About this book

Random sets as models for set-valued observations, are a new type of data proving useful in areas such as survey sampling, biostatistics, and intelligent systems. This is the first text to explore the topic in depth, using extended probability theory to provide a framework and tools for statistical analysis of random sets. With an abundance of examples, it highlights the basic role random sets play in a variety of statistical settings, links their study to fuzzy logic, fully develops the theory, and concludes with a variety of applications. Written by an author of the best-selling A First Course in Fuzzy Logic, this book is rigorous yet readable and fills a significant need for a textbook treatment of the subject.
