Information technologies for analysis and processing heterogeneous data often face the necessity to unify representation of such data. To solve this problem, it seems reasonable to search for a universal structure that would allow for reducing different formats of data and knowledge to a single mathematical model with unitized manipulation methods. The concept of relation looks very prospective in this sense. So, with a view to developing a general theory of relations, the authors propose n-tuple algebra (NTA) developed as a theoretical generalization of structures and methods applicable in intelligence systems. NTA allows for formalizing a wide set of logical problems (deductive, abductive and modified reasoning, modeling uncertainties and so on).
