%%% This bibliography was initially built from
%%% searches in the OCLC Content1st database.
%%% Additions were then made from all of the
%%% bibliographies in the TeX User Group
%%% collection, from bibliographies in the
%%% author's personal files, from the IEEE
%%% INSPEC CD-ROM database (1989--1995), from
%%% the Compendex database, from the American
%%% Mathematical Society MathSciNet database,
%%% and from the computer science bibliography
%%% collection on ftp.ira.uka.de in
%%% /pub/bibliography to which many people of
%%% have contributed. The snapshot of this
%%% collection was taken on 5-May-1994, and it
%%% consists of 441 BibTeX files, 2,672,675
%%% lines, 205,289 entries, and 6,375
%%% String{} abbreviations, occupying
%%% 94.8MB of disk space.
%%%
%%% Numerous errors in the sources noted above
%%% have been corrected. Spelling has been
%%% verified with the UNIX spell and GNU ispell
%%% programs using the exception dictionary
%%% stored in the companion file with extension
%%% .sok.
%%%
%%% BibTeX citation tags are uniformly chosen as
%%% name:year:abbrev, where name is the family
%%% name of the first author or editor, year is a
%%% 4-digit number, and abbrev is a 3-letter
%%% condensation of important title words.
%%% Citation labels were automatically generated
%%% by software developed for the BibNet Project.
%%%
%%% In this bibliography, entries are sorted in
%%% publication order, with the help of ``bibsort
%%% -byvolume''. The bibsort utility is available
%%% from ftp.math.utah.edu in /pub/tex/bib.
%%%
%%% The checksum field above contains a CRC-16
%%% checksum as the first value, followed by the
%%% equivalent of the standard UNIX wc (word
%%% count) utility output of lines, words, and
%%% characters. This is produced by Robert
%%% Solovay's checksum utility.",

abstract = "The future of computer aided design is in object
oriented programming. If the database community hopes
to participate in this future, it must reexamine some
basic assumptions about the architecture of database
systems. Database system functionality can be added to
object systems but if the performance cost is too high,
it will never survive. Below are some suggestions for
what can be done at a reasonable performance cost.
\par
The object oriented paradigm provides a more practical
approach to the partitioning of the global database
than horizontal and vertical partitioning of relational
tables. Each partition should itself be an independent
database containing related data such as the geometry
of a part or the spacial relationship of parts in an
assembly. A meta-database would be used to control
access to collections of these partitions. A collection
of partitions comprise the database for a user's design
session. \par
The overhead of traditional database transaction
management is not acceptable for high performance CAD
systems. With the partitioning scheme described above,
transaction management can be performed at a
partition/session granularity. Once the user has
composed the collection of partitions, he has a single
user database. There is no need for concurrency control
or transaction logging except at the meta-database
level. This type of transaction management can in fact
be more functional than traditional transaction
management, allowing for versioning, long transactions,
integrity checking and archival. \par
Object oriented databases need a message model, not a
data model. Any object which responds to the same
messages as an object of ``Duck'' class (walk and
quack) is, for all intents and purposes, a duck. An
attempt to design a data model based on instance
variables of an object or based on collections of
objects of like class violates the data abstraction
facilities of object oriented languages and diminishes
their power. An attempt to implement a relational
database system with an object oriented language yields
a relational database system where you get abstract
data types for free. It does not yield an object
oriented database system. \par
For object oriented queries, the message is the media.
A query can be transformed into an execution plan
consisting of messages sent to database objects.
Optimization decisions can be made by sending messages
to referenced objects. Collection classes can be
implemented for new access methods with cost and
selectivity methods to provide optimization
information. In this way, the query language can grow
with the application. \par
Data representation is an important aspect of object
oriented systems. Most object systems are typeless in
that all instance variables of an object are object
references. For performance sake, object systems should
provide enough of a type mechanism to allow simple data
items (integers, floats, characters, \ldots{}) to be
represented in the form intrinsic to the machine.
Methods can then be compiled for access to typed data.
\par
In conclusion, object systems provide enormous
potential for the development of CAD systems.
Performance influences the approach taken to an
application. WYSIWYG publishing applications were not
attempted until performance was adequate. Functionality
is what sells CAD systems. Database system
functionality can be added to object systems at a
reasonable cost.",

specific formulation of the algorithm for the case of
optimizing complex non-recursive queries that arise in
the study of linear recursion. The query answer is
explicitly represented and manipulated within the {\em
closed semiring\/} of linear relational operators. The
optimization algorithm is applied to a state space that
is constructed from the equivalent algebraic forms of
the query answer. A prototype of the simulated
annealing algorithm has been built and few experiments
have been performed for a limited class of relational
operators. Our initial experience is that, in general,
the algorithm converges to processing strategies that
are very close to the optimal. Moreover, the
traditional processing strategies (e.g., the {\em
semi-naive evaluation\/}) have been found to be, in
general, suboptimal.",

model can be constructed in a bottom-up fashion.
Extensions to the basic grouping mechanism are

membership}, and {\em uniqueness\/} for sets of
possible worlds and we fully classify these problems
with respect to our representation hierarchy. The most
surprising result in this classification is that it is
complete in $2^p$, whether a set of possible worlds
represented by a Codd-table is a subset of a set of
possible worlds represented by a Codd-table with one
conjunction of inequalities. \par
(2) We investigate the data-complexity of querying
incomplete information databases. We examine both
asking for {\em certain facts\/} and for {\em possible
facts}. Our approach is algebraic but our bounds also
apply to logical databases. We show that asking for a
certain fact is coNP-complete, even for a fixed first
order query on a Codd-table. We thus strengthen a lower
bound of [16], who showed that this holds for a
Codd-table with a conjunction of inequalities. For each
fixed positive existential query we present a
polynomial algorithm solving the bounded possible fact
problem of this query on conditioned-tables. We show
that our approach is, in a sense, the best possible, by
deriving two NP-completeness lower bounds for the
bounded possible fact problem when the fixed query
contains either negation or recursion.",

have done and related work that influenced me,
concerning deductive databases over the last 30 years.
It will be convenient to divide this time period into
roughly three equal parts, 1957 - 1968, 1969 - 1978,
1979 - present. For the first portion I will describe
how my interest started in deductive databases in 1957,
at a time when not even the field of databases existed
I will describe work in the beginning years, leading to
the start of deductive databases in about 1968 with the
work of Cordell Green and Bertram Raphael. \par
The second period saw a great deal of work in theorem
proving as well as the introduction of logic
programming. The existence and importance of deductive
databases as a formal and viable discipline received
its impetus at a workshop held in Toulouse, France, in
1977, which culminated in the book, Logic and Data
Bases. The relationship of deductive databases and
logic programming was recognized at that time. During
the third and most recent period we have seen formal
theories of databases come about as an outgrowth of
that work, and the recognition that artificial
intelligence and deductive databases are closely
related, at least through the so-called expert database
systems. I expect that the relationships between
techniques from formal logic, databases, logic
programming, and artificial intelligence will continue
to be explored and the field of deductive databases
will become a more prominent area of computer science
in coming years.",

application-specific database systems on top of a
common database kernel system. The main design problem
considered here is, What features are common enough to
be integrated into the kernel and what features are
rather application-specific? Kernel features must be
simple enough to be efficiently implemented and to
serve a broad class of clients, yet powerful enough to
form a convenient basis for application-oriented
layers. Our kernel provides mechanisms to efficiently
store hierarchically structured complex objects, and
offers operations which are set-oriented and can be
processed in a single scan through the objects. To
achieve high concurrency in a layered system, a
multi-level transaction methodology is applied. First
experiences with our current implementation and some
lessons we have learned from it are reported.",

insertion of additional information into the structure.
These equations can then be solved, either analytically
or numerically, to obtain the population distribution.
Hierarchical data structures are modeled by letting
each population represent the nodes of a given
occupancy. A detailed analysis of quadtree data
structures for storing point data is presented, and the
results are compared to experimental data. Two
phenomena referred to as {\em aging\/} and {\em
phasing\/} are defined and shown to account for the
differences between the experimental results and those
predicted by the model. The population technique is
compared with statistical methods of analyzing similar
data structures.",

has focused on identifying large decidable subclasses

investigate the properties of two such classes the {\em

Although both classes have been defined before, we give
simplified definitions, present short proofs of their
man properties, and describe a method to incorporate
equality. \par
Although evaluable queries have sensible answers, it is
not straightforward to compute them efficiently or
correctly. We introduce {\em relational algebra normal
form\/} for formulas from which form the correct
translation into relational algebra is trivial. We give
algorithms to transform an evaluable formula into an
equivalent {\em allowed\/} formula, and from there into
relational algebra normal form. Our algorithms avoid
use of the so-called {\em Dom\/} relation, consisting
of all constants appearing in the database or the
query. \par
Finally, we describe a restriction under which every
domain independent formula is evaluable, and argue that
evaluable formulas may be the largest decidable

different kinds of feedback include tests and updates
that could be added to the transaction to make it obey
the integrity constraints, as well as predicates

of generating feedback from integrity constraints,
transaction details and theorems constituting both
generic knowledge of database systems and specific

problems similar to those encountered by virtual memory

storage reclamation schemes as applied to objects

reclamation algorithms. The results of modeling the
paging behavior suggest that Mark and Sweep causes many
more input/output operations than Copy-Compact. A
contributing factor to the expense of Mark and Sweep is
that it does not recluster memory as does Copy-Compact.
If memory is not reclustered, the average cost of
accessing data can go up tremendously. Other algorithms
that do not recluster memory also suffer performance
problems, namely all reference counting schemes. The
main advantage of a reference count scheme is that it
does not force a running program to pause for a long
period of time while reclamation takes place, it
amortizes the cost of reclamation across all accesses.
The reclustering of Copy-Compact and the cost
amortization of Reference Count are combined to great
advantage in Baker's algorithm. This algorithm proves
to be the least prohibitive for operating on disk-based

queries be represented as data, not embedded in the
optimizer code. Recognizing that query optimizers are
essentially expert systems, several researchers have
suggested using strategy rules to transform query
execution plans into alternative or better plans.
Though extremely flexible, these systems can be very
inefficient at any step in the processing, many rules
may be eligible for application and complicated
conditions must be tested to determine that eligibility
during unification. We present a constructive,
``building blocks'' approach to defining alternative
plans, in which the rules defining alternatives are an
extension of the productions of a grammar to resemble
the definition of a function in mathematics. The
extensions permit each token of the grammar to be
parametrized and each of its alternative definitions to
have a complex condition. The terminals of the grammar
are base-level database operations on tables that are
interpreted at run-time. The non-terminals are defined
declaratively by production rules that combine those
operations into meaningful plans for execution. Each
production produces a set of alternative plans, each
having a vector of properties, including the estimated
cost of producing that plan. Productions can require
certain properties of their inputs, such as tuple order
and location, and we describe a ``glue'' mechanism for
augmenting plans to achieve the required properties. We
give detailed examples to illustrate the power and
robustness of our rules and to contrast them with
related ideas.",

