  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  Aditi 
 
    The  Aditi  Deductive  Database  System.  A 
  multi-user  {deductive  database}  system  from  the  Machine 
  Intelligence  Project  at  the  {University  of  Melbourne}.  It 
  supports  base  {relation}s  defined  by  {fact}s  (relations  in  the 
  sense  of  {relational  database}s)  and  {derived  relation}s 
  defined  by  {rule}s  that  specify  how  to  compute  new  information 
  from  old  information. 
 
  Both  base  relations  and  the  rules  defining  derived  relations 
  are  stored  on  disk  and  are  accessed  as  required  during  query 
  evaluation.  The  rules  defining  derived  relations  are 
  expressed  in  a  {Prolog}-like  language,  which  is  also  used  for 
  expressing  queries. 
 
  Aditi  supports  the  full  structured  data  capability  of  Prolog. 
  Base  relations  can  store  arbitrarily  nested  terms,  for  example 
  arbitrary  length  lists,  and  rules  can  directly  manipulate  such 
  terms.  Base  relations  can  be  indexed  with  {B-tree}s  or 
  multi-level  signature  files. 
 
  Users  can  access  the  system  through  a  {Motif}-based  query  and 
  database  administration  tool,  or  through  a  command  line 
  interface.  There  is  also  in  interface  that  allows  {NU-Prolog} 
  programs  to  access  Aditi  in  a  transparent  manner.  Proper 
  {transaction  processing}  is  not  supported  in  this  release. 
 
  The  beta  release  runs  on  {SPARC}/{SunOS4}.1.2  and 
  {MIPS}/{Irix}4.0.
