The resolution of problems of typology by the process known as "synthese dimensionnelle"

Date of publication: November 1, 1968


Two concepts of vectorial algebra serve as the bases of the "Synthese Dimensionnelle" process: 1. The concept of the POINT, of the space of points which is the affine of an N-dimensional vectorial space, for the representation of multidimensional entities; 2. The concept of DISTANCE between points in this space, for the representation of relationships between entities o The "Synthese Dimensionnelle" process considers this distance to be of the Euclidean type. These two concepts suffice to express any relationship of proximity between two or more entities, and hence they suffice to define a typology.
