A Relational Data Management System

  • V. Kevin Whitney

Abstract

RDMS is a flexible data analysis and manipulation system based on Codd’s relational operations and Child’s set-theoretic operations. This presentation focuses on the application of these techniques to practical problems. Some details of our implementation on a large virtual memory computer will be given.
