On November 10, 2022 at 14:00 EET, Andrea Sgarro (DMG University of Trieste) will give a talk in the Logic Seminar.
Title: Possibility theory and the arithmetic of fuzzy numbers
Abstract: Taking inspiration from the seminal work in probability theory by A. N. Kolmogorov and H. R. Pitt, we intend to lay a sound foundation for fuzzy arithmetic, which is based on possibility theory beside fuzzy logic. A possibilistic interpretation of fuzzy arithmetic has long been known, however without taking it to its full consequences: in this paper we stress the basic role of the two limit-cases of possibilistic interactivity, namely deterministic equality versus non-interactivity, thus getting rid of weak points which have so far enfeebled more traditional approaches to fuzzy arithmetic.
The talk will take place physically at FMI Hall 214 “Google”.
