* An abstract data type is a collection of objects that have the same functionality.
After you define an abstract data type, you can use it in your C# code just as you would a primitive data type.

The Global Abstract Data Type Layer, supported with Parallel-Arrays in the lower layer, provides users with a data-parallel representation and a set of APIs for a variety of seismic imaging data types.
It is important to note that in a design of abstract data types like the one of this paper, the definitions of the structure of entities (e.g., values of spatial data types) and of the semantics of operations can be given at different levels of abstraction.
Packages can be used for many purposes, including but not limited to, building abstract data types. Let us stress this point: an Ada package is not necessarily an ADT; a package containing the definition of a private type together with associated operations is the Ada way of defining an ADT.
This would best be expressed theoretically as a formal specification of an Abstract Data Type [29].
Ideally, the developers would define the abstract data types directly in the database system.
The user of a shared instance of an abstract data type such as a priority queue will usually assume that the operations on it are serializable.
Abstract data type declarations appear in typed programming languages like Ada, Alphard, CLU and ML.
Some properties of a join index are (i) its efficient use of memory and adaptiveness to parallel execution, (ii) its compatibility with other operations (including select and union), (iii) its support for abstract data type join predicates, (iv) its support for multi-relation clustering, and (v) its use in representing directed graphs and in evaluating recursive queries.
