Formal Modelling and Application of Graph Transformations in the Resource Description Framework


In this thesis, a connection between two areas of research is developed. On the one hand, the Resource Desription Framework (RDF) is the basis of the Semantic Web. On the other hand, algebraic graph transformation has a long history of providing formally well-founded modification concepts for various graph and graph-like structures. By designing an algebraic transformation approach for RDF, the rich theoretical results of algebraic graph transformation are made available to the RDF world.
