This volume encapsulates the papers presented at a conference on the classification of data held in 1991. The material is organized in three parts - data analysis and classification, data modelling and knowledge processing and applications and special subjects. New results on developing mathematical and statistical methods allowing quantitative analysis of data are reported. Tools for representing, modelling, storing and processing data and knowledge are discussed. At the same time, applications in the fields of astrophysics, archaeology, biology, linguistics and medicine are presented.