``Highly-parallel'' implies that load balancing is a

data is so large that operations should be executed
where the data resides. As a result, data placement
becomes a critical performance issue}. \par
{\em In general, determining the optimal placement of
data across processing nodes for performance is a
difficult problem. We describe our heuristic approach
to solving the data placement problem in Bubba. We then
present experimental results using a specific workload

researchers have argued the benefits of declustering (i
e, spreading each base relation over many nodes). We
show that as declustering is increased, load balancing
continues to improve. However, for transactions
involving complex joins, further declustering reduces
throughput because of communications, startup and
termination overhead}. \par

declustering, in a highly-parallel system must be
considered early in the design, so that mechanisms can
be included for supporting variable declustering, for
minimizing the most significant overheads associated

logic programming research that the meaning of a
program can be inferred from its syntax alone. We show
that users may have a variety of intended models for
programs and that a single program may give different
intended models under different assumptions of
semantics. Our conclusion is that it is impossible to
infer the intended model from the syntax of the program
and no single semantics will capture all the intended
models. We propose as a solution an explicit
specification of control. Towards this purpose we
define a rule algebra. The user formulates a program as
an algebraic specification that directs the execution
towards the intended model. The interesting question at
that point is how to efficiently implement such
programs. We show a natural and easy transformation
such that it takes as input an algebraic specification
and produces as output a program belonging to a
subclass of locally stratified programs. Moreover,
there is a homomorphic correspondence between the
algebraic expressions and their translations}.",

projections is modelled by permitting null values in
the base schema. The flavor of the approach is
algebraic, with the collection of all candidate views
of a decomposition modelled within a lattice-like
framework, and the actual decompositions arising as
Boolean subalgebraic. Central to the framework is the
notion of {\em sidimensional join dependency}, which
generalizes the classical notion of join dependency by
allowing the components of the join to be selected
horizontally as well as vertically. Several properties
of such dependencies are presented, including a
generalization of many of the classical results known
to be equivalent to schema acyclicity. Finally, a
characterization of the nature of dependencies which

the redistribution of points among the two grid

90\%, as compared with the 69\% of the standard grid

grid files at least as fast as in the standard grid

abstract = "In this paper we investigate the problem of
synchronising transactions in an object base. An object
base is a collection of objects, much the way a
database is a collection of data. An object, for our
purposes, consists of a collection of variables (whose
values at any point in time comprise the state of that
object) and a set of operations, called methods, that
are the only means of accessing (sensing or modifying)
the object's variables \par
There is a certain sense in which a traditional
database is an object base. It consists of ``objects''
(records, tuples or what have you) each of which has a
state that can be accessed only through the operations
Read and Write. The main difference is that in an
object base, each object supplies its own methods and
these are arbitrary. In particular, a method for a
certain object may call methods of other objects to
carry out its task. In contrast to certain models in
which objects correspond to ``levels of abstraction'',
our model is completely general in this respect for
example, it is permissible for a method of object {$A$}
to call a method of object {$B$} which, in turn, may
call some other method of object {$A$} again \par
One implication of this difference between data and
object bases is that in the latter the assumption,
commonly made in the former, that the operations which
manipulate the state of the objects are short enough to
be implemented serially (one at a time) is no longer
valid. A related implication is that in object bases we
are faced with the necessity of dealing with nested
transactions, since the invocation of one method may
result in further method invocations \par
Another, less fundamental, difference between data and
object bases is that, in addition to being of uniform
type, the ``objects'' of a database are usually assumed
to be of uniform size as well. In an object base one
can imagine objects of widely differing sizes. A clock
and the New York City telephone directory could be
objects differing in size by orders of magnitude, yet
co-existing in the same object base \par
In spite of these differences it is possible to
approach concurrency control in an object base in the
following way. Each object is viewed as a database
item. Further, each method invocation is treated as a
group of Read or Write operations on those data items
that were accessed as a result of that method
invocation. With these analogies, any conventional
database concurrency control method (two-phase locking,
timestamp ordering, certification, and the whole lot)
can be employed to synchronise concurrent transactions
in the object base. This approach has the virtue of
simplicity and may be well-suited to certain
environments. It is, for example, the approach taken in
the GemStone project and product (cf Maier and Stein
[1987], Purdy {\em et al\/} [1987]) \par
We are interested in exploring approaches to
concurrency control in object bases which take into
account their special features and differences from
databases. The hope is that this will lead to more
efficient techniques. More specifically, we would like
to consider mechanisms that \par
Take into account the nested nature of transactions
\par
Allow methods accessing an object to execute
concurrently (but correctly) This seems especially
important as multiprocessors become available, since
forcing serial access to an object's methods restricts
parallelism (bear in mind that each method could be a
lengthy procedure) \par
Are modular, in that each object is responsible for
synchronizing the invocations of its own methods as it
sees fit \par
The first two of these points have been considered by
others as well. For example, Argus (cf Liskov and
Scheifler [1983]) uses a synchronisation algorithm
which is an adaptation of strict two-phase locking in a
nested transaction environment. In addition, Argus
allows multiple concurrent invo",

abstract = "As the size and complexity of processing and
manufacturing systems increases, the need for Database
Management Systems (DBMS) that meet the special needs
of studies that experiment with such systems becomes
more current. System analysts who study the performance
of modern processing systems have to manipulate large
amounts of data in order to profile the behavior of the
system. They have to identify the relationship between
the properties of a compound system and a wide spectrum
of performance metrics. In a recent study in which we
have analyzed a set of distributed concurrency control
algorithms, we performed more than 1400 simulation
experiments. Each experiment was characterized by more
than 6000 input parameters and generated more than 400
output values. It is thus clear that powerful means for
defining the structure and properties of complex
systems are needed, as well as efficient tools to
retrieve the data accumulated in the course of the
study. We are currently engaged in an effort to develop
and implement the DE {\em LAB simulation laboratory\/}
that aims to provide such means and tools for
simulation studies. \par
The goal of the first phase of this effort was to
design and implement a simulation language. It ended in
1986 when the DE {\em NET\/} (Discrete Event NETwork)
simulation language became operational. The language is
based on the concept of Discrete Event System
Specifications (DEVS). It views the simulator as a
collection of self contained objects that communicate
via Discrete Event Connectors that provide a unified
synchronization protocol In the past two years the
language has been used in a number of real life
studies. It was used to simulate distributed processing
environments, communication protocols, and production
lines Several tools have been developed around the
language. All tools adhere to the same modeling
methodology and thus create a cohesive simulation
environment. \par
In the second phase of the DE {\em LAB\/} project we
have been addressing the data management problem DE
{\em NET\/} has been interfaced to a special purpose
relational DBMS that can store descriptions of
simulation runs and provides access to the stored data
Based on our experience with thus DBMS, we have reached
the conclusion that system analysts need to be provided
with a view of the data that differs from the way the
DE {\em NET\/} program views the data, and thus decided
to develop a data model that meets their needs. The
M@@@@SE data model, which is the result of this effort,
has an {\em object oriented\/} flavor. It was developed
with the guidance of potential users and was tested on
a number of real life simulation studies. \par
Although the conception of M@@@@SE was motivated by the
specific needs of a simulation laboratory, we believe
that it addresses the representational needs of many
other environments We have decided to support the
notion of an {\em object}. Every object is assigned a
unique identifier. Depending on their properties
(attributes), objects can simultaneously belong to
several {\em classes}, inheriting properties from all
of them. Among these classes, one is characterized as
the {\em primary\/} class of the object. The notion of
a primary class helps achieving a ``conceptual'' as
well as a physical clustering among similar objects.
Collections of objects are supported as regular objects
in M@@@@SE in the form of sets, multisets (bags), and
arrays. The {\em extent\/} of a class, i.e., the
objects that are known members of the class, is
explicitly stored in the database. Every M@@@@SE
database schema has a straightforward directed graph
representation. Each node represents a class of objects
and is labeled by the class name. Relationships between
the classes in the schema are captured by the arcs of
the graph. Similarly to most object-oriented data
models, M@@@@SE has two major types of arcs {\em
component arcs\/} and {\em inheritance arcs}\ldots{}

abstract = "{\em HutBase\/} is a visual design data manager that
can be used to store and manipulate data objects
created and processed by a variety of design
applications. In particular, HutBase allows the user to
manipulate the data and start applications, and
provides a access mechanism for the applications.
\par
HutBase consists of three software layers. The lowest
layer, the {\em Object Management System\/} (OMS), is
based on the Entity-Relationship model and includes
those basic operations related to the storage and
access of design data objects that are common to all
applications. The database is divided into {\em
workspaces}, which are collections of OMS {\em
objects\/} and {\em relationships\/} organized
according to an application-dependent schema and
forming a significant whole (e.g., a design project)
from the user's point of view Workspace is also the
unit for locking and access control. \par
An object is a collection of {\em attributes}. Each
attribute has a name and value. The name is a string
and the value is an arbitrary sequence of bytes. The
value of an attribute can be of any length, from a
single integer to an external representation of a
complicated geometric model. A relationship is a named
directed connection between two objects. Relationships
have attributes like objects. \par
The OMS library contains functions for creating,
opening and removing workspaces, objects, relationships
and attributes. All operations are carried out within
{\em transactions}. The functions do not change the
permanent data on the disk until the user calls the
{\em save_changes\/} function, which saves the current
state of all workspaces opened in a given transaction.
\par
The next layer is a prototype data model built on top
of OMS, which stores the objects in each workspace as a
hierarchical tree by means of relationships. The leaves
of the hierarchy are called {\em representations\/} and
contain the actual data manipulated by the
applications. Each representation is associated with a
{\em representation type}, which in turn are linked to
the application programs, or {\em tools}. The
representation types and tools are stored as objects in
a separate workspace. \par
The top level contains a user interface and a
procedural application interface. The user interface
shows the available representation types, tools, and
contents of one or more workspaces in iconic form. A
representation can be opened by selecting its icon on
the screen. The tool corresponding to the type of the
representation is then started with a handle to the
representation as argument. The interface also allows
the user to create, remove and copy objects. \par
The tool programs run as subprocesses of the HutBase
process. Tools access the data base by remote procedure
calls that send data base requests from the tool
process to the HutBase process. The tools can also
create relationships between representations and
navigate in the workspace by following the relationship
links. \par
We are currently working on a interpreted definition
language that can be used to describe the structure of
a workspace. The definition language will be based on
an object-oriented notation, where object and relation
types form a class hierarchy. Class descriptions
include (possibly inherited) methods for dealing with
the various HutBase operations. With the contemplated
description facility, new object and relationship types
can be defined by declaring new subclasses of the
existing ones.",

