In this paper a new adaptive fuzzy wavelet neural network (AFWNN) model is proposed for nonlinear function approximation problems. The AFWNN model is a Takagi-Sugeno-Kang (TSK) fuzzy system in which the membership functions of fuzzy rules are replaced with wavelet basis functions, which are known to have time and frequency localization properties. The AFWNN model is trained using a gradient-based optimization algorithm for certain types of nonlinear time series, for instance fractal processes and the simulation results are found to be substantially more accurate than alternative methods.
