Abstract

The use of term co-occurrence information has a long history in information retrieval (IR). The aim is to exploit potential semantic relationships between terms that appear in the same documents. These are used to derive a structure either on the document collection (e.g. clustering) or on the terms (e.g. automatic thesaurus construction). An alternative approach is to use these relationships for relevance feedback.
