Output

A network file with all documents connected by a weighted edge as calculated by the comparison algorithm if the weight of the was above the threshold value.

Usage Hints

The Cosine Similarity comparison algorithm does not preform any real comparison between the terms. It only uses the existence or nonexistence of a term in the set for the calculation.

Implementation Details

The Cosine Similarity comparison algorithm does not preform any real comparison between the terms. It only uses the existence or nonexistence of a term in the set for the calculation.

The network file has the following node and edge properties:
