Paper Review: An Array-Based Algorithm for Simultaneous Multidimensional Aggregates

Title and Author of Paper An Array-Based Algorithm for Simultaneous Multidimensional Aggregates. Y. Zhao et al. Summary One of the core functions of an OLAP system is computing aggregations and group-by operations. This functionality has been characterized by the “Cube” operator, which computes group-by aggregations over all possible subsets of a specified dimension. As an example of the Cube operator, consider a model with the dimensions product, store, date, and the measured value sales. [Read More]
