A Note on the Effect of Knowledge Refinement on Bag Structures

  • Kankana Chakrabarty
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6401)


In this paper, the author discusses the notion of bags and describes a conceptual model of an information system where the effect of knowledge refinement on bag structure can be clearly observed. In this context, the indiscernibility relation is defined over one or more attribute(s) of a collection of objects of the same type. Here the author further define attributive indiscernibility relations and their types.
