Twenty-three high quality papers were solicited for this book, dealing with both the principles and pragmatics of using the entity-relationship approach in research and business. Two broad topics are covered: database design and database querying. The book reflects the trends in recent years of extending the modeling power of the ER model and of incorporating knowledge-based techniques into design tools for - and implementations of - ER-based systems.
