Toward a uniform logical representation of different kinds of integrity constraints [chapter]

Robert Demolombe, Andrew J. I. Jones, Jose Carmo
1997 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To have a uniform representation of the dierent kinds of constraints we have adopted a logical framework.  ...  We have outlined a logical framework for the representation of some species of database integrity constraints. In each case, the constraints were represented as obligation sentences.  ...

A Software Engineering Paradigm as a basis for Enterprise Integration in (Multi-) Client/Server Environments [chapter]

D. Solte
1995 Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering  
The described software engineering paradigm supports a model-oriented development of distributed data, services and processes in a uniform way towards a neutralizing execution environment.  ...  As a consequence, new kinds of architectures are needed. This paper outlines an approach, developed at FA W for the described scenario.  ...  The representation framework defined by the metameta-model OML allows the uniform knowledge representation of application concepts under different perspectives ( Figure 6 ).  ...

Describing Images using a Multilayer Framework based on Qualitative Spatial Models

Tao Wang, Hui Shi
2015 The Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication  
Finally, the knowledge layer of the framework enables us to describe the image in a natural way by integrating the domain-specified semantic constraints and the spatial constraints.  ...  The layout features of segmented images are defined by qualitative spatial models which we introduce, and represented as a set of qualitative spatial constraints.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Tao Wang is funded by China Scholarship Council, and we gratefully acknowledge the support of DFG SFB/TR8 I5 and NSFC 61272336.  ...

Towards multilingual programming environments

Tijs van der Storm, Jurgen J. Vinju
2015 Science of Computer Programming  
Software projects consist of different kinds of artifacts: build files, configuration files, markup files, source code in different software languages, and so on.  ...  In this short paper we sketch a vision of a system that integrates IDE support across language boundaries.  ...  Introduction Most software projects consist of many kinds of different artifacts, in different languages.  ...

Ontologies and semantics for seamless connectivity

Michael Uschold, Michael Gruninger
2004 SIGMOD record  
A variety of research systems have been developed addressing some of the semantic issues.  ...  The goal of having networks of seamlessly connected people, software agents and IT systems remains elusive. Early integration efforts focused on connectivity at the physical and syntactic layers.  ...  Phil Bernstein, AnHai Doan, and several others helped clarify the differences between DB schema and ontologies.  ...

UL-PML: constraint-enabled distributed product data model

Y. Wang, B. O. Nnaji *
2004 International Journal of Production Research  
Design constraints cannot be represented and transferred among different groups, and design information cannot be integrated efficiently within a distributed environment.  ...  Segments of design information can be linked and integrated into a set of complete product data. Thus, lean information exchange can be realized.  ...  A unified constraint representation form is needed to support different kinds of internal representations.  ...

More on the Interactive Indexing Semantic Theory

significant intermediate processing of a broadly normative epistemic kind prior to the formation of sorting dispositions.  ...  The theory is also related to Fodor's representational theory of mind (RTM), with some surprisingly close parallels being found in spite of the purely dispositional basis of the II theory.  ...  Such an abstract proposition also stands in integral logical relations to other propositions.  ...

Representation of Ontologies for Information Integration [chapter]

Chantal Reynaud, Brigitte Safar
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An information integration system provides a uniform query interface to a collection of autonomous and distributed sources, connected to each other thanks to a global mediated schema, called domain ontology  ...  We focus on the choices for representing classes, properties and constraints using the characteristics of the formalism.  ...  Goasdoue who implemented the query engine and has allowed us the optimization of the ontology.  ...

UniForM Perspectives for Formal Methods [chapter]

Bernd Krieg-Brückner
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Trends for Formal Methods are reviewed and illustrated by several industrial applications: logical foundations of combination, verification, transformation, testing, and tool support.  ...  The UniForM Workbench is the background for highlighting experiences made over the past 20 years.  ...  Transformation rules preserve correctness; they can themselves be proved correct in UniForM against the semantics of the object language, e.g. at the level of the logic representation in HOL, cf.  ...

way: How to identify and explain a inconsistency that spreads over multiple knowledge bases with different logical formalisms (e.g., logic programs and ontologies)?  ...  Such information exchange, however, often comes with unforseen side-effects leading to violation of constraints, making the system inconsistent, and thus unusable.  ...  Acknowledgements I am very grateful to my advisor Thomas Eiter, the principal investigator of our research project Michael Fink, and my colleague Peter Schüller who provided guidance, and helped with many  ...

Types of constraints on development: An interactivist approach

Robert L Campbell, Mark H Bickhard
1992 Developmental Review  
Any developmental theory needs to acknowledge all four types of constraint; however, some current theories conflate different types of constraint, or rely on a single constraint type to explicate development  ...  The interactivist approach to development generates a framework of types of constraints on what can be constructed.  ...  Portions were previously presented at the biennial meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development, Baltimore, April 23, 1987, and the annual meeting of the Jean Piaget Society, Philadelphia,  ...
