Summary
  • Developments in modern computers and applications have resulted in a shift away from relational databases into a chaotic proliferation of specialized database systems. As many of these advanced databases are unable to communicate with each other, database interoperability and data integration have become important challenges. The search for a suitable common standard for the numerous varieties of current databases has generated renewed interest in extensions of relational databases, such as constraint databases. --
  • This unique, reader-friendly textbook/reference provides a comprehensive coverage of the field of databases. Introduction to Databases reveals a deep insight into the workings of numerous database systems, enabling readers to develop complex and rewarding database applications. Students will gain hands-on experience by following the suggested exercises, and are offered the support to begin their own research projects in database systems. The theory covered is complemented by a detailed examination of specific applications from a broad range of diverse areas. The text assumes as prerequisite only basic discrete mathematics, linear algebra, and programming knowledge. --
  • An essential resource for advanced undergraduate students, even non-computer science students with little prior exposure to databases will find this a clear introduction to the theory, the various types of databases and their applications. Professional database experts will also find this a valuable reference. --Book Jacket
