A Minimal Variance Estimator for the Cardinality of Big Data Set Intersection

  title={A Minimal Variance Estimator for the Cardinality of Big Data Set Intersection},
  author={Reuven Cohen and Liran Katzir and Aviv Yehezkel},
In recent years there has been a growing interest in developing "streaming algorithms" for efficient processing and querying of continuous data streams. These algorithms seek to provide accurate results while minimizing the required storage and the processing time, at the price of a small inaccuracy in their output. A fundamental query of interest is the intersection size of two big data streams. This problem arises in many different application areas, such as network monitoring, database… CONTINUE READING
