Using data merging techniques for generating multidocument summarizations

In this paper, we examine how we can use data merging techniques to summarize a set of coreferent documents that has been clustered while using soft computing techniques. The main focus of this paper lies on the f(beta)-optimal merge function (a …

Comparing fbeta-optimal with distance based merge functions

Merge functions informally combine information from a certain universe into a solution over that same universe. This typically results in a, preferably optimal, summarization. In previous research, merge functions over sets have been looked into …

A possibilistic view on set and multiset comparison

Comparative evaluation operators for sets and multisets are proposed from a possibilistic point of view. In general, an evaluator estimates the possibility of (non) co-reference of two arbitrary (sub)-objects. Such operators can be used in a …

Comparison of sets and multisets

The comparison of sets of objects is a research topic with applications in diverse fields such as computer science, biology and psychology. Since the introduction of the Jaccard index, many techniques have been proposed. This paper aims at extending …
