FUZZY INTERVAL NUMBER (FIN) TECHNIQUES FOR CROSS LANGUAGE INFORMATION RETRIEVAL

Catherine Marinagi, Theodoros Alevizos, Vassilis G. Kaburlasos, Christos Skourlas

Abstract

A new method to handle problems of Information Retrieval (IR) and related applications is proposed. The method is based on Fuzzy Interval Numbers (FINs) introduced in fuzzy system applications. Definition, interpretation and a computation algorithm of FINs are presented. The frame of use FINs in IR is given. An experiment showing the anticipated importance of these techniques in Cross Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) is presented.
