**Tensorial decomposition of concept lattices.**
*(English)*
Zbl 0583.06007

The author continues his investigation on concept lattices, a field of promising applications. He shows that the tensor product of continuous lattices reflects the product of contexts. In the third part, he takes a closer look at the tensor product and in the fourth part, the subdirect decomposition of the tensor product is investigated. In the last part, he shows how tensor products can be used in finding a scale for contexts.
