Non-Standard Glossary Definitions

Non-Standard Glossary Definitions

Broadly speaking, the semantics entry of a Glossary definition describes a concept, while the Mechanics entry describes its implementation. However, in some cases, there doesn’t seem to be a need for both kinds of entry, and so those definitions will have just a Mechanics section, or just a Semantics section. And in other cases, it seems more appropriate to provide a general description rather than to attempt a precise definition.

But the heart of this Glossary are the definitions which have both a Semantics and a Mechanics section. Together, the collection of their semantics entries is a summary statement of Asserted Versioning as a theory of bi-temporal data management, while the collection of their mechanics entries is a summary statement of the implementation of the theory in the Asserted Versioning Framework.
