From firstname.lastname@example.org Tue Oct 20 15:08:35 1998 Date: Tue, 20 Oct 1998 11:49:33 -0400 From: Paul Prescod <email@example.com> To: xml-dev <firstname.lastname@example.org>, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Sean Mc Grath <email@example.com> Subject: Forest Automata formalism
Several people have asked me about my paper on Forest Automata. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find time to compile a decent bibliography, nor add the code examples I hoped to, but I'm going to release it anyhow. There is a partial(?) bibliography on Robin Cover's SGML/XML page.
My paper (sans biblio) can be found at:
Forest Automata theory is a formalism for describing SGML/XML validation. The formalism makes clear some obvious extensions to SGML/XML validationand can be used as a source of ideas and answers relating to DTD parameterization, "data types" (lexical data types), validation-in-context, query languages etc.
Hopefully I will find time or funding to expand this paper eventually, because there are many interesting highways and biways that it hints at but does not explore.
