We revisit the issue of the complexity of database queries, in the light of the recent parametric refinement of com- plexity theory. We show that, if the query size (or the number of variables in the query) is considered as a parameter, then the relational calculus and its frag- ments (conjunctive queries, positive queries) are classi- fi...More
