In this paper we propose an adaptation of the RCA process enabling the relational scaling of pattern structures. In a nutshell, this adaptation allows the scenario where RCA needs to be applied in a relational context family composed by pattern structures instead of formal contexts. To achieve this we define the heterogeneous pattern structures as a model to describe objects in a combination of spaces, namely the original object description space and the set of relational attributes derived
more » ... the RCA scaling process. We frame our approach in the problem of characterizing latent variables (LV) in a latent variable model of documents and terms. LVs are used as compact and improved dataset representations. We approach the problem of LV characterization missing from the original LV-model, through the application of the adapted RCA process using pattern structures. Finally, we discuss the implications of our proposition.
