Classic problem in class-modelling: how to express that a square is a special kind of rectangle? In order to deepen understanding, let us scrutinize the situation a bit closer here, using logical/ structural foundations of modelling: Continue reading
How does classification based on properties go together with relationship based classes? In addition to the former posting “Concepts vs Modules for Classification”, the fit of concept lattices and relationship graphs is examined in more detail. Continue reading
A Concept (as in Formal Concept Analysis) and a Module (as in Graph Theory) both cover the notion of Classification. Although they share the same basic idea, they reveal differences in detail. Continue reading
Abstractional concepts can be found in the very basics of Graph Theory and Formal Concept Analysis. They provide the basic elements of Classification, Aggregation and Generalisation for a deeper rigorous analysis of Abstractions. Continue reading
We describe by simple means of basic Finite Model Theory a very important principle in software engineering: modelling properties is more expressive than just collecting cases. This, for example, is the reason why test cases can be derived from specifications but not vice versa. Continue reading
Abstraction Awareness is about gaining a deeper understanding of abstraction. With basic means of Graph Theory we diff among two kinds of abstraction: abstraction wrt. generalisation and aggregation. Continue reading
