Introduction to DBMS architectures and file organization. Presentation of data models and methodologies for the design of (relational) data bases. Relational model: structures, algebra, calculus, database normalization theory. Operational topics: query optimization, recovery, concurrent access, security, semantic file and system structure, indexing and hashing query optimization, recovery, concurrency control, security, semantic integrity.
with the completion of this course, students will have obtained
familiarization with conceptual modeling processes,
understanding of the structure and semantics of the relational data model and of languages for data management and querying,
familiarization with the use of SQL,
understanding of normalization theory and of formal approaches to database design,
understanding of operational aspects of database management systems
