Retrieval Testing with Hypergeometric Document Models.
Wilbur, W. John
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v44 n6 p340-51 Jul 1993
Presents a method of modeling the relevance relationship in information retrieval to answer the question of the theoretical limits of certain statistical methods. Hypergeometric probability distribution is used to construct an abstract model of a database of MEDLINE records, and results of tests of vector retrieval methods are reported. (28 references) (EAM)
