Abstract
The definition of a relationship type includes its participant entity types and the cardinality constraints. Relationship type refinement is the specification of additional constraints when some of the participant entities are also instances of other entity types. The best known types of refinements are refinement of participants and refinement of cardinality constraints. These refinements have been studied, up to now, only for conceptual models with single classification. In this paper we exte...
