Computation-Tuple Sequences and Object Histories: Extended Abstract
Recently, much attention has been focussed on database aspects of office automation and their associated research problems [A,EN,PFK,SIGMOD,SSLKG]. One major component in this area is a facility to manage historical data for many “objects”, namely, an object history (management) system. Examples of such systems are those for personal checking account, salary reviews and schedules. However, there has been little widely accepted mathematical formalism which captures major aspects of the historical data for the objects (here called object histories) and permits the identification and analysis of relevant issues. The purpose of the present paper is to introduce a mathematical model allowing such an investigation1.
