Abstract:This thesis further studies how to enable retrieval mechanisms beyond just ranking. Our explorative study in this direction is exemplified by two novel proposals---One is to integrate clustering and ranking of database query results; the other is to support inverse ranking queries that provide ranks of objects in query context. Injecting such non-traditional facilities into databases presents non-trivial challenges in both defining query semantics and designing query processing methods. We extended SQL language to express such queries and invented partition- and summary-driven approaches to process them.
