Conceptual design of fuzzy object-oriented databases

1998-04-23
An important research trend in databases is to handle different types of uncertainty at conceptual level. The trend of incorporating complex objects in databases presents opportunities for representing imprecision and uncertainty that were difficult to integrate cohesively in simple database models. In this study we introduce a conceptual data model by extending ExIFO to handle both complex and uncertain, mainly fuzzy, objects and classes.

Modeling, inference and optimization of regulatory networks based on time series data
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; DEFTERLİ, ÖZLEM; ALPARSLAN GÖK, Sırma Zeynep; Kropat, Erik (2011-05-16)
In this survey paper, we present advances achieved during the last years in the development and use of OR, in particular, optimization methods in the new gene-environment and eco-finance networks, based on usually finite data series, with an emphasis on uncertainty in them and in the interactions of the model items. Indeed, our networks represent models in the form of time-continuous and time-discrete dynamics, whose unknown parameters we estimate under constraints on complexity and regularization by variou...
Assessment of software process and metrics to support quantitative understanding
TARHAN, AYÇA; Demirörs, Onur (2007-11-07)
The use of process metrics and data for quantitative understanding is not very straightforward. If we have an identification of process components and follow a measurement process, we are likely to use process metrics and data effectively. But if we don't have these practices, we can hardly trust oil process metrics and data for quantitative understanding. In this paper, we summarize eight case studies that we performed in different industrial contexts. The case studies rely on an assessment approach that i...
The strong partial transitive-closure problem: Algorithms and performance evaluation
Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (1996-08-01)
The development of efficient algorithms to process the different forms of transitive-closure (To) queries within the context of large database systems has recently attracted a large volume of research efforts. In this paper, we present two new algorithms suitable for processing one of these forms, the so called strong partially instantiated transitive closure, in which one of the query's arguments is instantiated to a set of constants and the processing of which yields a set of tuples that draw their values...
Handling complex and uncertain information in the ExIFO and NF2 data models
Yazıcı, Adnan; Petry, FE (1999-12-01)
Trends in databases leading to complex objects present opportunities for representing imprecision and uncertainty that were difficult to integrate cohesively in simpler database models. In fact, one can begin at the conceptual level with a model that allows uncertainty assumptions and then transform those assumptions into a logical model having the necessary semantic foundations upon which to base a meaningful query language. Here we provide such a constructive approach beginning with the ExIFO model for ex...
Efficient computation of strong partial transitive-closures
Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (null; 1993-01-01)
The development of efficient algorithms to process the different forms of the transitive-closure (TC) queries within the context of large database systems has recently attracted a large volume of research efforts. In this paper, we present a new algorithm suitable for processing one of these forms, the so called strong partially-instantiated, in which one of the query's argument is instantiated to a set of constants and the processing of which yields a set of tuples that draw their values form both of the q...
