propositions
^{}
- Since fuzzy logic is sometimes presented as an
alternative to Bayesian probability theory, it should be emphasised
that truth value and degree of belief are different dimensions. It
is possible to envision an extension of Bayesian probability theory
which would define probabilities for propositions with fuzzy truth
values.

- ... layers
^{}
- There are two conventions for
counting the layers. Here the factors are counted as one layer
although they are not computational elements. The alternative is to
count only layers of computational elements. Both conventions agree
on how to count hidden layers.
