    • n streaming In tin-mining, the washing of tin ore from the detritus with which it is associated. The now almost entirely exhausted deposits of detrital tin ore in Cornwall and Devon were called streams, because they occur chiefly in or near the bottoms of the valleys and adjacent to the present streams, or in the manner of deposits formed by streams, analogous to the channels of the Californian and the gutters of the Australian miners; the miners were themselves called streamers; the localities where streaming was carried on, stream-works; and the ore obtained, stream-tin.

Developing access control model and mechanism on data streams is more challenging due to the characteristics of stream data and Data Stream Management System (DSMS). - The data model used in DSMS are fundamentally different from those used in traditional RDBMS.

The query graph is applied to each tuple from the stream such each tuple in the output data stream satisfies all predicates in the query graph.
Cloud and the City: Facilitating Flexible Access Control over Data Streams
Instead of actual data, only a handle used to retrieve the actual data stream from data stream engine is returned as the response to user’s request.

The user then use this handle to connect to the backend data stream engine for data streams.

If the data stream owner for some reason has removed or modified the policy that grants the user for a particular data stream, the user may still connected to the data stream though he is not supposed to be able to access the data stream any longer.
Cloud and the City: Facilitating Flexible Access Control over Data Streams
In general, given a set of result streams derived from different aggregation windows with fixed advance step M and different window size N, N+1, N+2,.., N+M, we can reconstruct the original stream from the Nth tuple.

Streaming algorithms for recognizing nearly well-parenthesized expressions
We first prove a lemma similar to Lemma 4, to state that it suffices to design an efficient streaming algorithm for ∆≤k (1-turn-Dyck2 ) (∆≤k (1-turn-Dyck2 )) in order to get an efficient streaming algorithms for ∆≤k (1-turn-Dyckl ) (respectively, ∆≤k (Dyckl )).
Streaming algorithms for recognizing nearly well-parenthesized expressions
If there is a one-pass streaming algorithm for testing membership in ∆≤2k (1-turn-Dyck2 ) (∆≤2k (Dyck2 )) that uses space s(n) for inputs of length n, then there is a streaming algorithm for testing membership in ∆≤k (1-turn-Dyckl ) (∆≤k (Dyckl )) that uses space O(s(nl)) for inputs of length n.
