We’re drowning in a glut of information–how can we organize it all and present it in meaningful ways? Information Storage and Retrieval explores every facet of this complex problem facing programmers and system designers.

Robert Korfhage addresses different components of the problem; for example, in addressing querying, he explores not just the familiar Boolean-logic queries but also vector queries, weighted queries, fuzzy queries, and probabilistic queries. The book also discusses techniques for determining the similarity of two documents, methods for incorporating user profiles into queries, and nontraditional ways of presenting query results.
