Formal Concept, Lattice, VitalConcepts, Regulation, and Transportation


This research effort applies Formal Concept Analysis to a data set that consists of a number of vessel accidents in the lower Mississippi River and identifies the concepts that are vital indicators of a special type of accident. Furthermore, the analysis uses the labels of such concepts to reflect the conditions under which a vessel is prone to a particular type of accident. These conditions can assist maritime authorities to regulate vessel transportation on the lower Mississippi River. The proposed regulations are presented under three categories of severity: cautionary, serious, and prohibitive. In addition, the first two of these categories carry an urgency level and sublevel.
