Complex systems are typically manifest in multi-variate data. The analysis of such data is therefore an intrinsic effort of systems research. In this paper, a distinction is made between the logic of many-valued relations and the quantification of the strength of these relations in data. The former is unrelated to data whereas the latter is invoked in two empirical tasks: the identification of structures in data and the construction of models and theories that reproduce or explain these data at… CONTINUE READING
