Bookstein, Abraham; Raita, T.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n6 p476-86 Apr 2001
Examines consequences for information control of the tendency of occurrences of content-bearing terms to appear together, or clump. Properties of previously defined clumping measures are reviewed and extended, and significance of these measures for devising retrieval strategies discussed. A new type of clumping measure, which extends the earlier measures by permitting gaps within a clump is defined, and several variants are examined. (Author/AEF)
