A Quantitative Analysis of the Utilization of Associative Memories in Data Management
February 1974 (vol. 23 no. 2)
pp. 121-133
C.R. DeFiore, Headquarters Defense Communications Agency
An associative approach to data management is developed, and a methodology for measuring the performance and effectiveness of this approach is provided. Mathematical models which quantitatively describe retrieval, storage requirements, updating, and flexibility are developed for both a class of current sequential systems and an associative system. Utilizing these models, a comparison is made between the two systems under certain assumptions so that for given classes of data management problems, one can determine which system is more favorable.
Index Terms:
Associative memories, content-addressable memories, data management, data structures, information systems, inverted lists.
