Database Management Systems, 9780072465358 (0072465352), McGraw-Hill, 2000
DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS is designed for use in a course in databases. This book is distinctive in its emphasis on the practical side of databases. This means that it has unique coverage of database design, uses SQL throughout the book to demonstrate different concepts, and has an emphasis on query evaluation and optimization. In this revision the author has moved coverage of the ER model earlier in the book. Additionally, he has added chapters on Internet Databases, Decision Support, Data Mining, Object-Relational Databases, Spatial Databases and Deductive and Active Databases. DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS is accompanied by a website that includes solutions, presentation materials, practical SQL assignments, the minibase software and helpful lecture tips.

Provides a hands-on approach to relational database systems, with an emphasis on practical topics such as indexing methods, SQL, and database design. DLC: Database management.

Database management systems have become ubiquitous as a fundamental tool for managing information, and a course on the principles and practice of database systems is now an integral part of computer science curricula. This book covers the fundamentals of modern database management systems, in particular relational database systems. It is intended as a text for an introductory database course for undergraduates, and we have attempted to present the material in a clear, simple style.

A quantitative approach is used throughout and detailed examples abound. An extensive set of exercises (for which solutions are available online to instructors) accompanies each chapter and reinforces students' ability to apply the concepts to real problems. The book contains enough material to support a second course, ideally supplemented by selected research papers. It can be used, with the accompanying software and SQL programming assignments, in two distinct kinds of introductory courses:
  1. A course that aims to present the principles of database systems, with a practical focus but without any implementation assignments. The SQL programming assignments are a useful supplement for such a course. The supplementary Minibase software can be used to create exercises and experiments with no programming.
  2. A course that has a strong systems emphasis and assumes that students have good programming skills in C and C++. In this case the software can be used as the basis for projects in which students are asked to implement various parts of a relational DBMS. Several central modules in the project software (e.g., heap les, bu er manager, B+ trees, hash indexes, various join methods, concurrency control, and recovery algorithms) are described in sucient detail in the text to enable students to implement them, given the (C++) class interfaces.
