An indexing technique for similarity-based fuzzy object-oriented data model

Yazıcı, Adnan

Fuzzy object-oriented data model is a fuzzy logic-based extension to object-oriented database model, which permits uncertain data to be explicitly represented. One of the proposed fuzzy object-oriented database models based on similarity relations is the FOOD model. Several kinds of fuzziness are dealt with in the FOOD model, including fuzziness between object/class and class/superclass relations. The traditional index structures are inappropriate for the FOOD model for an efficient access to the objects with crisp or fuzzy values, since they are not efficient for processing both crisp and fuzzy queries. In this study we propose a new index structure (the FOOD Index) dealing with different kinds of fuzziness in FOOD databases and supports multi-dimensional indexing. We describe how the FOOD Index supports various types of flexible queries and evaluate performance results of crisp, range, and fuzzy queries using the FOOD index.


A method for concurrency control in distributed DBMSs: Permission Test Method
Halıcı, Uğur (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 1987-01-09)
In this paper, a method for concurrency control in distributed DBMSs, called Permission Test Method is proposed. The PT method satisfies the basic requirements for concurrency control, that is, it executes the transactions in a serializable order, deadlocks do not appear and indefinite postponment is prevented by the method. In PT method, transactions, which are permitted to run, are not aborted unless a related site failure occurs. Furthermore, the complexity analysis indicates that the algorithm will work...
FOOD Index: A Multidimensional Index Structure for Similarity-Based Fuzzy Object Oriented Database Models
Yazıcı, Adnan; KOYUNCU, Murat (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-08-01)
A fuzzy object-oriented data model is a fuzzy logic-based extension to an object-oriented database model that permits uncertain data to be explicitly represented. The fuzzy object-oriented database (FOOD) model is one of the proposed models in the literature to handle uncertainty in object-oriented databases. Several kinds of fuzziness are dealt with in the FOOD model, including fuzziness at attribute level and between object and class and between class and superclass relations. The traditional index struct...
An Efficient Formula Synthesis Method with Past Signal Temporal Logic
Ergurtuna, Mert; Aydın Göl, Ebru (2019-01-01)
In this work, we propose a novel method to find temporal properties that lead to the unexpected behaviors from labeled dataset. We express these properties in past time Signal Temporal Logic (ptSTL). First, we present a novel approach for finding parameters of a template ptSTL formula, which extends the results on monotonicity based parameter synthesis. The proposed method optimizes a given monotone criteria while bounding an error. Then, we employ the parameter synthesis method in an iterative unguided for...
An access structure for similarity-based fuzzy databases
Yazıcı, Adnan (Elsevier BV, 1999-04-01)
A significant effort has been made in representing imprecise information in database models by using fuzzy set theory. However, the research directed toward access structures to handle fuzzy querying effectively is still at an immature stage. Fuzzy querying involves more complex processing than the ordinary querying does. Additionally, a larger number of tuples are possibly selected by fuzzy conditions in comparison to the crisp ones. It is obvious that the need for fast response time becomes very important...
Verification and transformation of complex and uncertain conceptual schemas
Yazıcı, Adnan (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 1997-12-01)
In database environment it is necessary to represent complex and uncertain information at conceptual level and then transform the conceptual schema into the logical one for ultimate implementation. It is also important to verify the conceptual schema with respect to the constraints imposed on the schema definition. In this paper we primarily focus on the verification and transformation of the conceptual schema For the purpose of verification of the conceptual schema represented by the ExIFO data model (the ...
