The Dresden Formal Concept Analysis Page
Formal Concept Analysis is a branch of applied mathematics. Based on a
mathematization of concept and concept hierarchy it activates
mathematical methods for conceptual data analysis and knowledge processing.
Have a (PostScript-)look at an intro, or view
a small example (or a
Beispiel) of a concept lattice.
Several books on Formal Concept Analysis
have appeared, among them the first
textbook on FCA in English.
This book and its German version are out of print. We are working on a second
edition, but that will take a while. A Chinese edition is also in preparation.
Springer has given us the permission to distribute
(ancillary) copies of the first edition
until the second edition is ready.
There are some simple LaTeX macro files for typesetting FCA stuff:
LaTeX for FCA (current version: October 2007).
An extensive publication list and many other useful hints can be found
Homepage of the Ernst-Schröder-Zentrum.
Have a look at
Uta Priss' FCA-pages!
Some other links point to various FCA-related
in Germany or elsewhere.
