The front-end translates the user queries into (native) subsuming queries that are supported by the target systems but that may return extra documents.
Thus, the subsuming query (written in Folio's syntax) sent to Folio-Inspec is Subsuming Query: [Q.sup.S] = Find Title multiprocessor AND distributed AND system.
The subsuming query will return a preliminary result set that is a superset of what the user expects.
Subsuming Query: Title Contains gone (W) with (W) the (W) wind
Subsuming Query: Title Contains gone (2W) wind (or gone (2W) wind/Ti, in Dialog syntax)
We have developed the algorithms that generate minimal subsuming and filter queries for this type of queries [Chang et al.
Our goal thus is to transform the input query tree Q into its minimal subsuming query [Q.sup.S].
As Example 4.1 suggests, we need different subsuming forms for positive and negative predicates.
--A query [P.sup.S] is the positive subsuming form of the predicate P with respect to the target system T, if [P.sup.S] minimally subsumes P with respect to T.
--A query [P.sup.-] is the negative subsuming form of the predicate P with respect to the target system T, if ??[P.sup.-] minimally subsumes ??P with respect to T.
In some extreme cases, there may not exist nontrivial rewritings for either positive or negative subsuming forms.
No longer capable of maintaining its object at the remove of representation, seeing grasplit so greedily as to absorb it into the opacity of the perceiving body itself--thus subsuming sight within a broader field of fundamentally tactile prehension.
