Siegfried, Susan L.; Bernstein, Julie
Computers and the Humanities, v25 n4 p211-26 Aug 1991
Describes "Synoname," the Getty Museum's computer program that matches varying versions of personal names for research purposes. Reports that the program uses an ordered algorithm sequence for pattern matching that includes both character- and word-matching techniques. Concludes that the technique can approach near-total accuracy at the expense of efficiency. (SG)
