From thew Abstract:

"Large volumes of data produced and shared within scientific communities are analyzed by many researchers to investigate different scientific theories. Currently the analyses are implemented in traditional programming languages such as C++. This is inefficient for research productivity, since it is difficult to write, understand, and modify such programs. Furthermore, programs should scale over large data volumes and analysis complexity, which further complicates code development.

"This thesis investigates the use of database technologies to implement scientific applications, in which data are complex objects desribing measurements of independent events and the analyses are selections ov events by applying conjunctions of complex numerical filters on each object separately..."
