Squashing Functions

E-mail Print
In practice, many different squashing functions are used. Kosko and Taber for example suggest the use of a simple binary function, but more complex functions are possible as well.

Identifying concept-specific squashing functions is very important, unfortunately, so far no publication has yet dealt with that problem.

To get an idea what squashing functions do please have a look at this article.
