Association rules are used to investigate large databases. The analyst is usually confronted with large lists of such rules and has to find the most relevant ones for his purpose. Based on results about knowledge representation within the theoretical framework of Formal Concept Anal- ysis, we present relatively small bases for association rules from which all rules can be deduced. We also provide algorithms for their calculation.
