Computing with Conceptual Structures

  title={Computing with Conceptual Structures},
  author={Bernhard Ganter},
We give an overview over the computational tools for conceptional structures that have emerged from the theory of Formal Concept Analysis, with emphasis on basic ideas rather than technical details. We describe what we mean by conceptual computations, and try to convice the reader that an elaborate formalization is a necessary precondition. Claiming that Formal Concept Analysis provides such a formal background, we present as examples two well known algorithms in very simple pseudo code. These… CONTINUE READING
