<p><it>Abstract</it>—This correspondence proposes two ways to improve the sort-merge based band join algorithm. The techniques proposed address issues that have not been previously discussed: to choose a right relation as the inner relation to achieve better performance and to optimally allocate and adjust buffer allocations to make the algorithms robust to data skew and estimation errors.</p>
Band join algorithms, buffer allocation, database query processing, data skew handling.
