#64. Forthcoming book by Reinhard Viertl

A number of online sellers are already accepting preorders of Reinhard Viertl's new book Fuzzy data and Statistics, seemingly to appear in Dec 2009 in Wiley.

As the name `Wiley' may suggest, this will be the third time (to the best of my knowledge) that fuzzy material makes it into the Wiley Series on Probability and Statistics.

First, Finding groups in data: an introduction to cluster analysis (1990, by Kaufman and Rousseeuw) discussed fuzzy and nonfuzzy clustering on equal footing.

Second came Statistical applications using fuzzy sets (1994, by Manton, Woodbury and Tolley), whose grade-of-membership method made heavy use of fuzzy partitions (although, it looks like currently the fuzzy interpretation has been expurgated from the theory).
