Faster output-sensitive skyline computation algorithm. (English) Zbl 1371.68294
Summary: We present the second output-sensitive skyline computation algorithm which is faster than the only existing output-sensitive skyline computation algorithm [D. G. Kirkpatrick and R. Seidel, “Output-size sensitive algorithms for finding maximal vectors”, in: Proceedings of the 1st annual symposium on computational geometry, SCG’85. New York, NY: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). 89–96 (1985; doi:10.1145/323233.323246)] in worst case because our algorithm does not rely on the existence of a linear time procedure for finding medians.
