No eBook available Elsevier. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. It’s required reading for our search gurus at Infoseek. The authors have done an outstanding job of incorporating and describing the most significant new research in information retrieval over the past five years into this second edition.
If you care about search engines, you need this book: The book is both detailed and enjoyable; the authors have combined elegant writing with top-grade programming. Students, researchers, and practitioners will all benefit from reading this book.
Whatever your field, if you work with gigabbytes quantities of information, this book is essential reading–an authoritative theoretical resource and a practical guide to meeting the toughest figabytes and access challenges. It covers the latest developments in compression and indexing and their application on the Web and in digital libraries. It also details dozens of powerful techniques supported by mg, the authors’ own system for compressing, storing, and retrieving text, images, and textual images.
The use of compression in storing the text, integers, lexicon and inverted list is detailed beautifully.
This is the only book there is that will actually teach you how to build an information retrieval system aka search engine. It discusses all the algorithms and tradeoffs, and comes with free downloadable source code to experiment with.
Some of the material is standard, but covered in more implementation detail here than anywhere else. Some of the material is novel: But with “Managing Gigabytes”, it’s all here.
Mznaging, after a particularly envigorating discussion of how to string together a bunch of techniques to compress their corpus and save a couple MB, I did a check and found you could buy MB of RAM for less than the cost of the book.
Knowledge is Power, but sometimes a little cash is more powerful.
RAM and disk are cheap, but not that cheap, and for now terabytes and sometimes petabytes are managed only by NASA, Google, and a few others. I can’t wait to see the third edition!
