Space-Time Tradeoffs for Proximity Searching in Doubling Spaces
Abstract. We consider approximate nearest neighbor searching in metric spaces of constant doubling dimension. More formally, we are given a set S of n points and an error bound > 0. The objective is to build a data structure so that given any query point q in the space, it is possible to efficiently determine a point of S whose distance from q is within a factor of (1 + ) of the distance between q and its nearest neighbor in S. In this paper we obtain the following space-time tradeoffs. Given a parameter [2, 1/], we show how to construct a data structure of space nO(dim) log(1/) space that can answer queries in time O(log(n))+(1/())O(dim) . This is the first result that offers space-time tradeoffs for approximate nearest neighbor queries in doubling spaces. At one extreme it nearly matches the best result currently known for doubling spaces, and at the other extreme it results in a data structure that can answer queries in time O(log(n/)), which matches the best query times in Eu...
