in . A question which arises is: Why is there so much interest and activity in the realm of neurofuzzy systems? What is it that neurofuzzy systems can do that cannot be done equally well by other types of systems? To understand the underlying issues. Hayashi obtained a basic patent in Japan. neurofuzzy systems. "Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application. .. rough set theory. What is soft computing? In science. . soft computing is a coalition of methodologies which are tolerant of imprecision. design and utilization of intelligent systems. uncertainty and partial truth. design and utilization of fuzzy neural networks. and which collectively provide a foundation for conception. A basic credo which underlies soft computing is that. Liu and H. Essentially. have a long history. N are complementary methodologies. FNTTA is a treatise that deals authoritatively and in depth with the basic issues and problems that arise in the conception. probabilistic computing. Takagi and I. evolutionary computing. there was little activity until 1988. which was published in 1975. The embryo was a paper on fuzzy neurons by my former student. Much of the theory developed in FNTTA goes considerably beyond what can be found in the literature. Fuzzy neural networks.. What is quite obvious is that if A. assigned to Matsushita.

Today. neurocomputing." or FNNTA for short. as in many other realms of human activity. then much can be gained by forming a coalition of A. especially in the realm of consumer products. The pioneering work of Takagi and Hayashi opened the door to development of a wide variety of neurofuzzy systems. Thereafter. namely. Li. it is helpful to view neurofuzzy systems in a broader perspective. A case in point is the well-known Hammer Principle: When the only tool you have is a hammer. which described systems in which techniques drawn from fuzzy logic and neural networks were employed in combination to achieve superior performance. as they are frequently called. B. or more or less equivalently.. Ed Lee.Foreword Authored by Professors P. when H. chaotic computing and machine learning. In this perspective. there is an extensive literature and a broad spectrum of applications. there is a tendency to be nationalistic-to commit oneself to a particular methodology and employ it exclusively. B. Another version is what I call the Vodka Principle: No matter what your problem is.. N.. in the context of soft computing.. everything looks like a nail.

A question which arises is: Does the theory of universal approximation come to grips with problems which arise in the design of fuzzy neural networks in realistic settings? I believe that this issue is in need of further exploration. What should be noted is that the basic idea underlying this approach is applicable to any type of algorithm in which human expertise plays an essential role in choosing parameter-values and controlling their variation as a function of performance. In particular. Bortolan— involves a fuzzification of a multilayer. my feeling is that the usual assumption about continuity of the function that is approximated. fuzzy if-then rules are employed as a language for describing human expertise. An important type of neurofuzzy system which was pioneered by Arabshahi et al starts with a neuro-based algorithm such as the backpropagation algorithm. is too weak. in particular. feedforward neural network. inheriting from neurocomputing the concepts and techniques related to learning and approximation. Clearly. Parameter adjustment in such systems is achieved through the use of gradient techniques which are very similar to those associated with backpropagation. The widely used method of radical basis functions falls into the same category.Xll Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application general. Much of the material in FNNTA is original with the authors and reflects their extensive experience. a student of mine who conceived ANFIS as a part of his doctoral dissertation at UC Berkeley. universal approximation is an issue that is of great theoretical interest. What is particularly worthy of note is the author's treatment of universal approximation of fuzzy-valued functions. FNN. extending from the basics of FNN and FAM (fuzzy associate memories) to approximation theory of fuzzy systems. In such applications. A prominent example is the ANFIS system developed by Roger Jang. with smoothness denned as a fuzzy characteristic. Another important direction which emerged in the early nineties involves viewing a Takaga-Sugeno fuzzy inference system as a multilayer network which is similar to a multilayer neural network. fuzzy if-then rules and rules of inference and constraint propagation. In this broader perspective. resulting in a fuzzy neural network. universal approximation. and inheriting from fuzzy logic the concepts and techniques related to granulation. The coverage is both broad and deep. stochastic fuzzy systems and application to image restoration. A basic issue that has a position of centrality in fuzzy neural network theory—and is treated as such by the authors— is that of approximation and. that . Still another important direction—a direction initiated by G. and improves its performance by employing fuzzy if-then rules for adaptive adjustment of parameters. and that the problem of approximation of functions which are smooth. It is this direction that is the principal concern of the work of Professors Liu and Li. neurofuzzy systems may be viewed as the domain of a synergistic combination of neurocomputing and fuzzy logic. better results can be obtained by employing the constituent methodologies of soft computing in combination rather in a stand-alone mode. linguistic variable. rather than continuous.

In practice. fuzzy logic and neural networks together with genetic algorithm and probabilistic reasoning [68-71]. To simulate biological control mechanisms. efficiently and to understand biological computational power. neural computing with learning and curve fitting.1 Classification of fuzzy neural networks As a main ingredient of soft computing. and without solving any complex integral. soft computing is to exploit the tolerance for imprecision. In the partnership of fuzzy logic. fuzzy logic is mainly concerned with imprecision and approximate reasoning. a biological control mechanism can carry out complex tasks without having to develop some mathematical models. §1.CHAPTER I Introduction As information techniques including their theory and applications develop further. C. In [36. 37] Lee S. and Lee E. The soft computing techniques can provide us with an efficient computation tool to deal with the highly nonlinear and complicated systems [67]. 61]. neural computing. fuzzy neural network (FNN) is a hybrid intelligent system that possess the capabilities of adjusting adaptively and intelligent information processing. developed a fuzzy associa- . fuzzy logic and neural computation and so on. such as adaptive control. and probabilistic reasoning with uncertainty and belief propagation. such as fuzzy logic.

So such novel neural systems had not attracted any attention until 1987 when Kosko B. uncertainty and partly truth to achieve tractability. neural computing and probabilistic reasoning. probabilistic reasoning and genetic algorithm (GA) and so on. Those techniques take their source at Zadeh's soft data analysis. it is extremely difficult to make an artificial mobile robot to perform the same tasks with vague and imprecise information for the robot involves a fusion of most existing control techniques. thoroughly a few of powerful fields in modern technology have recently emerged [30. However. firstly proposed the fuzzy neurons and some systematic results on FNN's were developed by softening the McCulloch-Pitts neurons in the middle 1970s when the interest in neural networks faltered. T. the studying objects related have become highly nonlinear and complicated systems. differential or any other types of mathematical equations.

