Boughanem, M.; Christment, C.; Tamine, L.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v53 n11 p934-42 Sep 2002
Presents a genetic relevance optimization process performed in an information retrieval system that uses genetic techniques for solving multimodal problems (niching) and query reformulation techniques. Explains that the niching technique allows the process to reach different relevance regions of the document space, and that query reformulations represent domain knowledge. (Author/LRW)
