In this overview paper we motivate the need for and research issues arising from a new model of data processing. In this model, data does not take the form of persistent relations, but rather arrives in multiple, continuous, rapid, timevarying data streams. In addition to reviewing past work relevant to data stream systems and current projects in the area, the paper explores topics in stream query languages, new requirements and challenges in query processing, and algorithmic issues.

Abstract: The web harbors a large number of communities groups of contentcreators sharing a common interest each of which manifests itself as a set of interlinked web pages. Newgroups and commercial web directories together contain of the order of 20000 such communities; our particular interest here is on emerging communities those that have little or no representation in such fora. The subject of this paper is the systematic enumeration of over 100,000 such emerging communities from a web crawl: we call our process trawling. We motivate a graphtheoretic approach to locating such communities, and describe the algorithms, and the algorithmic engineering necessary to find structures that subscribe to this notion, the challenges in handling such a huge data set, and the results of our experiment.

Abstract. We present a 1pass algorithm for estimating the most frequent items in a data stream using very limited storage space. Our method relies on a novel data structure called a count sketch, which allows us to estimate the frequencies of all the items in the stream. Our algorithm achieves better space bounds than the previous best known algorithms for this problem for many natural distributions on the item frequencies. In addition, our algorithm leads directly to a 2pass algorithm for the problem of estimating the items with the largest (absolute) change in frequency between two data streams. To our knowledge, this problem has not been previously studied in the literature. 1

In this paper we show several results obtained by combining the use of stable distributions with pseudorandom generators for bounded space. In particular: ffl we show how to maintain (using only O(log n=ffl 2 ) words of storage) a sketch C(p) of a point p 2 l n 1 under dynamic updates of its coordinates, such that given sketches C(p) and C(q) one can estimate jp \Gamma qj 1 up to a factor of (1 + ffl) with large probability. This solves the main open problem of [10]. ffl we obtain another sketch function C 0 which maps l n 1 into a normed space l m 1 (as opposed to C), such that m = m(n) is much smaller than n; to our knowledge this is the first dimensionality reduction lemma for l 1 norm ffl we give an explicit embedding of l n 2 into l n O(log n) 1 with distortion (1 + 1=n \Theta(1) ) and a nonconstructive embedding of l n 2 into l O(n) 1 with distortion (1 + ffl) such that the embedding can be represented using only O(n log 2 n) bits (as opposed to at least...

In many recent applications, data may take the form of continuous data streams, rather than finite stored data sets. Several aspects of data management need to be reconsidered in the presence of data streams, offering a new research direction for the database community. In this paper we focus primarily on the problem of query processing, specifically on how to define and evaluate continuous queries over data streams. We address semantic issues as well as efficiency concerns. Our main contributions are threefold. First, we specify a general and flexible architecture for query processing in the presence of data streams. Second, we use our basic architecture as a tool to clarify alternative semantics and processing techniques for continuous queries. The architecture also captures most previous work on continuous queries and data streams, as well as related concepts such as triggers and materialized views. Finally, we map out research topics in the area of query processing over data streams, showing where previous work is relevant and describing problems yet to be addressed.

Mayur Datar Aristides Gionis y Piotr Indyk z Rajeev Motwani x Abstract We consider the problem of maintaining aggregates and statistics over data streams, with respect to the last N data elements seen so far. We refer to this model as the sliding window model. We consider the following basic problem: Given a stream of bits, maintain a count of the number of 1's in the last N elements seen from the stream. We show that using O( 1 ffl log 2 N) bits of memory, we can estimate the number of 1's to within a factor of 1 + ffl. We also give a matching lower bound of \Omega\Gamma 1 ffl log 2 N) memory bits for any deterministic or randomized algorithms. We extend our scheme to maintain the sum of the last N positive integers. We provide matching upper and lower bounds for this more general problem as well. We apply our techniques to obtain efficient algorithms for the Lp norms (for p 2 [1; 2]) of vectors under the sliding window model. Using the algorithm for the basic counting problem, one can adapt many other techniques to work for the sliding window model, with a multiplicative overhead of O( 1 ffl log N) in memory and a 1 + ffl factor loss in accuracy. These include maintaining approximate histograms, hash tables, and statistics or aggregates such as sum and averages.

Compressed sensing is a new concept in signal processing where one seeks to minimize the number of measurements to be taken from signals while still retaining the information necessary to approximate them well. The ideas have their origins in certain abstract results from functional analysis and approximation theory by Kashin [23] but were recently brought into the forefront by the work of Candès, Romberg and Tao [7, 5, 6] and Donoho [9] who constructed concrete algorithms and showed their promise in application. There remain several fundamental questions on both the theoretical and practical side of compressed sensing. This paper is primarily concerned about one of these theoretical issues revolving around just how well compressed sensing can approximate a given signal from a given budget of fixed linear measurements, as compared to adaptive linear measurements. More precisely, we consider discrete signals x ∈ IR N, allocate n < N linear measurements of x, and we describe the range of k for which these measurements encode enough information to recover x in the sense of ℓp to the accuracy of best kterm approximation. We also consider the problem of having such accuracy only with high probability.

Histograms have been used widely to capture data distribution, to represent the data by a small number of step functions. Dynamic programming algorithms which provide optimal construction of these histograms exist, albeit running in quadratic time and linear space. In this paper we provide linear time construction of 1 + epsilon approximation of optimal histograms, running in polylogarithmic space. Our results extend to the context of datastreams, and in fact generalize to give 1 + epsilon approximation of several problems in datastreams which require partitioning the index set into intervals. The only assumptions required are that the cost of an interval is monotonic under inclusion (larger interval has larger cost) and that the cost can be computed or approximated in small space. This exhibits a nice class of problems for which we can have near optimal datastream algorithms.

We introduce reductions in the streaming model as a tool in the design of streaming algorithms. We develop the concept of listefficient streaming algorithms that are essential to the design of efficient streaming algorithms through reductions. Our results include a suite of listefficient streaming algorithms for basic statistical primitives. Using the reduction paradigm along with these tools, we design streaming algorithms for approximately counting the number of triangles in a graph presented as a stream. A specific highlight of our work is the first algorithm for the number of distinct elements in a data stream that achieves arbitrary approximation factors. (Independently, Trevisan [Tre01] has solved this problem via a different approach; our algorithm has the advantage of being listefficient.)
