This is not the case for a nonclustering index. A ﬁle can have at most one clustering index, and in addition can have several nonclustering indexes. Nonclustering indexes are always dense (see below). Indexes can be single-column or multiple-column, depending on the number of indexing ﬁelds on which they are based.
An : Dn ), where the attribute Ai is deﬁned over the domain Di . , a subset of the Cartesian product D1 × D2 × · · · × Dn . The relational model allows several integrity constraints to be deﬁned declaratively. • An attribute may be deﬁned as being not null, meaning that null values (or blanks) are not allowed in that attribute. In Fig. 2, only the attributes marked with a cardinality (0,1) allow null values. , it is not allowed that two diﬀerent tuples of the relation have identical values in such columns.
1. A relation is in the fourth normal form with respect to a set of functional and multivalued dependencies F if, for every nontrivial dependency X →→ Y that can be derived from F , X is a key or contains a key of R. The table above is not in the fourth normal form, since there are multivalued dependencies from Employee no to Research area, and from Employee no to Department id, and Employee no is not a key of the relation. To make the relation comply with the fourth normal form, the attribute Department id must be removed from the table, and an additional table AcademicStaﬀDepart(Employee, Department id) must be added to store the information about the departments in which a member of the academic staﬀ works.
