On Cost-effectiveness of a Semijoin in Distributed Query Processing.
The cost-effective reduction of relations by semijoins is the basis of the heuristic approach to distributed query processing. The cost-effectiveness of a semijoin was simply determined in the literature assuming that the ...
Expert Database Systems: Efficient Support for Engineering Environments.
Manufacturing and Engineering processes use both large scale data and knowledge bases, and the use of expert systems in such environments has become a necessity. Expert Database Systems have evolved from conventional ...
Combining Joins and Semijoins in Distributed Query Processing.
A new approach to distributed query processing is proposed. In the conventional approach, a query is processed by the reducing phase and the joining phase. In the reducing phase, the relations referenced in the query are ...
Operational Specification of Update Dependencies.
Update dependencies are the basis of a new formalism for operational database specification.
PSQL: An Efficient Pictorial Database System.
Pictorial databases require efficient and direct spatial search based on the analog form of spatial objects and relationships instead of search based on some cumbersome alphanumeric encodings of the pictures. This paper ...
Using 2-way Semijoins in Distributed Query Processing.
In distributed query processing, the semijoin has been used as an effective operator in reducing relations referenced in the query to reduce the total amount of data transmission. In this paper, we propose a new relational ...
A database system should support a rich variety of meta-data describing and controlling the management and use of data. Few present database systems provide even rudimentary integrated meta-data management facilities.
High Performance Engineering Information Systems.
We present a framework for developing High Performance Engineering Information Systems (EIS) based on Incremental Computation Models. These models utilize results of previous computations stored in persistent cache structures ...
The R+ -Tree: A Dynamic Index for Multi-Dimensional Objects.
The problem of indexing multidimensional objects is considered. First, a classification of existing methods in given along with a discussion of the major issues involved in multidimensional data indexing. Second, a variation ...
Analysis of Object Oriented Spatial Access Methods.
This paper provides an analysis of R-trees and a variation (R+ - trees) that avoids overlapping rectangles in intermediate nodes of the tree. The main contributions of the paper are the following. First, we show how the ...
