Abstract

Broadcast-based systems Peer-To-Peer (P2P) systems use messageflooding to propagate queries and have been successfully employed in practice to form large-scale ad-hoc networks. Most existing systems (e.g. Gnutella) support only keyword searching. Each file is characterized by its metadata and queries ask for combinations of keywords. Consider for instance a music sharing system. Users ask for a song title, or a combination of an artist and album name. Such queries can be unambiguously evaluated as "found" or "not found" by searching the metadata for matching keywords.