The achievements related to FAM's . In practice FNN's have found useful in many application fields. Feedback neural networks (1990's).2 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application tive memory (FAM) to deal with intelligent information by introducing some fuzzy operators in associative memory networks [32]. for in practice many fuzzy patterns to handle are inherently imprecise and distorted. J. A lot of new new concepts. Equally. So storage capability and fault-tolerance are two main problems we focus on in the research on FAM's.1: Based on fuzzy operators < Feedforward neural networks (1980's). 42].e. So far many learning algorithms. Since the early 1980s the research on neural networks has increased dramatically because of the works done by Hopfield J. for instance. T . (see [26]).2 Fuzzy neural networks with fuzzy operators FNN's based on fuzzy operators are firstly studied by Lee and Lee in 1970s. It possesses the capability of storing and recalling fuzzy information or fuzzy patterns [32. Fuzzy inference networks < Takagi-Sugeno type (1990's). pattern recognition [33. as many fuzzy patterns as possible can be stored in a FAM. one may broadly classify all FNN models as three main types as shown in Figure 1. i. system modelling [16. The research on feedforward FAM's. and knowledge engineering and so on. system reliability analysis [7. A FAM is a feedforward FNN whose information flows from input layer to output layer. Mamdani type (1990's). the fuzzy delta rule and the fuzzy back propagation (BP) algorithm and so on have been developed to train FAM's and to improve storage capability of a FAM [32]. Such FNN's have become one of the foci in neural network research since Kosko introduced the fuzzy operators ' V and 'A' in associative memory to define fuzzy associative memory (FAM) in 1987. 41]. Based on fuzziness involved in FNN's developed since the late of 1980s. including their topological architecture designs. including the fuzzy Hebbian rule. 32. fault-tolerance. 24]. learning algorithms and so on attracts much attention [41]. 61]. 56]. the capability of a FAM to recall the right fuzzy pattern from a distorted input is of real importance. In practice a applicable FAM should possess strong storage capability. such as innovative architecture and training rules and models about FNN's have been developed [30. i.e. „. The FNN models have also attracted many scholars' attention. the selection of fuzzy operators for defining the internal operations.1 Classification of FNN's §1. Regular FNN's (1990's). Figure 1. T Fuzzified neural networks • FNN < Improved FNN's (1990's). Generalized type (1990's).

It imitates human brain in understanding objective world. In the book we focus mainly on two classes of dynamical FNN's. The fuzzy ART model developed by Carpenter et al in [11] generalizes ART1 to be capable of learning stable recognition categories in response to both analog and binary input patterns. The research related to fuzzy ART is mainly focused on the classification characteristics and applications to pattern recognition in all kinds of applied fields. It has since led to an evolving series of realtime neural network models for unsupervised category learning and pattern recognition. the feedforward FAM's can identify a fuzzy relation by designing suitable learning algorithm. The model families include ART1. Li and Ruan in [38] use FAM's based on several fuzzy operator pairs including 'V — A'. they show the convergence of fuzzy delta type iteration algorithms. which is presented in Chapter II. many methods for solving fuzzy relational equations are employed to improve the storage capability of FAM's. which can process patterns expressed as vectors whose components are either 0 or 1 [8]. By the comparison between the two dynamical FNN's and the corresponding crisp neural networks . 'V — x'. These constitute one of the main parts in Chapter II. On the other hand. of distributed recognition codes in a multi-level network hierarchy [10]. pattern classification [41. such as pattern recognition [33. they are fuzzy Hopfield networks and fuzzy bidirectional associative memory (FBAM). 58]. ART2 which can categorize either analog or binary input patterns [9]. Pedrycz in [51] put forward two logic type fuzzy neurons based on general fuzzy operators. A main object of the research on FAM's is to improve the storage capability. and ART3 which can carry out parallel search. A feedback neural network as a dynamical system finishes information processing by iterating repeatedly from an initial input to the equilibrium state. 5] express a fuzzy system as a fuzzy relational equation. some learning algorithms for improving storage capability of FAM's are developed. Blanco et al in [4. and such FAM's can be applied to realize fuzzy logic relations efficiently. So the recalling procedure of a dynamical FNN is in nature a process that the FNN evolutes to its equilibrium state from an initial fuzzy pattern. Furthermore. Liu et al utilize the approaches for solving fuzzy relational equations to build a series of equivalent conditions that a given fuzzy pattern family can be stored by a FAM [41]. 59]. Another important case of FNN's based on fuzzy operators is one of feedback FNN's. system analysis [38]. In practice. or hypothesis testing. an equilibrium state of a dynamical FNN turns out to be the right fuzzy pattern to recall. ' + — x' and ' + .A' etc to identify many fuzzy system classes by building a few of novel learning algorithms. signal processing [27] and so on. which relates closely to fuzzy relational equation theory. thus.Chapter I Introduction 3 have found useful in many applied areas. The fuzzy operators 'V' and 'A' are employed to define the operations between fuzzy patterns. Moreover. Adaptive resonance theory (ART) is an efficient neural model of human cognitive information processing. which is a procedure of self-improving again and again.

by the BP algorithm we obtain the a—cuts Wai. One most important class of fuzzified neural networks is regular FNN class. the systematic achievements related have been built by focusing mainly on two basic problem—learning algorithm and universal approximation.1 Learning algorithm for regular F N N ' s There are two main approaches to design learning algorithms for regular FNN's. So the dynamical FNN's may be applied much more widely than the crisp networks may. the a—cut learning algorithm loses its effectiveness frequently since for a i . Thus. §1. However.1]. and the genetic algorithm (GA) for fuzzy weights [2]. Wa2> a n d if no constraint is added. 5]. which may achieve by the fuzzy operators 'V. In practice. each of which is the fuzzifications of a crisp feedforward neural network. the topological architecture is identical to one of the corresponding crisp neural network. 2. And therefore the fuzzy set W can not be defined. Since regular FNN's were put forward by Buckley et al [6] and Ishibuchi et al [28] about in 1990s. the fuzzy connection weights of the regular FNN is trained suitably. Similarly with crisp dynamical networks. So for a regular FNN.4 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application we can see 1. including the global stability of dynamical systems and Lyapounov stability of the equilibrium state (attractor). So in order to ensure the effectiveness of the algorithm . the stability analysis. The main ideas for the a—cut learning algorithm rest with the fact that for any a £ [0. 41]. they are a—cut learning [28.3.3 Fuzzified neural networks A fuzzified neural network means such a FNN whose inputs. in the research related to the dynamical FNN's. for a main function of the transfer function in artificial neural networks lies in controlling output range. Those problems will be studied thoroughly in Chapter III. it is much insufficient to represent fuzzy information by the strings only consisting of 0. which is also viewed as a pure fuzzy system [61]. we utilize the BP algorithm for crisp neural networks to determine the two endpoints of a—cut and consequently establish the a—cut of a fuzzy weight. the fact Wa^CWai can not be guaranteed. The FNN's do not need the transfer function used in the crisp networks. 1] to describe fuzzy information. the attractive basins of attractors and the discrimination of attractors and pseudoattractors and so on are main subjects to study. and 'A' is a threshold function [4. «2 £ [0. 1. and then define the fuzzy weight. a fuzzy input can determines a fuzzy output. and the internal operations are based on Zadeh's extension principle [44] and fuzzy arithmetic [20]. 1] : a\ < «2. 'A'. Through the internal relationships among fuzzy sets of a fuzzified neural network. 1. We should utilize fuzzy patterns whose components belong to [0. outputs and connection weights are all fuzzy set.

