Hello all,

Here are some additional references if you are interested in digging
into relational algebra:

Fundamentals of Database Systems (4th or 5th Edition)
Ramez Elmasri and Shamkant B. Navathe
Addison Wesley

Chapter 2 of "The Theory of Relational Databases" by Dave Maier (out
of print, find it here:
MAIER/C02.pdf )

Even thou James does not like it as much, the cow book is still a
very good reference:

Database Management Systems (3rd Edition is ubiquitous)
Raghu Ramakrishnan and Johannes Gehrke
McGraw Hill

And of course, Codd's paper, available here (requires ACM account):
