Ontology Matching Book

Ontology Matching

Euzenat and Shvaiko’s book is devoted to ontology matching as a solution to the semantic heterogeneity problem faced by computer systems. Ontology matching finds correspondences between semantically related entities of different ontologies. These correspondences may stand for equivalence as well as other relations, such as consequence, subsumption, or disjointness between ontology entities. Many different matching solutions have been proposed so far from various viewpoints, e.g., databases, information systems, and artificial intelligence.

With Ontology Matching, researchers and practitioners will find a reference book that presents currently available work in a uniform framework. In particular, the presented work and techniques can equally be applied to database schema matching, catalog integration, XML schema matching and other related problems. The book presents the state of the art and the latest research results in ontology matching by providing a detailed account of matching techniques and matching systems in a systematic way from theoretical, practical and application perspectives.