Apply the results in [73] to analyze the V — A operations fully and to develop a rigorous theory for the calculus of V and A operations are two subsidiary results in Chapter IV. Park et al in [50] study the inverse procedure of the learning for a regular FNN. approximately..Chapter I Introduction 5 it is necessary to solve the following optimization problem: min{E(Wi. Another difficulty to hinder the realization of the a . that is. using the desired fuzzy outputs of the FNN to establish conversely the conditions for the corresponding fuzzy inputs. And if x = a.. we may choose the fuzzy weights as some common fuzzy numbers such as triangular fuzzy numbers. However.1] : an < a 2 . a common method to define E(-) is to introduce some constraints on the fuzzy connection weights.c u t learning algorithm is to define a suitable error function E(-) [41]. x > a. d(x A a) _ j 1.t.1) is generally insolvable. so that not only its minimization can ensure to realize the given input—output (I/O) relationship. Above representations are only valid for special case x ^ a. but also its derivatives related are easy to calculate. x < a. trapezoidal fuzzy numbers to develop some a—cut learning algorithms for training the fuzzy weights of regular FNN's.Wn are fuzzy sets}. To avoid solve (1. Aliev et . ..1). s. dx 1 0. systematically. dx 1 0. Based on these two derivative formulas. The GA's for fuzzy weights are also developed for such fuzzy sets that they can be determined uniquely by a few of adjustable parameters when it is possible to code fuzzy weights and to ensure one to one correspondence between a code sequence in GA and fuzzy connection weights. Solution of such a problem rest in nature with treating the a—cut learning. For instance. That is. let d(x V a) _ J 1. An indispensable step to construct the fuzzy BP algorithm is to differentiate V — A operations by using the unit step function. for the given real constant a. V a i . and lack rigorous mathematical sense. Q 2 G [0.1) in some special cases the corresponding solving procedure will be extremely complicated. And some successful applications of regular FNN's in the approximate realization of fuzzy inference rules are demonstrated in [28]. trapezoidal fuzzy numbers and Gaussian type fuzzy numbers and so on. This is a fuzzy version of the corresponding problem for crisp neural networks [39].n}.—. Ishibuchi et al utilize the triangular or. two important operations 'V' and 'A' are often involved. ( ^ ) Q 2 C ( ^ ) a i ' where E(-) is an error function. If no constraint is added. x > a. they are no longer valid. no matter how different fuzzy weights and error functions these learning algorithms have. which can be determined by a few of adjustable parameters.:. for instance..Wn )\Wi.

The transfer function a related is assumed to be an increasing real function. and obtain some new results by studying the computational aspects and training algorithms for the approximation problem. The subject constitutes one of central parts of Chapter IV. It is shown that a three-layer feedforward neural network with a given nonlinear activation function in the hidden layer is capable of approximating generic class of functions. 57]. The applications of the learning algorithms are much restricted. including continuous and integrable ones [13. 14. 1. / can be represented with arbitrarily given degree of accuracy e > 0 by a feedforward crisp neural network. and adaptive filtering [52]. Since the middle 1990s many authors have begun to paid their attentions to the similar approximation problems in fuzzy environment [6. system identification [14]. Regardless of a—cut learning algorithm and GA for the fuzzy weights of regular FNN's they are efficient only for a few of special fuzzy numbers. 28. The research in this field is at its infancy and many fundamental problems. The achievements related to the field have not only solved the approximation representation of some multivariate functions by the combination of finite compositions of one-variable functions. Gaussian type fuzzy numbers and so on.6 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application al in [2] employ simple GA to train the triangular fuzzy number weights and biases of regular FNN's. GA for fuzzy weights of regular FNN's within a general framework. The research related has attracted many scholars since the late 1980s. Firstly Buckley et al in [6] study systematically the universal approximation . such as the approximation of structural synthesis [57]. how to define a suitable error function? what more efficient code techniques can be employed and what are the more efficient genetic strategies? and so on remain to be solved. Recently Scarselli and Tsoi [57] present a detail survey of recent works on the approximation by feedforward neural networks. etc.2 Universal approximation of regular F N N ' s Another basic problem for regular FNN's is the universal approximation. that is. which can provide us with the theoretic basis for the FNN applications.3. 22. we have to build learning algorithms for general fuzzy weights. To speed the convergence of the fuzzy BP algorithm we develop a fuzzy conjugate gradient (CG) algorithm [18] to train a regular FNN with general fuzzy weights. such as triangular or trapezoidal fuzzy numbers. 41]. but also found useful in many real fields. They encode all fuzzy weights as a binary string (chromosome) to complete the search process. And therefore it is meaningful and important to develop the BP type learning algorithms or. such as. pattern classification [25]. The approximate representation of a continuous function by a three layer feedforward network can with the approximate sense solve the 13—th Hilbert problem with a simple approach [57]. and Kolmogorov had to employ a complicated approach to solve the problem analytically in 1950s [57]. The universal approximation of crisp feedforward neural networks means such a fact that for any compact set U of the input space and any continuous function / defined on the input space.

