As a person learning calculus, I always get frustrated by considering the practical applications of it. In an interview Larry Ellison said this about relational database programming:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Relational database technology was invented by a guy by the name of Ted Codd at IBM. It's based on relational algebra and relational calculus. It is a very mathematically rigorous form of data management that we can prove mathematically to be functionally complete."

Could someone possibly explain or direct me towards where I can find out precisely how databases can be linked to calculus/maths?

Any input is much appreciated.

Thanks
