Let i = 1,..., N be some units (objects) and R = R 1,..., R p be an arbitrary partition of the set of the units with classes R 1,..., R p. Let K ⊂ 1,...,p 2 be an association graph on the set of classes R 8, i.e. two classes R s, R t are called to be associated if s,tK. The pair M = (R,K) will be called a partition with a structure, or a macrostructure.