To solve the universal approximation of regular FNN's completely. and do not answer the second problem. §1. whose topological architectures are identical to the corresponding crisp ones. Considering the arbitrariness of a hybrid FNN in its architectures and internal operations. However. for example fuzzy regression models [28]. However these results solve only the first problem partly. Corresponding to different practical problems the respective hybrid FNN's with different topological architectures and internal operations have to be constructed [6]. Thus some important questions arise.Chapter I Introduction 7 of FNN's and obtain such a fact: Hybrid FNN's can be approximator to fuzzy functions while regular FNN's are not capable of approximating continuous fuzzy functions to any degree of accuracy on the compact sets of a general fuzzy number space.4 Fuzzy systems and fuzzy inference networks Fuzzified neural networks as a class of pure fuzzy systems can deal with . It is difficult to employ similar approaches for dealing with crisp feedforward neural networks to solve above problems for regular FNN's. And some realization algorithms for approximating procedure are built. have found convenient and useful in many applications. We establish some sufficient conditions for fuzzy valued functions defined on an interval [0. internal operations are based on extension principle and fuzzy arithmetic. the natural inference of human brain. Regular FNN's have become the efficient tools to model these real processes. telecommunication networks [42] and so on are the successful examples of regular FNN applications. Above problems attract many scholars' attention. 30]. What are the conditions for continuous fuzzy functions that can be arbitrarily closely approximated by regular FNN's? that is. regular FNN's. and build the approximate representations of a class of trapezoidal fuzzy functions by regular FNN's. Also they employ the approximation of the regular FNN's with trapezoidal fuzzy number inputs and connection weights to solve the overfitting problem. In practice many I/O relationships whose internal operations are characterized by fuzzy sets are inherently fuzzy and imprecise. data fitting models [22]. Then Feuring et al in [22] restrict the inputs of regular FNN's as trapezoidal fuzzy numbers. industrial process control. Chapter IV and Chapter V develop comprehensive and thorough discussion to above problems. For instance. which function class can guarantee universal approximation of regular FNN's to hold? Whether the corresponding equivalent conditions can be established? Since the inputs and outputs of regular FNN's are fuzzy sets. we find such a FNN is inconvenient for realizations and applications. T0] that ensure universal approximation of three layer regular FNN's to hold [41]. At first Buckley and Hayashi [6] show a necessary condition for the fuzzy functions that can be approximated arbitrarily closely by regular FNN's. chemical reaction and natural evolution process and so on [17. that is. the fuzzy functions are increasing. the common operation laws do not hold any more.

much more cases relate to data information... 61]. Using fuzzy inference networks we may represent a fuzzy system as the I/O relationship of a neural system.1 Fuzzy s y s t e m s In practice there are common three classes of fuzzy systems [30. The rule consequent forms of a Mamdani fuzzy system are fuzzy sets while ones corresponding to a T-S fuzzy system are functions of the system input variables. And data information constitutes the external conditions that may adjust system parameters.. From a real fuzzy system we can get a collection of data information that characterizes its I/O relationship by digital sensor or data surveying instrument. Therefore.4. In a fuzzy system we can deal with linguistic information by developing a family of fuzzy inference rules such as 'IF. 61]. 53. Mamdani fuzzy systems and Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy systems. 56]. synthetically. 35.'. so it is of very real importance to develop some systematic tools that are able to utilize linguistic and data information. In practice. As in the research of neural networks we study the applications of fuzzy systems and fuzzy inference networks by taking their universal approximation as a start point. 24].2 Fuzzy s y s t e m a r c h i t e c t u r e 1. p u r e fuzzy s y s t e m fuzzy rule base input x fuzzifier singleton fuzzy inference fuzzy output crisp output defuzzifier Y yo F i g u r e 1.THEN.. As shown in . in the following let us take the research on approximating capability of fuzzy systems and fuzzy inference networks as a thread to present a survey to theory and application of this two classes of systems. and therefore fuzzy systems also possess the function of self-learning and self-improving. We can distinguish a Mamdani fuzzy system and a T-S fuzzy system by their inference rule consequents. 60]. system modelling and identification [16. automatic control [30. they are pure fuzzy systems. signal processing [12. rationally. 33. fuzzy systems and fuzzy inference networks have attracted much attention for they have found useful in many applied fields such as pattern recognition [30. in addition to linguistic information. data compression [47] and telecommunication [42] and so on. Since recent twenty years. Pure fuzzy systems deal mainly with linguistic information while the latter two fuzzy systems can handle both linguistic information and data information [61].8 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application natural linguistic information efficiently. Fuzzy systems take an important role in the research related. including the membership functions of fuzzy sets and denazification etc.

S{YN(y))---)).. S(Y2(y). Ying et al in [65] employ a general denazification [23] to generalize Mamdani fuzzy systems and T-S fuzzy systems. the fuzzy sets are Gaussian type fuzzy numbers. how can the approximating procedure of fuzzy systems express the given I/O relationship? How is the accuracy related estimated? With the given accuracy how can the size of the fuzzy rule base of the corresponding fuzzy system be calculated? and so on. 65. since it can not deal with many importantly practical problems such as... that is. and an approximating fuzzy system with the given accuracy may be established accordingly. 62. we may directly build the approximating fuzzy systems related by the constructive procedures. Moreover. Using the fuzzy rule Rj and the implication relation we can establish a fuzzy set Yj denned on the output space [30].. that is. that is. So the constructive methods can be more efficient and applicable. the inference composition rules and denazification..RNFor a given input vector x. the existence of the fuzzy systems is shown by the StoneWeierstrass Theorem [30. such a way gives the strong restrictions to the antecedent fuzzy sets. where T is a t—norm. 72].. Zeng et al in [72] propose some accuracy analysis methods for fuzzy system approximation. Up to the present the research on the related problems focuses on the approximations of the fuzzy systems to the continuous functions and the realization of such approximations. • ••. Although the related achievements are of much . We call Y a synthesizing fuzzy set [30]. Suppose the fuzzy rule base is composed of N fuzzy rules R\. the compositions are based on 'J^ — x' or 'V — x'. The internal structures of the pure fuzzy system are determined by a sequence of fuzzy inference rules. Recent years the research related has attracted many scholars' attention. Moreover. Another is the constructive proving method. universal approximation has attracted much attention since the early 1990s [61.2 is the typical architecture of a fuzzy system. Finally we utilize the defuzzifizer De to establish the crisp output yo = DB(Y)As one of main subjects related to fuzzy systems. And some necessary conditions for fuzzy system approximation and their comparison are built. pure fuzzy system and defuzzifizer. 61]..9 Chapter I Introduction Figure 1. However its drawbacks are obvious. respectively. Such a approach may answer the existence problem of fuzzy systems under certain conditions. which consists of three parts: fuzzifizer. YN to determine the fuzzy set Y defined on the output space: Y(y) = S(Yi(y). One belongs to existential results. By a t-conorm S (generally is chosen as S = V) we synthesize Y\. That is. the fuzzy sets may be chosen as general fuzzy numbers with certain ranking order and the composition may be 'V — T". by fuzzifizer we can get a singleton fuzzy set x . the antecedent fuzzy sets and the composition fuzzy operators can be general. we can classify the achievements in the field into two classes. and the defuzzifier usually means the method of center of gravity..

