Abstract

Sophisticated information systems require a powerful query language and an efficient implementation strategy. In practice, these information systems are either built on the top of an existing database management system or built as an expert system with deductive capabilities. Both of these implementations must provide a mechanism to express recursive queries. It is therefore a necessity for the system to have an efficient algorithm to evaluate these queries. In this thesis, we give a detailed description of a bibliographic database, a set of recursive queries, an overview of some standard query processing algorithms, and an implementation of these queries in DATALOG.
