Therefore… Relationships between domains create new domains –All domains are created from a few fundamental domains (called Primary or Base domains) –Domains derived from relationships between domains are called secondary domains Eg: Velocity may be derived from Length and Time duration, Color Preference may be derived from Color and Preference, Area may be derived from a recursive (multiplication) relationship with Length, Unit Price from the Money and Enumeration domains UOMs of derived domains may be derived from the UOMs of the domains they were created from PERSON VISUAL CAR COLOR PREFERENC E COLOR PREFERENCE PERSON CAR Visualize Car SEE Domains may also be polymorphisms of parent domains; inherit properties of their parent(s) –Eg: Nominal to Difference scaled domain –If Nil is added to a domain, the resulting subtype will inherit all units of measure of the parent, but with zeros reset in every UOM to map to Nil The new UOM is a subtype of the old UOM Eg: The discovery of an absolute zero temperature created the Kelvin measure from the Celsius measure of temperature

5 © Amit Mitra & Amar Gupta NEW DOMAINS FROM OLD All domains are created from a few fundamental domains (called Primary or Base domains) Rule 2: Multiplication and division relationships create new domains –Eg: Length/Time = velocity; Length x Length = Area Rule 3: Addition and subtraction map back to a subtype of the same domain –Eg: velocity - velocity is velocity (relative velocity); sum of weights is weight –Addition and subtraction between subtypes is permitted Eg: 3 Fruits + 5 Oranges + 2 Apples = 10 Fruit (see suppl. Box 43) –The domain of sums (and differences) adds information on values that were summed (or subtracted) to the parent domain Rule 4: Adding and subtracting values across heterogeneous domains (not even subtypes) is meaningless –Eg: Price + Quantity is a meaningless number, 2 apples + 3 oranges is a meaningless number unless we consider “Fruit”, their common parent See notes on the blackboard on domains of meaning, Box 16 in your text book. Some salient issues: –Domain of gaps is a subtype of its parent domain Inherits UOMs of its parent –Any arithmetic operation in which the Nil value does not cancel out is meaningless in a difference scaled domain Addition is meaningless –The unknown nil value may be arbitrarily mapped to some non-zero number, the result is therefore unknown Averages are meaningful, Subtraction is meaningful: creates the ratio scaled domain of gaps –Enumeration and proportions in exhaustive/non-exhaustive partitions An instance is a special kind of subtype of its parent class –Adding proportions across partitions or across attributes is meaningless

7 © Amit Mitra & Amar Gupta DOMAINS OF INFORMATION QUALITY Exhaustivity/Completeness –Bounded above (total) and below (nil) Eg: Whether the roster of employees lists all employee names or not Validity (accuracy of interpretation and meaningfulness within a context) –Relates at least two objects Eg: Is length a measure of time? Can the proportion of effort expended exceed 100% of capacity? Does the length of a column of mercury in a thermometer measure temperature? –Bounded above (total) and below (nil) Either total or nil in a deterministic model Accuracy –Measurement bias Eg: A weighing scale that consistently shows 2 lbs over the real weight of an object Reliability –Consistency of measurement results or meanings Eg: Reliability of weather forecasts; another eg: A weighing scale that consistently shows a positive bias of 2 pounds is inaccurate but reliable; the reliability of the meaning of “man” Cardinality –Enumeration: Polymorphism of cardinality when extent (size) is finite
