Non-Standard Inferences in Description Logics

Description logics (DLs) are used to symbolize dependent wisdom. Inference prone trying out consistency of data bases and computing subconcept/superconcept hierarchies are the most characteristic of DL structures. in depth study over the last fifteen years has ended in hugely optimized platforms that permit to cause approximately wisdom bases successfully.

MDDL and the Quest for a Market Data Standard: Explanation, Rationale, and Implementation (The Elsevier and Mondo Visione World Capital Markets)

The purpose of this e-book is to supply an goal seller self reliant evaluate of the industry facts Definition Language (MDDL), the eXtensible Mark-up Language (XML) common for marketplace info. Assuming little past wisdom of the traditional, or of platforms networking, the ebook identifies the demanding situations and importance of the traditional, examines the company and industry drivers and provides selection makers with a transparent, concise and jargon loose learn.

Example text

But are the two storage structures equivalent from the perspective of FD preservation? Consider the same decompositional scenario from a functional dependency perspective. We have previously defined the set of functional dependencies that were present in the original ternary structure. In the decomposed structure, we identify the following functional dependency set: X → Y, X → Z, XY → Z (augmentation), XZ → Y (augmentation) We note that in this decomposition strategy, we lose the functional dependency of YZ → X, and there is no way to recover it through reconstruction based on Armstrong’s Axioms (Armstrong, 1974).

This is done from two perspectives: 1. The theoretical approach to understanding this type of conceptual construct and the subsequent analysis of logical and relational models founded on these theories. 2. The practical aspects of using these constructs in entity-relationship modeling and how the various construct combinations can be mapped to the logical/physical model. The second aspect is partly founded on the first, because the potential decomposition of N-ary constructs and their final representations can be derived from theoretical analysis of the implicit relationships.