abstract = "Relational database techniques have been used to
create knowledge bases for a medical diagnostic
consultant system. Known as MEDAS (Medical Emergency
Decision Assistance System), this expert system, using
disorder patterns consisting of features such as
symptoms and laboratory results, is able to diagnose
multiple disorders. Database technology has been used
in MEDAS to develop knowledge engineering tools, called
the TOOL BOX, which permit domain experts to create
knowledge without the assistance of a knowledge
engineer. \par
In the process of knowledge development with the TOOL
BOX a standardization of terms was needed. This led us
to design a Feature Dictionary and a grammar to support
a standardized format for features. A common dictionary
of features will allow us to merge knowledge bases,
translate between multi-domain bases, and compare
competing expert systems. In addition, standard
terminology will assist communication across domains
\par
The Feature Dictionary has the following attributes
{\em Long\/} forms of the feature name (White Blood
Count) and {\em short\/} forms (WBC) as well as a three
line description of the feature. The {\em type}, binary
(Abdominal Pain), continuous-valued (WBC), or derived
(pulse pressure = systolic - diastolic) is also kept
for each feature \par
For value features the appropriate {\em unit\/} (cc,
kg, etc.) as well as {\em range\/} limits are stored so
that these can be used as a form of quality control on
input. The {\em permanence\/} (Y/N) of each feature is
kept so it is possible to automatically include
permanent features in future encounters. In addition,
for each feature three separate ``{\em cost\/}''
parameters are kept. {\em Risk\/} measures the danger
to the patient from no risk such as taking a blood
pressure to highly invasive proceedings such as a liver
biopsy. {\em Time\/} measures whether results can be
expected in minutes, hours, or days. {\em Money\/}
measures the actual cost to the patient FD-Equivalents
stores the synonyms and antonyms of each feature. These
are used to translate between knowledge bases using
different terminology. \par
Features were first classified in terms of a Problem
Oriented Medical Record. We have added an anatomical
reclassification in terms of body systems. Experts will
be able to add new kinds of feature classifications.
\par
MEDAS, a multi-membership Bayesian model, needs binary
representations for its inference. These Binary
Features are created by the expert physician in the
given disorder patterns. For example, ``WBC 50,000'',
or ``Age 2 Female Hematocrit 42'' are binary features
that might appear in a disorder pattern. Laboratory
results often lead to a multiplicity of binary features
(such as ``WBC 3,000'', or 3,000 WBC 10,000, etc.). Our
design allows the user to enter the value of such a
feature and have the system set of all the
corresponding binary features. This intelligent user
interface is controlled by a grammar that allows us to
parse the binary features and generate rules for them.
\par
The knowledge base for a particular problem domain such
as OB/GYN is organized as a collection of disorder
patterns. Each of these is represented as a list of
binary features and associated probabilities. The
domain knowledge base contains only the features
relevant to that domain. \par
Experience with the Feature Dictionary has convinced us
that there are many advantages in using a DBMS to store
the knowledge base for an expert system. The TOOL BOX,
originally in ACCENT-R, was rewritten in dBase III for
the PC. The knowledge bases created on the PC were then
ported to the mainframe. As the number of domains
supported by MEDAS grew, it became evident that we
needed a DBMS that could function in both environments
so we are in the process of converting to ORACLE.",

It is desirable to associate one Herbrand model with a
program and think of that model as the ``meaning of the

queries directed to the program would be answered in
accordance with this model. We introduce {\em unfounded
sets\/} and {\em well-founded partial models}, and
define the well-founded semantics of a program to be
its well-founded partial model. If the well-founded
partial model is in fact a model, we call it the {\em
well-founded\/} model, and say the program is
``well-behaved''. We show that the class of
well-behaved programs properly includes previously
studied classes of ``stratified'' and ``locally
stratified'' programs Gelfand and Lifschits have
proposed a definition of ``unique stable model'' for
general logic programs. We show that a program has a
unique stable model if it has a well-founded model, in

abstract = "In this paper we discuss the optimization of
multiple-relation multiple-disjunct queries in a
relational database system. Since optimization
techniques for conjunctive (single disjunct) queries in
relational databases are well known [Smith75, Wong76,
Selinger79, Yao79, Youssefi79], the natural way to
evaluate a multiple-disjunct query was to execute each
disjunct independently [Bernstein81, Kerschberg82]
However, evaluating each disjunct independently may be
very inefficient. In this paper, we develop methods
that merge two or more disjuncts to form a term. The
advantage of merging disjuncts to form terms lies in
the fact that each term can be evaluated with a single
scan of each relation that is present in the term. In
addition, the number of times a join is performed will
also be reduced when two or more disjuncts are merged.
The criteria for merging a set of disjuncts will be
presented. As we will see, the number of times each
relation in the query is scanned will be equal to the
number of terms. Thus, minimizing the number of terms
will minimize the number of scans for each relation. We
will formulate the problem of minimizing the number of
scans as one of covering a merge graph by a minimum
number of complete merge graphs which are a restricted
class of Cartesian product graphs. In general, the
problem of minimizing the number of scans is
NP-complete. We present polynomial time algorithms for
special classes of merge graphs. We also present a
heuristic for general merge graphs. \par
Throughout this paper, we will assume that no relations
have any indices on them and that we are only concerned
with reducing the number of scans for each relation
present in the query. What about relations that have
indices on them? It turns out that our performance
metric of reducing the number of scans is beneficial
even in the case that there are indices. In
[Muralikrishna88] we demonstrate that when optimizing
single-relation multiple-disjunct queries, the cost
(measured in terms of disk accesses) may be reduced if
all the disjuncts are optimized together rather than
individually. Thus, our algorithm for minimizing the
number of terms is also very beneficial in cases where
indices exist",

in the database. Several methods are possible for
processing queries that retrieve the value returned by
a database procedure. The conventional algorithm is to
execute the queries in a procedure whenever it is
accessed. A second strategy requires caching the
previous value returned by the database procedure. If
the cached value is valid at the time of a query, the
value is returned immediately. If the cached value has
been invalidated by an update, the value is recomputed,
stored back into the cache, and then returned. A third
strategy uses a differential view maintenance algorithm
to maintain an up-to-date copy of the value returned by
the procedure. This paper compares the performance of
these three alternatives. The results show that which
algorithm is preferred depends heavily on the database
environment, particularly, the frequency of updates and
the size of objects retrieved by database procedures.",

abstract = "The by now conventional perspective on databases,
especially deductive databases, is that they are sets
of first order sentences. As such, they can be said to
be claims about the truths of some {\em external\/}
world, the database is a symbolic representation of
that world. \par
While agreeing with this account of what a database is,
I disagree with how, both in theory and practice, a
database is {\em used}, specifically how it is queried
and how its integrity is enforced. \par
Virtually all approaches to database query evaluation
treat queries as first order formulas, usually with
free variables whose bindings resulting from the
evaluation phase define the answers to the query. The
sole exception to this is the work of Levesque (1981,
1984), who argues that queries should be formulas in an
epistemic modal logic. Queries, in other words, should
be permitted to address aspects of the external world
as represented in the database, as well as aspects of
the database itself i.e., aspects of what the database
{\em knows}. To take a simple example, suppose {\em DB
= p y q\/} \par
Query $p$ (i.e., is $p$ true in the external world?)
\par
Answer unknown \par
Query {\em Kp\/} (i e. do you know whether $p$ is true
in the external world?) \par
Answer no \par
Levesque's modal logic (called KFOPCE) distinguishes
between known and unknown individuals in the database
and thus accounts for ``regular'' database values as
well as null values. For example, if {\em KB\/} is
\par
{Teach (John, Math100), ($x$) Teach ({\em x}, CS100),
Teach (Mary, Psych100) y Teach (Sue, Psych100)},
\par
then \par
Query ($x$) {$K$} Teach (John, $x$) i.e., is there a
known course which John teaches? \par
Answer yes-Math100 \par
Query ($x$) {$K$} Teach ({\em x}, CS100) i e is there a
known teacher for CS100? \par
Answer No \par
Query ($x$) Teach ({\em x}, Psych100) i.e., does anyone
teach Psych 100? \par
Answer: Yes - Mary or Sue \par
Query ($x$) {$K$} Teach ({\em x}, Psych100) i.e., is
there a known teacher of Psych100? \par
Answer No \par
Levesque (1981, 1984) provides a semantics for his
language KFOPCE FOPCE, is the first order language
KFOPCE without the modal K Levesque proposes that a
database is best viewed as a set of FOPCE sentences,
and that it be queried by sentences of KFOPCE. He
further provides a (noneffective) way of answering
database queries. \par
Recently I have considered the concept of a static
integrity constraint in the context of Levesque's
KFOPCE (Reiter 1988). The conventional view of
integrity constraints is that, like the database
itself, they too are first order formulas (e.g., Lloyd
Topor (1985), Nicolas Yazdanian (1978), Reiter (1984)).
There are two definitions in the literature of a
deductive database {\em KB\/} satisfying an integrity
constraint {\em IC}. \par
{\em Definition 1\/} Consistency (e.g., Kowalski
(1978), Sadri and Kowalski (1987)) {\em KB satisfies IC
if f KB + IC is satisfiable\/} \par
{\em Definition 2\/} Entailment (e.g., Lloyd and Topor
(1985), Reiter (1984)) {\em KB satisfies IC if f KB
@@@@ IC\/} \par
Alas, neither definition seems correct. Consider a
constraint requiring that employees have social
security numbers (V $x$) {\em emp\/} ($x$ ) ($y$) {\em
ss\#\/} ({\em x y\/}) (1) \par
1 Suppose {\em KB\/} = {emp (Mary)} Then {\em KB +
IC\/} is satisfiable. But intuitively, we want the
constraint to require {\em KB\/} to contain a ss\#

