Abstract

This chapter considers, and elucidates, the general methodology of rough set theory (RST), a nascent approach to rule based classification associated with soft computing. There are two parts of the elucidation undertaken in this chapter, firstly the levels of possible pre-processing necessary when undertaking an RST based analysis, and secondly the presentation of an analysis using variable precision rough sets (VPRS), a development on the original RST that allows for misclassification to exist in the constructed “if … then …” decision rules. Throughout the chapter, bespoke software underpins the pre-processing and VPRS analysis undertaken, including screenshots of its output. The problem of US bank credit ratings allows the pertinent demonstration of the soft computing approaches described throughout.
