An Explication of the Concept «Analogy»

In this article we have tried to give an explicit interpretation to the concept «analogy», which, according to us-is used too often in an intuitive way without explicit definition. In this interpretation we have constructed a quantification function for analogy. This quantification function is dependant on a digital automaton but under certain conditions extendible to an analog automaton. We have tried to prove that this quantitative function is a distance function.
