A Smooth Introduction to Formal Concept Analysis

CIN UFPE Recife, Monday November 10th and Wednesday November 12th 2014

In these two lectures, we will introduce the basic principles and operations on which relies Formal Concept Analysis (FCA). In a first part, we will describe how starting from a binary table called a formal context we can build a set of (formal) concepts that can be organized within a concept lattice.

Then we will analyze the structure of this concept lattice and show how the initial data are represented and how they can be interpreted.
Next, we will give details on a simple algorithm which, starting from a formal context, is able to build the formal concepts and the associated concept lattice. Examples will be provided for illustrating all operations.

Finally, we will give an idea of two possible extensions of the basic setting of FCA, namely Relational Concept Analysis (RCA) and Pattern Structures. RCA is aimed at taking into account relational data, i.e. relations between objects. Pattern structures are able to deal with complex data including numbers, sequences, trees and graphs. This opens a wide range of possible applications for FCA and extensions.
