Boundedness and Self-Organized Semantics: Theory and Applications
Maria K. Koleva.
With the consideration of boundedness as a principle of organization rather than a law, its leading role is to apply a chain of command to the self-organization of matter, energy, and information. An exclusive property of this theory is the established way of sustaining the functionality of hierarchy...

Exceptions in Ontologies: A Theoretical Model for Deducing Properties from Topological Axioms
Christophe Jouis, Julien Bourdaillet, Bassel Habib, Jean-Gabriel Ganascia.
This chapter is a contribution to the study of formal ontologies. It addresses the problem of atypical entities in ontologies. The authors propose a new model of knowledge representation by combining ontologies and topology. In order to represent atypical entities in ontologies, the four topological...
Approaches for Semantic Association Mining and Hidden Entities Extraction in Knowledge Base
Thabet Slimani, Boutheina Ben Yaghlane, Khaled Mellouli.
Due to the rapidly increasing use of information and communications technology, Semantic Web technology is being increasingly applied in a large spectrum of applications in which domain knowledge is represented by means of an ontology in order to support reasoning performed by a machine. A semantic...
Building and Use of a LOM Ontology
