Abstract functional dependency structures. (English) Zbl 0727.68028
The functional dependency (FD) is represented in a matroid like manner. It is shown that this framework covers many important particular cases, including FD-relations in a database. A Galois connection of the FD- relations with closure systems is elaborated.
