## Reflections on Abstractions: From ‘Siamese’ Graphs to Concept Lattices

There is an elegant construct of dealing with ‘Siamese’ abstractions for object-attribute situations, from formal concept analysis. Where ‘Siamese’ means not-rhs-unique mapping of complete subgraphs. Continue reading

## Reflections on Abstractions: Subsumptions and Omissions

In addition to the recent posting ‘Abstractive and Functional Mappings’ we provide a simple visualisation of subsuming and omitting abstractions. Continue reading

## Reflections on Abstractions: Abstractive vs Functional Mappings

We introduce the concepts of subsuming and omitting mappings, and see how they are better suited for abstraction and modelling than the classical mathematical concept of functions. Continue reading

## Modelling explained (to Journalists)

In journalism dog bites man or man bites dog, makes a big difference. In modelling it’s the same entities with the same relation, just in different directions. Continue reading

## 2-Structures by Ehrenfeucht et al.

2-Structures theory is mainly concerned with analysing the algebraic properties of switches. Therefore Ehrenfeucht, Harju, Rozenberg give the following example: … Continue reading
