Since the early eighties, an active temporal database research community has sought new insight into the management of time-referenced, or temporal, data and has developed concepts, tools and techniques that better support the management of such data. Much of this activity has been motivated by the observations that most databases contain substantial amounts of temporal data and that conventional database technology offers precious little support for temporal data management. Temporal data stored in a temporal database is different from the data stored in non-temporal database in that a time period attached to the data expresses when it was valid or stored in the database. In this paper, the authors are going to design an algorithm for simulating temporal database using exponential distribution.
