Formal Concept AllalY.5is is a field of applied mathematics based on the math ematization of concept and conceptual hierarchy. It thereby activates math ematical thinking for conceptual data analysis and knowledge processing. The underlying notion of "concept" evolved early in the philosophical theory of concepts and still has effects today.3/5. This course is an introduction into formal concept analysis (FCA), a mathematical theory oriented at applications in knowledge representation, knowledge acquisition, data analysis and visualization. It provides tools for understanding the data by representing it as a hierarchy of concepts or, more exactly, a concept lattice/5(12).

Formal Concept Analysis: Mathematical Foundations. Abstract. From the Publisher: This is the first textbook on formal concept analysis. It gives a systematic presentation of the mathematical foundations and their relation to applications in computer science, especially in data analysis and knowledge processing.

Formal Concept Analysis 5th International Conference, ICFCA , Clermont-Ferrand, France, February , Proceedings. Formal concept analysis has been developed as a field of applied mathematics based on the mathematization of concept and concept hierarchy. It thereby allows us to mathematically represent, analyze, and construct conceptual structures. The formal concept analysis approach has been proven successful in a wide range of application fields. This book . Data Analysis[12,13,14,15]. In this section, we mainly reproduce basic de nitions from Ganter&Wille’s book on Formal Concept Analysis . However, one can nd a good introductory material, more focused on partial orders and lattices, in the book of Davey and Priestly . An IR-oriented reader may also nd the following books interesting. This course is an introduction into formal concept analysis (FCA), a mathematical theory oriented at applications in knowledge representation, knowledge acquisition, data analysis and visualization. It provides tools for understanding the data by representing it as a hierarchy of concepts or, more exactly, a concept lattice.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis, ICFCA , held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, in June The 15 full papers and 5 short papers presented in this volume were carefully . Formal Concept Analysis: Foundations and Applications (Lecture Notes in Computer Science / Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) August Formal concept analysis (FCA) is a mathematical framework for data analysis and knowledge discovery. The main issue of knowledge discovery is knowledge reduction. This main textbook on formal concept analysis supplies a scientific presentation of the mathematical foundations and their relations to functions in laptop science, notably in data analysis and knowledge processing.
