eBook Description:

Database System Concepts, 6th Edition

Now in its Database System Concepts, 6th Edition, Silberschatz, Korth, and Sudarshan’s Database System Concepts, 6th Edition is one of the cornerstone texts of database concept education. It presents the fundamental concepts of database management in an intuitive manner geared toward allowing students to begin working with databases as quickly as possible. The text emphasizes practical issues, applications, and implementation, coupled with coverage of key theoretical concepts in a clear and well motivated manner. To keep the focus manageable, concepts and algorithms are presented in a general setting that is not tied to one particular database system, but annotated where required with variations specific to particular database systems. Familiarity with basic data structures, computer organization, and a high-level programming language are the only prerequisites.

The text is designed for a first course in databases at the junior/senior undergraduate level or the first year graduate level. It also contains additional material that can be used as supplements or as introductory material for an advanced course. Because the authors present concepts as intuitive descriptions, a familiarity with basic data structures, computer organization, and a high-level programming language are the only prerequisites. Important theoretical results are covered, but formal proofs are omitted. In place of proofs, figures and examples are used to suggest why a result is true.
