Object-oriented approach to managing statistical and scientific databases

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 420)

Abstract

The surging interest in object-oriented programming has given rise to a flurry of recent research and development efforts in object-oriented databases. In this paper we discuss capabilities and limitations of object-oriented database systems that support a set of core object-oriented modeling concepts, and illustrate those aspects of core object-oriented database systems that are particularly appropriate for managing large statistical and scientific databases.
