Title:A Study of the Non-Smooth Concept Membership Function
Date: 1990
Presented:Submitted to AAAI-90
Abstract:The paper provides a discussion of the non-smooth concept membership function and its relationship to constructive induction. A way of measuring the smoothness of concept membership functions is introduced and used to derive nominal smoothness values for the membership functions represented by a number of well known training sets. A special case of non-smoothness is isolated and analysed, and its relationship to the problem of representation modification is considered.
