As I understand it,
CROSS JOIN is essentially a cross product which produces a Cartesian Product. Are
OUTER JOIN Cartesian products as well except for fact that they don't produce duplicates and have some condition applied to them?
Note: I don't believe this is a duplicate. The link does not elaborate on the difference to the detail that I was looking for. It's left up to the reader to dig through & infer the differences. The answer I've provided below will hopefully save the reader some time.
