Hyperdocuments as automata: verification of trace-based browsing properties by model checking
P. David Stotts, Richard Furuta, Cyrano Ruiz Cabarrus
Pages: 1-30
DOI: 10.1145/267954.267955
We present a view of hyperdocuments in which each document encodes its own browsing semantics in its links. This requires a mental shift in how a hyperdocument is thought of abstractly. Instead of treating the links of a document as defining a...

Evaluation of an algorithm for finding a match of a distorted texture pattern in a large image database
N. Vujovic, D. Brzakovic
Pages: 31-60
DOI: 10.1145/267954.267956
Evaluation of an algorithm for finding a match for a random texture pattern in a large image database is presented. The algorithm was designed assuming that the random pattern may be subject to misregistration relative to its representation in...

Corpus-based stemming using cooccurrence of word variants
Jinxi Xu, W. Bruce Croft
Pages: 61-81
DOI: 10.1145/267954.267957
Stemming is used in many information retrieval (IR) systems to reduce variant word forms to common roots. It is one of the simplest applications of natural-language processing to IR and is one of the most effective in terms of user acceptance...

Electronic mail as a coalition-building information technology
Celia T. Romm, Nava Pliskin
Pages: 82-100
DOI: 10.1145/267954.267958
One of the most intriguing lines of research within the literature on diffusion of information technologies (IT) is the study of the power and politics of this process. The major objective of this article is to build on the work of Kling and...
