dc.description.abstract This thesis takes a first step towards the design and normalization theory for XML database. As relational databases, an XML database may contain redundancies; consequently, the redundancies may result in data inconsistency and storage waste. The redundancies are caused by functional depe ndencies among the subtrees in an XML tree. The goal of this work is to find an approach to convert an arbitrary DTD into a redundancy-free DTD, so that avoids those problems. In order to achieve the goal, firstly, a data model, an unordered tree, is proposed for an XML database. Secondly, the functional dependency is defined based on the data model. The implication of functional dependencies is discussed, too. Then a normal fo rm, together with a justification for it, is presented. Finally, an al gorithm for converting a given DTD into the normal form is stated.
