S4 class Representing a Fuzzy Number with Sides Given by Power Functions

Description

Bodjanova-type fuzzy numbers which sides are given by power functions are defined using four coefficients a1 <= a2 <= a3 <= a4, and parameters p.left, p.right>0, which determine exponents for the side functions.

Details

We have left(x)=x^p.left, and right(x)=(1-x)^p.right.

This class is a natural generalization of trapezoidal FNs. For other see PiecewiseLinearFuzzyNumber.

Slots

a1, a2, a3, a4, lower, upper, left, right:

Inherited from the FuzzyNumber class.

p.left:

single numeric value; 1.0 for a trapezoidal FN.

p.right:

single numeric value; 1.0 for a trapezoidal FN.

Extends

Class FuzzyNumber, directly.
