Summary:
Information modeling technology - the open representation of information for database and other computing applications - has grown significantly in recent years as the need for universal systems of information coding has steadily increased. EXPRESS is a particularly successful ISO International Standard language family for object-flavoured information modeling. This cogent introduction to EXPRESS provides numerous, detailed examples of the language family's applicability to a diverse range of endeavours, including mechanical engineering, petroleum exploration, stock exchange asset management, and the human genome project. The text also examines the history, practicalities, and implications of information modeling in general, and considers the vagaries of normal language that necessitate precise communication methods.
