Topic of the Hauptseminar
Participants will get to know a variety of extensions of set theory aimed to the representation of vague concepts. In these, elements are given a degree of membership to the set, usually from the interval [0,1]; the difference between formalisms relies on how these degrees are interpreted and operated within set theory.

Goal of the Hauptseminar
Apart from learning about the main topic, students should learn how to get acquainted with a relevant body of literature, how to produce a well-structured paper, and how to give an understandable scientific talk.

Duties of Participants
In the initial meeting, students choose a topic to work on and are assigned a tutor. During the seminar, the student has to understand the relevant literature and write a paper about the chosen topic (~12 pages). Finally, each student presents his/her work in a talk to the other participants. In doing this, he/she receives individual support by the tutor. The students should present

Additionally, students must meet the following requirements.

The seminar is coordinated by Rafael Peñaloza.
