abstract = "A graph represents a particular relationship between elements of a set V. It gives an idea about the extent of the relationship between any two elements of V. We can solve this problem by using a weighted graph if proper weights are known. But in most of the situations, the weights may not be known, and the relationships are {\textquoteleft}fuzzy{\textquoteright} in a natural sense. Hence, a fuzzy relation can deal with the situation in a better way. As an example, if V represents certain locations and a network of roads is to be constructed between elements of V, then the costs of construction of the links are fuzzy. But the costs can be compared, to some extent using the terrain and local factors and can be modeled as fuzzy relations. Thus, fuzzy graph models are more helpful and realistic in natural situations.",
