A. Fuzzy Causal Networks


Abstract—In this paper, we first propose a general framework for fuzzy causal networks (FCNs). Then, we study the dynamics and convergence of such general FCNs. We prove that any general FCN with constant weight matrix converges to a limit cycle or a static state, or the trajectory of the FCN is not repetitive. We also prove that under certain conditions a discrete state general FCN converges to its limit cycle or static state in ( ) steps, where is the number of vertices of the FCN. This is in striking contrast with the exponential running time 2, which is accepted widely for classic FCNs.
