Equally covered are the relational model and the object relational model. The book fairly recognizes both the strengths and the weaknesses of the different model types and the book is quite fair in the criticism.
This is important because — for whatever reason — often times when models are discussed, the discussion often turns into a religious food fight, where each side professes that its model is the only true and righteous way.
This book does not condescend to this low level of discussion, and that is one of the strengths of the book. I saw only one small passage that I took exception to in the book.
The book states that data marts can be created directly from source systems. While this is true — such creations can be made — when they are made, the resulting structure is not a data warehouse. But this is a small point and does not detract from the other very positive contributions made by the book. As one reads the chapters on the different types of structures that can be found in conventional, spatial and temporal data warehouses, there is a faint echo of the seminal works of Donald Knuth, who, decades earlier wrote the leading book on data structures.
Since the beginning of the relational model in the s, many types of normal forms have been dened. In addition, normal forms have also been dened for other models, such as the entity-relationship model and the object-relational model.
In the following, we consider only four normal forms that are widely used in relational databases.
As already said, the relational model allows only attributes that are atomic and monovalued. This restriction is called the rst normal form.
As we shall see in Sect. In order to dene the second normal form, we must dene the following concepts: A prime attribute is an attribute that is part of a key. A full functional dependency is a dependency X Y in which the removal of an attribute from X invalidates the dependency.
Now we can give the denition of the second normal form: A relation schema is in the second normal form if every nonprime attribute is fully functionally dependent on every key.
As we can see, the table Participates above is not in the second normal form, since Project acronym, Project name, and Project description are nonprime attributes they do not belong to a key and are dependent on Project id, i. To make the relation comply with the second normal form, the nonprime attributes dependent on Project id must be removed from the table and an additional table Project Project id, Project acronym, Project name, Project description must be added to store the information about projects.
The third normal form avoids redundancies such as those in the table Assistant in Fig.
In order to dene the third normal form, we must dene one additional concept: A dependency X Z is transitive if there is a set of attributes Y such that the dependencies X Y and Y Z hold. Now we can give the denition of the third normal form: A relation is in the third normal form if it is in the second normal form and there are no transitive dependencies between a key and a nonprime attribute.
The table Assistant above is not in the third normal form, since there is a transitive dependency from Employee no to Advisor id, and from Advisor id to Advisor rst name, Advisor last name, and Advisor email.
To make the relation comply with the third normal form, the attributes dependent on Advisor id must be removed from the table and an additional table Advisor Advisor id, Advisor acronym, Advisor rst name, Advisor last name must be added to store the information about advisors.
The Boyce-Codd normal form avoids redundancies such as those in the table Participates in Fig.
Recall that in this case it is supposed that there is a functional dependency Location Project id. A relation is in the Boyce-Codd normal form with respect to a set of functional dependencies F if, for every nontrivial dependency X Y that can be derived from F , X is a key or contains a key of R. The table Participates above is not in the Boyce-Codd normal form, since the above functional dependency holds and Location is not a key of the relation. To make the relation comply with the Boyce-Codd form, the attribute Location must be removed from the table, and an additional table LocationProject Location, Project id must be added to store the information about the project associated with each location.
Note that all relations in Fig. A relation is in the fourth normal form with respect to a set of functional and multivalued dependencies F if, for every nontrivial dependency X Y that can be derived from F , X is a key or contains a key of R.
The table above is not in the fourth normal form, since there are multivalued dependencies from Employee no to Research area, and from Employee no to Department id, and Employee no is not a key of the relation. To make the relation comply with the fourth normal form, the attribute Department id must be removed from the table, and an additional table AcademicStaDepart Employee, Department id must be added to store the information about the departments in which a member of the academic sta works.
As shown in the previous section, the relational model suers from several weaknesses that become evident when we deal with complex applications.
The relational model provides a very simple data structure i. Therefore, in a relational database, complex objects must be split into several tables.
This induces performance problems, since assembly and disassembly operations using joins are needed for retrieving and storing complex objects in a relational database. The set of types provided by relational DBMSs is very restrictive. It includes only some basic types such as integer, oat, string, and date, and uninterpreted binary streams that must be manipulated explicitly by the user.
Such a restricted set of types does not t complex application domains. Temporal Data Warehouses. Designing Conventional Data Warehouses. Designing Spatial and Temporal Data Warehouses.
