Dominant Graph: An Efficient Indexing Structure to Answer Top-K Queries
Given a record set D and a query score function F, a top-k query returns k records from D, whose values of function F on their attributes are the highest. In this paper, we investigate the intrinsic connection between top-k queries and dominant relationship between records, and based on which, we propose an efficient layer-based indexing structure, Dominant Graph (DG), to improve the query efficiency. Specifically, DG is built offline to express the dominant relationship between records and top-k query is implemented as a graph traversal problem, i.e. Traveler algorithm. We prove theoretically that the size of search space (that is the number of retrieved records from the record set to answer top-k query) in our basic algorithm is directly related to the cardinality of skyline points in the record set (see Theorem 3.2). Based on the cost analysis, we propose the optimization technique, pseudo record, to improve the search efficiency. In order to handle the top-k query in the high dimen...
