Abstract

In the context of CASE tool development for relational database design, this thesis develops a methodology that maps an enhanced Entity-Relationship (ER) schema into a relational schema and normalizes the latter into inclusion normal form (IN-NF). Unlike classical normalization that characterizes individual relations only, IN-NF also concerns inter-relational redundancies. The thesis precisely characterizes sources of redundancy in ER schemas and enhances several existing proposals from the literature. The thesis presents a Prolog implementation of the methodology.
