This book, which constitutes the fifth volume of the Transactions on Rough Sets series, is dedicated to the monumental life, work and creative genius of Zdzislaw Pawlak, the originator of rough sets, who passed away in April 2006. It opens with a commemorative article that gives a brief coverage of Pawlak's works in rough set theory, molecular computing, philosophy, painting and poetry. Fifteen papers explore the theory of rough sets in various domains as well as new applications of rough sets. In addition, this volume of the TRS series includes a complete monograph on rough sets and approximate Boolean reasoning systems that covers both the foundations and the applications of data mining.
