A language for expressing fuzzy temporal rules

Purificación Cariñena Amigo, Alberto José Bugarín Diz, Manuel Mucientes, D. Senén Barro Ameneiro


This paper deals with the formal description of what we call Fuzzy Temporal Propositions: propositions with explicitly expressed information of a temporal type. The set of syntactic rules that make a grammar up for defining a language for this kind of propositions is presented. For some of the rules, examples that illustrate the expressive power of this type of knowledge representation are introduced. Semantic criteria and definitions are also introduced through examples in order to show how intuitive results are obtained when a reasoning process is performed on Fuzzy Temporal Rules for those cases.
