"Fuzzy Logic" Department Seminar

Professor B. Vastor, Kings College, Cambridge, England

Fuzzy Logic is concerned with systems in which subsets are only vaguely defined.

This seminar will be held at 4:00 pm in room 347 unless the lecture there is running late. In which case it will be held in room 211. It will be held on June 15 unless Professor Vastor takes longer than expected to finish the experiments on which the seminar to be given is based.
