  • Publication number: 20140317096
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method of searching for patent-related documents stored in a document corpus include receiving, by a computing device, a search query comprising a first term and a second term, wherein the search query indicates that the first term is an equivalent of the second term, searching the document corpus for patent-related documents wherein the first term is used interchangeably with the second term, and preparing for display a list of one or more patent-related documents. In yet another embodiment, a method of searching a parts thesaurus, includes receiving, by a computing device, a search query including a search term, and searching the parts thesaurus for term variants of the search term. The method further includes preparing for display term variants of the search term found in the parts thesaurus.

  • Patent number: 5771378
    Abstract: An associative text search and retrieval system uses one or more front end processors to interacting with a network having one or more user terminals connected thereto to allow a user to provide information to the system and receive information from the system. The system also includes storage for a plurality of text documents, and at least one processor, coupled to the front end processors and the document storage. The processor(s) search the text documents according to a search request provided by the user and provide to the front end processor a predetermined number of retrieved documents containing at least one term of the search request. The retrieved documents have higher ranks than documents not provided to the front end processor. The ranks are calculated using a formula that varies according to the square of the frequency in each of the text documents of each of the search terms.
