Recently Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), a mathematical framework based on partial ordering relations has become popular for knowledge representation and reasoning. Further this framework is extended as Fuzzy FCA, Rough FCA, etc. to deal with practical applications. There are investigations in the literature applying FCA for Information Retrieval (IR) applications. The objective of this paper is to apply Fuzzy FCA approach for IR. While adopting Fuzzy FCA, we follow a fast algorithm to generate the fuzzy concepts rather than classical algorithms that are based on residuated methods. Further we follow an approach that retrieves the relevant documents even during absence of exact match of the keywords. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
