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

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 )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 195 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

Time and relational theory : temporal databases in the relational model and SQL by C. J Date( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 23 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 warehousesUsers 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 su

1 edition published in 2000 in Polish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
