Foundations of data management systems come in two flavours. On the one hand there are formal theories based on areas such as logic, discrete mathematics, and probability theory. On the other hand, researchers have developed a wealth of technologies to store, access and manipulate large amounts of information. In its research, the group investigates data management applications to identify foundational challenges and to develop both data management technologies and their formal underpinnings. The group pursues several directions:
The individual members have built up research competencies on various foundational topics in databases, which the group combines and focuses.
