Conditional Functional Dependencies (CFDs) are Functional Dependencies (FDs) that hold on a fragment relation of the original relation. In this paper, we show the hierarchy between FDs, CFDs and Association Rules (ARs): FDs are the union of CFDs while CFDs are the union of ARs. We also show the link between Approximate Functional Dependencies (AFDs) and approximate ARs. In this paper, we show that all those dependencies are indeed structurally the same and could be unified into a singledoi:10.1007/978-3-642-01815-2_9 fatcat:d3k4mwjbdvh6lmpomfnzbfiktm
