When the answers of a query or search are varying in quality and are large in numbers, it is necessary to rank/order these answers based on some criteria. From a users’ viewpoint, ranking is extremely useful especially when associated with the retrieval of a few (topk) answers. Currently, the notion of ranking is being applied to database query answers (ordering based on user criteria) in order to retrieve top-k answers. One of the challenges is to push ranking computation into the query processing stage to make it efficient and eliminate post processing operations.
