Tabular Representations in Relational Documents
In this chapter the use of relations, represented as tables, for documenting the requirements and behaviour of software is motivated and explained. A formal model of tabular expressions, defining the meaning of a large class of tabular forms, is presented. Finally, we discuss the transformation of tabular expressions from one form to another, and illustrate some useful transformations.
