About this book


"Temporal Information Processing Technology and Its Applications" systematically studies temporal information processing technology and its applications. The book covers following subjects: 1) time model, calculus and logic; 2) temporal data models, semantics of temporal variable ‘now’ temporal database concepts; 3) temporal query language, a typical temporal database management system: TempDB; 4) temporal extension on XML, workflow and knowledge base; and, 5) implementation patterns of temporal applications, a typical example of temporal application. The book is intended for researchers, practitioners and graduate students of databases, data/knowledge management and temporal information processing. Dr. Yong Tang is a professor at the Computer School, South China Normal University, China.
