1. Chapter 6: Formal Relational Query Languages • Relational Algebra basics

2. ER for Banking Enterprise

3. Schema Diagram for the Banking Enterprise

4. Query Languages • Categories of languages • procedural • non-procedural • “Pure” languages: • Relational Algebra • Tuple Relational Calculus • Domain Relational Calculus • Declarative languages: • SQL

5. Relational Algebra • Procedural language • Six basic operators • Select  • Projection  • Union  • set difference – • Cartesian product x • Rename  • The operators take one or more relations as inputs and give a new relation as a result.

6. Select Operation – Example A B C D • Relation r         1 5 12 23 7 7 3 10 • A=B ^ D > 5(r) A B C D     1 23 7 10

7. Select Operation • Notation: p(r) • p is called the selection predicate • Defined as: p(r) = {t | t  rand p(t)} Where p is a formula in propositional calculus consisting of terms connected by :  (and),  (or),  (not)Each term is one of: <attribute>op <attribute> or <constant> where op is one of: =, , >, . <. 

8. Example of selection • branch-name=“Perryridge”(account) • Selection gives a horizontal subset of a relation • a subset of all the tuples (rows) of a relation account • branch-name=“Perryridge”(account) ? ?

9. Project Operation – Example • Relation r: A B C     10 20 30 40 1 1 1 2 A C A C • A,C (r)     1 1 1 2    1 1 2 =

10. Project Operation • Notation:A1, A2, …, Ak (r) where A1, A2 are attribute names and r is a relation name. • The result is defined as the relation of k columns obtained by erasing the columns that are not listed • Duplicate rows removed from result, since relations are sets

11. Example of Projection • To eliminate the branch-name attribute of accountaccount-number, balance (account) • Projection gives a vertical subset of a relation • a subset of all the columns of a relation account account-number, balance (account) ?

12. Union Operation – Example A B A B • Relations r, s:    1 2 1   2 3 s r r  s: A B     1 2 1 3

13. Union Operation • Notation: r s • Defined as: r s = {t | t  r or t  s} • For r s to be valid. • r,s must have the same arity (same number of attributes) • The attribute domains must be compatible (e.g., 2nd column of r deals with the same type of values as does the 2nd column of s)

14. Example of Union • Find all customers with either an account or a loancustomer-name (depositor)  customer-name (borrower) depositor customer-name (depositor) ?  ? customer-name (borrower) borrower ?

15. Set Difference Operation – Example A B A B • Relations r, s:    1 2 1   2 3 s r r – s: A B   1 1

16. Set Difference Operation • Notation r – s • Defined as: r – s = {t | t rand t  s} • Set differences must be taken between compatible relations. • r and s must have the same arity • attribute domains of r and s must be compatible

17. Example of Set Difference • Find all customers with either an account or a loancustomer-name (depositor)  customer-name (borrower) depositor customer-name (depositor) ? - ? customer-name (borrower) borrower ?

18. Cartesian-Product Operation-Example A B C D E Relations r, s:   1 2     10 10 20 10 a a b b r s r xs: A B C D E         1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2         10 10 20 10 10 10 20 10 a a b b a a b b

19. Cartesian-Product Operation • Notation r x s • Defined as: r x s = {t q | t  r and q  s} • Assume that attributes of r(R) and s(S) are disjoint. (That is, R  S = ). • If attributes of r(R) and s(S) are not disjoint, then renaming must be used.

21. the loan relation

22. Result of borrower |X| loan

23. Cartesian-Product Operation • Cartesian-Product itself is usually not so useful • It is often used as a “pre-processing” • Other operators such as selection and projection will follow

24. Composition of Operations • Can build expressions using multiple operations • Example: A=C(r x s) • r x s • A=C(r x s) A B C D E         1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2         10 10 20 10 10 10 20 10 a a b b a a b b A B C D E       10 20 20 a a b 1 2 2

25. Rename Operation • Allows us to refer to a relation by more than one name. • Example: x (E) returns the expression E under the name X • If a relational-algebra expression E has arity n, then • x(A1, A2, …, An)(E) returns the result of expression E under the name X, and with the attributes renamed to A1, A2, …., An.

26. Rename Operation • Example: downtown-account(account-number,branch-name,balance) (branch-name=“Downtown”(account) account ?

27. Banking Example branch (branch-name, branch-city, assets) customer (customer-name, customer-street, customer-only) account (account-number, branch-name, balance) loan (loan-number, branch-name, amount) depositor (customer-name, account-number) borrower (customer-name, loan-number)

28. Example Queries • Find all loans of over \$1200 amount> 1200 (loan) • Find the loan number for each loan of an amount greater than \$1200 loan-number (amount> 1200 (loan))

29. Example Queries • Find the names of all customers who have a loan, an account, or both, from the bank customer-name (borrower)  customer-name (depositor) • Find the names of all customers who have a loan and an account at bank. customer-name (borrower)  customer-name (depositor)

30. Example Queries • Find the names of all customers who have a loan at the Perryridge branch. customer-name (branch-name=“Perryridge” (borrower.loan-number = loan.loan-number(borrower x loan))) • Find the names of all customers who have a loan at the Perryridge branch but do not have an account at any branch of the bank. customer-name (branch-name = “Perryridge” (borrower.loan-number = loan.loan-number(borrower x loan))) – customer-name(depositor)

31. Example Queries • Find the names of all customers who have a loan at the Perryridge branch. • Query 1customer-name(branch-name = “Perryridge”( borrower.loan-number = loan.loan-number(borrower x loan)))  Query 2 customer-name(loan.loan-number = borrower.loan-number( (branch-name = “Perryridge”(loan)) x borrower))

32. Example Queries Find the largest account balance • Rename account relation as d • The query is: balance(account) - account.balance (account.balance < d.balance(account x rd (account)))
