Fr.: fusion   

1) The act or process of fusing; the state of being → fused; that which is fused; the result of fusing.
2) A → nuclear reaction between atomic nuclei (→ nucleus) as a result of which a heavier nucleus is formed and a large quantity of → nuclear energy is released. → proton-proton chain, → CNO cycle, → nucleosynthesis.
3) Change of the → state of a → substance from → solid to → liquid which occurs at a definite → temperature at a given applied → pressure. Same as melting.

From M.Fr. fusion, from L. fusionem, from fusus, p.p. of fundere "to pour, melt."

Verbal noun form of → fuse.

âyandé (#)

Fr.: future   

General: Time that is to be or come hereafter.
In a → space-time diagram, those events that could be influenced by a given element.

M.E. futur, from O.Fr., from L. futurus "about to be," irregular suppletive future participle of esse "to be."

Âyandé "future" agent noun/adjective of âmadan "to come, to occur, to become," from Mid.Pers. âmatan; O.Pers. gam- "to come; to go," Av. gam- "to come; to go," jamaiti "goes;" Proto-Iranian *āgmatani; Skt. gamati "goes;" Gk. bainein "to go, walk, step;" L. venire "to come;" Tocharian A käm- "to come;" O.H.G. queman "to come;" E. come; PIE root *gwem- "to go, come."

future light cone
  مخروط ِ نوری ِ آینده   
maxrut-e nuri-ye âyandé (#)

Fr.: cône de lumière futur   

The set of all points in a → space-time diagram that are reached by signals travelling from a specified point at the speed of light.

future; → light; → cone.

porz (#)

Fr.: duvet, poils fins   

1) Loose, light, fibrous, or → fluffy matter.
2) A mass or coating of such matter.
3) (Of an image) A blur. (

Of unknown origin; cf. Du. voos "spongy, woolly."

Porz "short fuzzy ends of fibers on the surface of cloth, any downy coating," of unknown etymology.


Fr.: fuzzification   

The first step carried out in a → fuzzy logic system during which a → crisp set of → input data are gathered and converted to a → fuzzy set using fuzzy → linguistic variables, fuzzy linguistic terms, and → membership functions.

Verbal noun of → fuzzify; → -tion.


Fr.: fuzzifier   

To convert a → crisp set to a → fuzzy set in a → fuzzy logic system.

fuzzy; → -fy.



The state or condition of being → fuzzy.

fuzzy; → -ness.


Fr.: flou, crépu   

1) Of the nature of or resembling → fuzz.
2) Covered with fuzz.
3) Indistinct; → blurred (
See also: → fuzzy image, → fuzzy logic, → fuzzy set.

From → fuzz + -y adj. suffix, from O.E. -ig, cognate with L. -icus, → -ic.

Porzvâr "resembling fuzz," from porz, → fuzz, + -var, a suffix of possession, similarity, and aptitude (e.g., omidvâr, sezâvâr, sugvâr, šâhvâr, gušvâr), → -oid.

fuzzy image
  تصویر ِ پرزوار   
tasvir-e porzvâr

Fr.: image floue, ~ estompée   

Same as → blurred image.

fuzzy; → image.

fuzzy inference system
  راژمان ِ دربرد ِ پرزوار   
râžmân-e darbord-e porzvâr


A way of → mapping an → input space to an → output space using → fuzzy logic. FIS uses a collection of fuzzy → membership functions and rules, instead of Boolean logic, to reason about data. Also called → fuzzy logic system.

fuzzy; → inference; → system.

fuzzy inferencing
  دربرد ِ پرزوار   
darbord-e porzvâr


A process used in a → fuzzy logic system where the → truth value for the premise of each rule is computed and applied to the conclusion part of each rule. This results in one fuzzy set to be assigned to each output variable for each rule.

fuzzy; → inference.

fuzzy logic
  گوییک ِ پرزوار   
guyik-e porzvâr

Fr.: logic flou   

A mathematical logic that recognizes more than simple → true and → false → propositions. With fuzzy logic, propositions can be represented with degrees of truthfulness and falsehood. In this system, → truth values are → fuzzy sets without sharp boundaries (→ crisp set) in contrast with → classical logic. Fuzzy logic is applied to a wide range of problems including: industrial control, domestic goods, decision making, robotics, intelligent machines, and image processing in medicine.

fuzzy; → logic.

fuzzy logic system
  راژمان ِ گوییک ِ پرزوار   
râžmân-e guyik-e porzvâr

Fr.: système de logic flou   

An engineering system which uses → fuzzy logic. It generally consists of four main components: → fuzzification interface (fuzzifier), → fuzzy rule base, → fuzzy inferencing unit, and → defuzzification interface (difuzzifier). Also called → fuzzy inference system.

fuzzy; → logic; → system.

fuzzy rule base
  پایگاه ِ رزن ِ پرزوار   
pâygâh-e razan-e porzvâr


A rule base in a → fuzzy logic system constructed to control the → output variable. A fuzzy rule is a simple if-then rule with a condition and a conclusion.

fuzzy; → rule; → base.

fuzzy set
  هنگرد ِ پرزوار   
hangard-e porzvâr

Fr.: ensemble flou   

A set of → truth values in → fuzzy logic that does not have sharp boundaries. Instead, set members have degrees of membership. If the value of 1 is assigned to objects entirely within the set and a 0 is assigned to objects outside of the set, then any object partially in the set will have a value between 0 and 1. This contrast with → crisp sets in → classical logic where members assume a precise value of 1 or 0. Fuzzy sets were first introduced by Lotfi A. Zadeh (1965) and defined as follows. Let X be a space of points, with a generic element of X denoted by x. Thus X = {x}. A fuzzy set A in X is characterized by a → membership function  fA(x) which associates with each point in X a real number in the interval [0,1], with the values of fA(x) at x representing the "grade of membership" of x in A. Thus, the nearer the value of fA(x) to unity, the higher the grade of membership of x in A. Generally, the intersection operations of fuzzy sets are the expansion of that operation on → nonfuzzy sets. In other words, operations on nonfuzzy sets are a particular case of operations on fuzzy sets.

fuzzy; → set.
