Consider the following relation for published books:
BOOK (Book_title, Authorname, Book_type, Listprice, Author_affil, Publisher)
Author_affil refers to the affiliation of the author. Suppose the following dependencies exist:
Book_title → Publisher, Book_type
Book_type → Listprice
Author_name → Author-affil
(a) What normal form is the relation in? Explain your answer.
(b) Apply normalization until you cannot decompose the relations further. State the reasons behind each decomposition.
The question belongs to Computer Science and it is about finding out the normal form for a relational dependency. This has been discussed in the solution.