concurrent execution is considered to be correct if it

Serializability has proven to be a highly useful
concept for transaction systems for data-processing
style applications. Recent interest in applying
database concepts to applications in computer-aided
design, office information systems, etc. has resulted
in transactions of relatively long duration. For such
transactions, there are serious consequences to
requiring serializability as the notion of correctness.
Specifically, such systems either impose long-duration
waits or require the abortion of long transactions. In
this paper, we define a transaction model that allows
for several alternative notions of correctness without
the requirement of serializability. After introducing
the model, we investigate classes of schedules for
transactions. We show that these classes are richer
than analogous classes under the classical model.
Finally, we show the potential practicality of our
model by describing protocols that permit a transaction
manager to allow correct non-serializable executions",

and knowledge bases (semantic data models, conceptual
modeling languages, Al frames) is that they offer as a
basic paradigm the notion of objects grouped into
classes, which are themselves organized in subclass
hierarchies. Through ideas such as inheritance and
bounded polymorphism, this feature supports the
technique of ``{\em abstraction by generalization\/}'',
which has been argued to be of importance in designing
Information Systems [11, 2]. \par
We provide in this paper examples demonstrating that in
some applications {\em over-generalization\/} is likely
to occur an occasional natural subclass may contradict
in some way one if its superclass definitions, and thus
turn out not to be a strict subtype of this superclass.
A similar problem arises when an object is allowed to
be a member of several classes which make incompatible
predictions about its type. We argue that none of the
previous approaches suggested to deal with such
situations is entirely satisfactory. \par
A language feature is therefore presented to permit
class definitions which contradict aspects of other
classes, such as superclasses, in an object-based
language. In essence, the approach requires
contradictions among class definitions to be {\em
explicitly\/} acknowledged. We define a semantics of
the resulting language, which restores the condition
that subclasses are both subsets and subtypes, and
deals correctly with the case when an object can belong
to several classes. This is done by separating the
notions of ``class'' and ``type'', and it allows query
compilers to detect type errors as well as eliminate
some run-time checks in queries, even in the presence
of ``contradictory'' class definitions.",

underlying idea is to monotonically build up a set of
{\em negative\/} conclusions until the least fixpoint
is reached, using a transformation related to the one
that defines stable models, developed by Gelfand and
Lifschitz. From a fixed set of negative conclusions, we
can derive the positive conclusions that follow
(without deriving any further negative ones), by
traditional Horn clause semantics. The union of
positive and negative conclusions is called the {\em
alternating fixpoint partial model}. The name
``alternating'' was chosen because the transformation
runs in two passes; the first pass transforms an
underestimate of the set of negative conclusions into
an (intermediate) overestimate; the second pass
transforms the overestimates into a new underestimate;
the composition of the two passes is monotonic.
\par
Our main theorem is that the alternating fixpoint
partial model is exactly the well-founded partial
model. \par
We also show that a system is {\em fixpoint logic},
which permits rule bodies to be first order formulas
but requires inductive relations to be positive within
them, can be transformed straightforwardly into a
normal logic program whose alternating fixpoint partial
model corresponds to the least fixpoint of the fixpoint
logic system. Thus alternating fixpoint logic is at
least as expressive as fixpoint logic. The converse is
shown to hold for finite structures.",

extensional lists of values or as descriptions that
necessarily hold of all possible answers, and (iii) an
easily extensible schema, which can be accessed

approach is that the same language plays multiple roles
in the processes of defining and populating the DB, as
well as querying and answering. \par
CLASSIC (for which we have a prototype main-memory
implementation) can actively discover new information
about objects from several sources: it can recognize
new classes under which an object falls based on a
description of the object, it can propagate some
deductive consequences of DB updates, it has simple
procedural recognizers, and it supports a limited form
of forward-chaining rules to derive new conclusions
about known objects. \par
The kind of language of descriptions and queries
presented here provides a new arena for the search for

recovery from media failures in database systems. Both
techniques achieve high availability by having two

of each relation across two identical sets of disks.
``Interleaved declustering'' spreads two copies of each
relation across one set of disks while keeping both
copies of each tuple on separate disks. Both techniques
pay the same costs of doubling storage requirements and
requiring updates to be applied to both copies}.

{\em Mirroring offers greater simplicity and
universality. Recovery can be implemented at lower
levels of the system software (e.g., the disk
controller). For architectures that do not share disks
globally, it allows global and local cluster indexes to
be independent. Also, mirroring does not require data
to be declustered (i.e., spread over multiple disks)}.
\par
{\em Interleaved declustering offers significant
improvements in recovery time, mean time to loss of
both copies of some data, throughput during normal
operation, and response time during recovery. For all
architectures, interleaved declustering enables data to
be spread over twice as many disks for improved load
balancing. We show how tuning for interleaved
declustering is simplified because it is dependent only
on a few parameters that are usually well known for a
specific workload and system configuration}.",

sets, the regular schemas correspond to most
implemented OODB systems in the literature; a {\em
value-based\/} semantics for sets is also introduced.
Without restrictions, both of these approaches support
the specification of all computable queries. Assuming
that the new operator is prohibited, the query language
of the regular OODB schemas under the object-based
semantics is complete in PSPACE; and under the
value-based semantics it has hyper-exponential
complexity. The third approach to modeling sets is
given by the {\em algebraic OODB\/} model, in which
multi-valued attributes rather than set-valued types
are supported. method implementations can use operators
stemming from the relational algebra, and do not have
side-effects. The query language of algebraic OODBs is
more powerful than the relational algebra but has
complexity bounded by PTIME. The expressive power and
complexity of data access for other variations of OODBs
are also considered. Finally, a new relational query
language, called {\em algebra\/} + {\em pointwise
recursion}, is introduced. This is equivalent to the
algebraic OODB language, and can compute generalized
transitive closure.",

queries from a group of queries, and updating
materialized views are important database problems and
have attracted much attention. One thing common to
these problems is their demand to quickly solve the
implication problem -- given two predicates {$Q$} and
??, can {$Q$} imply ({$Q$})? The implication problem
has been solved by converting it into a satisfiability
problem. Based on a graph representation, a detailed
study of the general implication problem on its own is
presented in this paper. We proved that the general
implication problem, in which all six comparison
operators: =, , , , , , as well as conjunctions and
disjunctions are allowed, is NP-hard. In the case when
``'' operators are not allowed in {$Q$} and
disjunctions are not allowed in , a polynomial time
algorithm is proposed to solve this restricted
implication problem. The influence of the ``'' operator
and disjunctions are studied. Our theoretical results
show that for some special cases the polynomial
complexity algorithm can solve the implication problem
which allows the ``'' operator or disjunctions in the
predicates. Necessary conditions for detecting when the
``'' operator and disjunctions are allowed are also
given. These results are very useful in creating
heuristic methods.",

generalizes the set difference, on algebraic
expressions of universal quantifiers that avoid the

abstract = "Access methods for multidimensional data have
attracted much research interest in recent years. In
general, the data structures proposed for this problem
partition the database into a set of disk pages
(buckets). Access to the buckets is provided by
searching a directory of some type such as a tree
directory or inverted index or by computation of a
multiattribute hash function. Examples of the first
approach are Multidimensional B-trees[Sch82], K-D-B
trees[Rob81] (see also [Sam84] for a survey of these
methods) whereas multiattribute hashing methods are
described for example in [Rot74],[Aho79],[Riv76] and
[Ram83]. In addition, there are also hybrid methods
which combine hashing with a directory of some type
[Ore84],[Nie84], [Fag79]. \par
In all the work mentioned above, the performance is
measured in terms of the number of disk accesses made
to retrieve the answer without distinguishing whether
these are sequential or random. We argue that
performance measurements must consider this factor in
order to be realistic, especially in the single user
environment. Some evidence to support this claim is
given in [Sal88, pg. 22] with the IBM 3380 disk drive
as an example. For this type of disk, a comparison
between accessing $m$ blocks randomly and accessing a
contiguous cluster of $m$ blocks is made. The results
show that for $m$ = 10, the random access is slower by
a factor of about 8 than the clustered one whereas for
$m$ = 100 it is slower by a factor of 25. \par
Another motivation for this work are optical disks. In
this case, there is a big advantage in clustering since
the access mechanism on many of these drives is
equipped with an adjustable mirror which allows slight
deflections of the laser beam. This means that it may
be possible to read a complete cluster from a sequence
of adjacent tracks beneath the head with a single
random seek [Chri88]. \par
Our work is inspired by an interesting recent paper
[Fal86] which proposes to organize the physical layout
of a multiattribute hash file by encoding record
signatures using gray code rather than simple binary
code. In this way neighboring buckets contain records
which differ on a single bit in their signatures. It is
then proved that the records which form the answer to a
partial match query will tend to be contained in a
smaller number of clusters as compared with the binary
arrangement. It is also shown that this idea is
applicable to many other multiattribute hashing schemes
with a small amount of overhead. In addition, it can
improve access time to directories of grid type files,
extendible hashing and file methods which employ the
z-ordering [Ore84].",

delete followed by an insert. Assuming that nodes only
merge when they are empty (the technique used in most

utilization is 39\% as M becomes large. We extend this
model to a parameterized mixture of inserts and

just 10\% inserts, then the utilization is over 62\%. We
also calculated the probability of splitting and

abstract = "The problem examined is to distribute a binary
Cartesian product file on multiple disks to maximize
the parallelism for partial match queries. Cartesian
product files appear as a result of some secondary key
access methods, such as the multiattribute hashing
[10], the grid file [6] etc.. For the binary case, the
problem is reduced into grouping the 2 $n$ binary
strings on $n$ bits in $m$ groups of unsimilar strings.
The main idea proposed in this paper is to group the
strings such that the group forms an Error Correcting
Code (ECC). This construction guarantees that the
strings of a given group will have large Hamming
distances, i.e., they will differ in many bit
positions. Intuitively, this should result into good
declustering. We briefly mention previous heuristics
for declustering, we describe how exactly to build a
declustering scheme using an ECC, and we prove a
theorem that gives a necessary condition for our method
to be optimal. Analytical results show that our method
is superior to older heuristics, and that it is very
close to the theoretical (non-tight) bound.",

