Trends In...A Critical Review. On the Role of Logic in Information Retrieval.
Sebastiani, Fabrizio
Information Processing & Management, v34 n1 p1-18 Jan 1998
Examines central issues in the application of logic to information retrieval (IR). Discusses the logical relationship between document and need; implications of models based on truth, validity, or logical consequentiality, and the relationship between this issue and the issue of partiality versus totality of information; and the relationship between the paradoxes of material implication and the "(in)adequacy" of classical logic for IR modelling.
