    I wish to know in simple English (Because my knowledge on the subject is poor), on an understanding of Normalization (functional dependencies), that occur within a database.

    I wish to know the following:

    an brief introduction to what it is.
    A small amount of features that are used in order to full fill it's job.
    and some advantages & disadvantages from using functional dependencies.

    In case you are wondering this is for a college assignment, I've been up for about 28 hours and I haven't been able to write more than:

    "A functional dependency is a link between two sets of attributes in a relation, we can normalize a relation by removing undesirable functional dependencies."

    I'm even unsure as to if this is even correct or not, thank you for your kind responses(if any).

    Kai
