Book Description

This book is ideal for introductory information retrieval courses at the undergraduate and graduate level in computer science, information science and computer engineering departments. It is also a valuable tool for search engine and information retrieval professionals.

Written by a leader in the field of information retrieval, it is designed to give undergraduate students the understanding and tools they need to evaluate, compare and modify search engines. Coverage of the underlying IR and mathematical models reinforce key concepts.

The book's numerous programming exercises make extensive use of Galago, a Java-based open source search engine.
