AbstractIn this paper, we present an Expert System dealing with the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Being fibromyalgia a very hard illness to diagnose, we think that our system may be useful for non-specialists (like family doctors) or specialists that would like to compare their own diagnoses with the one provided by our system. Our system has the peculiarity of being based on a previous mathematical result which lets us transform the problem of diagnosing this illness into an algebraic problem. Consequently our system is implemented in a computer algebra system. In this paper, we will describe the components of our system: a “Knowledge Base” based on studies on medicine and the knowledge of experts on fibromyalgia; an “Inference Engine” responsible of the knowledge extraction and consistency checking; and a “Graphic User’s Interface” which lets users operate with our system.
