`reduction`

performs the reduction of a knowledge structure by
computing the minimal subset having the same closure as the knowledge
structure. Additionally, it allows for computing the *discriminative*
reduction of a knowledge structure. Such a discriminative reduction is a
knowledge structure in which each notion contains a single item.

An **R** object of the same class as `x`

where each subset represents
one knowledge state of the resulting reduction.