that is the hierarchical fuzzy system. Recently the research on the properties of the artificial neural networks in the stochastic environment attracts many scholars' attention. and the achievements related have been successfully applied to many practical areas. the number of fuzzy rules needed in the hierarchical system is the linear function of the number of the input variables. the applications are usually limited to systems with very few variables. and he also in [63] gave the sensitivity properties of hierarchical fuzzy systems and designed a suitable system structure. Naturally we may put forward an important problem.10 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application real significance. Raju et al defined in [53] a new type of fuzzy system. in addition to continuous functions. There are many important and fundamental problems in the field remain to be solved. that is. how about the universal approximation of fuzzy systems to other general functions? For instance. which are linked in a hierarchical fashion. or integrable function / on U. Such a system is constructed by a series of lower dimensional fuzzy systems. the related systems are non-continuous. how may we find a hierarchical fuzzy system to approximate / uniformly with arbitrary error bounds el The third important problem is the fuzzy system approximations in stochastic environment.e. meaning that in a fuzzy system the number of fuzzy rules may exponentially increases as the number of the input variables of the system increases. in the control processes to many nonlinear optimal control models and the pulse circuits. for example. whether are hierarchical fuzzy systems universal approximator or not? If a function is continuously differentiable on the whole space. but integrable. particularly to the fuzzy control. Therefore the research in which the fuzzy systems are generalized within a general framework and more general functions. their application areas are definitely restricted. we may avoid the 'rule explosion'. The approximation capabilities of a class of neural networks to stochastic processes and the problem whether the neural networks are able to learn stochastic pro- . i. two or at most four input variables [62]. how may the representation capability of the hierarchical fuzzy systems be analyzed? Kikuchi et al in [31] show that it is impossible to give the precise expression of arbitrarily given continuous function by a hierarchical fuzzy system. are very important both in theory and in practice. So we have to analyze the approximation capability of hierarchical fuzzy systems. Another problem is 'Rule explosion' phenomenon that is caused by so called 'curse of dimensionality'. including integrable functions are approximately represented by the general fuzzy systems with arbitrary degree of accuracy. To realize the given fuzzy inferences. To overcome above drawbacks. For each compact set U and the arbitrarily continuous. First. Although the fuzzy system research has attracted many scholars' attention. Wang in [62] shows the arbitrarily close approximation of the function by hierarchical fuzzy systems. So 'rule explosion' do seriously hinder the applications of the fuzzy systems. consequently the system not implement able. Thus. the scale of the rule base of the fuzzy system is immediately becoming overmuch. When we increase the input variables.

such as system modeling [15. 56]. So a fuzzy system and its corresponding fuzzy inference network are functionally equivalent [30]. classification and detection of noise. many achievements have been achieved and they have found useful in many applied areas. within a general framework study the fuzzy inference networks. Since the early 1990s.4. Theoretically the research on fuzzy inference networks focuses mainly on three parts: First. by which a fuzzy system can be expressed as the I/O relationship of a neural system. Moreover.Chapter I Introduction 11 cesses are systematically studied. efficiently since they possess adaptiveness and fault-tolerance. 16]. Defuzzification constitutes one important object to study fuzzy inference networks and it attracts many scholars' attention. pattern recognition [58] and system forecasting [45] and so on. which is based on some general defuzzifier [54]. 54]. It is shown that the approximation identity neural networks can with mean square sense approximate a class of stochastic processes to arbitrary degree of accuracy. build some suitable learning algorithms. Thus. system identification [46. There are mainly four defuzzification methods. Third. The systematic study on above problems constitutes the central parts of Chapter VI and Chapter VII. it can adaptively adjust to adapt itself to the changes of conditions and to self-improve. many novel defuzzifications to the special subjects are put forward in recent years. that is. the approximation capabilities of fuzzy systems to stochastic processes. A fuzzy inference network is a multilayer feedforward network. As a organic fusion of inference system and neural network. The final problem is to estimate the size of the rule base of the approximating fuzzy system for the given accuracy. Also many well-designed simulation examples illustrate our results. the COG method synthesizes all . 1. The research related is the basis for constructing the related fuzzy systems. boundary detection for noise images. The fuzzy systems can simultaneously deal with data information and linguistic information. So it is undoubtedly very important to study the approximation in the stochastic environment. and p—mean method [55]. a— cut integral method. For example. so that the network architecture is as simple as possible [30].2 Fuzzy inference networks Fuzzy inference system can simulate and realize natural language and logic inference mechanic. Second. a fuzzy inference network can realize automobile generation and automobile matching of fuzzy rules. design a feedforward neural network to realize a known fuzzy system. Further. system modeling in noise environment and so on. maximum of mean(MOM) method [61]. In addition. they can successfully be applied to noise image processing. They have respective starting point and applying fields. they are center of gravity (COG) method [33. so that the connection weights are adjusted rationally to establish suitable antecedent and consequent fuzzy sets. also they have themselves advantages and disadvantages. fuzzy inference networks can deal with all kinds of information including linguistic information and data information.

