Linguistic research and natural language processing employ large repositories of ordered trees. XML, a standard ordered tree model, and XPath, its associated language, are natural choices for linguistic data and queries. However, several important expressive features required for linguistic queries are missing or hard to express in XPath. In this paper, we(More)
Linguistic research and language technology development employ large repositories of ordered trees. XML, a standard ordered tree model, and XPath, its associated language, are natural choices for linguistic data storage and queries.

Streaming XPath evaluation algorithms must record a potentially exponential number of pattern matches when both predicates and descendant axes are present in queries, and the XML data is recursive. In this paper, we use a compact data structure to encode these pattern matches rather than storing them explicitly. We then propose a polynomial time streaming(More)
Current techniques for storing XML using relational technology consider the structure of an XML document but ignore its semantics as expressed by keys or functional dependencies. However, when the semantics of a document are considered redundancy may be reduced, node identifiers removed where value-based keys are available, and semantic constraints(More)
Multimedia contents, especially videos, are being exponentially generated today. Due to the limited local storage, people are willing to store the videos at the remote cloud media center for its low cost and scalable storage. However, videos may have to be encrypted before outsourcing for privacy concerns. For practical purposes, the cloud media center(More)
