   Tree v. Table - A relational XML object model...?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi All,

I recognized in CS 101 that a binary tree is just a table, skewed 45
degrees, a non-binary tree a sparse table, skewed 45 degrees. They are
abstractions of the *same* concept! Hence, it ought to be just as valid to
speak of XML tables, as XML trees.

Perhaps  a matrix-algebra mathematician can get around to having an
epiphany, and come up with the ..... "relational XML object model".

Possible, or pie-in-the-sky?