are neglected. However. but it can not deal with non-additive Gaussian noise. Originally. 52]. There are two ways to achieve such an objective [3. image restoration included the subjects related to the first way only. system distortion. constructing digital filters to remove noises to restore the corrupted images resulted from noises. The research on how we can define denazifications and fuzzy inference networks within a general framework attracts much attention. So the research on nonlinear filters has been attracting many scholars' attention [3. Up to now many general defuzzifiers have been put forward [23. The MOM method takes only the points with maximum membership under consideration while the other points are left out of consideration. 60. 35. But this approach is highly nonlinear in nature and can not be characterized by traditional mathematical modeling. 61]. smooth non-impulse noises and enhance edges or other salient features of the image. whose statistic models are known. In practice. 60].5.1 Crisp nonlinear niters Rank selection (RS) filter is a useful nonlinear filtering model whose sim- . 1.5 Fuzzy techniques in image restoration The objective of image restoration is to reconstruct the image from degraded one resulted from system errors and noises and so on. the points with maximum membership. 55. So it is convenient to employ fuzzy techniques in image processing. To introduce some general principle for defuzzidication and to build a class of generalized fuzzy inference network within a general framework constitute a preliminary to study FNN application in image processing in Chapter VIII. 54. it is imperative to bring ambiguity and uncertainty in the acquisition or transmission of digital images.g. 66]. the definitions are too concrete to be generalized to general cases. §1. The related discussions appeared about in 1981 [48. The fuzzy set and fuzzy logic can be efficiently incorporated to do that. Another is called image enhancement. but not until 1994 did the systematic results related incurred. that is. 49]. they possess respective drawbacks: Either the general principles are too many to be applied conveniently or. And the inverse process may be applied to restore the degraded images. One may use human knowledge expressed heuristically in natural language to describe such images.12 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application actions of points in the support of the synthesizing fuzzy set to establish a crisp output while some special functions of some particular points e. Linear filter theory is an efficient tool to process additive Gaussian noise. and additive noises. especially in the filtering theory to remove system distortion and impulse noises. The a—cut integral and p—mean methods are two other mean summing forms for all points in the support of the synthesizing set. One is to model the corrupted image degraded by motion. Recently many scholars put the second way into the field of image restoration [12. Recently fuzzy techniques are efficiently applied in the field of image restoration.

Thus all RS type filters may be handled within a general framework [3]. For example. So fuzzy techniques may be used to improve the RS type filters from the following parts: extending output range. simultaneously. but it removes fine image structures. the complexity of the RCRS filter increases exponentially with the order (the length of operating window). 52]). soft decision and adaptive structure. Recent years fuzzy theory as a soft technique has been successfully applied in modeling degraded image and building noise filters. Such facts have spurred the development of fuzzy filters. Although the RCFS filter improves the performance of RCRS filter. When the noise probability exceeds 0. as a signal restoration model. The RCRS filter is built by introducing feature vector and rank selection operator. center weighted median filter. It utilize natural language. soft decision and fuzzy inference structure. which improve the performance of RS filters by extending output range. The guidance for building all kinds of RS type filters is that removing impulsive noise while keeping the fine image structure. etc (see [3.2 Fuzzy filters The RCRS filter can not overcome the drawbacks of median filter thoroughly since its ultimate output is still chosen from the gray levels in the operating window. in which the key part is to define suitable membership functions . To offer improved performance. It synthesizes all advantages of RS type filters. Moreover. soft decision or fuzzy inference structure are used to improve noise filters. Civanlar et al in [17] firstly establish an efficient image restoration model by soft decision. the RCRS filter can be generalized a new version—rank conditioned fuzzy selection (RCFS) filter [12].Chapter I Introduction 13 plest form is median filter [52]. median filter can result in poor filtering performance. also it can be generalized as the neural network filter. Extending output range means generalizing crisp filters within a fuzzy framework. By median filter. However. many generalizations of median filter have been developed.5. and stack filter. And so the image information may be used more efficiently. permutation filter. the problems similar to RCRS filter arise still. For example a RCRS filter may change the fine image structure while removing impulsive noise.5 it is difficult to get a restoration with good performance. rank conditioned rank selection (RCRS) filter. impulsive type noise can be suppressed. the RCRS filter possesses the advantage of utilizing rank condition and selection feature of sample set simultaneously. So in more cases. 1. Soft decision means that we may use fuzzy set theory to soften the constraint conditions for the digital image and to build the image restoration techniques. when the noise probability p > 0.5. their own shortcomings are not overcome. They include weighted order statistic filter. as well as the filtering capability. for the outputs of all these filters are the observation samples in the operating window of the image. although RS type filters improve median filter from different aspects. such as 'Dark' 'Darker' 'Medium' 'Brighter' 'Bright' and so on to describe gray levels of the image related. by fuzzifying the selection function as a fuzzy rank.

1 reports many useful dynamic properties of the fuzzy Hopfield networks by studying attractors and attractive basins. To take advantage of the adaptivity of neural systems we build two classes of iteration learning algorithms for the FAM. After recalling some fundamental concepts of ART1 we define a fuzzy version of ART1 through fuzzy operators 'V' and 'A'. Chapter II treats two classes of FNN models—feedforward fuzzy associative memory (FAM) for storing fuzzy patterns. respectively. such as Mamdani fuzzy systems. Moreover. which are dynamic FNN's. Some equivalent conditions that a given family of fuzzy pattern pairs can be stored in the FAM completely are established. which can also recall right fuzzy patterns stored. A fuzzy pattern related can be expressed as a vector whose components belong to [0. §3.7 Outline of the topics of the chapters The book tries to develop FNN theory through three main types of FNN models.1 build a novel feedforward FNN—FAM with threshold. and fuzzy adaptive resonance theory (ART) for classifying fuzzy patterns.3. They are FNN's based on fuzzy operators which are respectively treated in Chapter II and Chapter III. We characterize the classifying procedure of the fuzzy ART and develop some useful properties about how a fuzzy pattern is classified. which guarantees the FAM to store the given fuzzy pattern pair family is built. by which some correct fuzzy patterns may be recalled through some imprecise inputs. It is also shown that the dynamical systems are uniformly stable and their attractors are Lyapounov stable. §2. systematically.Chapter I Introduction 17 §1. T-S fuzzy systems and stochastic fuzzy systems and so on.4 focuses on a fuzzy classifying network—fuzzy ART. To improve the storage capability of a FAM. we in §2. Fuzzy inference networks being able to realize the common fuzzy systems. Fuzzified neural networks taking regular FNN's and polygonal FNN's as main components. . And based on fault-tolerance we develop an analytic learning algorithm. especially the FNN models and the learning algorithms related. In each chapter we take some simulation examples to illustrate the effectiveness of our results. In §3. respectively. which are called the fuzzy delta algorithm and the fuzzy BP algorithm in §2.2. that is. introduce a threshold to each neural unit in a FAM.4 the corresponding problems for FBAM's are analyzed. Many simulation examples are studied in detail to illustrate our conclusions. 1]. Chapter III deals with another type of FNN's based on fuzzy operators 'V and 'A'— feedback FAM's. Chapter VII and Chapter VIII. corresponding a crisp ARTMAP we propose its fuzzy version—fuzzy ARTMAP by joining two fuzzy ART's together. At first we show the fact that the FBAM's converge their equilibrium stables. which are handled in Chapter VI.3 and §3. an analytic learning algorithm for connection weights and thresholds. they are fuzzy Hopfield networks and fuzzy bidirectional associative memories (FBAM's). Finally. which are dealt with by Chapter IV and Chapter V. To improve the storage capability and fault-tolerance the fuzzy Hopfield networks with threshold are reported in §3.2 and §2. We focus on two classes of dynamic FAM's.

