Transactional client-server cache consistency: alternatives and performance
Michael J. Franklin, Michael J. Carey, Miron Livny
Pages: 315-363
DOI: 10.1145/261124.261125
Client-server database systems based on a data shipping model can exploit client memory resources by caching copies of data items across transaction boundaries. Caching reduces the need to obtain data from servers or other sites on the network....

Disjunctive datalog
Thomas Eiter, Georg Gottlob, Heikki Mannila
Pages: 364-418
DOI: 10.1145/261124.261126
We consider disjunctive Datalog, a powerful database query language based on disjunctive logic programming. Briefly, disjunctive Datalog is a variant of Datalog where disjunctions may appear in the rule heads; advanced versions also allow for...

ProbView: a flexible probabilistic database system
Laks V. S. Lakshmanan, Nicola Leone, Robert Ross, V. S. Subrahmanian
Pages: 419-469
DOI: 10.1145/261124.261131
Probability theory is mathematically the best understood paradigm for modeling and manipulating uncertain information. Probabilities of complex events can be computed from those of basic events on which they depend, using any of a number of...
