A Problem-Oriented Analysis of Database Models

Abstract

Which is the most convenient database model considering specific applications? The goal of this paper is to try to answer this question by the use of a chemical example. Examples of requests describe the problems of insertion, deletion, and updating; these requests are analyzed for the hierarchical model and are expressed in a relational language defined by the authors and in Socrate for the network model.
