Talk: Formal Concept Analysis as Basis for Ordinal Data Analysis


Formal Concept Analysis has been invented more than twenty years ago. Just from the beginning its development profited largerly from its applications in data analysis. Since the nature of Formal Concept Analysis is ordinal, it was mainly applied to ordinal data which strongly forced the development of methods and procedures for Ordinal Data Analysis. The lecture will present an overview about essentials of that development.
