Abstract : Project ISTP has been engaged in basic research aimed at developing theory and technique for the analysis and description of data structures. Three principal objectives were defined at the outset: Description of data structures with precision and conciseness for communication between designers, implementers, and users; Description of data structures leading to implementation insights; Description of data structures leading to evaluations of the form: Given in particular computing system and a given class of storage-and retrieval problems, how suitable is a described structure as a means of accomplishing problem solutions on the proposed equipment. This report gives the main results to date of the project. (Author)
