Geometry of Data Tables

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2961)


We introduce the notions of systems of equivalence relations, affine ordered sets and projective ordered sets to draw connections between many-valued contexts, geometry, and order-theory. This gives rise to applications in data analysis and data visualization.
