Sample text

1: Relation values and variables—an example So there’s a logical difference between relation values and relation variables. The trouble is, the database community has historically used the same term, relation, to stand for both concepts, and that practice has certainly led to confusion (not least in contexts that are the subject of the present book, such as further normalization). In this book, therefore, I’ll distinguish very carefully between the two from this point forward—I’ll talk in terms of relation values when I mean relation values and relation variables when I mean relation variables.

In mathematics, we often find ourselves having to deal with some large, possibly even infinite, set of objects of some kind: for example, the set of all matrices, or the set of all rational numbers, or—coming a little closer to home—the set of all relations. In such a situation, it’s desirable to find a set of canonical forms for the objects in question. 12 Various “interesting” properties that apply to x1 also apply to x2; thus, we can study just the small set s2, not the large set s1, in order to prove a variety of “interesting” theorems or results.

1 What’s The Information Principle? 2 Which of the following statements are true? a. Relations (and hence relvars) have no ordering to their tuples. b. Relations (and hence relvars) have no ordering to their attributes. c. Relations (and hence relvars) never have any unnamed attributes. d. Relations (and hence relvars) never have two or more attributes with the same name. e. Relations (and hence relvars) never contain duplicate tuples. f. Relations (and hence relvars) never contain nulls. g. Relations (and hence relvars) are always in 1NF.
