Subject SweetSpotSimilarity
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2012 14:40:26 GMT

I have a noobie question. I am trying to use the SweetSpotSimilarity (SSS) class.

I understand the scoring behavior of Lucene

And I am aware that SweetSpotSimilarity resulted from this paper

However, I was wondering if there was a resource that explained (and gave examples) of how
SSS works and what each parameter (hyperbolic, etc) means. I know this is a Lucene list but
I am actually trying to use SSS in solr. I am aware of SOLR-1365 patch that makes configuring
SSS easier (in the schema.xml)

but I am having trouble understanding what some of the 13 parameters are and how they map
to SSS. 

Thank you
