Fuzzy Systems

Winter 2014/15


  • The exam is now revised. You can have a look at your exam on friday 13th of april 2015 between 9a.m. and 11a.m. in room G29-036 - the final grades will be determined afterwards.


General Information

This page contains information about the lecture "Fuzzy Systems" that is read by Prof. Dr. Rudolf Kruse in the winter 2014/15. It is updated during the course.

Fuzzy set theory is an extension of the classical set theory that can model imprecise and vague expressions of natural language such as big, small, hot, cold, etc. Fuzzy logic allows to formalize rules that contain such expressions of natural language. These rules can be utilized to support decision processes. The lecture "Fuzzy Systems" offers an introduction to both fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic. Moreover it deals with applications of control engineering, approximate inference, and data analysis.

Note that since "Fuzzy Systems" is a master course, both lecture and exercise will be given in english. There might be german assignment sheets on request.

Conditions for Certificate ("Schein") and Exam

A new assignment sheet containing written and programming assignments is published on this web page every week. The written assignments must me ticked of at the beginning of every exercise. Ticking off an assignment means that you are willing and able to explain and present the assignment and your solution proposal (which do not need to be completely correct. However, you should be prepared thoroughly in order to solve the assignment).

Programming assignments must be submitted in electronic form to Christoph Doell. Latest submission is possible until three days before the corresponding exercise day at 8:00 a.m. Later submissions will not be accepted. The programs must run properly in Java, Python or C++. Submissions can be performed as teams of up to three students, as long as all team members are named in the submission and every single team member is able to present the solution.

The graded or ungraded certificate for this course is issued to students who

  • regularly contribute well in the exercises,
  • tick off at least one half of all written assignments,
  • present at least twice a solution to a written assignment during the exercise,
  • submit at least twice a running implementation of a programming assignment, and
  • finally pass the exam after the course.

Note that graded exams have to be officially announced to the examination office by using HISQIS.

The written exam is scheduled on monday, february the 9th 2015 in the FIN auditorium (G29-307) from 12:00 until 14:00 o'clock. Be there at least 10 minutes before it will start. The following auxiliary means you may bring to and use for the exam:

  • a non-programmable calculator (although you won't need any),
  • a blue or black pen,
  • a ruler,
  • a pencil.

We will issue paper to write on.

Also do not forget to bring your personal and your student ID, so that we can verify your personality.
