Generalized Vector Space Model in Information Retrieval

  title={Generalized Vector Space Model in Information Retrieval},
  author={S. K. Michael Wong and Wojciech Ziarko and P. C. N. Wong},
In information retrieval, it is common to model index terms and documents as vectors in a suitably defined vector space. The main difficulty with this approach is that the explicit representation of term vectors is not known a priori. For this reason, the vector space model adopted by Salton for the SMART system treats the terms as a set of orthogonal vectors. In such a model it is often necessary to adopt a separate, corrective procedure to take into account the correlations between terms. In… CONTINUE READING
