Gordon, Michael D.
Information Processing and Management, v27 n1 p27-41 1991
Presents a theoretical rationale for employing a form of information retrieval algorithm that helps searchers better navigate through large document collections by continually revising probability estimates for document subsets. The algorithm avoids assumptions of index term independence and predicts relevance more accurately with increasing feedback. (nine references) (Author/SD)
