Multi-dimensional data structures have been widely applied in many data management fields. Spatial data indexing is their natural application, however there are many applications in different domain fields. When a compression of these data structures is considered, we follow two objectives. The first objective is a smaller index file, the second one is a(More)
Data compression has been widely applied in many data processing areas. Compression methods use variable-length codes with the shorter codes assigned to symbols or groups of symbols that appear in the data frequently. There exist many coding algorithms, e.g. Elias-delta codes, Fibonacci codes and other variable-length codes which are often applied to(More)
Searching for occurrences of a twig pattern query (TPQ) in an XML document is a core task of all XML database query languages. The generalized twig pattern (GTP) extends the TPQ model to include semantics related to output nodes, optional nodes, and boolean expressions which are part of the XQuery language. Preorder filtering holistic algorithms such as(More)
XML (Extensible Mark-up Language) has been embraced as a new approach to data modeling. Nowadays, more and more information is formatted as semi-structured data, e.g., articles in a digital library, documents on the web, and so on. Implementation of an efficient system enabling storage and querying of XML documents requires development of new techniques.(More)
