This is the first book to offer a clear, comprehensive view of Information Representation and Retrieval (IRR). With an emphasis on principles and fundamentals, author Heting Chu first reviews key concepts and major developmental stages of the field, then systematically examines information representation methods, IRR languages, retrieval techniques and models, and Internet retrieval systems. Chu dis cusses the retrieval of multilingual, multimedia, and hyper-structured information, explores the user dimension and evaluation issues, and analyzes the role and potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in IRR. Chu's thoroughly researched monograph is an indispensable guide for the individual who needs broad and current knowledge of this rapidly growing field.
