abstract = {The theory of Approximation Spaces induced by Information Systems over a universe may be generalized assuming that the elements of the universe are connected by means of a binary relation. This paper presents an analysis of this generalization based on an extended interpretation of Modal Logics exploiting the features provided by Relation Algebras. In this way we can easily obtain the usual Approximation Spaces as particular cases and provide a theoretical basis for computer implementations based on matrix manipulation.},
