* Professor Ozkarahan was one of the pioneers of database machine
research as well as the founder of database systems research in Turkey.
Moreover, his studies centered on database machines to which he made
significant contributions. Professor Ozkarahan is well known for his
pioneering work on the RAP (Relational Associative Processor) database
machine. He designed RAP to provide hardware implementations of
relational databases. RAP includes all the relational algebra
operations, and an implicit form of the semi join operation that later
became the cornerstone of query optimization in relational databases.
Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Esen Ozkarahan and working
with him will always remember his great vision, eminent achievements,
and generous friendship.
