Description

Fuzzy Databases: Modeling, Design and Implementation focuses on some semantic aspects which have not been studied in previous works and extends the EER model with fuzzy capabilities. The exposed model is called FuzzyEER model, and some of the studied extensions are: fuzzy attributes, fuzzy aggregations and different aspects on specializations, such as fuzzy degrees, fuzzy constraints, etc. All these fuzzy extensions offer greater expressiveness in conceptual design.

Fuzzy Databases: Modeling, Design and Implementation proposes also a method to translate FuzzyEER model to a classical DBMS, and defines FSQL (Fuzzy SQL), an extension of the SQL language that allows users to write flexible conditions in queries, using all extensions defined by the FuzzyEER model.

This book, while providing a global and integrated view of fuzzy database constructions, serves as an introduction to fuzzy logic, fuzzy databases and fuzzy modeling in databases.

Reviews and Testimonials

This book will be essential reading in order to carry out any kind of research project in Fuzzy Databases, as well as a necessary and important reference in any research work about this field. Definitely, it is a good way to know the State of the Art in Fuzzy Database Modelling.
