relationship ( is_a ) between a specialized class and a more general class where objects of the more specialized class ( the subtype) are automatically also instances of the more general type. It is typically easier to implement static generalizations in C++ by using inheritance than to implement dynamic forms. Dynamic generalizations need patterns developed by the GoF [ uml.gif ] [ uml.gen2.gif ] [ uml.gender.gif ] [ uml.shape.gif ] [ uml.dynamic.gif
The process by which one specific experience comes to represent a whole class of experiences; typical of the 'surface structure' of common communications.
a notation for a list of propositions characterizing every member of a set and denoting its class, ¶5-1-4, cf. universal operator. G. contrasts with instantiation (inclusive disjunction).
A generalization is a directed relationship between two like elements, where one element is the parent element and the other is the child element. This type of relationship is also referred to as 'kind of', meaning that the child is a kind of the parent.
the process of formulating general concepts by abstracting common properties of instances
a form of global communication, that is, an individual is sharing a rule that is used to classify experience(s)
a person's idea of the relationships between two or more concepts
a relationship in which things associated with a more specialized child are substitutable for a more general parent
a taxonomic relationship between a more general classifier and a more specific classifier
a taxonomic relationship between a specific classifier and a more general classifier whereby each instance of the specific classifier is also an indirect instance of, and inherits the features of, the general classifier
the relationship between a class and one or more refined or specialized versions of it
Process by which one specific experience comes to represent a whole class of experiences, one of the three modeling processes in NLP.
An inheritance relationship, in which a Subclass inherits and adds to the Attributes and Operations of a Base Class.
(UML) (noun) A superclass. (verb) The process of designing superclasses from "bottom up." subclass.php
A well trained ANN's ability to correctly classify unseen input patterns by finding their similarities with training set patterns
The reverse of specification. A taxonomic relationship between a more general element and a more specific element. The more specific element is fully consistent with the more general element and contains additional information. An instance of the more specific element may be used where the more general element is allowed. [D04837] RUP
