- Semantic foundations of 4NF in relational database design. Vincent, Millist W. // Acta Informatica;1999, Vol. 36 Issue 3, p173
Abstract. The issue of providing a formal justification for the use of fourth normal form (4NF) in relational database design is investigated. The motivation and formal definitions for three goals of database design are presented. These goals are the elimination of: redundancy, key-based update...