update-in-place and deferred-update. While each
requires operations to conflict if they do not
``commute,'' the two recovery methods require subtly
different notions of commutativity. We give a precise
characterization of the conflict relations that work
with each recovery method, and show that each permits
conflict relations that the other does not. Thus, the
two recovery methods place incomparable constraints on
concurrency control. Our analysis applies to arbitrary

logical systems along these lines, but the complexity

explored. It has been shown, for instance, that the
data-complexity of these logics is {\em PSPACE\/}
-complete in the function-free, predicate case. This
paper extends this line of research by developing
syntactic restrictions with lower complexity. These
restrictions are based on two ideas from Horn-clause
logic: {\em linear recursion\/} and {\em stratified
negation}. In particular, a notion of stratification is
developed in which negation-as-failure alternates with
linear recursion. The complexity of such rulebases
depends on the number of layers of stratification. The
result is a hierarchy of syntactic classes which
corresponds exactly in the polynomial-time hierarchy of
complexity classes. In particular, rulebases with $k$
strata are data-complete for {$P$} $h$ . Furthermore,
these rulebases provide a complete characterization of
the relational queries in {$P$} $h$ . That is, any
query whose graph is in {$P$} $h$ can be represented as
a set of hypothetical rules with $k$ strata. Unlike
other expressibility results in the literature, this
result does not require the data domain to be linearly
ordered.",

Spatial indexes based on z-order permit this

magnetic technology for applications that are mainly
archival in nature but require the ability to do

performance from WORM optical discs and the utilization
of disc storage space when one of these organizations

one of fast sequential retrieval of the contents of a

model of a specific instance of such an organization (a
buffered hash file scheme) is described that allows for
the specification of retrieval performance objectives.
Alternative strategies for managing data replication
that allow trade offs between higher consumption rates
and better average retrieval performance are also
described. We then provide an expected value analysis

WORM disc to meet specified performance limits. The
analysis is general enough to allow easy extension to

structure based on Malcolm Easton's Write Once B-tree.

The Write Once B-tree was developed for data stored

Current data {\em must\/} be stored on an {\em

Historical data {\em may\/} be stored on {\em any\/}
random-access device, including WORMs, erasable optical
disks, and magnetic disks. The point is to use a faster
and more expensive device for the current data and a
slower cheaper device for the historical data. \par
The splitting policies have been changed to reduce
redundancy in the structure--the option of pure key
splits as in B + -trees and a choice of split times for
time-based splits enable this performance enhancement.
\par
When data is migrated from the current to the
historical database, it is consolidated and appended to
the end of the historical database, allowing for high
space utilization in WORM disk sectors. \par

data to eliminate some of the functional joins that

refer to our technique for replicating data as {\em
field replication\/} because it allows individual data
fields to be selectively replicated. In the paper we
describe how field replication can be specified at the
data model level and we present storage-level
mechanisms to efficiently support it. We also present
an analytical cost model to give some feel for how
beneficial field replication can be and the
circumstances under which it breaks down. While field
replication is a relatively simple notion, the analysis
shows that it can provide significant performance gains
in many situations.",

of orthogonal semantics on the references. In this

composite objects which does not suffer from these

contribution by exploring the use of composite objects
as a unit for versions, physical clustering, and

Observing from our measurements that real CAD

propose a run-time clustering algorithm whose initial
evaluation indicates that system response time can be
improved by a factor of 200\% when the read/write ratio
is high. We have also found it useful to limit the
amount of I/O allowed to the clustering algorithm as it
examines candidate pages for clustering at run-time.
Basically, there is little performance distinction
between limiting reclustering to a few I/Os or many, so
a low limit on I/O appears to be acceptable. We also
examine, under a variety of workload assumptions,
context-sensitive buffer replacement policies with
alternative prefetching policies.",

this check is implemented very efficiently. Another
merit of the proposed scheme is that the problem of
determining an {\em optimal\/} acceptance set is
formulated as a {\em sparse 0-1 linear programming

handled using the very rich class of existing

This permits modular development of multiversion

the convenient manipulation of text. It is even more
difficult to use them if the text language is not based

good example of this case. Many projects have attempted
to use conventional database systems for Arabic data
manipulation (including text data), but because of
Arabic's many differences with English, these projects
have met with limited success. In the Bayan project,
the approach has been different. Instead of simply
trying to adopt an environment to Arabic, the
properties of the Arabic language were the starting
point and everything was designed to meet the needs of
Arabic, thus avoiding the shortcomings of other
projects. A text database management system was
designed to overcome the shortcomings of conventional
database management systems in manipulating text data.
Bayan's data model is based on an object-oriented
approach which helps the extensibility of the system
for future use. In Bayan, we designed the database with
the Arabic text properties in mind. We designed it to
support the way Arabic words are derived, classified,
and constructed. Furthermore, linguistic algorithms
(for word generation and morphological decomposition of
words) were designed, leading to a formalization of
rules of Arabic language writing and sentence
construction. A user interface was designed on top of
this environment. A new representation of the Arabic
characters was designed, a complete Arabic keyboard
layout was created, and a window-based Arabic user
interface was also designed.",

secondary memory, and we wish to compute its transitive
closure, also storing the result in secondary memory.
We assume that an amount of main memory capable of
holding $s$ ``values'' is available, and that $s$ lies
between $n$, the number of nodes of the graph, and $e$,
the number of arcs. The cost measure we use for
algorithms is the {\em I/O complexity\/} of Kung and
Hong, where we count 1 every time a value is moved into
main memory from secondary memory, or vice versa.
\par
In the dense case, where $e$ is close to $n^2$, we show
that I/O equal to $(n^3 / s)$ is sufficient to compute
the transitive closure of an $n$ -node graph, using
main memory of size $s$. Moreover, it is necessary for
any algorithm that is ``standard,'' in a sense to be
defined precisely in the paper. Roughly, ``standard''
means that paths are constructed only by concatenating
arcs and previously discovered paths. This class
includes the usual algorithms that work for the
generalization of transitive closure to semiring
problems. For the sparse case, we show that I/O equal
to $(n^2 e / s)$ is sufficient, although the algorithm
we propose meets our definition of ``standard'' only if
the underlying graph is acyclic. We also show that
$(n^2 e / s)$ is necessary for any standard algorithm
in the sparse case. That settles the I/O complexity of
the sparse/acyclic case, for standard algorithms. It is
unknown whether this complexity can be achieved in the
sparse, cyclic case, by a standard algorithm, and it is
unknown whether the bound can be beaten by nonstandard
algorithms. \par
We then consider a special kind of standard algorithm,
in which paths are constructed only by concatenating
arcs and old paths, never by concatenating two old
paths. This restriction seems essential if we are to
take advantage of sparseness. Unfortunately, we show
that almost another factor of $n$ I/O is necessary.
That is, there is an algorithm in this class using I/O
$(n^3 e / s)$ for arbitrary sparse graphs, including
cyclic ones. Moreover, every algorithm in the
restricted class must use $(n^3 e / s / \log^3 n)$ I/O,
on some cyclic graphs.",

derivable facts involving an $n$ -ary predicate are
viewed as a set of points in the positive orthant of
{\em R n}. We investigate a method of deriving
constraints on the feasible set in the form of a
polyhedral convex set in the positive orthant, which we
call a {\em polycone}. Faces of this polycone represent
inequalities proven to hold among the argument sizes.
These inequalities are often useful for selecting an
evaluation method that is guaranteed to terminate for a
given logic procedure. The methods may be applicable to
other languages in which the sizes of data structures
can be determined syntactically. \par
We introduce a {\em generalized Tucker
representation\/} for systems of linear equations and
show how needed operations on polycones are performed
in this representation. We prove that every polycone
has a unique {\em normal form\/} in this
representation, and give an algorithm to produce it.
This in turn gives a decision procedure for the
question of whether two set of linear equations define
the same polycone. \par
When a predicate has several rules, the union of the
individual rule's polycones gives the set of feasible
argument size vectors for the predicate. Because this
set is not necessarily convex, we instead operate with
the smallest enclosing polycone, which is the closure
of the convex hull of the union. Retaining convexity is
one of the key features of our technique.
\par
Recursion is handled by finding a polycone that is a
fixpoint of a transformation that is derived from both
the recursive and nonrecursive rules. Some methods for
finding a fixpoint are presented, but there are many
unresolved problems in this area.",

languages, such as {\em DATALOG\/} and {\em stratified
DATALOGS}, is limited in a sense that some useful
queries such as functions involving {\em aggregation\/}
are not definable in these languages. Our concern in
this paper is to provide a uniform logic framework for
deductive databases with greater expressive power. It
has been shown that with a linear ordering on the
domain of the database, the expressive power of some
database languages can be enhanced so that some
functions involving aggregation can be defined. Yet, a
direct implementation of the linear ordering in
deductive database languages may seem unintuitive, and
may not be very efficient to use in practice. We
propose a logic for deductive databases which employs
the notion of ``identifying each tuple in a relation''.
Through the use of these {\em tuple-identifications},
different linear orderings are defined as a result.
This intuitively explains the reason why our logic has
greater expressive power. The proposed logic language
is {\em non-deterministic\/} in nature. However,
non-determinism is not the real reason for the enhanced
expressive power. A deterministic subset of the
programs in this language is {\em computational
complete\/} in the sense that it defines all the {\em
computable deterministic queries}. Although the problem
of deciding whether a program is in this subset is in
general undecidable, we do provide a rather general
sufficient test for identifying such programs. Also
discussed in this paper is an extended notion of
queries which allows both the input and the output of a
query to contain {\em interpreted constants\/} of an
infinite domain. We show that extended queries
involving aggregation can also be defined in the
language.",

parallelize Volcano, we had to choose between two

the novel operator model, and provide details of
Volcano's {\em exchange\/} operator that parallelizes
all other operators. It allows intra-operator
parallelism on partitioned datasets and both vertical
and horizontal inter-operator parallelism. The exchange
operator encapsulates all parallelism issues and
therefore makes implementation of parallel database
algorithms significantly easier and more robust.
Included in this encapsulation is the translation
between demand-driven dataflow within processes and
data-driven dataflow between processes. Since the
interface between Volcano operators is similar to the
one used in ``real,'' commercial systems, the
techniques described here can be used to parallelize
other query processing engines.",

