Abstract
***
Concept formation programs aim to produce a high yield of concepts which
are considered
interesting. One intelligent way to do this is to base a new concept on
one or more concepts
which are already known to be interesting. This requires a concrete
notion of the
`interestingness' of a particular concept. Restricting the concepts
formed to mathematical
definitions in finite group theory, we derive three measures of the
interestingness of a concept. These measures are based on how much the
concept improves a classification of finite groups.
