An important consideration in similarity-based retrieval of moving object trajectories is the definition of a distance function. The existing distance functions are usually sensitive to noise, shifts and scaling of data that commonly occur due to sensor failures, errors in detection techniques, disturbance signals, and different sampling rates. Cleaning(More)
Traditional databases store sets of relatively static records with no pre-defined notion of time, unless timestamp attributes are explicitly added. While this model adequately represents commercial catalogues or repositories of personal information, many current and emerging applications require support for on-line analysis of rapidly changing data streams.(More)
XML support is being added to existing database management systems (DBMSs) and native XML systems are being developed both in industry and in academia. The individual performance characteristics of these approaches as well as the relative performance of various systems is an ongoing concern. In this paper we discuss the XBench XML benchmark and report on(More)
Bichromatic reverse nearest neighbor (BRNN) has been extensively studied in spatial database literature. In this paper , we study a related problem called MaxBRNN: find an optimal region that maximizes the size of BRNNs. Such a problem has many real life applications, including the problem of finding a new server point that attracts as many customers as(More)
We propose XSEED, a synopsis of path queries for cardinality estimation that is accurate, robust, efficient, and adaptive to memory budgets. XSEED starts from a very small kernel, and then incrementally updates information of the synopsis. With such an incremental construction, a synopsis structure can be dynamically configured to accommodate different(More)
The k-core of a graph is the largest subgraph in which every vertex is connected to at least k other vertices within the subgraph. Core decomposition finds the k-core of the graph for every possible k. Past studies have shown important applications of core decomposition such as in the study of the properties of large networks (e.g., sustainability,(More)
The W3C XQuery language recommendation, based on a hierarchical and ordered document model, supports a wide variety of constructs and use cases. There is a diversity of approaches and strategies for evaluating XQuery expressions, in many cases only dealing with limited subsets of the language. In this paper we describe an implementation approach that(More)
Predicting the next request of a user as she visits Web pages has gained importance as Web-based activity increases. Markov models and their variations, or models based on sequence mining have been found well suited for this problem. However, higher order Markov models are extremely complicated due to their large number of states whereas lower order Markov(More)
