Efficient evaluation of n-ary conjunctive queries over trees and graphs

François Bry, Tim Furche, Benedikt Linse, Andreas Schroeder
2006 Proceedings of the eighth ACM international workshop on Web information and data management - WIDM '06  
Furthermore, the approach treats tree and graph-shaped queries uniformly without sacrificing evaluation complexity on the restricted query class.  ...  We propose the first evaluation technique for n-ary conjunctive queries that applies to both tree-and graph-shaped data and retains the same complexity as the best known approaches that are restricted  ...  Unsurprisingly, the shape of the query has a more pronounced effect on the complexity and performance of the evaluation algorithms: Where for path and tree queries the complexity of the evaluation algorithms  ...

Evaluation of SPARQL Queries Using Relational Databases [chapter]

Jiří Dokulil
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Basic storage and querying of RDF data using a relational database can be done in a very simple manner. Such approach can run into trouble when used on large and complex data.  ...  This paper presents such data and several sample queries together with analysis of their performance. It also describes two possible ways of improving the performance based on this analysis.  ...  We used a straightforward way of storing RDF data in a relational database. This allowed us to evaluate SPARQL queries by translating them to SQL queries.  ...

Descriptive Complexity Theory for Constraint Databases [chapter]

Erich Grädel, Stephan Kreutzer
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The proof of the theorem demonstrates a simple argument for translating complexity results for pre x classes in logical theories to results on the complexity of query evaluation in constraint databases  ...  Considering linear constraints, we show that there is a signi cant gap between the data complexity of rst-order queries on linear constraint databases over the real and the natural numbers.  ...  Dense Linear Orders We now consider the complexity of query evaluation in the context of dense linear orders.  ...

On the complexity of query answering over incomplete XML documents

Amélie Gheerbrant, Leonid Libkin, Tony Tan
2012 Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Database Theory - ICDT '12  
The goal of this paper is to provide a complete picture of the complexity of query answering over incomplete XML documents.  ...  To incorporate non-positive features into query languages, we look at gentle ways of introducing negation via inequalities and/or Boolean combinations of positive queries, as well as the analog of relational  ...  For them, we show that the complexity of all the query answering tasks is the same as for relations.  ...

Quantum Query Complexity of State Conversion

Troy Lee, Rajat Mittal, Ben W. Reichardt, Robert Špalek, Mario Szegedy
2011 2011 IEEE 52nd Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science  
In the special case of function evaluation, the norm is closely related to the general adversary bound, a semi-definite program that lower-bounds the number of input queries needed by a quantum algorithm  ...  product of the query complexities of the functions, up to a constant.  ...  This follows as quantum query complexity is given by the filtered factorization norm of the difference J − F . • Relation to adversary bound: The semi-definite program giving the filtered factorization  ...

We appreciate the feedback from the program committee and Moshe Vardi.  ...  of evaluating a query on a database instance, when the query is fixed, and we express the complexity as a function of the size of the database.  ...  It has been noted rather early [14] that, when considering the complexity of evaluating a query on an instance, one has to distinguish between two kinds of complexity: Data complexity is the complexity  ...

Correctness of SQL Queries on Databases with Nulls

Paolo Guagliardo, Leonid Libkin
2017 SIGMOD record  
As a result, the evaluation of SQL queries on databases with nulls may produce answers that are just plain wrong.  ...  However, SQL evaluation can be modified, at least for relational algebra queries, to approximate certain answers, i.e., return only correct answers.  ...  Acknowledgments This survey is based on the work originally published in [15, 25] , which greatly benefited from discussions with  ...
