Data Integration: A Theoretical Perspective
 Symposium on Principles of Database Systems
, 2002
"... Data integration is the problem of combining data residing at different sources, and providing the user with a unified view of these data. The problem of designing data integration systems is important in current real world applications, and is characterized by a number of issues that are interestin ..."

The TSIMMIS Project: Integration of Heterogeneous Information Sources
"... The goal of the Tsimmis Project is to develop tools that facilitate the rapid integration of heterogeneous information sources that may include both structured and unstructured data. This paper gives an overview of the project, describing components that extract properties from unstructured objects, ..."

Integration of trade and disintegration of production in the global economy
 Journal of Economic Perspectives
, 1998
"... The last few decades have seen a spectacular integration of the global economy through trade. The rising integration of world markets has brought with it a disintegration of the production process, however, as manufacturing or services activities done abroad are combined with those performed at home ..."

Global Optimization with Polynomials and the Problem of Moments
 SIAM Journal on Optimization
, 2001
"... We consider the problem of finding the unconstrained global minimum of a realvalued polynomial p(x) : R R, as well as the global minimum of p(x), in a compact set K defined by polynomial inequalities. It is shown that this problem reduces to solving an (often finite) sequence of convex linear mat ..."

The Lorel Query Language for Semistructured Data
 International Journal on Digital Libraries
, 1997
"... We present the Lorel language, designed for querying semistructured data. Semistructured data is becoming more and more prevalent, e.g., in structured documents such as HTML and when performing simple integration of data from multiple sources. Traditional data models and query languages are inapprop ..."

Qualitative process theory
 MIT AI Lab Memo
, 1982
"... Objects move, collide, flow, bend, heat up, cool down, stretch, compress. and boil. These and other things that cause changes in objects over time are intuitively characterized as processes. To understand commonsense physical reasoning and make programs that interact with the physical world as well ..."

motivates a new qualitative representation for quantity in terms of inequalities, called the quantity space. This paper describes the basic concepts of qualitative process theory, several different kinds of reasoning that can be performed with them, and discusses its implications for causal reasoning
Mtree: An Efficient Access Method for Similarity Search in Metric Spaces
, 1997
"... A new access meth d, called Mtree, is proposed to organize and search large data sets from a generic "metric space", i.e. whE4 object proximity is only defined by a distance function satisfyingth positivity, symmetry, and triangle inequality postulates. We detail algorith[ for insertion o ..."

The space complexity of approximating the frequency moments
 JOURNAL OF COMPUTER AND SYSTEM SCIENCES
, 1996
"... The frequency moments of a sequence containing mi elements of type i, for 1 ≤ i ≤ n, are the numbers Fk = �n i=1 mki. We consider the space complexity of randomized algorithms that approximate the numbers Fk, when the elements of the sequence are given one by one and cannot be stored. Surprisingly, ..."

The paper starts with discussing the working conditions of contentbased retrieval: patterns of use, types of pictures, the role of semantics, and the sensory gap. Subsequent sections discuss computational steps for imag ..."