complexity of crash recovery. In addition, multi-level

than employing special tricks. It is important to note,
though, that simplicity is not achieved at the expense

extensively studied in the database and transaction
processing literature, but little has been said about
the handling of the {\em requests\/} for transaction
execution in commercial TP systems, especially
distributed ones, managing the flow of requests is
often as important as executing the transactions
themselves. \par
This paper studies fault-tolerant protocols for
managing the flow of transaction requests between
clients that issue requests and servers that process
them. We discuss how to implement these protocols using
transactions and {\em recoverable queuing systems}.
Queuing systems are used to move requests reliably
between clients and servers. The protocols use queuing
systems to ensure that the server processes each
request exactly once and that a client processes each
reply at least once. We treat request-reply protocols
for single-transaction requests, for multi-transaction
requests, and for requests that require interaction
with the display after the request is submitted.",

semantics, and makes every ground literal true or
false. Modularly stratified programs are all weakly
stratified, but the converse is false. Unlike some
weakly stratified programs, modularly stratified
programs can be evaluated in a subgoal-at-a-time
fashion. We demonstrate a technique for rewriting a
modularly stratified program for bottom-up evaluation
and extend this rewriting to include magic-set
techniques. The rewritten program, when evaluated
bottom-up, gives the same answers as the well-founded
semantics. We discuss extending modular stratification

the latter requires the use of the undefined only when

the factoring, and the ``difficult-to-be-assigned''. In
the modified formalization, the first two can be
successfully identified and branched into multiple

formalize a framework of knowledge-rich databases, and
a simple query language consisting of a pair of

statement is for querying the data (it corresponds to
the basic retrieval statement of various knowledge-rich
database systems). The describe statement is for
querying the knowledge. Essentially, it inquires about

``ordered logic programming'', which includes some
abstractions of the object-oriented paradigm, is
presented. An ordered program consists of a number of
modules (objects), where each module is composed by a
number of rules possibly with negated head predicates.
A sort of ``isa'' hierarchy can be defined among the
modules in order to allow for rule inheritance.
Therefore, every module sees its own rules as local
rules and the rules of the other modules to which it is
connected by the ``isa'' hierarchy as global rules. In
this way, as local rules may hide global rules, it is
possible to deal with default properties and
exceptions. This new approach represents a novel
attempt to combine the logic paradigm with the
object-oriented one in knowledge base systems.
Moreover, this approach provides a new ground for
explaining some recent proposals of semantics for
classical logic programs with negation in the rule
bodies and gives an interesting semantics to logic
programs with negated rule heads}.",

{\em ACTA\/} is a formalizable framework developed for
characterizing the whole spectrum of interactions. The
ACTA framework is {\em not\/} yet another transaction
model, but is intended to unify the existing models.
ACTA allows for specifying the {\em structure\/} and
the {\em behavior\/} of transactions as well as for
reasoning about the concurrency and recovery properties
of the transactions. In ACTA, the semantics of
interactions are expressed in terms of transactions'
effects on the commit and abort of other transactions
and on objects' state and concurrency status (i.e.,
synchronization state). Its ability to capture the
semantics of previously proposed transaction models is
indicative of its generality. The reasoning
capabilities of this framework have also been tested by
using the framework to study the properties of a new
model that is derived by combining two existing
transaction models.",

motivated using pragmatic and theoretical

resolves some difficulties concerning the expressive
power of deterministic languages: there are
non-deterministic languages expressing low complexity
classes of queries/updates, whereas no such
deterministic languages exist. Various mechanisms
yielding non-determinism are reviewed. The focus is on
two closely related families of non-deterministic
languages. The first consists of extensions of {\em
Datalog\/} with negations in bodies and/or heads of
rules, with non-deterministic fixpoint semantics. The
second consists of non-deterministic extensions of
first-order logic and fixpoint logics, using the {\em
witness\/} operator. The ability of the various
non-deterministic languages to express {\em
deterministic\/} transformation is characterized. In
particular, non-deterministic languages expressing
exactly the queries/updates computable in polynomial
time are exhibited, whereas it is conjectured that no
analogous deterministic language exists. The connection
between non-deterministic languages and determinism is
also explored. Several problems of practical interest
are examined, such as checking (statically or
dynamically) if a given program is deterministic,
detecting coincidence of deterministic and
non-deterministic semantics, and verifying termination

relational data manipulation languages, our production

of changes to the database and may perform sets of
changes. The condition and action parts of our
production rules may refer to the current state of the
database as well as to the sets of changes triggering
the rules. We define a syntax for production rule
definition as an extension to SQL. A model of system
behavior is used to give an exact semantics for
production rule execution, taking into account
externally-generated operations, self-triggering rules,
and simultaneous triggering of multiple rules.",

implementation of magic in Starburst ([HFLP89]). We

We show in this paper that the following parameters of
the real-time database system - its policy for dealing
with transactions whose constraints are not met, its
knowledge of transaction resource requirements, and the
availability of resources - have a significant impact
on the relative performance of the concurrency control
algorithms. In particular, we demonstrate that under a
policy that discards transactions whose constraints are
not met, optimistic concurrency control outperforms
locking over a wide range of system utilization. We
also outline why, for a variety of reasons, optimistic
algorithms appear well-suited to real-time database
systems.",

expression, the best of which has to be determined
according to the application-specific database usage

abstract = "Querying databases to obtain information requires the
user's knowledge of query language and underlying data.
However, because the knowledge in human long-term
memory is imprecise, incomplete, and often incorrect,
user queries are subject to various types of failure.
These may include spelling mistakes, the violation of
the syntax and semantics of a query language, and the
misconception of the entities and relationships in a
database. \par
Kaleidoscope is a cooperative query interface whose
knowledge guides users to avoid most failure during
query creation. We call this type of cooperative
behavior {\em intraquery guidance}. To enable this
early, active engagement in the user's process of query
creation, Kaleidoscope reduces the granularity of
user-system interaction via a context-sensitive menu.
The system generates valid query constituents as menu
choices step-by-step by interpreting a language
grammar, and the user creates a query following this
menu guidance[2]. For instance, it takes four steps to
create the following query [Q1] Who/ {\em 1\/}
authored/ {\em 2\/} `Al'/ {\em 3\/} journal papers/
{\em (3+)\/} in `Postquery COOP'/ {\em 4\/} \par
At each of such steps, as the user selects one of menu
choices, the system updates its partial query status
window. If a choice is unique as in {\em (3+)}, it is
taken automatically. To guide the user's entry of
values, the system provides a pop-up menu for each
value domain. \par
With Kaleidoscope's process of choice generation
tightly controlled by the system's knowledge of query
language and underlying data, users need not remember
the query language and the underlying database
structure but merely recognize or identify the
constituents coming one after another that match their
intended query. The system provides additional guidance
for users to avoid creating semantically inconsistent
queries. It informs the user of any derived predicates
on the completion of a user-selected predicate. To
illustrate this, consider a partially constructed SQL
query [Q2] SELECT * FROM professor p\#1 WHERE p\#1 dept
= `CS' AND p\#1 salary 40000 \par
Suppose that the system has an integrity constraint
[IC] FROM professor p IF p dept = `CS' AND p salary
45000 THEN p rank = `Assistant' \par
This rules states that a CS professor whose salary is
less than 45000 is an assistant professor. With the
replacement of rule variable p in IC by Q2's range
variable p\#1, IC's leading two predicates subsume Q2's
query condition, producing p\#1 rank = `Assistant'.
Because this derived predicate is not subsumed by Q2's
query condition, the system suspects that the user may
not know of it and presents it to the user.
\par
Derived predicates, together with user-selected ones,
constrain the user's further conjunctive extension of
the partial query condition. For example, the system
prunes the field rank (as well as the field dept) in
the conjunctive extension of Q2, because the derived
condition restricts the value of this field to a
constant. \par
As shown in examples, we apply Kaleidoscope's approach
to two linear-syntax languages in different levels of
abstraction SQL[1] and a query language whose syntax
and semantics cover a subset of {\em wh\/} -queries. To
implement the intraquery guidance, we extend
context-free grammar by associating context variables
with each grammar symbol and attaching several types of
procedural decorations to grammar rules. This extension
enables the system to capture the semantic constraints
and its user-guiding actions in a domain-independent
grammar. As the grammar is interpreted, the
database-specific information is fed from the system's
lexicon and knowledge base. The current implementation
of Kaleidoscope runs on a XEROX-1186 LISP machine with
a SUN server configured with a relational DBMS.
\par
The approach of Kaleidoscope is based on the normative
system assumption. The system presents its capability

abstract = "The video presentation ``The G + /GraphLog Visual
Query System'' gives an overview of the capabilities of
the ongoing implementation of the G + Visual Query
System for visualizing both data and queries as graphs.
The system provides an environment for expressing
queries in {\em GraphLog\/} [Con89, CM89, CM90], as
well as for browsing, displaying and editing graphs.
The visual query system also supports displaying the
answers in several different ways. \par
Graphs are a very natural representation for data in
many application domains, for example, transportation
networks, project scheduling, parts hierarchies, family
trees, concept hierarchies, and Hypertext. From a
broader perspective, many databases can be naturally
viewed as graphs. In particular, any relational
database in which we can identify one or more sets of
objects of interest and relationships between them can
be represented by mapping these objects into nodes and
relationships into edges. In the case of semantic and
object-oriented databases, there is a natural mapping
of objects to nodes and attributes to edges.
\par
GraphLog is a visual query language, based on a graph
representation of both data and queries, that has
evolved from the earlier language G + [CMW87, CMW89,
MW89]. GraphLog queries ask for patterns that must be
present or absent in the database graph. Each such
pattern, called a {\em query graph}, defines new edges
that are added to the graph whenever the pattern is
found. GraphLog queries are sets of query graphs,
called {\em graphical queries}. If, when looking at a
query graph in a graphical query, we do not find an
edge label in the database, then there must exist
another query graph in the graphical query defining
that edge. The language also supports computing
aggregate functions and summarizing along paths.
\par
The G + Visual Query System is currently implemented in
Smalltalk-80, and runs on Sun 3, Sun 4 and Macintosh II
workstations. A Graph Editor is available for editing
query graphs and displaying database graphs. It
supports graph ``cutting and pasting'', as well as text
editing of node and edge labels, node and edge
repositioning and re-shaping, storage and retrieval of
graphs as text files, etc. Automatic graph layout is
also provided. For editing collections of graphs (such
as graphical queries) a Graph Browser is available.
\par
The first answer mode supported by the G + Visual Query
System is to return as the result of a GraphLog query a
graph with the new edges defined by the graphical query
added to the database graph. \par
An alternative way of visualizing answers is by
high-lighting on the database graph, one at a time, the
paths (or just the nodes) described by the query. This
mode is particularly useful to locate interesting
starting points for browsing. \par
Rather than viewing the answers superimposed on the
database graph, the user may choose to view them in a
Graph Browser. The Graph Browser contains the set of
subgraphs of the database graph that were found to
satisfy the query. \par
Finally, the user may select to collect all the
subgraphs of the database graph that satisfy the query
together into one new graph. This graph (as well as any
other result graph from any of the above mentioned
answer modes) in turn may be queried, providing a
mechanism for iterative filtering of irrelevant
information until a manageable subgraph is obtained.",

