Query Languages for Bags and Aggregate Functions

Leonid Libkin, Limsoon Wong
1997 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)  
Then we obtain BQL, a query language for bags, by picking the strongest combination of these operators.  ...  Theoretical foundations for querying databases based on bags are studied in this paper. We fully determine the strength of many polynomial-time bag operators relative to an ambient query language.  ...  We gratefully acknowledge the support of an AT&T Doctoral Fellowship and NSF Grant IRI-90-04137 (for Libkin) and NSF Grant IRI-90-04137 and ARO Grant DAALO3-89-C-0031-PRIME (for Wong).  ...

Modeling, querying and reasoning about OLAP databases

Ken Q. Pu
2005 Proceedings of the 8th ACM international workshop on Data warehousing and OLAP - DOLAP  
We propose a new functional framework for modeling, querying and reasoning about OLAP databases.  ...  which permits equational reasoning on equivalence of OLAP queries and generalized summarizability of aggregate views.  ...  New functionalities, such as new aggregation functions, can be added into the query language as additional functional symbols and equations. • All functions are polymorphically typed.  ...

Finally, safely-extensible and efficient language-integrated query

Kenichi Suzuki, Oleg Kiselyov, Yukiyoshi Kameyama
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Partial Evaluation and Program Manipulation - PEPM 2016  
Language-integrated query takes advantage of the host language's functional and modular abstractions to compose and reuse queries and build query libraries.  ...  With this technique we have embedded into OCaml a relational query language that supports a very large subset of SQL including grouping and aggregation.  ...  We thank Kazu Yamamoto for many helpful discussions, and anonymous reviewers for constructive comments. The third author is supported in part by JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research No. 25280020.  ...

Compilers and optimizers for declarative query languages use some form of intermediate language to represent user-level queries.  ...  The advent of compositional query languages for orthogonal type systems (e.g., OQL) calls for internal query representations beyond extensions of relational algebra.  ...  query language implementation in this functional framework.  ...

Rewriting Count Queries over DL-Lite TBoxes with Number Restrictions

Diego Calvanese, Julien Corman, Davide Lanti, Simon Razniewski
2020 International Workshop on Description Logics  
The target query language is an extension of relational algebra with aggregation and arithmetic functions, which can be translated into SQL.  ...  We propose a query rewriting algorithm for a restricted class of conjunctive queries evaluated under count semantics over a DL-Lite knowledge base.  ...  language, specifically with the aggregate operator sum and with the binary function greatest.  ...

Generic multiset programming for language-integrated querying

Fritz Henglein, Ken Friis Larsen
2010 Proceedings of the 6th ACM SIGPLAN workshop on Generic programming - WGP '10  
This paper demonstrates how relational algebraic programming based on efficient symbolic representations of multisets and operations on them can be applied to the query sublanguage of SQL in a type-safe  ...  In essence, it provides a library for naïve programming with multisets in a generalized SQL-style fashion, but avoids many cases of asymptotically inefficient nested iteration through cross-products.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Phil Wadler, who provided the incentive and encouragement for this work, and the anonymous referees, who have provided valuable corrections and suggestions for improvements  ...

An optimization framework for map-reduce queries

Leonidas Fegaras, Chengkai Li, Upa Gupta
2012 Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Extending Database Technology - EDBT '12  
Current map-reduce query languages, such as HiveQL and PigLatin, enable users to plug-in custom map-reduce scripts into queries for those jobs that cannot be declaratively coded in the query language,  ...  Although our framework is applicable to any SQL-like map-reduce query language, we focus on a powerful query language, called MRQL.  ...  the query language supports dependent joins, nested queries, and user-defined functions.  ...

Pig latin

Christopher Olston, Benjamin Reed, Utkarsh Srivastava, Ravi Kumar, Andrew Tomkins
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM SIGMOD international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '08  
Pig is an open-source, Apache-incubator project, and available for general use.  ...  We describe a new language called Pig Latin that we have designed to fit in a sweet spot between the declarative style of SQL, and the low-level, procedural style of map-reduce.  ...  Acknowledgments We are grateful to the Hadoop and Pig engineering teams at Yahoo! for helping us make Pig real.  ...

Orchard: Differentially Private Analytics at Scale

Edo Roth, Hengchu Zhang, Andreas Haeberlen, Benjamin C. Pierce
2020 USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation  
Moreover, whereas previous solutions that shared these properties were custombuilt for specific queries, Orchard is general and can accept a wide range of queries.  ...  Orchard combines high accuracy with good scalability, and it uses only a single untrusted party to facilitate the query.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank our shepherd Bryan Parno and the anonymous reviewers for their thoughtful comments and suggestions.  ...

ConQuer: A conceptual query language [chapter]

A. C. Bloesch, T. A. Halpin
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Relational query languages such as SQL and QBE are less than ideal for end user queries since they require users to work explicitly with structures at the relational level, rather than at the conceptual  ...  ConQuer is a new conceptual query language that allows users to formulate queries naturally in terms of elementary relationships, and operators such as "and", "not" and "maybe", thus avoiding the need  ...  A semantics for the bag (aggregate) functions of ConQuer can be given as follows.  ...

Scalable Querying of Nested Data [article]

Jaclyn Smith, Michael Benedikt, Milos Nikolic, Amir Shaikhha
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The framework employs a combination of query compilation techniques, an efficient data representation for nested collections, and automated skew-handling.  ...  While large-scale distributed data processing platforms have become an attractive target for query processing, these systems are problematic for applications that deal with nested collections.  ...  We will use an intermediate query language, denoted NRC Lbl+λ , which extends NRC with a new atomic type for labels and a function type for dictionaries.  ...

Supporting Bulk Synchronous Parallelism in Map-Reduce Queries

Leonidas Fegaras

We present a framework for translating complex declarative queries for scientific and graph data analysis applications to both MR and BSP evaluation plans, leaving the choice to be made at run-time based  ...  If the resources are sufficient, the query will be evaluated entirely in memory based on the BSP model, otherwise, the same query will be evaluated based on the MR model.  ...  m 2 are the map functions for S 1 and S 2 , respectively, and r is the reduce function.  ...

Using Schema Transformation Pathways for Incremental View Maintenance [chapter]

Hao Fan
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our approach is not limited to one specific data model or query language, and would be useful in any data transformation/integration framework based on sequences of primitive schema transformations.  ...  With the increasing amount and diversity of information available on the Internet, there has been a huge growth in information systems that need to integrate data from distributed, heterogeneous data sources  ...  from a bag. f D applies an aggregation function f (which may be max, min, count, sum or avg) to a bag. gc f D groups a bag D of pairs on their first component and applies an aggregation function f to  ...
