MathDL | The Linear Algebra Behind Search Engines ... yessiree there are some fine documents to be had!

"The Information Age has flooded readers with information. However, these gains in the amount of information available are useless without parallel gains in techniques for effectively storing and searching through such information. Consider the following facts:
  • In 2001, there were about 250,000 periodicals published in print worldwide, with roughly 12,000 added each year (Ulrich's Directory, 2001).
  • In 2000, there were nearly 3.5 million books in print (Books in Print, 2001).
  • The number of books in top libraries doubles every 14 years (Wurman, 1989).
  • In 2000, there were about 2.5 billion web pages on the Internet, with a growth rate of 7.3 million per day (Lyman & Varian, 2000).
  • "
    (Regretable that the stats are not fresh.)
