4.2.2 Time Normalization Sal-Mgr (Table 4.3) can be decomposed into two relations, Manager (Table 4.4) and Salary (Table 4.5)
4.3.3 Temporal Ordering If there are n breaks for a given TIK value, then the tuples can be viewed as having been partitioned into n+1 groups. If breaks are taken into consideration for temporal ordering, the tuples in each of these groups created by the presence of breaks – are given a unique set of ordinal numbers.
