Basic Data Concepts in ADAMSReport
Every database implementation is eventually grounded in a number of primitive concepts which are fundamental to understanding the system. ADAMS is based on five primitive concepts: attribute, co-domain, element, map, and set, which are developed in this preliminary design report. We then show that more traditional database constructs, such as relations, networks, and/or arrays, can be expressed in terms of these primitives.
