Query-Answer Causality in Databases: Abductive Diagnosis and View-Updates

13 Jun 2015  ·  Babak Salimi, Leopoldo Bertossi ·

Causality has been recently introduced in databases, to model, characterize and possibly compute causes for query results (answers). Connections between query causality and consistency-based diagnosis and database repairs (wrt. integrity constrain violations) have been established in the literature. In this work we establish connections between query causality and abductive diagnosis and the view-update problem. The unveiled relationships allow us to obtain new complexity results for query causality -the main focus of our work- and also for the two other areas.
