abstract = {With the existence of many autonomous databases widely accessible through computer networks, users will require the capability to jointly manipulate data in different databases. A multidatabase system provides such a capability through a multidatabase manipulation language. The authors propose a theoretical foundation for such languages by presenting a multirelational algebra and calculus based on the relational algebra and calculus. The proposal is illustrated by various queries on an example multidatabase},
