SQL and Relational Theory, 2nd Edition by C.J. Date

Posted by sriram on January 19, 2012


C.J. Date, is an independent author, lecturer, researcher, and consultant, specializing in relational database technology. He is best known for his book An Introduction to Database Systems.This book does n`t deal with SQL statements .. But  is all about between SQL and the Relational concepts theory  in a mathematical way.How SQL departs from relational theory, the basic principles of relational theory etc…

This Book contains 12 Chapters .. you can find Exercises  at the end of each chapter.I like the Appendix section  of this Book.

Appendix A:  The Relational Model
Appendix B : SQL Departures from the Relational Model
Appendix C:  A Relational Approach to Missing Information
Appendix D:  A Tutorial D Grammar
Appendix E:  Summary of Recommendations
Appendix F: Answers to Exercises
Appendix G: Suggestions for Further Reading.
I recommend this book  for all  who  works with SQL.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad
    for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
    get the hang of it!
