(taught in English)

10 points, Periods 3 & 4, Fall 1999



  1. The main objective of this continuation course is to make students familiar with some advanced fundamental principles and techniques of database management systems.  This means that the lectures themselves have a slightly theoretical flavour, as they discuss no particular systems: once the fundamental principles and techniques are understood, the usage of particular systems is easy, whereas the study of any such particular systems would not prepare the student for the usage of other systems or of the better ones that are bound to emerge.
  2. Some practice of these advanced aspects of database management systems is acquired through lessons and laboratories.
