Temporal Logical Models
Historical data models
Temporal logical models refer to the logical structure of data that captures the temporal behavior and operations over such structures. The term “logical” is used to distinguish such temporal structures from the physical storage organization and implementation. For example, the behavior of temporal events and operations over them can be described logically in a way that is independent of the physical structure (e.g., linked lists) or indexing of the events. Temporal logical models include concepts of data values that are collected or are changed over time, such as continuous physical phenomena, a series of discrete events, and interval data over time. The challenge is one of having a single comprehensive model that captures this diversity of behavior.
In the 1980s, several researchers focused on dealing with temporal data, both on the modeling concepts and on physical organization and indexing of temporal data. This led...
