In this paper, we present a novel technique, called F-APACS, for discovering fuzzy association rules in relational databases. Instead of dividing up quantitative attributes into fixed intervals and searching for rules expressed in terms of them, F-APACS employs linguistic terms to represent the revealed regularities and exceptions. The definitions of these linguistic terms are based on fuzzy set theory and the association rules expressed in them are, therefore, called fuzzy association rulesdoi:10.1109/fuzzy.1998.686309 fatcat:4kdo26mueffrrdytx6fz43az5q
