A note on measuring overlap

  • Leo Egghe
  • Marc Goovaerts

abstract:

In measuring the overlap between two sets A and B (e.g. libraries, databases) one is obliged to calculate the overlap O(A|B) of A with respect to B (i.e. the fraction of elements of B that are also in A) and of O(B|A) of B with respect to A (i.e. the fraction of elements in A that are also in B). Theoretically this requires two samples. In this paper we explain that one sample can suffice to determine confidence intervals for both O(A|B) and O(B|A). The paper closes with the example of measuring the overlap between the secondary sources in mathematics MathSciNet and Zentralblatt MATH and with a remark on the estimation of the Jaccard index.

Placement process is one of the vital stages in physical design. In this stage, modules and elements of circuit are placed in distinct locations according to optimization basis. So that, each placement process tries to influence on one or more optimization factor. In the other hand, it can be told unequivocally that FPGA is one of the most important and applicable devices in our electronic worl...

Abstract of spoken word recognition is proposed. This model is particularly concerned with extraction of cues from the signal leading to a specification of a word in terms of bundles of distinctive features, which are assumed to be the building blocks of words. In the model proposed, auditory input is chunked into a set of successive time slices. It is assumed that the derivation of the underly...

This paper presents experimental analysis of wheeled mobile robots. Mathematical modelling of the mobile robot is presented. The mobile robots consist of an omni-directional and three differential drive mobile robots are tested and moved in given trajectories and the systematic errors of the robots are determined. A new method for omni-direction mobile robot was introduced in which the robot wa...

For efficient use of water, accurate measurement of flow in (field/laboratory) channels is required for many water resource projects. The present work is aimed to study the flow characteristics of a twin plate weir (two sharp-crested plates are placed one behind the other at some distance) under free and submerged flow conditions. Experiments are performed with four spacing of the twin plate we...
