Science Library

MonetDB has been used as a basis for database research at CWI since 1993. A significant number of people have contributed in terms of both useful code and user experiences. Their science results are readily available through Google scholar or the CWI repository. The small selection of key publications below provides a good starting point for getting acquainted with the design considerations and these experiences. The bibtex record is provided for ease of referencing our work in your scientific papers.
