English abstract:
Conjunctive queries (CQs) are one of the most fundamental forms of database queries. In general, the evaluation of CQs is NP-complete. Consequently, there has been an intensive search for tractable
fragments. In this paper, we want to initiate a systematic search for
tractable fragments of the counting problem of CQs, i.e., the problem
of counting the answers to a CQ. We prove several new tractability and
intractability results by starting with acyclic conjunctive queries and generalising these results to CQs of bounded hypertree-width.
