Recursion theory

SQL is full of difficulties and traps for the unwary. You can avoid them if you understand relational theory, but only if you know how to put the theory into practice. In this insightful book, author C.J. Date explains relational theory in depth, and demonstrates through numerous examples and exercises how you can apply it directly to your use of SQL. This second edition includes new material on recursive queries, “missing information” without nulls, new update operators, and topics such as aggregate operators, grouping and ungrouping, and view updating.

Various feature descriptions are being employed in constrainedbased grammar formalisms. The common notational primitive of these descriptions are functional attributes called features. The descriptions considered in this paper are the possibly quantified firstorder formulae obtained from a signature of features and sorts. We establish a complete firstorder theory F T by means of three axiom schemes and construct three elementarily equivalent models. One of the models consists of socalled feature graphs, a data structure common in computational linguistics. ...

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command seeks to expand the technology base upon which future shore facilities are founded. An important area in which a new design approach is being developed is in the management and understanding of those characteristics of earthquake and explosively generated foundation motions that damage or destroy Naval equipment. This report is a part of the design method development. Specifically, it documents and offers a new method of shock and response spectrum computation.

ON THE APPEARANCE OF PRIMES IN LINEAR RECURSIVE SEQUENCES JOHN H. JAROMA Received 16 August 2004 and in revised form 5 December 2004 We present an application of diﬀerence equations to number theory by considering the set √ √ of linear secondorder recursive relations, Un+2 ( √ R,Q) = RUn+1 − QUn , U0 = 0, U1 = 1, √ √ and Vn+2 ( R,Q) = RVn+1 − QVn , V0 = 2,V1 = R, where R and Q are relatively prime integers and n ∈ {0,1,...}. These equations describe the set of extended Lucas sequences, or rather, the Lehmer sequences. We...

This book addresses the stochastic modeling of telecommunication networks, introducing the main mathematical tools for that purpose, such as Markov processes, real and spatial point processes and stochastic recursions, and presenting a wide list of results on stability, performances and comparison of systems. The authors propose a comprehensive mathematical construction of the foundations of stochastic network theory: Markov chains, continuous time Markov chains are extensively studied using an original martingalebased approach.
