In the early 1980's, researchers recognized that semantic information stored in databases as integrity constraints could be used for query optimization. A new set of techniques called semantic query optimization (SQO) was developed. Some of the ideas developed for SQO have been used commercially, but to the best of our knowledge, no extensive(More)
Database queries often take the form of correlated SQL queries. Correlation refers to the use of values from the outer query block to compute the inner subquery. This is a convenient paradigm for SQL programmers and closely mimics a function invocation paradigm in a typical computer programming language. Queries with correlated subqueries are also often(More)
Executing ad hoc queries against large databases can be prohibitively expensive. Exploratory analysis of data may not require exact answers to queries, however: results based on sampling the data are often satisfactory. Supporting sampling as a primitive SQL operator turns out to be difficult because sampling does not commute with many SQL operators.In this(More)
In this paper, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were added into chitosan (CS) hydrogels in the form of chitosan modified CNTs (CS-CNTs) composites to prepare carbon nanotubes hydrogels (CNTs-GEL). The products, named CS-MWCNTs, were characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Swelling properties and effect(More)
