Abstract

This paper describes a fuzzy XML schema model for representing a fuzzy relational database in XML format. It outlines a simple translation algorithm to include fuzzy relations and similarity matrices with their associated conventional relation. We also describe an example implementation of a fuzzy relational database and the XML document resulting from the translation according to our schema.
