Data exchange with arithmetic operations

Balder ten Cate, Phokion G. Kolaitis, Walied Othman
2013 Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Extending Database Technology - EDBT '13  
We show that, for arithmetic schema mappings without target dependencies, the existence-of-solutions problem can be solved in polynomial time, and, if a solution exists, then a universal solution (suitably  ...  We initiate the study of data exchange for arithmetic schema mappings, that is, schema mappings specified by source-totarget dependencies and target dependencies that may include arithmetic formulas interpreted  ...  We thank Nimrod Megiddo and Marcus Schaefer for helpful discussions and pointers.

The LLUNATIC data-cleaning framework

Floris Geerts, Giansalvatore Mecca, Paolo Papotti, Donatello Santoro
2013 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
In this paper we develop a uniform framework to solve this problem. We propose a new semantics for repairs, and a chase-based algorithm to compute minimal solutions.  ...  As a consequence, there is currently no general algorithm to solve database repairing problems that involve different kinds of constraints and different strategies to select preferred values.  ...  Rep Rep f,f = 25K → {t4.SALARY, We next show that the chase procedure always generates solutions, i.e., it is sound, and it terminates after a finite number of steps.  ...

Automatic schema merging using mapping constraints among incomplete sources

Xiang Li, Christoph Quix, David Kensche, Sandra Geisler
2010 Proceedings of the 19th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '10  
In this paper, we present a novel approach for merging multiple relational data sources related by a collection of mapping constraints in the form of P2P style tuple-generating dependencies (tgds).  ...  In the scenario of data integration, we opt for minimal mediated schemas that are complete regarding certain answers of conjunctive queries.  ...  Acknowledgements: The authors are grateful to the anonymous referees for comments helping to improve the paper.  ...

Updates of Relational Views

Stavros S. Cosmadakis, Christos H. Papadimitriou
1984 Journal of the ACM  
The problem of translating the insertion of a tuple into a view is then studied in detail, and the results are extended to the cases of deletion and replacement of a tuple.  ...  Projective views of databases that consist of a single relation and satisfy funcuonal dependencies are emphasized.  ...  Recall that the chase procedure consists in repeatedly locating a pair of tuples ~, v such that ~[Z] ~-v[Z] and ~[A] # viA] for some FD Z ---, A in 2;, and replacing the element t,[A] with viA] throughout  ...

Conceptual Graph Rules and Equivalent Rules: A Synthesis [chapter]

Marie-Laure Mugnier
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We focus here on conceptual graph rules and on the semantically equivalent knowledge constructs in logic and databases, namely rules with existential variables and tuple-generating dependencies.  ...  The aim of this presentation is to synthesize main decidability, complexity and algorithmic results obtained on this kind of rules.  ...  A ∀∃-rule has the same form as a very general kind of dependency studied in databases called tuple-generating dependency (TGD) [AHV95] .  ...

Query Processing in Data Integration

Data exchange

2003 Proceedings of the twenty-second ACM SIGMOD-SIGACT-SIGART symposium on Principles of database systems - PODS '03  
A universal solution has homomorphisms into every possible solution, and hence is a "most general possible" solution. Nonetheless, given a source instance, there may be many universal solutions.  ...  Earlier results imply that this problem is both NP-hard and coNP-hard. Here, we pinpoint its exact complexity by establishing that it is a DP-complete problem.  ...  Miller, Arnon Rosenthal, Wang-Chiew Tan, Val Tannen, and Moshe Y.

Restricted Chase Termination for Existential Rules: a Hierarchical Approach and Experimentation [article]

Arash Karimi, Heng Zhang, Jia-Huai You
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The chase procedure for existential rules is an indispensable tool for several database applications, where its termination guarantees the decidability of these tasks.  ...  More generally, we show that the approach can be applied to the hierarchy of bounded rule sets previously only defined for the skolem chase.  ...  Furthermore, if R consists of rules with singlehead, then MembCheck(R, δ) is sound and complete.  ...
