by Neeraj Sharma, at al. - IBM Corporation , 2010
This free e-book teaches you the fundamentals of databases, including relational database theory, logical and physical database design, and the SQL language. Advanced topics include using functions, stored procedures and XML.
Multi-Relational Data Mining
by Arno Jan Knobbe - IOS Press , 2006
This thesis is concerned with Data Mining: extracting useful insights from large collections of data. With the increased possibilities in modern society for companies and institutions to gather data, this subject has become of increasing importance.
Natural Language Interfaces to Databases: An Introduction
by I. Androutsopoulos, G. D. Ritchie, P. Thanisch - arXiv , 1995
This paper is an introduction to natural language interfaces to databases (NLIDBs). Some advantages and disadvantages of NLIDBs are then discussed, comparing NLIDBs to formal query languages, form-based interfaces, and graphical interfaces.
Readings in Database Systems
by J. M. Hellerstein, M. Stonebraker - UC Berkeley , 1999

Database Systems and Structures
by Osmar R. Zaiane - Simon Fraser University , 1998
An introduction to data models, database systems, the structure and use of relational database systems and relational languages, indexing and storage management, query processing in relational databases, and the theory of relational database design.
Data Mining Desktop Survival Guide
by Graham Williams - Togaware Pty Ltd , 2004
Data mining is about building models from data. We build models to gain insights into the world and how the world works. A data miner, in building models, deploys many different data analysis and model building techniques.
Introduction to Metadata
by Tony Gill, at al. - Getty Publications , 2008
This book provides an overview of metadata, its types, roles, and characteristics; a discussion of metadata as it relates to resources on the Web; a description of methods, tools, standards, and protocols used to publish digital collections; etc.
