Classification of Indexes
An index is a tree structure that allows direct access to a row in a table. Indexes can be classified based on their logical design or on their physical implementation. The logical classification groups indexes from an application perspective, while the physical classification is derived from the way the indexes are stored.
Single column and concatenated indexes
A single column index has only one column in the index key—for example, an index on the employees number column of an employees table.
In Oracle8 we saw the addition of bitmap indexes, function-based indexes, as well as reverse key indexes and star index structures. We also saw the Oracle SQL optimizer becoming more intelligent about the way indexes are used by SQL statements. In Oracle9i, we have the index skip scan, the and_equal hint to combine individual indexes into a contaminated index, as well as specialized bitmap access methods to improve the speed of data warehouse queries.

This dissertation addresses how the weather derivative hedges
the corporate risk, how to price the indexed derivative as an exotic
derivative instrument, and the implications of basis risk. These topics
are summarized in an expanded uncertainty model. Under this
framework, different hedging instruments for studying the optimal
hedging portfolios are compared.

Modern medicine is characterized by the continuously growing
spectrum of improving diagnostic methods and therapeutic processes.
It keeps getting more complicated and confusing and therefore
also needs more order.
The main goal of medical documentation is to provide information
for the adequate care of patients. Carefully carried out written
records like a patient history, physician indexes, or, more recently,
patient databases serve to reach this goal.

Spatial database management deals with the storage, indexing, and querying of data with spatial
features, such as location and geometric extent. The field emerged from Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) applications, from which it became apparent
that there is a need for the efficient management of large-scale spatial data. More recently, Location
Based Services (LBS) brought spatial data management needs to common users, who routinely run
spatial queries on their computers or mobile devices.
Storing User Data
There are several methods of storing user data in an Oracle database:
Note: Partitioned tables, index-organized tables, and clustered tables are covered in other courses.
A regular table (generally referred to as a “table”) is the most commonly used form of storing user data. This is the default table and is the main focus of this lesson. A database administrator has very limited control over the distribution of rows in a table.
After completing this lesson, you should be able to do the following:
Explain the role of the DBA in tuning applications
Move tables using the ALTER TABLE command
Redefine a table online
Create different types of indexes
Build and manage index-organized tables
Explain and plan OLTP, DSS, and hybrid systems

In the mid-1990’s catastrophe bonds (CAT bonds), also named as Act of God or
Insurance-linked bond, were developed to ease the transfer of catastrophe based
insurance risk from insurers, reinsurers and corporations (sponsors) to capital
market investors. CAT bonds are bonds whose coupons and principal payments
depend on the performance of a pool or index of natural catastrophe risks, or
on the presence of speciﬁed trigger conditions.

Chapter 8 introduced the Markowitz portfolio selection model, which shows how to obtain the maximum return possible for any level of portfolio risk. This chapter a simplifying assumption that at once eases our computational burden and offers significant new insights into the nature of systematic risk versus firm-specific risk. This abstraction is the notion of an “index model,” specifying the process by which security returns are generated.
Corporate financial managers continually invest funds in assets, and these assets produce income and cash flows that the firm can then either reinvest in more assets or distribute to the owners
of the firm. Capital investment refers to the firm’s investment in assets, and these investments may be either short term or long term in nature. Capital budgeting decisions involve the long-term commitment
of a firm’s scarce resources in capital investments. When such a decision is made, the firm is committed to a current and possibly future outlay of funds....
