Title: Set Theoretic Data Structures (STDS): a tutorial

Abstract

Extended Set Theory as a data base management discipline has received attention in the data base literature. Set Theoretic Information Systems Corporation has, for some time, marketed a data base system based on the foundation of Extended Set Theory. This system is called Set Theoretic Data Structures (STDS). A series of examples shows that STDS is similar to relational algebraic data base management systems. The advantages of STDS are its straight-forward data base design, compact data representation, and flexible, powerful data manipulation operators, while its limitations are its low-level primitive user interface and the partial implementation of the Extended Set Theoretic concepts. To make STDS very attractive, a ''user-friendly'' interface should be developed, and some distinctive features of extended Set Theory (such as sets of sets) should be implemented. 8 figures, 1 table.
