Folks -- as I said in class, we'll be covering the internals of database systems in the next two weeks. The books spends a mere 400 pages on the topic, but below I point out a subset of it that is suggested reading. Some of them can just be skimmed (as noted). Chapter 11: skim 11.1-11.3, read 11.4 Chapter 13: read 13.1 only until 13.1.4 read 13.2-end (the stuff in 13.4.5 is useful, but won't be covered in class). Chapter 15: read until 15.5, but 15.2 skim 15.4: only 15.4.5--15.4.7 15.5: only 15.5.5-15.5.6 15.6: only 15.6.3-15.6.4 Chapter 16: read 16.1-16.6, but skim 16.1 skip (yes, SKIP) 16.4.7 skim 16.7
Folks, Next monday we'll cover relational algebra and XML data management. The readings in the book are: 5.1-5.3 for relational algebra 4.6-4.7 for XML. The book doesn't cover XML at the same level of detail as I will. In particular, it doesn't talk about query languages for XML which I will cover. You can poke around the following URL for information on XQuery: http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery/ Alon
