  • Schmidt, Joachim W. "Some high level language constructs for data of type relation" pp247-261 view details Abstract: For the extension of high level languages by data types of mode relation, three language constructs are proposed and discussed: a repetition statement controlled by relations, predicates as a generalization of Boolean expressions, and a constructor for relations using predicates. The language constructs are developed step by step starting with a set of elementary operations on relations. They are designed to fit into PASCAL without introducing too many additional concepts.

Data abstraction tools: Design, specification and application Proceedings of the 1980 workshop on Data abstraction, databases and conceptual modeling International Conference on Management of Data Pingree Park, Colorado, United States Pages: 186 - 188 1981 view details Abstract: Current research in data modeling is motivated by the following dilemma: - At the application level - being confronted with ?slices of reality? - details are perceived that, in general, cannot be represented. - At the representation level - being confronted with ?levels of machines? - details are represented that, in general, cannot be perceived. Abstraction methods cope with that problem by suppressing unnecessary details and by formalizing and structuring the relevant information. External link: Online copy
