The Physics of Animal Life
Author: Matin Durrani,Liz Kalaugher
Pubpsher: Bloomsbury Publishing
The animal world is full of mysteries. Why do dogs slurp from their drinking bowls while cats lap up water with a delicate flick of the tongue? How does a tiny turtle hatchling from Florida circle the entire northern Atlantic before returning to the very beach where it hatched? And how can a Komodo dragon kill a water buffalo with a bite only as strong as a domestic cat's? These puzzles – and many more besides – are all explained by physics. From heat and light to electricity and magnetism, Furry Logic unveils the ways that more than 30 animals exploit physics to eat, drink, mate and dodge death in their daily battle for survival. Along the way, science journalists Matin Durrani and Liz Kalaugher introduce the great physicists whose discoveries helped us understand the animal world, as well as the animal experts of today who are scouring the planet to find and study the animals that seem to push the laws of physics to the limit. Presenting mind-bending physics principles in a simple and engaging way, Furry Logic will appeal both to animal lovers and to those curious to see how physics crops up in the natural world. It's more of a 'howdunit' than a whodunit, though you're unlikely to guess some of the answers.
The adorable and high-profile Furry Logic series celebrates its 10th anniversary with a menagerie of illustrated animals and hilarious sayings about life, love, and everything in between. No one understands the ups and downs of life's little challenges better than the frisky critters of Furry Logic. The inspirational and tongue-in-cheek advice from series creator Jane Seabrook and her plucky animal characters will tickle the fancy and the funnybone of readers everywhere. Each intricately illustrated spread features a member of the animal kingdom with a unique take on life, from the adorably grumpy owl who advises "Smile first thing in the morning. Get it over with" to the fluffy hawk who admonishes, "If at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished." So join the original flock of penguins, bears, frogs, and more in celebrating a decade of wit and wisdom with ten new illustrated spreads for fans looking for fresh inspiration. From the Hardcover edition.

Implementation and Applications
Author: Marek J. Patyra,Daniel J. Mlynek
Pubpsher: Springer Science & Business Media
Category: Technology & Engineering
This edited volume contains ten papers on the subject of fuzzy technology. Fuzzy technology emerged as a combination of fuzzy sets theory, fuzzy logic and fuzzy-based reasoning. As a technology it gained a very practical meaning through thousands of applications in different theoretical as well as practical disciplines, covering mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, life science, social science, economy, computer science, and (foremost) electrical, electronic, mechanical, nuclear, chemical, textile, aeronautic, ocean, and many other engineering disciplines. The goal of this book is to create an interest in fuzzy technology among researchers, engineers, professionals and students involved in the research and development in the broad area of artificial intelligence. This book is also intended to bring the reader up-to-date in the area of implementations and applications of fuzzy technology, as well as to generate and stimulate new research ideas in this area. It may inspire and motivate the researcher in new directions, as well as creating a force for new efforts to make a fuzzy technology commonly known and used in science and engineering. This volume appears at a time of unprecedented research interest in the field of fuzzy technology. I intentionally wrote research due to the events that have occurred during the last couple of years. To be more specific, I should describe this interest geographically.
The long-awaited follow-up title to FURRY LOGIC A GUIDE TO LIFE'S LITTLE CHALLENGES offers another menagerie of cleverly rendered animals and the simple, yet deep ruminations that match these natural comedians. The artwork reflects a zoologist's understanding of animals matched with an illustrator's eye for colour and human nature, and these appealing images are deftly matched with exactly the right quotations - and clever, funny ones at that - to convey the meaning. Topics range from the challenges of relationships to the enjoyment of life's many and diverse pleasures.

A Practical Approach
Author: F. Martin McNeill,Ellen Thro
Pubpsher: Academic Press
Fuzzy Logic: A Practical Approach focuses on the processes and approaches involved in fuzzy logic, including fuzzy sets, numbers, and decisions. The book first elaborates on fuzzy numbers and logic, fuzzy systems on the job, and Fuzzy Knowledge Builder. Discussions focus on formatting the knowledge base for an inference engine, personnel detection system, using a knowledge base in an inference engine, fuzzy business systems, industrial fuzzy systems, fuzzy sets and numbers, and quantifying word-based rules. The text then elaborates on designing a fuzzy decision and Fuzzy Thought Amplifier for complex situations. Topics include origins of cognitive maps, Fuzzy Thought Amplifier, training a map to predict the future, introducing the Fuzzy Decision Maker, and merging interests. The publication takes a look at fuzzy associative memory, fuzzy sets as hypercube points, and disk files and descriptions, including Fuzzy Thought Amplifier, Fuzzy Decision Maker, and composing and creating a memory. The text is a valuable source of data for researchers interested in fuzzy logic.
