Abstract
(English)
Similarity searching is fundamental in various application areas. Recently it has attracted much attention in the database community because of the growing need to deal with large volume of data. Consequently, efficiency has become a matter of concern in design. Although much has been done to develop structures able to perform fast similarity search, results are still not satisfactory, and more research is needed. The performance of similarity search for complex features deteriorates and does not scale well to very large object collections. Given the intrinsically interactive nature of the similarity-based search process, the efficient execution of elementary queries has become even more important, and the notion of approximate search has emerged as an important research issue.
