- Course objectives
- The aim of this course is to teach students principles of database systems from the perspectives of physical database design, optimization and tuning.
- Data storage: storage hierarchy, efficient use of secondary storage, records, blocks. Searching: index structures, sequential files, trees, hashing, multidimensional indexes.
- Query execution: evaluation plan, algebraic laws, cost estimation, algorithms for operators, sorting and joining relations, query execution and pipelining.
- Query optimization: contribution of indexes, referential integrity, materialized views, table partitioning, disk storage.
- Database optimization: relational schema tuning, index optimization, database monitoring tools.
- Transaction management: properties and their implementation, concurrency control, scheduling, data and index locking, logging and recovery from failures.
- Database security: access rights, data security. Spatial databases: indexes, operators. Analytical tools.