abstract = "OdeView is the graphical front end for Ode, an
object-oriented database system and environment. It is
intended for users who do not want to write programs in
Ode's database programming language O++ to interact
with Ode but instead want to use a friendlier interface
to Ode. OdeView is based on the graphical direct
manipulation paradigm that involves selection of items
from pop-up menus and icons that can be clicked on and
dragged. OdeView provides facilities for examining the
database schema examining class definitions, browsing
objects, following chains of references, displaying
selected portions of objects or selecting a subset of
the ways in which an object can be displayed
(projection), and retrieving specific objects
(selection). \par
Upon entering OdeView, the user is presented with a
scrollable ``database'' window containing the names and
iconified images of the current Ode databases. The user
can select a database to interact with by using the
mouse to click on the appropriate icon. OdeView then
opens a ``class relationship'' window which displays
the hierarchy relationship between the object classes
database. The hierarchy relationship between classes is
a set of dags. \par
The user can zoom in and zoom out to examine this dag
at various levels of detail. The user can also examine
a class in detail by clicking at the node labeled with
the class of interest. Clicking results in the opening
of a ``class information'' window that has three
scrollable subwindows, one showing its superclasses,
the second its subclasses, and the third showing the
meta data associated with this class. \par
The class information window also has a button,
clicking which shows the class definition. The user may
continue schema browsing by selecting another node in
the schema graph, or may click on one of the
superclasses or subclasses. Associated with each class
in Ode a the set of persistent objects of that class,
called cluster. The class definition window has an
``objects'' button that allows users to browse through
the objects in the cluster. Clicking this button opens
the ``object set'' window which consists of two parts
the control and object panels. The control panel
consists of buttons reset, next, and previous to
sequence through the objects. The object panel has
buttons to view the object, projection (to view parts
of the object), and to specify the selection criteria.
\par
An Ode object can be displayed in one or more formats
depending upon the semantics of the display function
associated with the corresponding class. The object set
window supplies one button each for each of the object
display formats. For example, an employee object can be
displayed textually or in pictorial form, the object
panel for employee will provides appropriate buttons to
see these displays. An object may contain embedded
references to other objects. The object panel of an
object set window provides buttons for viewing these
referenced objects. The basic browsing paradigm
encouraged by OdeView is to start from an object and
then explore the related objects in the database by
following the embedded chains of references. To speed
up such repetitive navigations, OdeView supports {\em
synchronized browsing}. Once the user has displayed a
network of objects and the user applies a sequencing
operation to any object in this network, the sequencing
operation is automatically propagated over the network.
\par
OdeView is implemented using X-Windows and HP-Widgets
on a SUN workstation running the UNIX system. The video
takes the viewers on a tour of OdeView, showing how a
user interacts with OdeView to examine the database
schema and the objects in the database.",

abstract = "Current query languages, such as SQL, assume that the
user is familiar with the database schema including the
attribute names, types, and relation associations. When
a user has imperfect knowledge of this information (or
when he balks at the data-processing orientation of the
required statements), he normally asks an experienced
analyst to perform his and hoc query. The Intelligent
Navigational Assistant (INA) was developed for the U S
Army as a prototype query tool that permits the users
to specify requests using only domain terms familiar to
them. Once a request is made, it is converted into SQL
for processing 1,2 \par
To facilitate query formulation, the INA supports an
interface that allows the user to identify attributes
without relation associations (i.e., treats the data
model as a universal relation). Because an attribute
may appear in many relations, one of the principal
tasks of the INA is the determination of the
appropriate relation bindings. To aid in the selection
of terms, the INA maintains a user vocabulary and
provides facilities for browsing the vocabulary and
examining term definitions. Thus, the INA has two
primary functions it provides an easy-to-use interface
for query definition, and it converts a request into
SQL. \par
The INA prototype has been implemented as a PC-resident
knowledge-based system linked to a host-based DBMS. Its
knowledge base is the logical schema of the target
database, and the query transformation relies on the
dependencies implicit in that schema. Supporting the
knowledge-processing functions are the query definition
interface, various tools to manage the target data
model description, and facilities for communicating
with other computers. The system was developed using
TEDIUM@@@@, 3 and the user interface and query
resolution mechanism are extensions of earlier work
with Tequila 4 (which accessed the semantically-richer
TEDIUM@@@@ data model) \par
Work on the INA began in 1987 and was terminated in
1988. The system was demonstrated as a prototype with
an Army-supplied logical model consisting of
approximately 40 relations and 200 attributes. After
query definition, reformation, and user acceptance, the
SQL queries were submitted to the mainframe for
processing. In those tests, the INA often produced
better queries than those manually coded by analysts.
The INA currently is undergoing a beta test with a much
larger database schema. Its algorithms are described in
reference 5, and reference 3 contains details regarding
its implementation and semantic data model. Current
research includes the development of improved query
resolution algorithms based on an enriched semantic
data model",

the graphical Direct Manipulation (DM) interaction
paradigm, which relies on a bit-mapped, multi-window
screen and a mouse to implement clickable icons as the
main representation of information. This style of
interaction enables end users to learn quickly and
remember easily how the system works. Pasta-3 gives
complete access to the D/KBMS, since its users can
carry out all manipulation tasks through it schema
definition, schema and data browsing, query
formulation, and updating. These tasks can be freely
mixed, combined, and switched Pasta-3 interfaces to the
KB2 knowledge base system, implemented in Prolog and
built over the EDUCE system which provides a tight
coupling to a relational DBMS KB2 uses the
Entity-Relationship data model, extended with
inheritance and deduction rules. KB2 was developed by
the KB Group at ECRC. \par
Pasta-3 uses Direct Manipulation in the strong sense of
the term DM of the actual graphical representations of
the application data and not just DM of commands
operating on that data. Besides the high degree of
integration in the overall design, major innovations
with respect to earlier work include enhanced schema
browsing with active functionalities to facilitate
correct user understanding of the KB structure,
``synchronized'' data browsing that exploits the
underlying semantic data model to make browsing more
powerful, and a graphical query language providing full
expressive power (including certain recursive queries,
nested subqueries, quantification). \par
Pasta-3 provides interactive design support that has
significant ergonomic advantages over the usual
approach to this problem. In Pasta-3 different types of
schema information -- the basic E-R diagram, and
inheritance lattices, the properties of each E-R item
-- are displayed in separate windows, which makes
accurate reading of such information much less
difficult than in the usual case where all these layers
are thrown together in a single graph, which makes
misinterpretation hard to avoid. \par
For schema and data browsing, Pasta-3 offers facilities
that build more semantics into the browsing processes.
One type of schema browsing tool is a subgraph
computation capability which automatically finds and
displays the paths that connect arbitrary E-R items.
This helps end users to correctly perceive the schema
structure. Data browsing includes ``synchronised''
browsing, a functionality which shows simultaneously
data from several Entities all sharing the same
Relationship and indicates which values from each
Entity are associated with given values from the
others. \par
Pasta-3's DM query language replaces the textual
language without loss of expressive power it offers a
new, sophisticated DM editing capability for the same
formal constructs. Query specification takes place in a
window containing icons representing the components of
the query expression which can be created, destroyed,
and modified all by clicking and dragging through the
mouse. Queries can be recursive and involve logical
variables, quantification, and subqueries. Expressions
mixing both KB2 statements and Prolog predicates can
also be formulated. \par
The video shows Pasta-3 actually being used, in real
time and under normal conditions. It includes sequences
demonstrating all three major functionalities schema
design browsing, and querying. It gives an example of
the subgraph computation capability and builds a simple
query from scratch, going through all the steps needed
to do so. The demonstration also includes work with
other types of Pasta-3 windows (e.g., property sheets).
\par
The video has an English-language sound track
explaining everything that is seen on the screen. The
camera zooms in and out in order to show full screen
overviews (giving a good idea of the general ``feel''
of the interface) and close-ups of work with mouse and
icons (allowing the viewer to see as much detail in the
video as an actual user would).",

