We propose a class of constraints, referred to as conditional functional dependencies (CFDs), and study their applications in data cleaning. In contrast to traditional functional dependencies (FDs) that were developed mainly for schema design, CFDs aim at capturing the consistency of data by incorporating bindings of semantic ally related values. For CFDs we provide an inference system analogous to Armstrong's axioms for FDs, as well as consistency analysis. Since CFDs allow data bindings, a… CONTINUE READING
