Logical scaling in formal concept analysis

  • Susanne Prediger
Formal Concept Analysis
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1257)


Logical scaling is a new method to transform data matrices which are based on object-attribute-value-relationships into data matrices from which conceptual hierarchies can be explored. The derivation of concept lattices is determined by terminologies expressed in a formallogical language.
