This course assumes a college-level knowledge of databases and SQL and seeks the following objectives:
- to introduce students to several fields of current research in database systems
- to provide students with a better understanding of technological advances that are expected to reshape commercial systems in the coming years
Prerequisites: cse255 and cse237, or permission of the instructor.
Advanced Database Systems by Carlo Zaniolo, Stefano Ceri, Christos Faloutsos, Richard T. Snodgrass, V. S. Subrahmanian, Roberto Zicari.
Morgan Kaufmann (May 1997), ISBN # 155860443X
Fundamentals of Database Systems by Elmasri and Navathe,
Third Edition, Addison Wesley, ISBN # 0-8053-1755-4.
In addition to the textbooks, we will also read several research articles, which will be either handed out or provided on-line (in the Handouts section below).
- All students are expected to check the announcements on top of this homepage daily. Any changes to the schedule, or additional explanation for the homeworks will be announced there.
- The textbook needs to be brought to class every time.
- Collaboration: see "homework policy" below.
- The final grade will be computed as follows:
Homework assignments and projects -------- 50% (10, 10, 15, 15)
Midterm exam ------------------------------ 20%
Final exam ---------------------------------- 30%
Discussion of concepts with others is encouraged, but all assignments must be done on your own. If you use any source other than the text, reference it/him/her, whether it be a person, a book, a solution set, a web page or whatever. You MUST write up the solutions in your own words. Copying is strictly forbidden.
Solutions will be graded on the basis of:
correctness (of the whole solution, not just the final answer);
clarity (being able to state your thoughts clearly using proper terminology);
conciseness (do not include unnecessary or irrelevant information).
You are allowed to submit late one homework, which will account for anyone having problems with illness, emergency, etc. No other late homeworks will be accepted.
All handouts that are provided on-line are in this section.
