In perform, and for plenty of purposes, a database would possibly not fulfill these integrity constraints, and therefore it's stated to be inconsistent. in spite of the fact that, and probably, a wide section of the database continues to be semantically right, in a feeling that should be made certain. After having supplied a proper characterization of constant information in an inconsistent database, the traditional challenge emerges of extracting that semantically right information, as question solutions. The constant facts in an inconsistent database is generally characterised because the facts that persists throughout the entire database cases which are constant and minimally range from the inconsistent example. these are the so-called maintenance of the database. particularly, the constant solutions to a question posed to the inconsistent database are these solutions that may be at the same time acquired from the entire database maintenance. As anticipated, the proposal of fix calls for an sufficient thought of distance that enables for the comparability of databases with recognize to how a lot they vary from the inconsistent example. in this foundation, the minimality situation on upkeep might be effectively formulated. during this monograph we current and talk about those primary strategies, varied fix semantics, algorithms for computing constant solutions to queries, and in addition complexity-theoretic effects relating to the computation of upkeep and doing constant question answering. desk of Contents: creation / The Notions of fix and constant solution / Tractable CQA and question Rewriting / Logically Specifying maintenance / determination difficulties in CQA: Complexity and Algorithms / upkeep and knowledge cleansing
