Jaccard Similarity Leads to the Marczewski-Steinhaus Topology for Information Retrieval.
Rousseau, Ronald
Information Processing & Management, v34 n1 p87-94 Jan 1998
Demonstrates that if the similarity function of a retrieval system leads to a (pseudo-) metric, the retrieval, similarity and Everett-Cater metric topology coincide and are different from the discrete topology; this is the case if documents are represented by lists, using the Jaccard similarity measure. The corresponding metric is the Marczewski-Steinhaus. A one-element query space consisting of a single-item query is studied. (Author/AEF)
