A reverse k-nearest neighbour (RkNN) query determines the objects from a database that have the query as one of their k-nearest neighbors. Processing such a query has received plenty of attention in research. However, the effect of running multiple RkNN queries at once (join) or within a short time interval (bulk/group query) has, to the best of our knowledge, not been addressed so far. In this paper, we analyze RkNN joins and discuss possible solutions for solving this problem. During our performance analysis we provide evaluation results showing the IO and CPU performance of the compared algorithms for a variety of different setups.
