This book focuses on the recent research issues regarding the applicat ion of fuzzy set theory to extend the functionalities of database mana gement systems. During the past 5 years, the research in this field ha s moved from a merely theoretical framework mainly addressing the defi nition of fuzzy extensions of the relational database model to the con sideration of other, object-oriented database paradigms, also in relat ion to their implementation and application in specific contexts (e.g. geographic information systems), fuzzy data mining, and fuzzy functio nal dependencies definition. Besides stimulating interest in the field of fuzzy databases, the book aims to show that the research carried o ut has matured some fuzzy extensions of classical databases that are f easible to implement and apply.
