Abstract: With the concepts of formulas, medicinal and formula-medicinal relationship in formula database of Shanghanlun, a formal context was created based on mathematical formal concept analysis. The formal context was then given object sub-block division and optimization according to the classification method (harmonizing formulas, warming formulas and sweating formulas) in Shanghangutongfang written by WANG Zi-jie. The multi-layer complex concept network diagrams of corresponding group structure of formula compatibility classified according to therapies in Shanghanlun were established by using generation method of complex concept network. These multi-layer complex concept network diagrams expressed and explained visually the relational structure between corresponding formulas (objects) and medicinal (properties). The research is a new attempt to integrate information science and traditional TCM study of cold damage, which will bring great benefit in relearning traditional classification methods and improve the inheritance and innovation of academic thought in Shanghanlun.

Key words: multi-layer complex concept network representation method, Shanghanlun, formulas, therapies, knowledge discovery
