27 July 1999 Application of conditional and relational event algebra to the defining of fuzzy logic concepts

Beginning with work in the mid 1970's and early 1980's, it was discovered that fundamental homomorphic-like relations exist between many first order fuzzy logic concepts and naturally corresponding probability ones via the one-point coverage events for appropriately chosen random subsets of the domains of the fuzzy sets considered. This paper first extends and modifies the above-mentioned homomorphic-like relations previously established. It also introduces a number of new homomorphic-like relations between fuzzy logic concepts and probability, utilizing two recently derived subfields of probability theory: conditional and relational event algebra. In addition, a newly invigorated branch of probability theory dealing with second order probabilities (or `probabilities of probabilities') is shown to be applicable to treating certain deduction problems involving conditioning of populations.
