Zusammenfassung: | Let Q be a finite set of problems. A knowledge state is the set of problems a person is capable of solving. A family K of knowledge states is called a knowledge structure if the empty set and Q are elements of K. When it is closed under union, the structure is called a knowledge space. There exist effective algorithms to generate a knowledge space by querying an expert using an entail relation. In this paper we show that more general knowledge structures can be generated using modified query procedures. The general theory of the Galois connections between entail relations and knowledge structures is explored. Finally, we present query procedures which can be applied to generate any knowledge structure. (C) 1996 Academic Press, Inc. |