And give some results about the I/O relationships of regular FNN's. Then we define regular FNN's by connecting a group of regular fuzzy neurons. which can guarantee universal approximation of four layer regular FNN's to hold. whose learning constant in each iteration is determined by GA. which can ensure universal approximation of four layer regular FNN's. Buckley's conjecture 'the regular FNN's can be universal approximators of the continuous and increasing fuzzy function class' is proved to be false by a counterexample. In §4. The main problem to solve is to simplify the equivalent conditions of the fuzzy function class Cp in Chapter IV. Using the fuzzy BP algorithm we can employ a three layer regular FNN to realize a family of fuzzy inference rules approximately.18 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application i. However it can be proven that regular FNN's can approximate the extended function of any continuous function with arbitrarily given degree of accuracy on any compact set of J-'c(K). §4. Here a regular FNN means mainly a multi-layer feedforward FNN. The realization steps of the approximating procedure are presented and illustrated by a simulation example. and present their some useful properties. To speed the convergence of the fuzzy BP algorithm. In §4. an improved fuzzy BP algorithm is developed to realize the approximation with a given accuracy. the discrimination of the pseudo-attractors of this two dynamical FNN's are presented in §3.5 we take the fuzzy Bernstein polynomial as a bride to show that the four layer feedforward regular FNN's can be approximators to the continuous fuzzy valued function class. The basic tools to do these include connection networks. it is also shown in theory that the fuzzy CG algorithm is convergent to the minimum point of the error function. Thus.6 develop some equivalent conditions for the fuzzy function class Cp. attractors or limit cycles. Taking these facts as the basis we in §4. Finally in the chapter we in §4.3 we introduce a novel error function related to three layer feedforward regular FNN's and develop a fuzzy BP algorithm for the fuzzy weights.4 develops a fuzzy CG algorithm for the fuzzy weights of the three layer regular FNN's. The basic tools to do that are the V — A function and the polygonal fuzzy numbers. Moreover. they are learning algorithms for the fuzzy weights of regular FNN's and approximating capability. Simulation examples also demonstrate the fact that the fuzzy CG algorithm improves indeed the fuzzy BP algorithm in convergent speed. Chapter IV develops the systematic theory of regular FNN's by focusing mainly on two classes of important problems. In Chapter V we proceed to analyze universal approximation of regular FNN's. approximately with integral norm sense.e. respectively.e. The main contributions are to introduce a . The transitive laws of attractors.6. the universal approximation problem for four layer regular FNN's is solved completely. fuzzy row-restricted matrices and elementary memories and so on. universal approximation of regular FNN's to fuzzy functions. we at first introduce regular fuzzy neurons. Many simulation examples are shown to illustrate our conclusions. And then some learning algorithms based on fault-tolerance are built. i.7 employ a regular FNN to represent integrable bounded fuzzy valued functions. To this end.5 and §3.

internal operations. Moreover. §5. which simplifies the corresponding conditions in §4.4. for instance. a subset in the space is compact if and only if the set is bounded and closed.1 at first develop uniformity analysis for three layer. §5.). Similarly with §4. Moreover. In §6. by developing a novel extension principle and fuzzy arithmetic. on which we main focus in §6.)— integrable functions with integral norm sense.3 a fuzzy BP algorithm for fuzzy weights of the polygonal FNN's is developed and it is successfully applied to the approximate realization of fuzzy inference rules. many extended operations such as extended multiplication and extended division and so on can be simplified strikingly. For a given accuracy e > 0.3 defines the polygonal FNN. a upper bound of the size of fuzzy rule base of a corresponding approximating fuzzy system is estimated. respectively. and so on. that is. approximation capability and learning algorithm and so on. Chapter VI deals mainly with the approximation capability of generalized fuzzy systems with integral norm.4 treats universal approximation of the polygonal FNN's.3 employ the hierarchy introduced by Raju et al to define hierarchical fuzzy systems. For a given function family the crisp neural networks can approximate each function uniformly with a given accuracy. the size of the fuzzy rule base of a fuzzy system increases exponentially as the input space dimensionality increasing. I/O relationship analysis. the space is a completely separable metric space. So the polygonal FNN's are more applicable.1. Zadeh's extension principle is improved in J^"(M. The basic tool to do that is the piecewise linear function that is one central part in §6.Chapter I Introduction 19 novel class of FNN models—polygonal FNN's and to present useful properties of the FNN's. which is a three layer feedforward network with polygonal fuzzy number input. And show the universal approximation of the generalized fuzzy systems to Lp(/j. strikingly. and four layer crisp feedforward neural networks.6. One main impediment to hinder the application of fuzzy systems is 'rule explosion' problem. by which the 'rule explosion' problem can be solved successfully. a hierarchical fuzzy system and the corresponding higher dimension fuzzy system are equivalent. and shows the fact that a fuzzy function class can guarantee universal approximation of the polygonal FNN's if and only if each fuzzy function in this class is increasing. Also we can construct the approximating neural networks directly through the function family. Thus. the fuzzy systems can also applied to the . such as topological architecture. also it is locally compact. So the hierarchical fuzzy systems can be universal approximators with maximum norm and with integral norm respectively.2 we define the generalized fuzzy systems which include generalized Mamdani fuzzy systems and generalized T-S fuzzy systems as special cases. Thus. a bounded fuzzy number can be a limit of a sequence of polygonal fuzzy numbers. output and connection weights. Also a few of approximation theorems for the piecewise linear functions expressing each Lp(fi)— integrable function are established.2 reports the topological and analytic properties of the polygonal fuzzy number space ^™(R). To overcome such an obstacle we in §6. Based on the novel extension principle §5. To this end we in §5.

