C. Mancaş (Romania) and S. Dragomir (New Zealand)


Conceptual data modeling, database design algorithms


The paper introduces the notions of relationship and struc tural key in the framework of the Elementary Mathemati cal Data Model. Based on a structural keys characteriza tion theorem, an optimal, sound, and complete algorithm for their design is then provided and discussed.
