Examples are provided using Roget’s...
FCA interpretation of relation algebra.
Priss, U. (2006)
FCA interpretation of relation algebra. https://doi.org/10.1007/11671404_17
This paper discusses an interpretation of relation algebra and fork algebra with respect to FCA contexts. In this case, "relation algebra" refers to the DeMorgan-Peirce-Schroe...
Lattice-based modelling of thesauri.
Priss, U. & Old, L. J. (2007)
Lattice-based modelling of thesauri
This paper revisits ideas about the use of lattices as underlying conceptual structures in information retrieval and machine translation as suggested by researchers in the 195...

FcaFlint is a tool that implements context operations for FCA formal
contexts. It is part of the FcaStone package. This paper provides an introduction
to Relation Algebra oper...
