Summary:
Although the Relational Algebra (RA) is a fundamental component of the relational model of database storage and retrieval, it has not been widely implemented in commercial database systems. The Structured Query Language (SQL) has been for some time the most widely implemented relational database language. This thesis provides and describes the first implementation of a particularly powerful version of the relational algebra that includes an n-ary join operator as well as including the division operator, and nested expressions. With this implementation, that powerful version of the relational algebra can be used as a front end to any SQL-92 compliant database management system, such as Oracle, Informix, DB2, Sybase, SQL Server, and Access.
