Reviews

From the reviews:

"I am much interested and impressed by Dr. Sifeng Liu and Dr. Yi Lin’s recently published monograph on grey information, dealing with the theory and practical applications. … It is a comprehensive, all-in-one exposition, detailing not only with the theoretical foundation but also real-life applications. Because of this characteristic of quality and usefulness, Liu and Lin’s book possesses the value of the widest possible range of reference by the workers and practitioners from all concerns of natural and social sciences and technology." (Robert Vallée, Kybernetes, Vol. 37 (1), 2008)
