Tuple-Generating Dependencies Capture Complex Values

Authors: Maximilian Marx and Markus Krötzsch

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 220, 25th International Conference on Database Theory (ICDT 2022)


Abstract
We formalise a variant of Datalog that allows complex values constructed by nesting elements of the input database in sets and tuples. We study its complexity and give a translation into sets of tuple-generating dependencies (TGDs) for which the standard chase terminates on any input database. We identify a fragment for which reasoning is tractable. As membership is undecidable for this fragment, we develop decidable sufficient conditions.

Invited Talk
The Power of the Terminating Chase (Invited Talk)

Authors: Markus Krötzsch, Maximilian Marx, and Sebastian Rudolph

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 127, 22nd International Conference on Database Theory (ICDT 2019)


Abstract
The chase has become a staple of modern database theory with applications in data integration, query optimisation, data exchange, ontology-based query answering, and many other areas. Most application scenarios and implementations require the chase to terminate and produce a finite universal model, and a large arsenal of sufficient termination criteria is available to guarantee this (generally undecidable) condition. In this invited tutorial, we therefore ask about the expressive power of logical theories for which the chase terminates. Specifically, which database properties can be recognised by such theories, i.e., which Boolean queries can they realise? For the skolem (semi-oblivious) chase, and almost any known termination criterion, this expressivity is just that of plain Datalog. Surprisingly, this limitation of most prior research does not apply to the chase in general. Indeed, we show that standard - chase terminating theories can realise queries with data complexities ranging from PTime to non-elementary that are out of reach for the terminating skolem chase. A "Datalog-first" standard chase that prioritises applications of rules without existential quantifiers makes modelling simpler - and we conjecture: computationally more efficient. This is one of the many open questions raised by our insights, and we conclude with an outlook on the research opportunities in this area.

Preserving Constraints with the Stable Chase

Authors: David Carral, Markus Krötzsch, Maximilian Marx, Ana Ozaki, and Sebastian Rudolph

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 98, 21st International Conference on Database Theory (ICDT 2018)


Abstract
Conjunctive query answering over databases with constraints – also known as (tuple-generating) dependencies – is considered a central database task. To this end, several versions of a construction called chase have been described. Given a set Sigma of dependencies, it is interesting to ask which constraints not contained in Sigma that are initially satisfied in a given database instance are preserved when computing a chase over Sigma. Such constraints are an example for the more general class of incidental constraints, which when added to Sigma as new dependencies do not affect certain answers and might even speed up query answering. After formally introducing incidental constraints, we show that deciding incidentality is undecidable for tuple-generating dependencies, even in cases for which query entailment is decidable. For dependency sets with a finite universal model, the core chase can be used to decide incidentality. For the infinite case, we propose the stable chase, which generalises the core chase, and study its relation to incidental constraints.
