Thats the great thing about the relational algebra, its a very useful subset
of SQL, is complete and has a formal mathematical definition.

Infact we can refer to a programming language as relationally complete, if
it provides for the construction of all relations derivable from some set of
base relations by the application of the primitive algebraic operations.
(thanks to Google for that definition).
