Let’s look at the implementation file in Listing 3.2.

Listing 3.2 fuzzfier.cpp

This program first sets up all the categories you define. These could be for the example we choose or any example you can think of. After the categories are defined, you can start entering data to be fuzzified. As you enter data you see the probability aspect come into play. If you enter the same value twice, you may end up with different categories! You will see sample output shortly, but first a technical note on how the weighted probabilities are set up. The best way to explain it is with an example. Suppose that you have defined three categories, A, B, and C. Suppose that category A has a relative membership of 0.8, category B of 0.4, and category C of 0.2. In the program, these numbers are first multiplied by 100, so you end up with A=80, B=40, and C=20. Now these are stored in a vector with an index j initialized to point to the first category. Let’s say that these three numbers represent three adjacent number bins that are joined together. Now pick a random number to index into the bin that has its maximum value of (80+40+20). If the number is 100, then it is greater than 80 and less than (80+40), you end up in the second bin that represents B. Does this scheme give you weighted probabilities? Yes it does, since the size of the bin (given a uniform distribution of random indexes into it) determines the probability of falling into the bin. Therefore, the probability of falling into bin A is 80/(80+40+20).
