On Deriving Design Equations for Information Retrieval Systems
Cooper, William S.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 21, 6, 385-395, Nov-Dec '70
Design equations are derived for three types of retrieval systems. The equation in each case shows the relationship between expected search length, used as a performance measure, and certain system characteristics having to do with the distribution of index terms over the document collection and the number of errors in the search requests.
