A study of the impact of objects on the relational database model. There are two camps for database development - relational which is predominant, and object which is growing. As the market grows there is an increased need for a universal system and this book offers the model for such a system

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
Databases, types and the relational model : the third manifesto by C. J Date( Book )

"Databases, Types, and the Relational Model: The Third Manifesto is a proposal for the future direction of data and database management systems (DBMSs). It provide a precise, formal definition of an abstract model of data, to be considered as a foundation for the design of a DBMS and a database language."--BOOK JACKET

Database Explorations : essays on the Third Manifesto and related topics( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A note from the authors: Dear Reader: "Database is boring." That sentiment is heard all too widely these days. But it's so wrong! The database field is full of important problems still to be solved and interesting issues still to be examined - and some of those problems and issues are explored in this book. Between us, we have nearly 80 years experience in this field, and we're still actively researching, exploring, and learning, as well as helping others do the same. The present book is the latest in a series devoted to these goals; using "The Third Manifesto" (a detailed proposal for the future of database technology) as a foundation, it reports on some of our most recent investigations in this field. Among many other things, it includes the most recent version of "The Third Manifesto" itself; specifications for a conforming language called Tutorial D; and a detailed proposal for a model of type inheritance. Other significant features include: - Extending the foreign key concept - Simplifying queries using image relations - Closer looks at logic and relational algebra - Suggested approaches to "missing information" - Responses to certain "Manifesto" criticisms - Clarifying aspects of normalization The tone of the book overall is naturally somewhat serious, but there are moments of light relief as well. We hope you enjoy it. C.J. Date and Hugh Darwen"--Back cover

Applied mathematics for database professionals by Lex de Haan( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book touches on an area seldom explored: the mathematical underpinnings of the relational database. The topic is important, but far too often ignored. This is the first book to explain the underlying math in a way that�s accessible to database professionals. Just as importantly, if not more so, this book goes beyond the abstract by showing readers how to apply that math in ways that will make them more productive in their jobs. What�s in this book will "open the eyes" of most readers to the great power, elegance, and simplicity inherent in relational database technology
