Information Retrieval

Information Retrieval

Keith Van Rijsbergen demonstrates how different models of information retrieval (IR) can be combined in the same framework used to formulate the general principles of quantum mechanics.


The material of this book is aimed at advanced undergraduate information (or computer) science students, postgraduate library science students, and research workers in the field of IR. Some of the chapters, particular chapter 6 (this became chapter 7 in the second edition), make simple use of a little advanced mathematics. However, the necessary mathematical tools can be easily mastered from numerous mathematical texts that now exist and, in any case, references have been given where the mathematics occur.
