Part of the Theory and Decision Library book series (TDLD, volume 3)


This Ch. is devoted to central issues arising in any knowledge-based system. Concisely speaking, having already a specified scheme of knowledge representation, we are interested in getting the knowledge concerning the area of interest and, with the aid of the format dictated by the knowledge representation, coding it and indicating a way of effective utilization.
