Earlier this morning Dr. Garcia sent me a link to his new paper – Term Weights in a MySQL Environment.

Dr. Garcia explains how MySQL implements Vector Spaces in their full-text searches. The paper covers the math behind MySQL’s Full-Text search and the equation’s relation to local weights, gloabl weights, and normalized weights.

I’d recommend reading MySQL’s document after reading Dr. Garcia’s.
