Probabilistic clustering algorithms for fuzzy rules decomposition Conference Paper uri icon


  • The fuzzy c-means (FCM) clustering algorithm is the best known and used method in fuzzy clustering and is generally applied to well defined set of data. In this paper a generalized Probabilistic fuzzy c-means (FCM) algorithm is proposed and applied to clustering fuzzy sets. This technique leads to a fuzzy partition of the fuzzy rules, one for each cluster, which corresponds to a new set of fuzzy sub-systems. When applied to the clustering of a flat fuzzy system results a set of decomposed sub-systems that will be conveniently linked into a Parallel Collaborative Structures.
