The remainder of the book discusses recent advances in indexing and access methods for particular database applications. More specifically, issues such as external sorting, file structures for intervals, temporal access methods, spatial and spatio-temporal indexing, image and multimedia indexing, perfect external hashing methods, parallel access methods, concurrency issues in indexing and parallel external sorting are presented for the first time in a single book.
