Abstract: We first review the development of fuzzy system models from |fuzzy rule bases| proposed by Zadeh (1965, 1975) to |fuzzy functions| proposed by Turksen (2008) and further developed by Celikyilmaz and Turksen (2008a; 2008b; 2008c; 2009a; 2009b) in a variety of versions. Next, we also review a complementary development of |fuzzy C-regression model| (FCRM) proposed by Hathaway and Bezdek (1993), as well as a |combined FCM and FCRM algorithms| proposed by Höppner and Klawonn (2003). Finally, various experimental assessments of such fuzzy function models are presented.

Keywords: fuzzy rule bases; fuzzy functions; fuzzy system models; fuzzy C-regression model; FCRM; modelling.
