18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,024 libraries worldwide
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
The relational database dictionary by C. J Date( file )
39 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 814 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

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."--BOOK JACKET

Database design and relational theory normals forms and all that jazz by C. J Date( file )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide
"What makes this book different from others on database design? Many resources on design practice do little to explain the underlying theory, and books on design theory are aimed primarily at theoreticians. In this book, renowned expert Chris Date bridges the gap by introducing design theory in ways practitioners can understand - drawing on lessons learned over four decades of experience to demonstrate why proper database design is so critical in the first place."--publisher's website
