An expressive and efficient language for XML information retrieval

Taurai Tapiwa Chinenyanga, Nicholas Kushmerick
2002 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Similarity joins are not merely of theoretical interest.  ...  Q 1 2 retrieves books from the XML database, and Q 2 2 retrieves CDs. Note that ELIXIR retrieves these items separately to avoid computing the cross product of book/CD pairs.  ...  Similarity joins are not merely of theoretical interest.  ...
