A theory of indexing by Gerard Salton( )

19 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a theory of indexing capable of ranking index terms, or subject identifiers in decreasing order of importance. This leads to the choice of good document representations, and also accounts for the role of phrases and of thesaurus classes in the indexing process. This study is typical of theoretical work in automatic information organization and retrieval, in that concepts are used from mathematics, computer science, and linguistics. A complete theory of information retrieval may emerge from an appropriate combination of these three disciplines

Information storage and retrieval : scientific report no. ISR-18 to the National Science Foundation and to the National Library of Medicine : reports on analysis, dictionary construction, user feedback, clustering, and on-line retrieval by Cornell University( Book )

36 editions published between 1961 and 1970 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some experimental procedures for the identification of information content, using word frequency counting techniques are described. An attempt is made in particular to determine those areas in a natural language text which contain more than an average amount of new information. The use of tree structures for the representation of relations between terms included in classification systems, and between words in the natural language is discussed. Procedures are also suggested for the automatic identification of structural relations, and for the use of trees to perform the matching process. Some problems connected with the use of syntactic analysis for the identification of document content, and various strategies which appear useful for the processing of structured information are discussed. Methods are described for the efficient representation of tree structures in computer storage. Programs are also exhibited to perform a variety of information retrieval operations. (Author)
Proposals for a dynamic library by Gerard Salton( Book )

9 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current library environment is first examined, and an attempt is made to explain why the standard approaches to the library problem have been less productive than had been anticipated. A new design is then introduced for modern library operations based on a two-fold strategy: on the input side, the widest possible utilization should be made of cooperative and shared operations, whereas dynamic, user-controlled procedures should be used for the subsequent internal processes. The dynamic environment applies in particular to the maintenance of the indexing vocabulary, the organization of the stored information files, the performance of search and retrieval operations, and the control of the library collection necessitated by document growth and retirement. Some experimental results are included. (Author)
Information storage and retrieval reports on text analysis, dynamic indexing, feedback searches, dictionary construction and file organization by Gerard Salton( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present report is the twenty-first in a series describing research in information storage and retrieval conducted by the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University. The report covering work carried out by the smart project for approximately two years (summer 1970 to summer 1972) is separated into five parts: automatic content analysis (Sections I to v), dynamic document processing (Sections vi and vii), interactive feedback procedures (Sections viii to x), automatic dictionary construction (Sections xi to xiv), and clustered file organization (Sections xv to xvii). This scientific report contains new experimental results dealing with a comparison between automatic and manual indexing methods (Sections I and ii), proposals for dynamic collection control and automatic book retirement (Sections vi and vii), evaluation results for interactive feedback searches (Section viii), experiments relating to the automatic construction and maintenance of dictionaries and thesauruses used for language normalization (Sections xi to xiv), and new automatic document clustering methods (Sections xvi and xvii).

Test results are included which illustrate the effectiveness of the theory

A comparison of two methods for Boolean query relevance feedback by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relevance feedback process uses information derived from an initially retrieved set of documents to improve subsequent search formulations and retrieval output. In a Boolean query environment this implies that new query terms must be identified and Boolean operators must be chosen automatically to connect the various query terms. In this study, two recently proposed automatic methods for relevance feedback of Boolean queries are evaluated and conclusions are drawn concerning the use of effective feedback methods in a Boolean query environment
Res and Development in Information Retrieval by Gerard Salton( )

Flexible text matching for information retrieval by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This leads to the automatic introduction of links between related texts, and to the retrieval of text excerpts in response to available user queries. Evaluation results are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the text matching approach."
Advanced feedback methods in information retrieval by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Automatic feedback methods may be used in on-line information retrieval to generate improved query statements based on information contained in previously retrieved documents. In this study automatic relevance feedback techniques are applied to Boolean query statements. The feedback operations are carried out using both the conventional Boolean logic, as well as an extended logic producing improved retrieval effectiveness. Experimental output is included to evaluate the automatic feedback operations
Experiments in multi-lingual information retrieval by Gerard Salton( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comparison was made of the performance in an automatic information retrieval environment of user queries and document abstracts available in natural language form in both English and French. The results obtained indicate that the automatic indexing and retrieval techniques actually used appear equally effective in handling the query and document texts in both languages. (Author)
