Abstract

Traditionally, natural language processing techniques for information retrieval have always been studied outside the framework of formal models of information retrieval. In this article, we introduce a new formal model of information retrieval based on the application of statistical language models. Simple natural language processing techniques that are often used for information retrieval ± we give an introductory overview of these techniques in Section 2 ± can be modeled by the new language modeling approach.
