Summary:
This study undertook an in-depth analysis of large files of personal author names to permit the development of techniques and algorithms to automatically: (1) correct and/or flag typographical errors in names, (2) identify names in a data base that are similar to a name entered by a user during a search, and (3) measure similarities among names. The study found that personal names have very different  Read more...

Abstract:

This study undertook an in-depth analysis of large files of personal author names to permit the development of techniques and algorithms to automatically: (1) correct and/or flag typographical errors in names, (2) identify names in a data base that are similar to a name entered by a user during a search, and (3) measure similarities among names. The study found that personal names have very different characteristics than English language words.This project demonstrated that useful displays for human verification of author names can be built, although at some computational expense. Automatic correction of errors, which would require even greater computation, was not demonstrated by this project. However, automatic correction seems feasible with extensions of the techniques in this project for automatic detection.
