In a table, if attribute B is functionally dependent on A, but is not functionally dependent on a proper subset of A, then B is considered fully functional dependent on A. Hence, in a 2NF table, all non-key attributes cannot be dependent on a subset of the primary key.
How are these addressed? By the third normal form. 3NF – Third Normal Form Definition. A table is in third normal form if: A table is in 2nd normal form. It contains only columns that are non-transitively dependent on the primary key; Wow! That’s a mouthful. What does non-transitively dependent mean? Let’s break it down.
and join dependencies. ETNF lies strictly between fourth normal form and fth normal form (5NF, also known as projection-join normal form). We show that ETNF, al-though strictly weaker than 5NF, is exactly as e ective as 5NF in eliminating redundancy of tuples. Our de nition of ETNF is semantic, in that it is de ned in terms of tuple redundancy.
Unnormalized form (UNF), sometimes also known as an unnormalized relation or non first normal form (NF 2). It is generally characterized as being a simple database data model (organization of data in a database) lacking the efficiency of database normalization.
