Lecture 04 Relational Database DesignNormalization-Part-1

- Overview of Relational DBMS
- Normalization(1st lecture)

Normalization

- The aim of normalization is to eliminate various anomalies (or undesirable aspects) of a relation in order to obtain “better” relations.
- The following four problems might exist in a relation scheme:
- Repetition anomaly
- Update anomaly
- Insertion anomaly
- Deletion anomaly

- The NAME,TITLE, SAL attribute values are repeated for each project that the employee is involved in.
- Waste of space
- Complicates updates
- Contrary to the spirit of databases

- If an engineer, who is the only employee on a project, leaves the company, his personal information cannot be deleted, or the information about that project is lost.
- May have to delete many tuples.

- Take each relation individually and “improve” it in terms of the desired characteristics
- Normal forms
- Atomic values (1NF)
- Can be defined according to keys and dependencies.
- Functional Dependencies ( 2NF, 3NF, BCNF)
- Multivalued dependencies (4NF)

- Normalization
- Normalization is a process of concept separationwhich applies a top-down methodology for producing a schema by subsequent refinements and decompositions.
- Do not combine unrelated sets of facts in one table; each relation should contain an independent set of facts.
- Universal relation assumption

- Normal forms

- How do we decompose a schema into a desirable normal form?
- What criteria should the decomposed schemas follow in order to preserve the semantics of the original schema?
- Reconstructability: recover the original relation no spurious joins
- Lossless decomposition: no information loss
- Dependency preservation: the constraints (i.e., dependencies) that hold on the original relation should be enforceable by means of the constraints (i.e., dependencies) defined on the decomposed relations.

Consider combining relations

sec_class(sec_id, building, room_number) and

section(course_id, sec_id, semester, year)

into one relation

section(course_id, sec_id, semester, year, building, room_number)

No repetition in this case

Suppose we had started with inst_dept. How would we know to split up (decompose) it into instructor and department?

Write a rule “if there were a schema (dept_name, building, budget), then dept_name would be a candidate key”

Denote as a functional dependency:

dept_namebuilding, budget

In inst_dept, because dept_name is not a candidate key, the building and budget of a department may have to be repeated.

This indicates the need to decompose inst_dept

Not all decompositions are good. Suppose we decomposeemployee(ID, name, street, city, salary) into

employee1 (ID, name)

employee2 (name, street, city, salary)

The next slide shows how we lose information -- we cannot reconstruct the original employee relation -- and so, this is a lossy decomposition.

Lossless join decomposition

Decomposition of R = (A, B, C)R1 = (A, B)R2 = (B, C)

Stages of Normalization

Remove repeating groups

(1NF)

Remove partial dependencies

Second normal form

(2NF)

Remove transitive dependencies

(3NF)

Remove remaining functional

dependency anomalies

Boyce-Codd normal

form (BCNF)

Remove multivalued dependencies

Fourth normal form

(4NF)

Remove remaining anomalies

Fifth normal form

(5NF)

Unnormalized

(UDF)

A repeating group is an attribute (or set of attributes) that can have more than one value for a primary key value.

Example We have the following relation that contains staff and department details and a list of telephone contact numbers for each member of staff.

Repeating Groups are not allowed in a relational design, since all attributes have to be ‘atomic’ - i.e., there can only be one value per cell in a table!

Multivalued Attributes (or repeating groups): non-key attributes or groups of non-key attributes the values of which are not uniquely identified by (directly or indirectly) (not functionally dependent on) the value of the Primary Key (or its part).

STUDENT

Formal Definition: Attribute B is functionally dependant upon attribute A (or a collection of attributes) if a value of A determines a single value of attribute B at any one time.

Example:

Functional Dependencies

staffNo job

staffNo dept

staffNo dname

dept dname

staffNojob dept dname

SL10 Salesman 10 Sales

SA51 Manager 20 Accounts

DS40 Clerk 20 Accounts

OS45 Clerk 30 Operations

Formal Notation: A B This should be read as ‘AdeterminesB’ or ‘B is functionally dependant on A’. A is called the determinant and B is called the object of the determinant.

Full Functional Dependency: Only of relevance with composite determinants. This is the situation when it is necessary to use all the attributes of the composite determinant to identify its object uniquely.

Example:

Full Functional Dependencies

order# line# qty price

A001 001 10 200

A002 001 20 400

A002 002 20 800

A004 001 15 300

(Order#, line#) qty

(Order#, line#) price

Compound Determinants: If more than one attribute is necessary to determine another attribute in an entity, then such a determinant is termed a composite determinant.

Partial Functional Dependency: This is the situation that exists if it is necessary to only use a subset of the attributes of the composite determinant to identify its object uniquely.

Full Functional Dependencies

(student#, unit#) grade

Partial Functional Dependencies

unit# room

Repetition of data!

Partial Dependency – when an non-key attribute is determined by a part, but not the whole, of a COMPOSITE primary key.

Partial Dependency

Definition: A transitive dependency exists when there is an intermediate functional dependency.

Transitive Dependencies

staffNo dept

dept dname

staffNodeptdname

Repetition of data!

Formal Notation: If A B and B C, then it can be stated that the following transitive dependency exists: A B C

Example:

Transitive Dependency – when a non-key attribute determines another non-key attribute.

Transitive Dependency

Unnormalized – There are multivalued attributes or repeating groups

1 NF – No multivalued attributes or repeating groups.

2 NF – 1 NF plus no partial dependencies

3 NF – 2 NF plus no transitive dependencies

Publisher Address

All attributes are directly or indirectly determined by the primary key; therefore, the relation is at least in 1 NF

Publisher Address

The relation is at least in 1NF. There is no COMPOSITE primary key, therefore there can’t be partial dependencies. Therefore, the relation is at least in 2NF

Publisher Address

Publisher is a non-key attribute, and it determines Address, another non-key attribute. Therefore, there is a transitive dependency, which means that the relation is NOT in 3 NF.

We know that the relation is at least in 2NF, and it is not in 3 NF. Therefore, we conclude that the relation is in 2NF.

- In your solution you will write the following justification:
- No M/V attributes, therefore at least 1NF
- No partial dependencies, therefore at least 2NF
- There is a transitive dependency (Publisher Address), therefore, not 3NF
- Conclusion: The relation is in 2NF

Product_ID Description

All attributes are directly or indirectly determined by the primary key; therefore, the relation is at least in 1 NF

Product_ID Description

The relation is at least in 1NF.

There is a COMPOSITE Primary Key (PK) (Order_No, Product_ID), therefore there can be partial dependencies. Product_ID, which is a part of PK, determines Description; hence, there is a partial dependency. Therefore, the relation is not 2NF. No sense to check for transitive dependencies!

Product_ID Description

We know that the relation is at least in 1NF, and it is not in 2 NF. Therefore, we conclude that the relation is in 1 NF.

Product_ID Description

In your solution you will write the following justification:

1) No M/V attributes, therefore at least 1NF

2) There is a partial dependency (Product_ID Description), therefore not in 2NF

Conclusion: The relation is in 1NF
