Combining Provenance Management and Schema Evolution

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 11017)


The combination of provenance management and schema evolution using the CHASE algorithm is the focus of our research in the area of research data management. The aim is to combine the construction of a CHASE inverse mapping to calculate the minimal part of the original database — the minimal sub-database — with a CHASE-based schema mapping for schema evolution.
