Following the invention of the United States through Columbus in 1492, eu colonists introduced their method of fortification to the hot global in an try to be sure their security and consolidate their conquests. French and British explorers got here later to North the United States, and hence the institution in their large settlements simply acquired lower than approach in the course of the seventeenth century. The population of latest France equipped complicated fortifications to guard their cities and towns. This e-book offers a close exam of the defenses of 4 of them: Québec, Montréal and Louisbourg in Canada, and New Orleans in Louisiana.

1. 3 Fuzzy Set-valued Random Elements 39 (ii) The support {x : A( x) ! 0} of A is bounded. (iii) The D -level set AD of A are closed intervals From the above definition, it is not hard to show that? (a) Real numbers are fuzzy numbers. e. AD is closed, D  >0,1@ . e. intervals). As stated above, the use of intervals and their arithmetic is appropriate in some situations involving imprecision. When the intervals themselves are not sharply defined, we arrive at the concept of fuzzy intervals. e. x  R such that A( x) 1 ).

3 Fuzzy Relations 27 For negation operators, we can also consider the class of operators K : [0,1] o [0,1] , such that: (a) K (0) 1, K (1) 0 (b) K is non-increasing (c) K ( K (x)) = x similarly, fuzzy implication operators are generalizations of material implication operator of two-valued logic. Specifically, a fuzzy implication is a map Ÿ: [0,1] u [0,1] o [0,1] , where restriction to {0,1} u {0,1} coincides with the truth table of the material implication. Some examples are ­1 if x d y (i) ( x Ÿ y ) = ® ¯0 if x !

Such a partition is referred to as a coarsening of X. Providing a model for observing X. If we consider the set-valued map S(w) = the element of the partition containing X(w), then S is formally a random set with probability density P( S Ai ) = P ( X  Ai ) , i=1,…,k Thus, coarse data are actually observations of random sets which are special cases of random fuzzy sets. The following is an example of statistical estimation in the context of coarse data. For details, see [38]. Suppose the random variable X admits a probability density function f ( x | T ) , where T  4 Ž R .
