Relational Database Systems provides a timely introduction to the type of systems that are the current mainstay of the database management field. This book serves as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as an informative reference for researchers and professionals in all database aspects of computer science. It presents important querying systems including SQL and QUEL, and covers their respective theoretical foundations in relational algebra, tuple calculus, and domain calculus.The presentation of SQL adheres to the ANSI standard; however, the book discusses the most popular SQL dialects; a separate chapter covers imbedded SQL. The text also contains references to many significant relational database products, including INGRES, ORACLE, DB2, PARADOX, and SYBASE.Relational Database Systems concentrates on those issues that are most relevant to database design and application development. Exercises that constitute important extensions of the material are provided at the end of each chapter. The book assumes a knowledge of programming languages and datastructures, and some mathematical induction.
