  • KurzfassungAbstract
    This introductory chapter to Conceptual Structures in Practice gives a quick overview of formal concept analysis (FCA) to provide necessary prerequisites for understanding the applied chapters later in the book. Besides essential notions like formal context, formal concept, and concept lattice, the chapter also specifically focusses on the aspect of (logic-based) knowledge representation in FCA, leading to the logic of attributes and to the important method of attribute exploration that is also applied in later chapters.
