10 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Database in Depth, author and well-known database authority Chris Date lays out the fundamentals of the relational model. Don't let a lack to formal education in database theory hold you back. Instead, let Chris's clear explanation of relational concepts, set theory, the difference between model and implementation, relational algebra, normalization, and much more set you apart and well above the competition when it comes to getting work done with a relational database."--Jacket

SQL and relational theory : how to write accurate SQL code by C. J Date( Book )

35 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

SQL is full of difficulties and traps for the unwary. You can avoid them if you understand relational theory, but only if you know how to put the theory into practice. In this insightful book, the author explains relational theory in depth, and demonstrates through numerous examples and exercises how you can apply it directly to your use of SQL. This second edition includes new material on recursive queries, "missing information" without nulls, new update operators, and topics such as aggregate operators, grouping and ungrouping, and view updating. If you have a modest-to-advanced background in SQL, you'll learn how to deal with a host of common SQL dilemmas

The relational database dictionary : a comprehensive glossary of relational terms and concepts, with illustrative examples by C. J Date( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As more and more people turn to databases for both large systems and small web-based applications, misunderstandings arise about the precise meaning of terms like "join", "instantiation", "view", and others. Those misunderstandings can affect design and programming that lead to problems down the road. "The Relational Database Dictionary" is exactly what designers, programmers, students, and database administrators (DBAs) need, a single source where they can find precise definitions. Authored by C.J. Date, a respected expert who is widely regarded as the developer of relational database technology while at IBM, this pocket-sized dictionary is the definitive glossary of terms and concepts used with relational databases such as Oracle products, IBM's DB2, Microsoft's SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. "The Relational Database Dictionary" provides structure and clarity that will help build proficiency and accuracy in working with today's relational databases. There is no other quick reference of this type available

Temporal data and the relational model : a detailed investigation into the application of interval and relation theory to the problem of temporal database management by C. J Date( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

P Temporal database systems are systems that provide special support for storing, querying, and updating historical and/or future data. Current DBMSs provide essentially no temporal features at all, but this situation is likely to change soon for a variety of reasons; in fact, temporal databases are virtually certain to become important sooner rather than later, in the commercial world as well as in academia. This book provides an in-depth description of the foundations and principles on which those temporal DBMSs will be built. These foundations and principles are firmly rooted in the relational model of data; thus, they represent an evolutionary step, not a revolutionary one, and they will stand the test of time. This book is arranged in three parts and a set of appendixes: * Preliminaries: Provides a detailed review of the relational model, and an overview of the Tutorial D language. * Laying the Foundations: Explains basic temporal data problems and introduces fundamental constructs and operators for addressing those problems. * Building on the Foundations: Applies the material of the previous part to issues of temporal database design, temporal constraints, temporal query and update, and much more. * Appendixes: Include annotated references and bibliography, implementation considerations, and other topics. Key features: * Describes a truly relational approach to the temporal data problem. * Addresses implementation as well as model issues. * Covers recent research on new database design techniques, a new normal form, new relational operators, new update operators, a new approach to the problem of "granularity," support for "cyclic point types," and other matters. * Includes review questions and exercises in every chapter. * Suitable for both reference and tutorial purposes

Relational theory for computer professionals by C. J Date( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All of today{u2019}s mainstream database products support the SQL language, and relational theory is what SQL is supposed to be based on. But are those products truly relational? Sadly, the answer is no. This book shows you what a real relational product would be like, and how and why it would be so much better than what{u2019}s currently available. With this unique book, you will: Learn how to see database systems as programming systems Get a careful, precise, and detailed definition of the relational model Explore a detailed analysis of SQL from a relational point of view There are literally hundreds of books on relational theory or the SQL language or both. But this one is different. First, nobody is more qualified than Chris Date to write such a book. He and Ted Codd, inventor of the relational model, were colleagues for many years, and Chris{u2019}s involvement with the technology goes back to the time of Codd{u2019}s first papers in 1969 and 1970. Second, most books try to use SQL as a vehicle for teaching relational theory, but this book deliberately takes the opposite approach. Its primary aim is to teach relational theory as such. Then it uses that theory as a vehicle for teaching SQL, showing in particular how that theory can help with the practical problem of using SQL correctly and productively. Any computer professional who wants to understand what relational systems are all about can benefit from this book. No prior knowledge of databases is assumed
Time and relational theory : temporal databases in the relational model and SQL by C. J Date( Book )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and Italian and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time and Relational Theory provides an in-depth description of temporal database systems, which provide special facilities for storing, querying, and updating historical and future data. Traditionally, database management systems provide little or no special support for temporal data at all. This situation is changing because: Cheap storage enables retention of large volumes of historical data in data warehouses Users are now faced with temporal data problems, and need solutions Temporal features have recently been incorporated into the SQL standard, and vendors have begun to add temporal support to their DBMS products Based on the groundbreaking text Temporal Data & the Relational Model (Morgan Kaufmann, 2002) and new research led by the authors, Time and Relational Theory is the only book to offer a complete overview of the functionality of a temporal DBMS. Expert authors Nikos Lorentzos, Hugh Darwen, and Chris Date describe an approach to temporal database management that is firmly rooted in classical relational theory and will stand the test of time. This book covers the SQL:2011 temporal extensions in depth and identifies and discusses the temporal functionality still missing from SQL. Understand how the relational model provides an ideal basis for taming the complexities of temporal databases Learn how to analyze and evaluate commercial temporal products with this timely and important information Be able to use sound principles in designing and using temporal databases Understand the temporal support recently added to SQL with coverage of the new SQL features in this unique, accurate, and authoritative reference Appreciate the benefits of a truly relational approach to the problem with this clear, user friendly presentation
