PROPOSED DATABASE RESEARCH PAPER.

- Methods of implementing temp*data representation.

        This involves finding out how one can represent timed data. For
        example some of the current methods used eg, time-stamping. Which is
        the most efficient representation. What advantages does each
        differing method of representation have over each other, and
        conventional databases. How do the differing database models effect,
        the modelling/design of a temp*database?

        An example paper I have found so far is "Modelling and Managing Time
        in Database Systems". (1992) by D.H.O Ling & D.A Bell. The Computer
        Journal Vol.35, No.4.

        This paper describes a means of describing temp*data, how to
        extend SQL to handle temp*queries, and how it could work over a
        multiple database model. (TDMS Temp*Database Management System).

Could anyone suggest how I might find some more current reference material
on this subject. Are there any online documents relevant to it? Any help
at all would be most appreciated.

Once again, all help appreciated. I'm sorry to say that my Library does
not have many of the sources, so any online text or postscript papers would
be _extremely_ helpful.
