5.2 Data Cube Computation Methods

Data cube computation is an essential task in data warehouse implementation. The precomputation of all or part of a data cube can greatly reduce the response time and enhance the performance of online analytical processing. However, such computation is challenging because it may require substantial computational time and storage space. This section explores efficient methods for data cube computation. Section 5.2.1 describes the multiway array aggregation (MultiWay) method for computing full cubes. Section 5.2.2 describes a method known as BUC, which computes iceberg cubes from the apex cuboid downward. Section 5.2.3 describes the Star-Cubing method, which integrates top-down and bottom-up computation.

Finally, ...
