Conjunctive Query - Extensions of Conjunctive Queries

Extensions of Conjunctive Queries

Extensions of conjunctive queries capturing more expressive power include unions of conjunctive queries, which are equivalent to positive (i.e., negation-free) relational algebra, conjunctive queries extended by union and negation, which by Codd's theorem correspond to relational algebra and first-order logic, conjunctive queries with built-in predicates and conjunctive queries with aggregate functions. The formal study of all of these extensions is justified by their application in relational databases and is in the realm of database theory.

Famous quotes containing the words extensions of, queries and/or extensions:

    The psychological umbilical cord is more difficult to cut than the real one. We experience our children as extensions of ourselves, and we feel as though their behavior is an expression of something within us...instead of an expression of something in them. We see in our children our own reflection, and when we don’t like what we see, we feel angry at the reflection.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    All I can say, in answer to this kind queries [of friends] is that I have not the distemper called the Plague; but that I have all the plagues of old age, and of a shattered carcase.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    If we focus exclusively on teaching our children to read, write, spell, and count in their first years of life, we turn our homes into extensions of school and turn bringing up a child into an exercise in curriculum development. We should be parents first and teachers of academic skills second.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)
