Maximizing conjunctive views in deletion propagation
In deletion propagation, tuples from the database are deleted in order to reflect the deletion of a tuple from the view. Such an operation may result in the (often necessary) del...

Near-linear approximation algorithms for geometric hitting sets
Given a set system (X, R), the hitting set problem is to find a smallest-cardinality subset H ⊆ X, with the property that each range R ∈ R has a non-empty intersection with H...
