A Hierarchical Approach to Object Comparison
Comparing objects is a very general problem domain. The way objects are compared can differ a lot, in the way objects are related to each other as well as in the meaning that is attributed to the result of a comparison. In this paper we develop a theoretical framework for comparing objects. This framework can be tailored to the specific needs of an application through the choice of appropriate operators and evaluation domain (i.e. the domain in which the comparison results are expressed).
