As such, the index is capable to support all XPath axes (including ancestor, following, preceding-sibling, descendant-or-self, etc.). This feature lets the index stand out among related work on XML indexing structures which had a focus on regular path expressions (which correspond to the XPath axes children and descendant-or-self plus name tests). Its ability to start traversals from arbitrary context nodes in an XML document additionally enables the index to support the evaluation of path traversals embedded in XQuery expressions. Despite its exibility, the new index can be implemented and queried using purely relational techniques, but it performs especially well if the underlying database host provides support for R-trees. A performance assessment which shows quite promising results completes this proposal.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Grust, Torsten</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2002</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Proc. of the 28.
