Abstract
The irreducible elements in a lattice are very important. For example, when the lattice is finite, which is the usual in the computational case, they form a base from which the complete lattice is obtained. These elements are also important in Formal Concept Analysis, since they are the basic information of a relational system. B. Ganter and R. Wille considered the irreducible elements of a concept lattice and introduced an algorithm to obtain the complete lattice from these elements. This paper presents, in the general fuzzy framework of multi-adjoint concept lattices, the irreducible elements and so the base information given in a general relational system. Moreover, an algorithm can be obtained to build the whole concept lattice.
