Separability - an approach to physical data base design
TLDR
A theoretical approach to the optimal design of a large multifile physical databases based on the theory that given a set of join methods that satisfy a certain property called separability, the problem of optimal assignment of access structures to the whole database can be reduced to the subproblem of optimizing individual relations independently of one another.
