The goal of a probabilistic retrieval system design is to rank the elements of the search universe in descending order of their estimated probability of usefulness to the user. Previously explored methods for computing such a ranking have involved the use of statistical independence assumptions and multiple regression analysis on a learning sample. In this paper these techniques are recombined in a new way to achieve greater accuracy of probabilistic estimate without undue additional… Expand
