This text attempts to offer the tools and techniques for effective data-base design, emphasizing the latest relational theory, and featuring an integrated methodology that is a natural top-down reduction process from user requirement to a database. The presentation concentrates initially on widely-accepted design techniques and then shows how different modern technqiues can be combined to form integrated methodologies. Topics are organized into a sequence of clearly defined stages that follow the database design cycle; algorithms and structured steps are provided for conversion between stages. The text covers both the theoretical issues - such as relational theory and data models - and practical considerations of databases and database design, such as selection of database implementations and performance estimates of selected database structures. Problems include those oriented toward specific design stages as well as projects that cover the entire design cycle.
