On Some New Types of Fuzzy Dependencies

C. Molina, D. Sánchez, J.M. Serrano, M.A. Vila.

We introduce fuzzy dependencies with new semantics as a generalization of both fuzzy approximate and fuzzy gradual dependencies. The new dependencies are defined as fuzzy association rules relating different types of items on a particular set of transactions obtained from a database. We discuss the semantics and we illustrate the new types of dependencies with results of our experiments. Algorithmic issues are also briefly discussed.
