Holographic technique for linguistic modelling

Alexander V. Pavlov

An approach to implement the idea of linguistic modelling by Fourier-holography technique is proposed. The approach is based on deep analogies between Optics as a physical reality and Fuzzy Sets Theory as an abstract construction. We use the concept of linguistic variable, proposed by L. Zadeh and restrict our consideration to the semantics only. We develop a model of 4-f Fourier-holography set-up and demonstrate Fourier-duality of conjunction and disjunction leads to fuzzy-valued logic. We propose biologically inspired approach to implement multi-input reasoning in the setup and demonstrate experimental illustration by using classical example of General Modus Ponens rule.
