Answering Queries Using Views

Book Description

The topic of using views to answer queries has been popular for a few decades now, as it cuts across domains such as query optimization, , data warehousing, website design, and, recently, database-as-a- and data placement in cloud systems. This book assembles foundational work on answering queries using views in a self-contained manner, with an effort to choose material that constitutes the backbone of the research. It presents efficient algorithms and covers the following problems: query containment; rewriting queries using views in various logical languages; equivalent rewritings and maximally contained rewritings; and certain answers in the data- and data- settings. Query languages that are considered are fragments of , in particular, select-project-join queries, also called conjunctive queries (with or without arithmetic comparisons or negation), and aggregate queries.
