Lecture 03 Relational Database Design Normalization

3
Outline Overview of Relational DBMS Normalization(1 st lecture)

4
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 Slide 4 Normalization

5
Repetition 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 ENO EMP ENAMETITLESAL J. DoeElect. Eng M. Smith34000 M. Smith Analyst A. LeeMech. Eng A. LeeMech. Eng J.

Update Anomaly If any attribute of project (say SAL of an employee) is updated, multiple tuples have to be updated to reflect the change. ENO EMP ENAMETITLESAL J. DoeElect. Eng M. Smith34000 M.

Deletion Anomaly 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. ENO EMP ENAMETITLESAL J. DoeElect. Eng M. Smith34000 M. Smith Analyst A. LeeMech. Eng A. LeeMech. Eng J. MillerProgrammer24000 B. CaseySyst. Anal L. ChuElect. Eng R.

What to do? Take each relation individually and “improve” it in terms of the desired characteristics Normal forms o Atomic values (1NF) o Can be defined according to keys and dependencies. o Functional Dependencies ( 2NF, 3NF, BCNF) o Multivalued dependencies (4NF) Normalization o Normalization is a process of concept separation which applies a top-down methodology for producing a schema by subsequent refinements and decompositions. o Do not combine unrelated sets of facts in one table; each relation should contain an independent set of facts. o Universal relation assumption

10
Normalization Issues 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.

11
A Combined Schema Without Repetition 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

12
What About Smaller Schemas? 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_name building, 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 decompose employee(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.

Example of Lossless-Join Decomposition Lossless join decomposition Decomposition of R = (A, B, C) R 1 = (A, B)R 2 = (B, C) AB 1212 A B 1212 r B,C (r) A (r) B (r) AB 1212 C ABAB B 1212 C ABAB C ABAB A,B (r)

Unnormalized (UDF) First normal form (1NF) Remove repeating groups Second normal form (2NF) Remove partial dependencies Third normal form (3NF) Remove transitive dependencies Boyce-Codd normal form (BCNF) Remove remaining functional dependency anomalies Fourth normal form (4NF) Remove multivalued dependencies Fifth normal form (5NF) Remove remaining anomalies Stages of Normalization

16
Repeating Groups A repeating group is an attribute (or set of attributes) that can have more than one value for a primary key value. staffNojobdeptdnamecity contact Number SL10Salesman10SalesStratford , , SA51Manager20AccountsBarking DS40Clerk20AccountsBarkingNull OS45Clerk30OperationsBarking 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!

17
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).

18
Functional Dependency 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. Formal Notation: A B This should be read as ‘A determines B’ or ‘B is functionally dependant on A’. A is called the determinant and B is called the object of the determinant. staffNo job dept dname SL10 Salesman 10 Sales SA51 Manager 20 Accounts DS40 Clerk 20 Accounts OS45 Clerk 30 Operations Example: staffNo job staffNo dept staffNo dname dept dname Functional Dependencies

19
Functional Dependency 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. order# line# qty price A A A A Example: (Order#, line#) qty (Order#, line#) price Full Functional Dependencies 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.

20
Functional Dependency 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.

21
Partial Dependency – when an non-key attribute is determined by a part, but not the whole, of a COMPOSITE primary key. Partial Dependency Functional Dependency

22
Transitive Dependency Definition: A transitive dependency exists when there is an intermediate functional dependency. Formal Notation: If A B and B C, then it can be stated that the following transitive dependency exists: A B C staffNo dept dept dname staffNo dept dname Transitive Dependencies Repetition of data! staffNo jobdeptdname SL10Salesman10Sales SA51Manager20Accounts DS40Clerk20Accounts OS45Clerk30Operations Example:

24
Normal Forms: Review 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

25
Example 1: Determine NF ISBN Title ISBN Publisher Publisher Address All attributes are directly or indirectly determined by the primary key; therefore, the relation is at least in 1 NF

26
Example 1: Determine NF ISBN Title ISBN Publisher 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

27
Example 1: Determine NF ISBN Title ISBN Publisher 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.

28
Example 1: Determine NF ISBN Title ISBN Publisher Publisher Address 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.

29
Example 1: Determine NF ISBN Title ISBN Publisher Publisher Address In your solution you will write the following justification: 1) No M/V attributes, therefore at least 1NF 2) No partial dependencies, therefore at least 2NF 3) There is a transitive dependency (Publisher Address), therefore, not 3NF Conclusion: The relation is in 2NF

30
Product_ID Description Example 2: Determine NF All attributes are directly or indirectly determined by the primary key; therefore, the relation is at least in 1 NF

31
Product_ID Description Example 2: Determine NF 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!

32
Product_ID Description Example 2: Determine NF 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.

33
Product_ID Description Example 2: Determine NF 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
