Provides a systematic introduction to temporal model and time calculation
Presents techniques in temporal query and middle-ware (TempDB)
Explores the study and implementation of efficient temporal query technology based on Indexes

Provides an application of temporal information processing
"Temporal Information Processing Technology and Its Applications" systematically studies temporal information processing technology and its applications. The book covers following subjects: 1) time model, calculus and logic; 2) temporal data models, semantics of temporal variable ‘now’ temporal database concepts; 3) temporal query language, a typical temporal database management system: TempDB; 4) temporal extension on XML, workflow and knowledge base; and, 5) implementation patterns of temporal applications, a typical example of temporal application.
The book is intended for researchers, practitioners and graduate students of databases, data/knowledge management and temporal information processing.
Dr. Yong Tang is a professor at the Computer School, South China Normal University, China.
