    • Weights and Measures: An Axiomatic Model for Similarity Computations 

      France, Robert K. (1994)
      This paper proposes a formal model for similarity functions, first over arbitrary objects, then over sets and the sorts of weighted sets that are found in text retrieval systems. Using a handful of axioms and constraints, ...
    • Weka 

      Peddi, Bhanu; Xiong, Huijun; ElSherbiny, Noha (2010-12-10)
      This module stresses the methods of text classification used in information retrieval. We focus on the usage of Weka, a data mining toolkit, in data processing with three classification algorithms: Naive Bayes [1], k Nearest ...

    • When Stopping Rules Don't Stop 

      France, Robert K. (1995)
      Performing ranked retrieval on large document collections can be slow. The method of stopping rules has been proposed to make it more efficient. Stopping rules, which terminate search when the highest ranked documents have ...
