Abstract: I recently discovered an area of data analysis that began in 1986 with the work of Peter L. Hammer called Logical Analysis of Data (LAD). When I asked around my circle, no one had heard of it. So I decided to write a short introduction about this original methodology of data analysis. LAD is a binary interpretable classification method, based on a mixture of optimization, Boolean functions and combinatorial theory. But rest assured that no prerequisites are needed to understand the basics of this theory. It is a competitive classification method for analysing datasets consisting of binary observations that offers a clear explanation through its concept of patterns.
