Retrieving information from the Internet and large databases is quite difficult and time consuming especially if such information is unstructured. Several algorithms and techniques have been developed in the area of data mining and information retrieval yet retrieving data from large databases continue to be problematic. A typical large Information Retrieval application, such as a Book Library System or Commercial Document Retrieval Service, will change constantly as documents are Added, Changed, and Deleted. This constrains the kinds of data structures…

ABSTRACT

This study investigated the physicochemical properties and heavy metals content around some metallurgical workshops in Minna metropolis Nigeria, using standard analytical methods. The pH, electrical conductivity and texture of the sampled soils and the concentrations of heavy metals which include Cu, Cr, Cd, Pb, Ni, Fe, and Zn were determined. The pH of the soils in all the sampling sites ranged from 6.83±0.14 to 8.93±0.18, which implied that the soil were neutral to slightly alkaline. The…

An object-oriented database management system (OODBMS) is a database system which
supports an object-oriented data model. Just as any traditional database system, it must provide
disk management, data sharing, data integrity, security, and a query language. Further, in support
of an object-oriented data model, it must manage complex objects with object identity, support
objects that encapsulate data and behaviour, structure objects in classes, and organize classes in
a hierarchy. Having attracted reasonable maturity in the research community and the business READ MORE Download Staff Profile

Abstract: In domain specific modeling language development, model interactions and transformations play a crucial role. This paper introduces a new, syntax directed approach for the specification of modelinteractions for transformations within a domain specific modeling language. The technique is based on tokenization of the characteristic values and attributes of possible component elements of a fluid supply system. To demonstrate the mapping, expression parse trees and streams of tokens are recursively specified as syntax directed definitions in a context free grammar.…
