Rough Sets: Selected Methods and Applications in Management and Engineering

Front Cover
Georg Peters, Pawan Lingras, Dominik Ślȩzak, Yiyu Yao
Springer Science & Business Media, Feb 22, 2012 - Computers - 214 pages

Rough Set Theory, introduced by Pawlak in the early 1980s, has become an important part of soft computing within the last 25 years. However, much of the focus has been on the theoretical understanding of Rough Sets, with a survey of Rough Sets and their applications within business and industry much desired. Rough Sets: Selected Methods and Applications in Management and Engineering provides context to Rough Set theory, with each chapter exploring a real-world application of Rough Sets.

Rough Sets is relevant to managers striving to improve their businesses, industry researchers looking to improve the efficiency of their solutions, and university researchers wanting to apply Rough Sets to real-world problems.
