Both amount and complexity of stored data rapidly grow. The information is presented in the form of complex objects with explicit or implicit structure. In this paper, the authors introduce a set of operations for complex manipulation with approximate queries represented by scoring functions. They show correspondence of these operations to the user expectations and applications needs. They evaluate the effectiveness of their techniques in the context of content-based image retrieval task and compare it to the known fusion methods.
