Abstract: Typechecking consists of statically verifying whether the output of an XML transformation is always conform to an output for documents satisfying a given input type. We focus on complete algorithms which always produce the correct answer. We consider top-down XML transformations incorporating XPath expressions and abstract document types by grammars and tree automata. By restricting schema languages and transformations, we identify several practical settings for which typechecking is in polynomial time. Moreover, the resulting framework provides a rather complete picture as we show that most scenarios can not be enlarged without rendering the typechecking problem intactable. So, the present research sheds light on when to use fast complete algorithms and when to reside to sound but incomplete ones.
