This book covers large varieties of research areas from the single view point of the information modeling. The information modeling is the beginning and the core of the problem solving. This volume also covers a wide spectrum of topics, such as: the modeling and the tools for concept formation; associative search for databases and knowledge bases; enterprise modeling for enterprise integration systems; meta models for integrating multiple models, and/or for selecting appropriate ones out of many; theoretical foundations for the modeling in databases, knowledge bases, and hyper media; natural language semantics for information modeling; software modeling for concurrent processes and distributed systems; object modeling and inference for vision and manipulator and information modeling and taxonomies. Its wide scope through the glasses of information modeling will provide advanced, in-depth and coherent understanding of these areas and their methodologies as well as the mutual relationships among them. At the same time, it will provide the advanced in-depth understanding of information modeling as the core concept and methodology for varieties of the problem solving.
