Sugeno system, characteristic function, continuity


We provide several properties of the input-output (characteristic) function of the SISO / MISO Sugeno fuzzy systems with c.o.g. defuzzification. The properties analyzed are related to continuity under various conditions for the input membership functions, including the case when the input space is a topological space.
