Causes for Query Answers from Databases, Datalog Abduction and View-Updates: The Presence of Integrity Constraints

20 Feb 2016  ·  Babak Salimi, Leopoldo Bertossi ·

Causality has been recently introduced in databases, to model, characterize and possibly compute causes for query results (answers). Connections between queryanswer causality, consistency-based diagnosis, database repairs (wrt. integrity constraint violations), abductive diagnosis and the view-update problem have been established. In this work we further investigate connections between query-answer causality and abductive diagnosis and the view-update problem. In this context, we also define and investigate the notion of query-answer causality in the presence of integrity constraints.
