Over 200,000 people have been grounded in good <em>database</em> design practice by reading Database Systems. The new edition of this bestseller brings it up to date with the latest developments in <em>database</em> technology and builds on the clear, accessible approach that has contributed to the success of previous editions.
A clear introduction to design, <em>implementation</em> and management issues, as well as an extensive treatment of <em>database</em> languages and standards, make this book an indispensable complete reference for <em>database</em> students and professionals alike
This textbook was designed for a second course in the computer science <em>database</em> sequence at Stanford, and is preceded by A First Course in Database Systems , 1997. It covers the <em>implementation</em> of a DBMS, notably storage structure, query processing, and transaction management. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
Database management <em>system</em>s have become ubiquitous as a fundamental tool for managing
information, and a course on the principles and practice of <em>database</em> <em>system</em>s is
now an integral part of computer science curricula. This book covers the fundamentals
of modern <em>database</em> management <em>system</em>s, in particular relational <em>database</em> <em>system</em>s.
It is intended as a text for an introductory <em>database</em> course for undergraduates, and
we have attempted to present the material in a clear, simple style
Three well-known computer scientists at Stanford University-Hector Garcia-Molina, Jeffrey D. Ullman, and Jennifer Widom-have written one of the most comprehensive books on <em>database</em> <em>system</em> <em>implementation</em>. Hector Garcia- Molina pioneered this book at Stanford as a second <em>database</em> <em>system</em>s course for computer science majors and industry-based professionals. It focuses on the <em>implementation</em> of <em>database</em> <em>system</em>s, including storage structures, query processing, and transaction management. Database System Implementation is valuable as an academic textbook or a professional reference. Noteworthy Features *Provides extensive coverage of query processing, including major algorithms for execution of queries and techniques for optimizing queries *Covers information integration, including warehousing and mediators, OLAP, and data-cube <em>system</em>s *Explains error-correction in RAID disks and covers bitmap indexes, data mining, data statistics, and pointer swizzling *Supports additional teaching materials found on the book's Web page at http://www-db.stanford.edu/-html *For college courses Prentice Hall offers a two-book package discount with A First Course in Database Systems and Database System Implementation This text covers a broad spectrum of knowledge and technology. This carefully class-tested, highly readable presentation provides students or professionals with the next level of study. Written from the point of view of the <em>database</em> designer, user, and application programmer, this book provides practical advice from well-know experts on how to implement state-of-the-art <em>database</em> <em>system</em>s.

Many enterprise applications prefer to store
XML data as a rich data type, i.e. a sequence of
bytes, in a relational <em>database</em> <em>system</em> to avoid the
complexity of decomposing the data into a large
number of tables and the cost of reassembling the
XML data. The upcoming release of Microsoft’s
SQL Server supports XQuery as the query
language over such XML data using its relational
