I'm researching bitmap indexes for an MSc assignment.
A good early paper on the topic is "Bit Transposed Files" by Wong et al, published in 1985.
I find the paper's description of Composite Encoding a little unclear, and would like some help to understand it.
Is this a good place to ask such a question?
Can you point me to existing questions or advice that I should follow in asking such a question?
If this is not a good place, is there a more appropriate place? The Theoretical Computer Science Stack Exchange seems to love stuff like this.
