About this product
- DescriptionAs a powerful approach to data reasoning, rough set theory has proven to be invaluable in kwledge acquisition, decision analysis and forecasting, and kwledge discovery. With the ability to enhance the advantages of other soft techlogy theories, hybrid rough set theory is quickly emerging as a method of choice for decision making under uncertain conditions. Keeping the complicated mathematics to a minimum, Hybrid Rough Sets and Applications in Uncertain Decision-Making provides a systematic introduction to the methods and application of the hybridization for rough set theory with other related soft techlogy theories, including probability, grey systems, fuzzy sets, and artificial neural networks. It also: * Addresses the variety of uncertainties that can arise in the practical application of kwledge representation systems * Unveils a vel hybrid model of probability and rough sets * Introduces grey variable precision rough set models * Analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of various practical applications The authors examine the scope of application of the rough set theory and discuss how the combination of variable precision rough sets and dominance relations can produce probabilistic preference rules out of preference attribute decision tables of preference actions. Complete with numerous cases that illustrate the specific application of hybrid methods, the text adopts the latest achievements in the theory, method, and application of rough sets.
- Author BiographyLirong Jian received her PhD in management science and engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 2004. She then had two years of postdoctoral experience specializing in management science and engineering at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China. At present, she is serving as a professor at the College of Economics and Management of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics; she is also working as a guide for doctoral students in management science and systems engineering. Dr. Jian is principally engaged in forecasting and decision-making methods, soft computing, and project management and system modeling. She has also directed and/or participated in nearly 20 projects at the national, provincial, and ministerial levels, for which she received four provincial awards in scientific research and applications. Over the years, she has published over 40 research papers and 6 books. Sifeng Liu received his bachelor's degree in mathematics from Henan University, Kaifeng, China in 1981, and his MS in economics and his PhD in systems engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 1986 and 1998, respectively. He has been to Slippery Rock University, Pennsylvania, and to Sydney University, Australia, as a visiting professor. At present, Professor Liu is the director of the Institute for Grey Systems Studies and the dean of the College of Economics and Management of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He is also a distinguished professor and guide for doctoral students in management science and systems engineering. Dr. Liu's main research activities are in grey systems theory and in regional technical innovation management. He has directed more than 50 projects at the national, provincial, and ministerial levels, has participated in international collaboration projects, and has published over 200 research papers and 16 books. Over the years, he has received 18 provincial and national awards for his outstanding achievements in scientific research and applications. In 2002, one of his papers was recognized by the World Organization of Systems and Cybernetics as one of the best papers of its 12th International Congress. Dr. Liu is a member of the evaluation committee of the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and a member of the standing committee for teaching guide in management science and engineering of the Ministry of Education, China. He also serves as an expert on soft science at the Ministry of Science and Technology, China. Professor Liu currently serves as the chair of the technical committee of the IEEE SMC on Grey Systems; the president of the Grey Systems Society of China (GSSC); a vice president of the Chinese Society for Optimization, Overall Planning and Economic Mathematics (CSOOPEM); a cochair of the Beijing Chapter and the Nanjing Chapter of IEEE SMC; a vice president of the Econometrics and Management Science Society of Jiangsu Province (EMSSJS); a vice president of the Systems Engineering Society of Jiangsu Province (SESJS); and a member of the Nanjing Decision Consultancy Committee. He serves as the editor in chief of Grey Systems: Theory and Application, and as a member of the editorial boards of over 10 professional journals, including The Journal of Grey System (United Kingdom); Scientific Inquiry (United States); The Journal of Grey System (Taiwan, China); Chinese Journal of Management Science; Systems Theory and Applications; Systems Science and Comprehensive Studies in Agriculture; and the Journal of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Dr. Liu has won several accolades, such as the National Excellent Teacher in 1995, Excellent Expert of Henan Province in 1998, National Expert with Prominent Contribution in 1998, Expert Enjoying Government's Special Allowance in 2000, xcellent Science and Technology Staff in Jiangsu Province in 2002, National Advanced Individual for Returnee and Achievem
