Abstract

We analyze the multilayer paradigm, a general principle for transforming index structures for points into index structures for non-zero size objects. For a specific multilayer grid structure, we perform a worst case analysis. A first step towards an average case analysis of grid structures is presented, where random intervals in a randomly divided data space are investigated.
