Book Description

Managing vagueness/fuzziness is starting to play an important role in Semantic Web research, with a large number of research efforts underway. This book provides a rigorous and succinct account of the mathematical methods and tools used for representing and reasoning with fuzzy information within Semantic Web languages. The book focuses on the three main streams of Semantic Web languages:

  • Triple languages RDF and RDFS
  • Conceptual languages OWL and OWL 2, and their profiles OWL EL, OWL QL, and OWL RL
  • Rule-based languages, such as SWRL and RIF

With an extensive bibliography, ihis book is the first to combine coverage of fuzzy logic and Semantic Web languages. It provides in-depth insight into fuzzy Semantic Web languages for non-fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic experts. It also helps researchers of non-Semantic Web languages get a better understanding of the theoretical fundamentals of Semantic Web languages.
