Abstract : This report discusses the work performed on the project to investigate the techniques and concepts of information retrieval and to formulate and develop a general theory of information retrieval. The formalization of this theory is oriented to the automation of large-capacity information storage and retrieval systems. This theoretical framework will be the basis for the use of general purpose stored-program digital computer systems to perform the storage and retrieval functions. (Author)
