Zhang, Jin; Rasmussen, Edie M.
Information Processing & Management, v37 n2 p279-94 Mar 2001
Compares two similarity measures for information retrieval in a document vector space, the distance-based and the angle-based, and presents a newly developed similarity measure based on both the distance and angle strengths of two compared objects. Introduces the concept of the iso-extent contour and then compares all three similarity measures. (Author/LRW)
