  • Inverted index structures are the mainstay of modern text retrieval systems. They can be constructed quickly using off-line merge-based methods, and provide efficient support for a variety of querying modes. In this paper we examine the task of on-line index construction -- that is, how to build an inverted index when the underlying data must be continuously queryable, and the documents must be indexed and available for search as soon they are inserted. When straightforward approaches are used… CONTINUE READING
