A comparative analysis of fuzzy system modelling approaches: A case in mining medical diagnostic rules

Kilic, K
Uncu, O
Turksen, IB
Fuzzy system modeling approximates highly nonlinear systems by means of fuzzy if-then rules. In the literature, different approaches are proposed for mining fuzzy if-then rules from historical data. These approaches usually utilize fuzzy clustering in structure identification phase. In this research, we are going to analyze three possible approaches from the literature and try to compare their performances in a medical diagnosis classification problem, namely Aachen Aphasia Test. Given the fact that the comparison is conducted on a single data set; the conclusions are by no means inclusive. However, we believe that the results might provide some valuable insights.


A verification approach for dynamics of metamodel based conceptual models of the mission space
Eryılmaz, Utkan; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2011)
Conceptual models were introduced in the simulation world in order to describe the problem domain in detail before any implementation is attempted. One of the recent approaches for conceptual modeling of the military mission space is the KAMA approach which provides a process description, a UML based notation, and a supporting tool for developing conceptual models. The prominence of the approach stems from availability of guidance and applications in real life case studies. Although the credibility of a con...
A Numerical Comparison of Frozen-Time and Forward-Propagating Riccati Equations for Stabilization of Periodically Time-Varying Systems
Prach, Anna; Tekinalp, Ozan; Bernstein, Dennis S. (2014-12-06)
Feedback control of linear time-varying systems arises in numerous applications. In this paper we numerically investigate and compare the performance of two heuristic techniques. The first technique is the frozen-time Riccati equation, which is analogous to the state-dependent Riccati equation, where the instantaneous dynamics matrix is used within an algebraic Riccati equation solved at each time step. The second technique is the forward-propagating Riccati equation, which solves the differential algebraic...
A new likelihood approach to autonomous multiple model estimation
Söken, Halil Ersin (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-01)
This paper presents an autonomous multiple model (AMM) estimation algorithm for hybrid systems with sudden changes in their parameters. Estimates of Kalman filters (KFs) that are tuned and employed for different system modes are merged based on a newly defined likelihood function without any necessity for filter interaction. The proposed likelihood function is composed of two measures, the filter agility measure and the steady-state error measure. These measures are derived based on filter adaptation rules....
A finite field framework for modeling, analysis and control of finite state automata
Reger, Johann; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Informa UK Limited, 2004-09-01)
In this paper, we address the modeling, analysis and control of finite state automata, which represent a standard class of discrete event systems. As opposed to graph theoretical methods, we consider an algebraic framework that resides on the finite field F-2 which is defined on a set of two elements with the operations addition and multiplication, both carried out modulo 2. The key characteristic of the model is its functional completeness in the sense that it is capable of describing most of the finite st...
Continuous-time nonlinear estimation filters using UKF-aided gaussian sum representations
Gökçe, Murat; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
A nonlinear filtering method is developed for continuous-time nonlinear systems with observations/measurements carried out in discrete-time by means of UKFaided Gaussian sum representations. The time evolution of the probability density function (pdf) of the state variables (or the a priori pdf) is approximated by solving the Fokker-Planck equation numerically using Euler’s method. At every Euler step, the values of the a priori pdf are evaluated at deterministic sample points. These values are used with Ga...
