Multi-adjoint t-concept lattices. (English) Zbl 1187.68587

Summary: The t-concept lattice is introduced as a set of triples associated to graded tabular information interpreted in a non-commutative fuzzy logic. Following the general techniques of formal concept analysis, and based on the works by Georgescu and Popescu, given a non-commutative conjunctor it is possible to provide generalizations of the mappings for the intension and the extension in two different ways, and this generates a pair of concept lattices. In this paper, we show that the information common to both concept lattices can be seen as a sublattice of the Cartesian product of both concept lattices. The multi-adjoint framework can be applied to this general t-concept lattice, and its usefulness is illustrated by a working example.
