Regardless of your database experience, Distributed and Multi-Database Systems provides the foundation and understanding necessary for proper design of databases for today's distributed and multi-database architectures. Introductory chapters help novices understand essential topics such as SQL, relational databases, transaction processing, and deadlock detection. Subsequent sections dealing with homogeneous, distributed databases, heterogenous multi-databases, and federated databases apply information discussed in earlier chapters enasbling readers to understand the complexities of distributed database design. Packed with over 200 illustrations, 50 equations, and two full chapters of examples, the book also includes discussions on objefct-oriented databases, which form an integral part of any database.

This third edition of a classic textbook can be used to teach at the senior undergraduate and graduate levels. The material concentrates on fundamental theories as well as techniques and algorithms. The advent of the Internet and the World Wide Web, and, more recently, the emergence of cloud computing and streaming data applications, has forced a renewal of interest in distributed and parallel data management, while, at the same time, requiring a rethinking of some of the traditional techniques. This book covers the breadth and depth of this re-emerging field. The coverage consists of two parts. The first part discusses the fundamental principles of distributed data management and includes distribution design, data integration, distributed query processing and optimization, distributed transaction management, and replication. The second part focuses on more advanced topics and includes discussion of parallel database systems, distributed object management, peer-to-peer data management, web data management, data stream systems, and cloud computing. New in this Edition: • New chapters, covering database replication, database integration, multidatabase query processing, peer-to-peer data management, and web data management. • Coverage of emerging topics such as data streams and cloud computing • Extensive revisions and updates based on years of class testing and feedback Ancillary teaching materials are available.

In order to realize the vision of an information superhighway linking people, ideas, and resources, an essential technological challenge has to be addressed: how to link, integrate, and efficiently utilize thousands of different database systems in a variety of industrial and academic settings. Recent research efforts have focused on how to use state of the art objected-oriented data models to support this multidatabases integration effort. This is the first practical and usable book on the subject. Although the emphasis in Object-Oriented Multidatabase Systems is on the integration of database systems, approaches that integrate other types of distributed systems are also included. The book is unique in its recognition and analysis of the issues involved at all levels of the integration process. Its breadth and depth make it an essential reference for all database and distributed system professionals, researchers, and students.

Since its first volume in 1960, Advances in Computers has presented detailed coverage of innovations in hardware and software and in computer theory, design, and applications. It has also provided contributors with a medium in which they can examine their subjects in greater depth and breadth than that allowed by standard journal articles. As a result, many articles have become standard references that continue to be of significant, lasting value despite the rapid growth taking place in the field.

Database management is attracting wide interest in both academic and industrial contexts. New application areas such as CAD/CAM, geographic information systems, and multimedia are emerging. The needs of these application areas are far more complex than those of conventional business applications. The purpose of this book is to bring together a set of current research issues that addresses a broad spectrum of topics related to database systems and applications. The book is divided into four parts: - object-oriented databases, - temporal/historical database systems, - query processing in database systems, - heterogeneity, interoperability, open system architectures, multimedia database systems.

Focusing on a data-centric perspective, this book provides a complete overview of data mining: its uses, methods, current technologies, commercial products, and future challenges. Three parts divide Data Mining: Part I describes technologies for data mining - database systems, warehousing, machine learning, visualization, decision support, statistics, parallel processing, and architectural support for data mining Part II presents tools and techniques - getting the data ready, carrying out the mining, pruning the results, evaluating outcomes, defining specific approaches, examining a specific technique based on logic programming, and citing literature and vendors for up-to-date information Part III examines emerging trends - mining distributed and heterogeneous data sources; multimedia data, such as text, images, video; mining data on the World Wide Web; metadata aspects of mining; and privacy issues. This self-contained book also contains two appendices providing exceptional information on technologies, such as data management, and artificial intelligence. Is there a need for mining? Do you have the right tools? Do you have the people to do the work? Do you have sufficient funds allocated to the project? All these answers must be answered before embarking on a project. Data Mining provides singular guidance on appropriate applications for specific techniques as well as thoroughly assesses valuable product information.

Knowledge Discovery today is a significant study and research area. In finding answers to many research questions in this area, the ultimate hope is that knowledge can be extracted from various forms of data around us. This book covers recent advances in unsupervised and supervised data analysis methods in Computational Intelligence for knowledge discovery. In its first part the book provides a collection of recent research on distributed clustering, self organizing maps and their recent extensions. If labeled data or data with known associations are available, we may be able to use supervised data analysis methods, such as classifying neural networks, fuzzy rule-based classifiers, and decision trees. Therefore this book presents a collection of important methods of supervised data analysis. "Classification and Clustering for Knowledge Discovery" also includes variety of applications of knowledge discovery in health, safety, commerce, mechatronics, sensor networks, and telecommunications.
