    OSM-Logic: A Fact-Oriented, Time-Dependent Formalization of Object-Oriented Systems Modeling

    The lack of fact-oriented, time-dependent formalizations of conceptual models leads to difficulties in inspecting and reasoning about system properties and predicting future behavior from past behavior. The authors can better serve these needs by formalized conceptualizations that more closely match the demands of such applications. They therefore set forth in...

    Morph: A (Shape) Polymorphic XML Query Language

    By imposing a single hierarchy on data, XML makes queries brittle in the sense that a query might fail to produce the desired result if it is executed on the same data organized in a different hierarchy, or if the hierarchy evolves during the lifetime of an application. This paper...
