Abstract: Storing, tabulating, and graphing large volumes of data, not usually a strong point of a computer model, is more appropriate for a data base management system. A blend of these two technologies, data base management and scientific analysis, allows a 'best of both worlds' approach. The most appropriate analysis tool can be used without concern for data storing and handling capability. At the same time, the data base management software with the best graphics, tabulation, sort, and ad hoc query abilities can be selected to support that analysis program.
