Granular Computing (GrC) is a general computation theory for effectively using granules such as subsets, neighborhoods, turples(ordered subsets), relations(subsets of Caresian products), fuzzy sets(membership functions), variables (measurable functions), Turing machines(algorithms),and intervals to build an efficient computational model for complex with huge amounts of data, information and knowledge. (See Granular Computing Informastion Center).

Though the label is relatively recent, the basic notions and principles are quite common, even ancient. For example, granulations of daily objects,such as human body, are ancient practices. The infinitesimal that led to invention of Calculus, are the ancient intuition on the granulatiion of space and time.

Heisenburg uncertainty (a neighborhood of possible locations)intergral part of modern physics (quantum mechanics). Information hiding in programming, divide and conquer in algoritnm development are common practices of granular computing in computer science.

Fuzzy and rough set theories, neutrosophic computing, quotient space, belief functions, machine learning, databases, data mining, cluster analysis, interval computing, more recently social computing, computing all involve granular computing.
