# gbellmf

Generalized bell-shaped membership function

## Syntax

```y = gbellmf(x,params)
```

## Description

The generalized bell function depends on three parameters a, b, and c as given by

$f\left(x;a,b,c\right)=\frac{1}{1+{|\frac{x-c}{a}|}^{2b}}$

where the parameter b is usually positive. The parameter c locates the center of the curve. Enter the parameter vector params, the second argument for gbellmf, as the vector whose entries are a, b, and c, respectively.

```x = 0:0.1:10;
y = gbellmf(x,[2 4 6]);
plot(x,y)
xlabel('gbellmf, P=[2 4 6]')
