Formal Concept Analysis

  • Formal Concept Analysis takes as input a matrix specifying a set of objects and the properties thereof, called attributes, and finds both all the “natural” clusters of attributes and all the “natural” clusters of objects in the input data, where
    • a “natural” object cluster is the set of all objects that share a common subset of attributes, and
    • a “natural” property cluster is the set of all attributes shared by one of the natural object clusters

  • Natural property clusters correspond one-for-one with natural object clusters, and a concept is a pair containing both a natural property cluster and its corresponding natural object cluster
  • The family of these concepts obeys the mathematical axioms defining a lattice, and is called a concept lattice
