Hypothesis-based multilayered concept for interpreting diagrams

The concept behind the knowledge-modelling unit is new from a scientific viewpoint. Its main concepts are:
1) A diagram is represented as a partonomic hierarchy. An element of the hierarchy represents a part of the diagram. Each part is defined in terms of its parts and the relations holding between them. The partonomic hierarchy can encompass an arbitrary number of semantic as well as geometric levels.
2) An assumed part is a hypothesis that is assigned a certain degree of confidence. Based on a mathematical model of confidence spreading, the best interpretation is inferred.
