This ebook takes a different method of info retrieval by way of laying down the rules for a latest algebra of data retrieval in keeping with lattice idea. All significant retrieval equipment built thus far are defined intimately – Boolean, Vector house and probabilistic tools, but in addition net retrieval algorithms like PageRank, HITS, and SALSA – and the writer exhibits that all of them could be handled elegantly in a unified formal manner, utilizing lattice idea because the one simple proposal.

Sample text

You can now think of Ϫ5 in two ways: as negative 5 and as the opposite of 5. Using the same idea, we can write the opposite of a negative number. The opposite of Ϫ3 is Ϫ(Ϫ3). Since we know from looking at the number line that the opposite of Ϫ3 is 3, this means that Ϫ(Ϫ3) ϭ 3 So the opposite of a negative number must be positive. We summarize our results: Property The Opposite of a Real Number 1. The opposite of a positive number is negative. 2. The opposite of a negative number is positive. 3.
