Similarity joins and beyond: an extended set of binary operators with order
Similarity joins are troublesome database operators that often produce results much larger than the user really needs or expects. In order to return the similar elements, similarity joins also require sorting during the ...
Overall Similarity Overrides Element Similarity when Evaluating the Quality of Analogies
(Seoul National University. Institute for Cognitive Science, 2013-09)
Dominant computational models of analogical reasoning (e.g., SME, ACME and LISA) consider that two facts or situations are more analogous as the similarity between corresponding propositional elements increases. We report ...

An analysis of context-based similarity tasks in textbooks from Brazil and the United States
Three textbooks from Brazil and three textbooks from the United States were analysed with a focus on similarity and context-based tasks. Students’ opportunities to learn similarity were examined by considering whether ...
MolShaCS: a free and open source tool for ligand similarity identification based on Gaussian descriptors
(Elsevier MassonIssy les Moulineaux, 2013-01)
Molecular similarity evaluation is an important step in most drug development strategies, since molecular similarity is usually related to functional similarity. Here, we developed a method based on the Gaussian description ...
Diversity in similarity joins
With the increasing ability of current applications to produce and consume more complex data, such as images and geographic information, the similarity join has attracted considerable attention. However, this operator does ...
Coral similarity and connectivity of some reefs of the Gulf of Mexico and the mexican caribbean
(Proceedings of the 62nd Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute November 2 - 6, 2009 Cumana, Venezuela, 2009)
Coral reef connectivity results from the export and import of species or reproductive product between localities. Possible exchange pathways between the reef ecosystems in the country are not known; such knowledge about ...
Double distance-calculation-pruning for similarity search
Many modern applications deal with complex data, where retrieval by similarity plays an important role. Complex data main comparison mechanisms are based on similarity predicates. They are usually immersed in metric spaces ...
Coffee and Caffeine Protect against Liver Injury Induced by Thioacetamide in Male Wistar Rats
Coffee intake has been inversely related to the incidence of liver diseases, although there are controversies on whether these beneficial effects on human health are because of caffeine or other specific components in this ...
