Subject Normalization Techniques
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2005 00:35:26 GMT
Hi.  I’m working on a project to compare various normalization techniques
and want to make sure that I understand the code before I begin making
changes.  It appears that while the tf’s are being stored in DocumentWriter,
the actual normalization (and boosting) is calculated in
BooleanQuery.sumOfSquaredWeights.  If I make changes here, it would not be
necessary to make any changes elsewhere (such as in the TermFreqVector). Am I
reading this correctly?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer.
