Based on fuzzy similarity degree, entropy, relative entropy and fuzzy entropy, the symmetric fuzzy relative entropy is presented, which not only has a full physical meaning, but also has succinct practicability. The symmetric fuzzy relative entropy can be used to measure the divergence between different fuzzy patterns. The example demonstrates that the symmetric fuzzy relative entropy is valid and reliable for fuzzy pattern recognition and classification, and its classification precision is very high.
