Fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs) have been proposed to represent causal reasoning by using numeric processing. They graphically represent uncertain causal reasoning. In the resonant states, there emerges a limit cycle or a hidden pattern, which is a FCM inference. However, there are some shortcomings concerned with knowledge representation in the conventional FCMs. The author proposes extended fuzzy cognitive maps (E-FCMs) to represent causal relationships more naturally. The features of the E-FCMs are nonlinear membership functions, conditional weights, and time delay weights. Computer simulation results indicate the effectiveness of the E-FCMs.
