Description

Introduction to database structure, organization, languages and implementation. Relational model. Query languages, query processing, query optimization, normalization, file structures, concurrency control and recovery algorithms, and distributed databases. Studies of actual systems. While database management system usage is covered, emphasis is on the systems-building aspects of these large, complex systems. We also relate the material to modern applications such as the web. Prerequisites: CSCI 160, CSCI 180, or CSCI 190. One of CSCI 330 or CSCI 320 is strongly recommended.