At first we treat fuzzy inference networks within a general framework. Also based on MAE criterion. For example. they are stochastic Mamdani fuzzy systems and stochastic T-S fuzzy systems. §8.2 introduces two class of stochastic fuzzy systems. stochastic integral.2 the systematic analysis of approximating capability of stochastic fuzzy systems including stochastic Mamdani fuzzy systems and stochastic T-S fuzzy systems with mean square sense is presented. To this end we in §7. and so §8. whose filtering performance is much better than that of median filter. simultaneously.1 recall some basic concepts about stochastic analysis.4. Using the fundamental results in §6.e. we discuss the approximation capability of fuzzy systems in stochastic environment. Based on the minimum absolute error (MAE) criterion we design an optimal filter FR. and approximating realization procedure of some stochastic processes including a class of non-stationary processes by stochastic fuzzy systems are demonstrated by some simulation examples.2 we propose the FNN representations of a 2-D digital image by define the deviation fuzzy sets and coding the image as the connection weights of a fuzzy inference network. which provides us with the theoretic basis for the applications of generalized fuzzy inference networks. and the stochastic integrals can expressed approximately as an algebra summation of a sequence of random variables. In dynamical system identification we demonstrate by some real examples that the performance resulting from generalized fuzzy inference networks is much better than that from crisp neural networks or fuzzy systems with the Gaussian type antecedent fuzzy sets. that is. when the image is corrupted. However. In order to improve FR in high probability noise. the antecedent fuzzy sets of the selection type FNN are adjusted rationally. §7. which is central part in §7. i.5. FR can preserve the uncorrupted structure of the image and remove impulse noise. In §8. their stochastic integrals with respect to an orthogonal incremental process exist. which possess many useful properties.5 FR may result in bad filtering performance.3 develops a novel FNN—selection type FNN. in which includes the common fuzzy inference networks as special cases. which can be a universal approximator and is suitable for the design of noise filters. stochastic measure and canonical representation of a stochastic process and so on.1 introduces a general fuzzy inference network model by define generalized defuzzifier. Chapter VIII focuses mainly on the application of FNN's in image restoration. and the image can be completely reconstructed. Some further subjects about approximation of fuzzy systems are studied in Chapter VII. Such a representation is accurate when the image is uncorrupted. Many simulation examples are presented to illustrate the approximating results in the chapter.3 and §7. for instance. when the noise probability exceeds 0. Learning algorithms for stochastic Mamdani fuzzy systems and stochastic T-S fuzzy systems are also developed. It preserves the . respectively. the representation may smooth noises and serve as a filter.20 Liu and Li Fuzzy Neural Network Theory and Application cases of higher dimension complicated system. and an optimal FNN filter is built. p > 0. In theory the generalized fuzzy inference networks can be universal approximators.

from input to output. In the chapter we present further researches about FAM's in storage capacity. which was firstly proposed by Kosko B. It is developed based on a crisp feedforward neural network by introducing the fuzzy operators 'V' and 'A'. Some real examples show stronger classifying capability of the fuzzy ART. but it suffers from very poor storage capacity. since the hardware and computation requirements for implementing a FAM with good storage capacity can be reduced. The stronger the classifying ability of a FNN is. signal processing [42]. The fuzzy information can be described by vectors in [0. pattern classification [43. Some optimal connecting fashions of the neurons in a FAM. such as fuzzy relational structure modeling [18. The classifying capability is another important subject related to the storage capacity of a FNN. 39]. such a FNN is called a feedforward FNN. 21. significantly. 1]". associative space and so on. In this chapter. An important subject related to FAM's is the storage capacity of the network [9. At first Kosko [25] develops a fuzzy Hebbian rule for FAM's. completely. under which a family of fuzzy pattern pairs can be stored in a FAM. By introducing the fuzzy operators 'V' and 'A' the crisp adaptive resonance theory (ART) can be generalized as a FNN model—fuzzy ART. Fan et al improve Kosko's methods with maximum solution matrix in [12] to develop some equivalent conditions. 20. 48]. which can provide us with much easier classification for a given fuzzy pattern family [7]. which is called fuzzy associative memories (FAM's). Recent years FAM's have been applied widely in many real fields. the more the FNN can store fuzzy patterns. 23. Finally we propose some systematic approaches to deal with the fuzzy ART. 10. 45-47] and so on. about in 1987. learning algorithm for the connection weight matrices. . A FAM constitutes a fuzzy perceptron. and some learning algorithms are developed based on storage capacity of the FAM. So there exist a lot of researches about the storage capacity of FAM in recent years. and its many classifying characteristics are developed.CHAPTER II Fuzzy Neural Networks for Storing and Classifying If the fuzzy information handled by a FNN flows in one direction. To make up the defects of the fuzzy Hebbian rule. we focus mainly on such feedforward FNN's whose internal operations are based on the fuzzy operator pair 'V — A'.

2.3.2 B P learning algorithm
To develop the BP learning algorithm for the connection weight matrix W
of (2.1), firstly we define a suitable error function. Suppose {(xfe, yfe)|fc G P} is
a fuzzy pattern pair family for training. And for the input pattern xfc of (2.1),
let the corresponding real output pattern be o^ = (o*, ...,oJ^) : Ofc = xj. o W,
that is

o) =


Define the error function E(W) as follows:

E{W) = \ Y: IK - yk\\2 = \ £ £(«* - y>)2-


fe=i fc=ij=i

Since E(W) is non-differentiable with respect to Wij, we can not design the
BP algorithm directly using EiW). So we utilize the functions La and Sm to
replace the fuzzy operators V and A, respectively. By Lemma 2.3, when s is
sufficiently large, we have



E{W)x*e{W) = - ^ ^ ( L a f s i H ; ! * , ^ ) , . . . , ^ ^ ^ , , ) ) ^ ) 2 .

e(W) is a differentiate function, so we can employ the partial derivative
de(W)j'dwij to develop a BP algorithm of (2.1).
Theorem 2.12 Give the fuzzy pattern pair family {(xfc, yfc)|fc G P } . Then
e(W) is continuously differentiable with respect to Wij for i G N, j £ M. And
de(W) _y^

where T(s) = ]T {s -exp(s • A(p,ft))— exp(s • A(i,fc))—l}exp(s • A(p, ft)), and

A(i, ft) = Sm(s;x^,Wij).
Proof. By Lemma 2.4, considering A(i, ft) = Sm(s;i*, ?%•) for i € N, j G
M, we have
