The SheafSystem™ libraries implement the sheaf data model, a non-relational data model designed for representation, manipulation, and storage of the large and complex data sets common in scientific and technical computing. These data sets represent the topological, geometric, and algebraic information required by mathematics-based scientific and technical computing applications. They are much more structured than the "unstructured" data that is the focus of the "noSQL" category of non-relational data management technologies and also more structured than the tables of the relational model. The SheafSystem™ uses advanced mathematics - posets, lattices, sheaves, and fiber bundles - to revolutionize data management for this highly structured region of the data complexity spectrum.
"We have implemented the sheaf data model as a layered set of C++ class libraries with bindings for Java, Python, and C#. These libraries allow an application programmer to easily create, manipulate, store, retrieve, and inter-operate diverse representations of physical data - whether it comes from observations, experiments, or simulations."
"We anticipate that members of the technical computing community will find this system very useful for representing and managing data in a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines. It should be especially valuable in domains such as geoscience that require the integration and interoperation of numerous data formats," said Dr.
"The scientific computing community has a long tradition of using and contributing to open source software. By providing an open source edition of the SheafSystem, we hope to make its benefits available to the widest possible spectrum of users. We also hope contributions from the large number of expert developers in the community will help the system realize its potential to revolutionize data management in scientific computing."
