Parallel and Distributed Database Systems
M. Tamer Özsu
Lecture times: Thursdays 1:30-4:20PM
Lecture location: DC 2568
This course covers algorithms and architectures used in parallel and distributed database management systems. The focus is on relational systems, but the problems addressed in this course arise in all large-scale database systems.
Principles of Distributed Database Systems, 3rd edition, M. Tamer Özsu and Patrick Valduriez, Springer, 2011.
