Reconstructability Analysis (RA)

Reconstructability Analysis is an approach for inducting modeling relationships and correlations between variables. The aim is to identify strongly related subsets of variables and to represent this knowledge in a simplified model which eliminates the connection between all other ``almost'' unrelated subsets of variables. Reconstruction Analysis grew out of the GSPS (General Systems Problem Solver) Framework and is well documented in [26, pp. 227-281],[14], [28, pp. 270-279], [27], [7].
