fun2-2-674: Modeling of the Three-Dimensional Surface F2


Name: fun2-2-674
Type: Laboratory problem
Number of input variables: 2
Number of training examples: 674
Domain of the input variable 1: [0, 1]
Domain of the input variable 2: [0, 1]
Range of the output variable: [0, 10]

The aim in this problem is to model the three-dimensional surface generated by the mathematical function F2 shown below.

In this problem, seven linguistic terms are usually considered for each variable in linguistic fuzzy modeling.

Data Sets

A training data set uniformly distributed in the two-dimensional definition space has been obtained experimentally. In this way, a set with 674 values has been generated for the function F2 taking 26 values for each one of the two input variables considered to be uniformly distributed in their intervals.

On the other hand, the test data is obtained generating the input variable values at random in the concrete universes of discourse for each one of them, and computing the associated output variable value. A test data set with 67 (9.1%) examples has been generated.
