note = {The quickly increasing number of spatio-temporal applications in fields like environmental management or geology is a new challenge to the development of database systems. This thesis addresses three areas of the problem of integrating spatio-temporal objects into databases. First, a new representational model for continuously changing, spatial 3D objects is introduced and transferred into a small system of classes within an object-oriented database framework. The model extends simplicial cell complexes to the spatio-temporal setting. The problem of closure under certain operations is investigated. Second, internal data structures are introduced that represent instances of the (user-level) spatio-temporal classes. A new technique provides a compromise between compact storage and efficient retrieval of spatio-temporal objects. These structures correspond to temporal graphs and support updates as well as the maintainance of connected components over time. Third, it is shown how to realise further operations on the new type of objects. Among these operations are range queries, intersection tests, and the Euclidean distance function.},
