Conceptual Spaces is an emerging theory of knowledge representation that describes relationships between concepts, contexts and observations. Due to its mathematical and functional nature, this theory is quite useful for automated reasoning. However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no software frameworks or packages that allow us to explore the computational applications of this theory. In this thesis, we designed, developed and tested a library containing conceptual data structures and operators, primarily for use in automated reasoning and decision support systems.
