Download e-book for kindle: The modern algebra of information retrieval by Sándor Dominich

This publication takes a distinct method of info retrieval by means of laying down the principles for a contemporary algebra of knowledge retrieval in response to lattice thought. All significant retrieval equipment built thus far are defined intimately – Boolean, Vector area and probabilistic equipment, but in addition internet retrieval algorithms like PageRank, HITS, and SALSA – and the writer exhibits that all of them may be handled elegantly in a unified formal means, utilizing lattice concept because the one simple idea.

47, 66). , 47). He states explicitly that in the book Vita Josephii Josephus was “sloppy”: “If BJ is Josephus’ most polished work, V is his roughest. , 110). 95 After defining the relevant sources, the researcher must deal with the description in the literature of the Sages, both about the Sadducees and about the Pharisees, that does not match the descriptions of Josephus. The literature of the Sages is inconsistent in using the term “Pharisees,” mainly due to the use of the same term to name groups that are clearly not identical.

73 See for example his discussion of the circumstances that led to the appointment of Jews and rebelling Christians to serve in the courts: “Reliable servants of power become especially useful in periods of social transformation” (L. A. Coser, Greedy Institutions . , 33). 16 chapter one Coser’s approach will accompany this study in the differentiation of groups and in predicting the differences between the Jewish groups in the Second Temple period. The advantage of Coser’s system is in linking the types of group to the concrete behaviors of group members, and also the explicit link between greedy institutions and lack of access to power.

81 Philo, one of the earliest of the authors, lived decades after the end of the Hasmonean period. Josephus, who describes the Hasmonean period in detail, wrote after the destruction of the Temple. This is also true of the editing of the literature of the Sages and the Christian literature and other sources, all of which are decades or centuries later than the events themselves. Thus, most of the sources regarding the Jewish groups during the Hasmonean period are later than the period under discussion, and this may undermine the validity of the sources’ descriptions of the earlier period.
