Although I am not an expert in knowledge representation, the current
discussion of n-ary relations in representation of knowledge is very
important to my interests. So I have several questions: (01)
Are /hypergraphs /sufficiently well understood and accepted as a
modeling tool for similar [n-ary] requirements?
Are there any tools that support creation and visualization of
hypergraphs [from data]?
Gian Piero Zarri's /Representation and management of narrative
information: Theoretical principles and implementation/ describes
his Narrative Knowledge Representation Language (NKRL), an n-ary
approach to representation of what I would call rhetorically
coheren/t ///extended communications/./ (His
well-researched discussion of "the n-ary problem" on pages 14-33 is
particularly informative.) Are there *any other *non-binary models
for representing complex objects [that is, objects with n-ary
substructure] and relationships among those complex objects???
Are there any SW tools that *directly *support pointing to
(reifying) an arbitrary set of nodes and/or edges?
And if this is not the right space to ask this and
similar questions, where else would you suggest I look for answers? (02)
