INCONSISTENCY-TOLERANT ELIMINATIONS OF INTEGRITY VIOLATIONS

Hendrik Decker

Abstract

Violated integrity constraints should be repaired by eliminating the violations. However, it may be unfeasible to eliminate all violations. We show that it is possible to eliminate some but not necessarily all violations, i.e., to tolerate remaining inconsistencies, while preserving the consistent parts of the database.
