I ve already addressed some of the ways in which mathematics fails to represent the world precisely, but one generalization of set theory is particularly relevant to databases.

Of course, a set S of numbers can t contain three twos. It can either contain a two or not contain a two. If it contains a two, 1S(2) = 1. If it doesn t, 1S(2) = 0, and nothing else is possible. It s possible to accommodate the idea of multiple membership in set theory, except that it would no longer be set theory, it would be multiset theory, sometimes known as the theory of bags. The simplest way to begin developing a theory of multisets is by generalizing the characteristic function.

For example, the multiplicity function of an intersection can be taken to be the minimum of the multiplicity functions. Other notions are far more problematic. It s not clear how to de ne a multiset s complement, for example. Should universal sets contain an unlimited number of each of their elements, and should the complement of any nite multiset be in nite Because set cardinalities have more than one size of in nity, which size should be used for multisets The problems with multiset theory often lead database theoreticians to outlaw duplicate rows within a table for example, by requiring primary key constraints. It s harder to prevent result sets from containing duplicates, however. This would require changing the meaning of SELECT to what is now written as SELECT DISTINCT, and this would create other complications, particularly with aggregates.

in most places but not everywhere. TSQL, for example, doesn t support EXCEPT ALL and INTERSECT ALL, only EXCEPT DISTINCT and INTERSECT DISTINCT. Predicate Logic
Predicate logic is a mathematical framework for representing and manipulating expressions that are true or false: facts and falsehoods. LogicLike Features of Programming Languages
TSQL, like many programming languages, incorporates truefalse expressions and logical operators in several places, not all of which are, strictly speaking, related to predicate logic. Note A truefalse expression is called a Boolean expression (after the logician George Boole). Boolean logic begins with the study of Boolean expressions.
The Keyword IF in ControlofFlow Statements
Although the focus of this book is on TSQL s query language, and SQL s central (or at least most interesting) paradigm is set based, regular programming based on decision and repetition is also implemented. For example, many of this book s code samples begin with a conditional statement to delete an object if it already exists. You encountered this statement in 1, Logical Query Processing : IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.Orders') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE dbo.Orders; This is a valid TSQL statement, and it conforms to the syntax SQL Server Books Online gives for an IF. . .ELSE statement: IF Boolean_expression { sql_statement  statement_block } [ELSE { sql_statement  statement_block } ] The Boolean expression is OBJECT_ID( dbo.Orders ) IS NOT NULL, and the sql_statement is DROP TABLE dbo.Orders. The way in which a program implements decision making or repetition is often referred to as the program s logic. Formal logic, however, isn t about what happens when a program runs, nor is it about the way in which programs implement algorithms to solve problems. In particular, the expression if <this> then <that> in formal logic bears nothing more than a super cial resemblance to the statement IF <this> THEN <that> in a programming language. The former is a sentence that in its entirety is either true or false; the latter is an instruction to produce behavior that depends on whether <this> (not the entire statement) is true or false.
