Database System Concepts presents the fundamental concepts of database management in an intuitive manner geared toward allowing students to begin working with databases as quickly as possible. A familiarity with basic data structures, computer organization, and a high-level programming language are the only prerequisites. Important theoretical results are covered, but formal proofs are omitted. In place of proofs, figures and examples are used to suggest why a result is true.
