   Software Description

The basic idea of Gentner's structure-mapping theory is that an analogy is a mapping of knowledge from one domain (the base) into another (the target) which conveys that a system of relations which holds among the base objects also holds among the target objects. The Structure-mapping Engine (SME) is a computer simulation of the analogy and similarity comparisons sanctioned by structure-mapping theory.
