Towards Window Analytics over Large-scale Graphs

Qi Fan, Kian-Lee Tan
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 ACM SIGMOD on PhD Symposium - SIGMOD '15 PhD Symposium

As shown, the degree affects the query processing time -when the degree increases, the query time increases as well.  ...

Higher degree research candidates' initial expectations in fine art

Allyson Holbrook, Beverley Simmons, Jill Scevak, Janene Budd
2013 Text: Journal of the Australian Association of Writing Programs
