A taxonomy and current issues in multidatabase systems
A taxonomy of global information-sharing systems is presented, and the way in which multidatabase systems fit into the spectrum of solutions is discussed. The taxonomy is used as a basis for defining
Automated resolution of semantic heterogeneity in multidatabases
The Summary Schemas Model (SSM) is proposed as an extension to multidatabase systems to aid in semantic identification and a simulation of the SSM is presented to compare imprecise-query processing with corresponding query-processing costs in a standard multid atabase system.
Multidatabase Systems: An Advance Solution for Global Information Sharing
A tutorial comprising reprinted papers that explore issues associated with multidatabases and present the current status of work in the field. It covers a wide range of theoretical, conceptual, and
Modular Scheme for Designing Special PurposeAssociative Memories and Beyond
This paper briefly overviews design of several fully parallel associative memories proposed in the literature, concentrating on the design of fully-parallel θ-search CAMs.
Object-oriented database management systems: evolution and performance issues
It is argued that clustering and buffering schemes tailored to typical complex object operations offer the best near-term means of improving the performance of databases and that research in clusteringand buffering should address recent advances in disk technology: optical and parallel disks.
Automated Knowledge Acquisition in a Neural Network–Based Decision Support System for Incomplete Database Systems
: A neural network–based decision support system has been designed and simulated to be used as a filter to improve the system performance of large incomplete databases enhanced with maybe algebra. To
Application for parallel disks for efficient handling of object-oriented databases
This paper is an attempt to investigate the feasibility of using parallel disks for object-oriented databases and analyzes the conceptual changes needed to map the clustering and buffering schemes proposed on the new underlying architecture utilizing parallel I/O disks.
