An instance method operates on a specific instance of a distinct or structured UDT. For example, an instance method named area might calculate and return the area of an instance of a structured UDT named circle that contains attributes x, y, and radius.

Instance methods can also provide transform, ordering, and cast functionality for a distinct or structured UDT. Teradata Database uses this functionality during certain operations involving the UDT.
