Applied Mathematics for Database Professionals introduces you to the logic and set theory that underlies relational database technology. You will see how mathematics can be used in constraint definition, in data manipulation and retrieval, and in data modelling. The math that you learn in this book will put you above the level of understanding of most database users today. You'll better understand the technology and be able to apply it more effectively. You'll avoid data anomalies like redundancy and inconsistency. Understanding what's in this book will take your mastery of relational technology to heights you may not have thought were possible.

Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"It starts with the mathematical foundation of relational databases: concepts and their notation are introduced step-by-step, defined, and clearly explained. ... this book is a very good introduction to the foundations of database design for an intermediate or advanced audience ... ." (K. Balogh, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (12), December, 2008)
