5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource on information retrieval., 24 Oct. 2013
A well written book on the topic of information retrieval by respected authors with over 50 years experience between them. The book assumes the reader has some understanding of statistics and discrete mathematics and is targeted at graduates and/or working professionals in the area of computer science or software engineering. The book is well organised and dependencies between chapters are clearly stated, the content is broadly organised into an introduction, followed by sections on indexing, retrieval and evaluation. The section on evaluation in particular is excellent, covering both techniques for measuring search quality with a in depth discussion on using statistics in evaluation, and a survey of methods for measuring search performance, the inclusion of queuing theory is a bonus! Overall this is a great resource on Information Retrieval, a book I am sure to keep revisiting.
