Summary: This chapter presents the use of fuzzy set theory in databases. Particular emphasis is on the relational data model and possibility and similarity based approaches to representation of uncertainty. Other database models, such as object-oriented and network models, in which fuzzy set approaches to uncertainty have been developed, are also overviewed. More extended discussions of these and other topics can be found in F. E. Petry [Fuzzy databases. Principles and applications. With contribution by Patrick Bosc (1998)].
