# Graph Concepts¶

## DRAFT: Work in progress¶

This material is a work in progress, at "rough draft" stage.

## Class Abstractions¶

The primary abstractions used in **kglab** are based on a small set of
Python classes.
These class definitions can be subclassed and extended to handle
specific use cases as needed.

### Knowledge Graph¶

the representation of *RDF graphs*,
including use of *semantic technologies* / *ontology* / *controlled vocabularies*,
and also handling *property graph* features

*namespace management**graph construction**serialization**querying**validation**inference*

### Subgraph¶

*transforms to matrix/tensor**label encoding**visualization**graph algorithms**probabilistic graph inference**embedding*

### Measure¶

*descriptive statistics**topological analysis*- constructing
*shapes* - estimates of graph size and complexity
- estimated computation costs
