Optimizing queries in a distributed database is quite difficult. This work proposes defining new generalized quantifiers which operate on sets rather than tuples. These quantifiers would allow for easier optimization in a horizontally distributed database. These operators are scalable with respect to both the number of hosts in the environment and the size of the data used.