abstract = "Iris is an object-oriented database management system
being developed at Hewlett--Packard Laboratories [1],
[3]. This videotape provides an overview of the Iris
data model and a summary of our experiences in
converting a computer-integrated manufacturing
application to Iris. An abstract of the videotape
follows. \par
Iris is intended to meet the needs of new and emerging
database applications such as office and engineering
information systems, knowledge-based systems,
manufacturing applications, and hardware and software
design. These applications require a rich set of
capabilities that are not supported by the current
generation (i.e., relational) DBMSs. \par
The Iris data model is an object and function model. It
provides three basic constructs {\em objects, types\/}
and {\em functions}. As with other object systems, Iris
objects have a unique identifier and can only be
accessed and manipulated through functions. Objects are
classified by type. Objects that belong to the same
type share common functions. Types are organized into a
hierarchy with inherited functions. In Iris, functions
are used to model properties of objects, relationships
among objects and operations on objects. Thus, the
behavior of an Iris object is completely specified
through its participation in functions. \par
Iris provides good separation among its three basic
notions. This simplifies the data model making it
easier to learn and easier to implement since there are
fewer constructs than other object models. In addition,
it facilitates Iris support for the following desirable
features. Schema evolution: new types and functions may
be added at any time. Object evolution: Iris objects
may have multiple types and may acquire and lose types
dynamically. Object participation in functions may be
required or optional (e g, everyone has birthdate but
not everyone has a phone number). Data independence:
the implementation of a function is defined separately
from its interface. Thus, the implementation of a
function may change without affecting applications that
use it. Functional extensibility: an Iris function may
be implemented as a stored table, computed as an Iris
expression, or computed as a subroutine in a
general-purpose programming language. Thus, any
computation can be expressed as an Iris function Schema
and data uniformity: the metadata is modeled and
manipulated using the primitives of the data model.
Also, system functions (create type, delete object,
etc) are invoked in the same manner as user functions.
Thus, users need learn only one interface. Set
processing: Iris supports set-at-a-time processing for
efficient retrieval and update of collections of
objects. \par
To evaluate the usefulness of the Iris prototype, a
project was undertaken to convert a large relational
application to Iris [2]. The relational system
contained nearly 200 relations and 2500 attributes.
When transcribed to Iris, the schema size was reduced
by over a third. There are two reasons for this large
reduction. First, in the relational schema, many
attributes were simply foreign keys required for joins.
In the Iris schema, function inheritance through the
type hierarchy eliminates the need for many of these
foreign keys. A second reason for the schema reduction
was that compound keys were replaced by object
references. This permitted several attributes in a
relation to be replaced by a single identifier \par
It was noted that application programs were easier to
read and develop using the Iris schema. The Iris OSQL
(Object SQL) language was a fairly natural interface
for users familiar with SQL. The use of function
composition and function inheritance and a large number
of joins that, in the relational system, must be
expressed by comparing keys. The function-orientation
of Iris encouraged {\em code sharing\/} in that
deriving and sharing new functions was simplified.

for using object-oriented database management systems,

viable to reduce the response time of decision support

motivate as the dual of the traditional DBMS problem.
We address this novel problem in the context of
Select-Project-Join queries by extending the execution
space, cost model and search algorithm that are widely
used in commercial DBMSs. We incorporate the sources
and deterrents of parallelism in the traditional
execution space. We show that a cost model can predict
response time while accounting for the new aspects due
to parallelism. We observe that the response time
optimization metric violates a fundamental assumption
in the dynamic programming algorithm that is the
linchpin in the optimizers of most commercial DBMSs. We
extend dynamic programming and show how optimization
metrics which correctly predict response time may be
designed.",

achieves maximum resource utilizations by running an

carefully calculated degrees of parallelism and
maintains the maximum resource utilizations by
dynamically adjusting the degrees of parallelism of
running tasks whenever necessary. Real performance
figures are shown to confirm the effectiveness of our

abstract = "During the past decade, parallel database systems have
gained increased popularity due to their high
performance, scalability and availability
characteristics. With the predicted future database
sizes and the complexity of queries, the scalability of
these systems to hundreds and thousands of processors
is essential for satisfying the projected demand.
Several studies have repeatedly demonstrated that both
the performance and scalability of a parallel database
system is contingent on the physical layout of data
across the processors of the system. If the data is not
declustered properly, the execution of an operator
might waste resources, reducing the overall processing
capability of the system. \par
With earlier, single attribute declustering strategies,
such as those found in Tandem, Teradata, Gamma, and
Bubba parallel database systems, a selection query
including a range predicate on any attribute other than
the partitioning attribute must be sent to all
processors containing tuples of the relation. By
directing a query with minimal resource requirements to
processors that contain no relevant tuples, the system
wastes CPU cycles, communication bandwidth, and I/O
bandwidth, reducing its overall processing capability.
As a solution, several multi-attribute declustering
strategies have been proposed. However, the performance
of these declustering techniques have not previously
been compared to one another nor with a single
attribute partitioning strategy. This paper, compares
the performance of Multi-Attribute GrId deClustering
(MAGIC) strategy and Bubba's Extended Range
Declustering (BERD) strategy with one another and with
the range partitioning strategy. Our results indicate
that MAGIC outperforms both range and BERD in all
experiments conducted in this study.",

the QP's strategy, i.e., for producing new strategies
with lower expected costs. Each algorithm first
monitors the Qp's operations over a set of queries,
observing how often each path of rules leads to a
sufficient set of successful retrievals, and then uses
these statistics to suggest a new strategy. PIB
hill-climbs to strategies that are, with high
probability, successively better; and PAO produces a
new strategy that probably is approximately optimal. We

complexities, and use methods from mathematical

the range of motion of the disk arm is the interval

assumed to be points uniformly distributed on the
interval [0,1] and therefore the expected seek distance

involve fetching very large objects which must be

reflect disk arm movement in such cases as both the
assumption of uniformity and the range of motion of the
disk arm may depend on the size of the objects. We
propose a more accurate model that takes into
consideration the distribution of the sizes of the
objects fetched as well as the disk arm scheduling
policy. We provide closed form expressions for the

variant of the normal form computations that we use;
the normal form computations used for valid semantics
seem more natural than those used for well-founded

motivated from two main observations. First, locking
protocols are widely accepted and used in most database
systems. Second, in real-time databases it has been
shown that the blocking behavior of transactions in
locking protocols results in performance degradation.
We use a new relationship between locks called ordered
sharing to eliminate blocking that arises in the
traditional locking protocols. Ordered sharing
eliminates blocking of read and write operations but
may result in delayed commitment. Since in real-time
databases, timeliness and not response time is the
crucial factor, or protocols exploit this delay to
allow transactions to execute within the slacks of
delayed transactions. We compare the performance of the
proposed protocols with the two phase locking protocol
for real-time databases. Our experiments indicate that
the propose protocols significantly reduce the
percentage of missed deadlines in the system for a
variety of workloads.",

express these algorithms within the declarative
framework of logic-based languages. In this paper, we
extend the framework of Datalog-like languages to
provide simple and declarative formulations of such
problems, with computational complexities comparable to
those of procedural formulations. This is achieved
through the use of constructs, such as least and
choice, that have semantics reducible to that of
negative programs under stable model semantics.
Therefore, we show that the formulation of greedy
algorithms using these constructs lead to a syntactic
class of programs, called stage-stratified programs,
that are easily recognized at compile time. The
fixpoint-based implementation of these recursive
programs is very efficient and, combined with suitable
storage structures, yields asymptotic complexities
comparable to those obtained using procedural

retaining a lock (shared, exclusive, etc.) on each page

In addition to tracking the validity of the buffered

such as deferred writes to support no-force policy on
commit, (node) location identification of valid
granules to support remote memory accesses, and
shared/exclusive lock retention to reduce the number of
global lock requests for concurrency control. However,
these can have serious implications not only on the
performance but also on the recovery complexity. In
this paper, five different integrated coherency
policies are considered. We classify these policies
into three different categories according to their
recovery requirements. A performance study based on
analytic models is provided to understand the
trade-offs on both maximum throughputs and response

read-only transactions that do not mind reading a
possibly slightly old, but still consistent, version of
the data base to execute without acquiring locks. This
approach avoids the undesirable interferences between
such queries and the typically shorter update
transactions that cause unnecessary and costly delays.
Indexed access by such queries is also supported,
unlike by the earlier methods. Old versions of records
are maintained only in a {\em transient\/} fashion. Our
methods are characterized by their flexibility (number
of versions maintained and the timing of version
switches, supporting partial rollbacks, and different
recovery and buffering methods) and their efficiency
(logging, garbage collection, version selection, and
incremental, record-level versioning). Distributed data
base environments are also supported, including commit
protocols with the read-only optimization. We also
describe efficient methods for garbage collecting
unneeded older versions.",

abstract = "Common aggregation predicates have natural definitions
in logic, either as first order sentences ({\em min,
max,\/} etc.), or with elementary induction over a data
structure that represents the relation ({\em sum,
count,\/} etc.). The well-founded semantics for logic
programs provides an interpretation of such
definitions. The interpretation of first-order
aggregates seems to be quite natural and intuitively
satisfying, even in the presence of recursion through
aggregation. Care is needed to get useful results on
inductive aggregates, however. A basic building block
is the ``subset'' predicate, which states that a data
structure represents a subset of an IDB predicate, and
which is definable in the well-founded semantics. The
analogous ``superset'' is also definable, and their
combination yields a ``generic'' form of {\em findall}.
Surprisingly, {\em findall\/} must be used negatively
to obtain useful approximations when the exact relation
is not yet known. \par
Extensions to the semantics, restrictions on the input,
and other supplementary requirements proposed in
earlier studies appear to be unnecessary for the
purpose of {\em attaching a meaning\/} to a program
that involves recursion through aggregation. For
example, any reasonable definition of ``shortest
paths'' tolerates negative weight edges, correctly
computes shortest paths that exist, and leave tuples
undefined where negative-weight cycles cause the
shortest path not to exist. Other examples exhibit
similarly robust behavior, when defined carefully.
Connections with the generic model of computation are
discussed briefly.",

object-oriented databases (OODB) makes an instance of a
subclass also an instance of its superclass. As a
result, the access scope of a query against a class in
general includes the access scope of all its
subclasses, unless specified otherwise. To support the
superclass-subclass relationship efficiently, the index
must achieve two objectives. First, the index must
support efficient retrieval of instances from a single
class. Second, it must also support efficient retrieval
of instances from classes in a hierarchy of classes. In
this paper, we propose a new index called the H-tree
that supports efficient retrieval of instances of a
single class as well as retrieval of instances of a
class and its subclasses. The unique feature of H-trees
is that they capture the superclass-subclass
relationships. A performance analysis is conducted and
both experimental and analytical results indicate that
the H-tree is an efficient indexing structure for
OODB.",

distributed commit protocols, the protocols may block
in some partitions to avoid inconsistent termination of
the transaction, thus making data items in these
partitions unavailable for accesses. We present a
protocol that incorporates two new ideas with the goal
of improving data availability. First, a new two-level
voting scheme is proposed for deciding in which
partitions to terminate the transaction. In this
scheme, a choice is made based on the number of data
items available in the partition rather than on the
number of individual nodes. Indeed, in replicated
systems, a criterion based on the number of nodes may
be misleading. Second, we propose a way to reduce
blocking caused by accumulating network fragmentation.
The idea employs the {\em views\/} mechanism previously
used in replica management.",
