About this book


This research book presents key developments, directions, and challenges concerning advanced query processing for both traditional and non-traditional data. A special emphasis is devoted to approximation and adaptivity issues as well as to the integration of heterogeneous data sources.


The book will prove useful as a reference book for senior undergraduate or graduate courses on advanced data management issues, which have a special focus on query processing and data integration. It is aimed for technologists, managers, and developers who want to know more about emerging trends in advanced query processing.
