Presentation Transcript
• supposedly easy to grasp by the user
• precise semantics of queries
• implemented in the majority of commercial systems
problems of Boolean model
• sharp distinction between relevant and irrelevant documents
• no ranking possible
• users find it difficult to formulate Boolean queries
• users find it difficult to resolve Boolean queries
vector model
• associates weights with each index term appearing in the query and in each database document.
• relevance can be calculated as the cosine between the two vectors, i.e. their cross product divided be the square roots of the squares of each vector. This measure varies between 0 and 1.
tf/idf
• stands for term frequency / inverse document frequency
• This refers to a technique that gives term a high rank in a document if
• the term appears frequently in a document
• the term does not appear frequently in other documents
• We will look at each component one at time.
absolute & maximum term frequency
• Let F_t_d be the number of times term t appears in the document d. This is its absolute term frequency in the document.
• Let m_d be the maximum absolute term frequency achieved by any term in document d. Examples
• Document 1: a b a a b c c d

m_1 = 3, because "a" appears 3 times

• Document 2: a b a f f f e d f a a

m_2 = 4, because "a" or "f" appears 4 times

relative document term frequency
• The relative term frequency f_t_d, is given by

f_t_d = F_t_d / m_d

that is the absolute term frequency of term t in document d divided by the maximum absolute term frequency of document d.

• This completes the "term frequency" part of the tf/idf formula.
• Let us look at this part through an example.
main example, part I
• Consider three documents
• 1: a b c a f o n l p o f t y x
• 2: a m o e e e n n n a n p l
• 3: r a e e f n l i f f f f x l
• First, look at the maximum frequency achieved by any term in a given document.

m_1 = 2 ("a", "f" and "o" are there twice)

m_2 = 4 ("n" is there four times)

m_3 = 5("f" is there five times)

main example part II
• Now look at some example of absolute term frequency

F_a_1 = 2 F_e_2 = 3 F_x_3 = 1

• and some examples of relative term frequency

f_a_1 = F_a_1 / m_1 = 2 / 2 = 1

f_e_2 = F_e_2 / m_2 = 3 / 4 = 0.75

f_x_3 = F_x_3 / m_3 = 1 / 5 = 0.2

inverse document frequency
• Let N be the number of documents in the datebase. N=3 in our example.
• Let n_t be the number of documents where the term t appears. In our example

n_a = 3 n_e = 2 n_x = 2

• N/n_t is an indication of inverse document frequency of a term. It is larger the less a term appears across documents in the database.
intermezzo: the logarithm
• The logarithm, written log() is a mathematical function. You should know that
• log() is an increasing function, i.e. the bigger is x, the bigger is log(x).
• log(1) = 0
• log(x) > 0 if x > 1
• Your calculator will tell you what the logarithm of a number is.
tf/idf formula
• Term frequency and inverse document frequency have to be combined.
• The final formula for the weight combines the terms as follows

w_t_d = f_t_d * log( N / n_t )

main example part III

N = 3

w_a_1 = 1 * log(3/3) = log(1) = 0 !

w_e_2 = 0.75 * log(3/2)

w_x_3 = 0.2 * log(3/2)

where log(3/2) = 0.176, approximately

practical operation
• The computer will search the documents for the query term and return the documents where the weight of term in the index for that document is strictly positive, by order of weights, highest to lowest.
• If there are several query terms the computer will perform a more complicated operation that we will not further study here, so we limit ourselves to the case of one query term.
practical tests
• You ask the computer to query the term "a" in our example. What documents are being returned?
• Compare with the result of the Boolean model.
• You ask the computer to query the term "e". What documents are being returned, and in what order?
• term weighting improves performance
• sorting is possible
• easy to compute, therefore fast
• results are difficult to improve without
• query expansion
• user feedback circle
ProQuest search targets
• ProQuest searches “citations” and “documents”.
• “citations” are description of documents such as author names, titles, journal etc.
• “documents” contain the full-text of documents.
• Target differences imply different behavior of an expression when matched against a candidate.
ProQuest search
• If you enter two search terms, they will be used as one phrase.
• If you use three term, they are searched to be appearing in proximity.
• You can force phrase interpretation by placing the search expressions into double quotes.
terms
• A search term is something you type and that has a meaning on its own.
• For example: house, or krichel.
• Terms have a regular expression interpretation.
regular expressions
• ‘*’ is used as a right-handed truncation character only; it will find all forms of a word.For example, searching for “econom*”.
• ‘?’ is used to replace any single character, either inside the word or the right end of the word. For example, searching for “wom?n”
• ‘?’ cannot be used to begin a word.
operators: and
• AND Find the words.
• When searching for keywords in "Citation and Document Text," AND finds documents in which the words occur in the same paragraph (within approx. 1000 characters) or the words appear in any citation field.
operator: and not, or
• “and not” is the same as “not” in Dialog.
• “or” is a normal Boolean or.
proximity operators
• W/numberFind documents where these words are within some number number of words apart (either before or after). Use when searching for keywords within "Citation and Document Text" or "Document Text."Example: computer W/3 careers
• NOT W/number does the opposite.
proximity operators
• W/PARA Finds documents where these words are within the same paragraph (within approx. 1000 characters). Use when searching for keywords within "Document Text."Example: internet W/PARA web
proximity operators
• W/DOC Find documents where all the words appear within the document text. Use W/DOC in place of AND when searching for keywords within "Citation and Document Text" or "Document Text" to retrieve more comprehensive results.Example: Internet W/DOC education
proximity operators
• PRE/number Find documents where the first word appears some number numberof words before the second word.
• Use when searching for keywords within "Citation and Document Text" or "Document Text."Example: world pre/3 web
field syntax
• It is possible to limit a search for a term to a field.
• This is done by writing field( term)
abstract
• ABS() search article abstracts for your terms.
• Examples:    ABS(customer delight)    ABS(ozone)
appendix

Classification code (ABI)
• Use Classification Codes when searching business topics. Classification Codes are a fast way to precisely target a search by topic, industry or market, geographical area, or article type.
• Examples:     CC(1120) for Economic Policy & Planning
• This only applies to a subset of data from ABI inform, which has these codes.
Coden
• This is use to search the coden index. A coden is an alphanumeric code used for shelving/ordering books and journals in libraries, often based on a publication’s title.
• Example:     CODEN(EDUSBI)

• Comes with LCO({}) option for full matches.
publication date
• PDN() searches the publication date in numeric format (mm/dd/yyyy).
• You can use the < and > signs to indicate dates before and after a date, or between specific dates.
• For example, PDN(>1/1/2002) AND PDN(<1/5/2002) will find results from publications with numeric dates between January 1 2002 and January 5 2002.
dateline
• DLN() searches article Datelines. The dateline occurs frequently in newspapers, just after the article title, giving the date and place of the articles origin. You can use Boolean, proximity and truncation operators.
•  DLN(lebanon pre/1 ohio)
