Symbolic representation of user-defined time granularities

  title={Symbolic representation of user-defined time granularities},
  author={Claudio Bettini and Roberto De Sibi},
  journal={Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence},
In the recent literature on time representation, an effort has been made to characterize the notion of time granularity and the relationships between granularities. The main goals are having a common framework for their specification, and allowing the interoperability of systems adopting different time granularities. This paper considers the mathematical characterization of finite and periodic time granularities, and investigates the requirements for a user-friendly symbolic formalism that… CONTINUE READING
