Taylor Kessler Faulkner, Will Brackenbury, Ashwin Lall
2015 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
Prior work with k-regret queries assumes users' preferences to be modeled by linear utility functions.  ...  This approach combines benefits of the methods top-k and skyline; it controls the size of the output but does not require knowledge of users' preferences.  ...  Top-k dominating query combines benefits of both top-k and skyline, as it controls output size without asking users for utility functions.  ...
