This book presents, within a conceptually unified theoretical framework, a body of methods that have been developed over the past fifteen years for building and simulating qualitative models of physical systems—bathtubs, tea kettles, automobiles, the physiology of the body, chemical processing plants, control systems, electrical systems—where knowledge of that system is incomplete.

Areas of application are physics, medicine, the field of ecology, process control, etc. In addition to the classification of existing methods, the book presents a new approach based on fuzzy sets. And the work relates Qualitative Reasoning with such fields of Expert Systems, System Theory and Cognitive Science.

Bobrow. This has led to the development of a field in artificial intelligence called qualitative reasoning [4, 5] that provides methods for reasoning with coarse and uncertain information about physical.

The book provides a survey about the field of Qualitative Reasoning, it contrasts and classifies its approaches and puts them into a common framework. Qualitative Reasoning represents an approach of Artificial Intelligence to model dynamic systems, about which little information is available, andAuthor: Hannes Werthner.

qualitative reasoning about physical systems, which in recent years has become an active research area in AI, and has been partly influenced by system dynamics.

The conceptual aspects of‘ the A I approach to physical science are critically assessed, und the mutuul relevance. Abstract. This paper presents a general theory of qualitative reasoning (QR) systems which includes, as special cases, reasoning methods that use representations of qualitative differential equations and qualitative difference equations.

A comprehensive collection of this work is the book ``Qualitative Reasoning about Physical Systems'', published in Since this time, the field has continued to grow, and I will mention later work only if it has a bearing on spatial or mechanical reasoning.

These twenty-eight contributions report advances in one of the most active research areas in artificial intellgence. Qualitative modeling techniques are an essential part of building second generation knowledge-based systems.

Quantitative is more a question of how much (of it), how often, to which degree. The two merge in those cases where a quality has been defined, allowing it.Predicting the behavior of a qualitatively described system of solid objects requires a combination of geometrical, temporal, and physical reasoning.

Methods Based upon formulating and solving differential equations are not adequate for robust prediction, since the behavior of a system over extended time may be much simpler than its behavior Cited by: 8.
