ConditionReduct-class: Class '"ConditionReduct"'

Description Objects from the Class Slots Methods Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

A condition reduct is a decision table where the superfluous conditions have been removed. This object can be created by the users, but it suggested its creation by the use of the methods provided by a Decision Table object.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("ConditionReduct", decisionTable, columnIds). A decisionTable is a numeric matrix where each row is a rule. The matrix last column is the decision of the rules and the remaining columns are rule conditions. The columnIds is a numeric vector with the position of the column which conform the condition reduct. This object can be created by the users, but it is preferred its creation by the use of the methods provided by a Decision Table object.

Slots

decisionTable:

Object of class "DecisionTable"

This is not a complete implementation of Rough Set theory; instead it is just the application of the theory to decision table simplification also known as knowledge reduction.
