It is shown that the minimum canonical sum-of-products form of a given fuzzy function is the union of all its prime implicants. A reduction rule, which is necessary and sufficient, is presented that will generate all the prime implicants.
Fuzzy function, fuzzy function reduction rule, fuzzy operations, fuzzy relations, fuzzy variable, prime implicant of fuzzy function.
