When Lotfi Zadeh invented fuzzy sets in 1965, he never dreamt that the field in which they would be most widely used would arguably be the one that became the most hostile to the concept of fuzziness, namely control. Perhaps this was because the word "fuzzy" in Western civilization does not have a positive connotation and suggests an abandonment of mathematical rigor, one of the cornerstones of control. Perhaps it was because some famous mathematical probabilists (incorrectly) claimed that there was no difference between a fuzzy set and subjective probability. Perhaps it was because for almost a decade, until the 1974 seminal paper by Prof. Ebrahim Mamdani, who founded the field of fuzzy logic control and to whose memory our book is dedicated, there were no substantial real-world applications for fuzzy sets. Or, perhaps, it was because after the founding of this field many exaggerated claims were made by the fuzzy logic control community that flew in the face of mathematical rigor and did not pay attention to the same metrics that were and still are the cornerstones for control and cannot be ignored.
