The exact implementation of an index is specific to the DBMS you are using so you can’t make any assumptions about exactly how they are stored or how they work. However, you don’t need to understand how an index is implemented to use it. Conceptually you can think of an index as a look-up table, where you find rows in the index with a specific piece of data in one column, and the index then tells you the rows in the indexed table that match that data. To return to the phone book example, an index could be used to search for records via the phone number column instead of the name column.

Functions Any good DBMS supplies you with an extensive set of functions to use to view and manipulate data. You are likely to find mathematical functions, conversion functions, string manipulation functions, date and time manipulation functions, and so on. These enable you to perform much of your data processing inside the DBMS, reducing the amount of data that needs to be transferred to and from your applications, and improving efficiency. DBMS functions can take several forms. There are scalar functions that return single values, table valued functions that can return multiple rows of data, and aggregate functions that work with entire data sets rather than individual values.
