on information granulation, in particular to computing with words. It provides foundational and methodological issues as well as applications in various fields.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book (actually edited volume) presents recent advances in the area of rough neural computer from a wide konge (sic) of perspectives. . The book contains a few introductory articles suitable to understand what the field of rough several computing is about." (Jan Friso Groote, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1040(9), 2004)
