Special cases of projection

This section describes the identity projection, r {ALL BUT}, and the projection on no attributes, r { }, which yields TABLE_DUM when r is empty, otherwise TABLE_DEE. As we have already seen, the identity projection is represented in SQL by SELECT * FROM t, but SQL does not recognize the existence of column less tables and so SELECT FROM t is not supported.
