I am quite sure that the term you are looking for is derived relation.
In relational jargon, a single and normalized table is called a base relation (or base table). It can be said that this category of relations are the “concrete” tables that are stored in a RDBMS.
The fact of applying relational operations (such as
JOIN, for instance) on these base relations (or base tables), yields a different type of relation, and that is what is known as derived relation (or derived table). It may be useful to think of this kind of relations as “abstract” (or “virtual”, as you properly stated) tables that arise as a result of “playing” with the aforementioned “concrete” ones. In order to get practical advantages, a derived relation (table) can be set up as a
VIEW in a RDBMS environment. Of course, some of them can be wide and some of them can be narrow, and this aspect is determined by the number of base relations involved and the number of attributes (columns) defined in a particular operation.
To support the above, and because you want an accepted term, it is necessary to refer to an authoritative source. The best one is, naturally, the inventor of the Relational Model, Dr. Edgar Frank Codd. Regarding to these type of relations (tables), here is a small excerpt1 from his paper Extending the Database Relational Model to Capture More Meaning:
Base relations are those which are defined independently of other relations in the database in the sense that no base relation is completely derivable (independently of time) from any other base relation(s). Derived relations are those which can be completely derived from the base relations. It is this kind of relation which is normally employed to provide users or application programs with their own views of the database.
And here is an extract2 from his book The Relational Model for Database Management: Version 2:
…[R]elations, or R-tables, that are internally represented by stored data in some implementation-defined way are called the base relations or base R-tables. All R-tables other than base R-tables are called derived relations or, synonymously, derived R-tables. An example of a derived relation is a view. A view is a virtual R-table defined in terms of other R-tables, and is represented by its defining expression only.
