Abstract : The assumptions, logic, and operations of an Information Retrieval System simulation model are described in this report. The model has been programmed in FORTRAN II for the IBM 1620. Two model variations, input and output examples, and some possibilities for improvement and development are given. Data reduction and analysis programs, operating upon the output of the simulation model, are explained and a set of sample outputs for these programs are given. Also included are listings of the latest programs developed.
