Abstract:

IDEA, a computer program for Inductive Data Exploration and Analysis, was developed for on-line interaction in a computer time-shared environment. It is designed for discovering and summarizing potentially interesting data models in the form of restricted tree structures for a multivariate data base. IDEA, through hard copy printing terminals and--if available--cathode ray tube displays soft copy device and light pen, permits the investigator to colloborate with a library of programmed heuristics in the process of uncovering and representing the structure in his data. This users guide is designed to assist in behavioral studies. Author
