In this paper, we study a new evaluation technique for incrementally maintaining derived facts whenever updates occur on base facts. Our method is based upon the semi-naive evaluation so it is easy to implement; it is set-oriented, multiple updates may be dealt with in a single manipulation; and insertion and deletion are treated uniformly.
