Tip: Understanding Rank

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you do a search, you can sort the results bibliographically alphabetical or by “rank”. What is Rank?

Rank refers to the search engine’s “best guess” as to the relevance of the result to the search you specified. The exact method of ranking used varies a bit depending on the search. In its most basic level, when you specify a single search term, rank looks at the density of the matches for the word in the document, and how close to the beginning of the document they appear as a measure of importance to the paper’s topic. The documents with the most matches and where the term is deemed to have the most importance, have the highest “relevance” and are ranked first (presented first).

When you specify more than one term to appear anywhere in the article, the method is similar, but the search engine looks at how many of those terms appear, and how close together they appear, how close to the beginning of the document, and can even take into account the relative rarity of the search terms and their density in the retrieved file, where infrequent terms count more heavily than common terms.

To see a simple example of this, search for the words (not the phrase, so no quotes):

unconscious communications

Look at the density of matches in each document on the first page of the hits. Then go to the last page of matched documents, and observe the density of matches within the documents.

A more complex search illustrates this nicely with a single page and only 15 matches:

counter*tr* w/25 “liv* out” w/25 enact*

There are a lot of word forms and variants of the words (due to the * wildcards) above that can match, but the proximity (w/25) clause limits the potential for matching. What’s interesting here though is how easily you can see the match density decrease as you view down the short list.

The end result of selecting order by rank is that the search engine’s best “guess” as to which articles are more relevant appear higher on the list than less relevant articles.

INTRODUCTION

La relation psychanalytique selon les différents courants analytiques

Michèle Van Lysebeth

INTRODUCTION

Trois types d “expériences sont à l'origine de mon intérêt pour la relation analytique:

1° La lecture des oeuvres de Robert LANGS, psychanalyste américain profondément original, qui a révolutionné la technique, en proposant un nouveau type d “écoute, qui tient mieux compte de l'interaction qui se noue, dans le hic et nunc, entre analyste et analysant.

2° Mon intérêt pour l'évolution de la technique kleinienne. Le post-kleinisme s “avère davantage marqué par la pensée de BION que par celle de M, KLEIN. l'évolution technique se traduit essentiellement par l'importance prépondérante des interprétations centrées sur le hic et nunc de la relation émotionnelle qui lie patient et analyste.

Les convergences nombreuses existant entre les recherches de LANGS et celle des post-kleiniens, n “ont pas manqué de m “interpeller. Il est toujours particulièrement intéressant d “observer des points de rencontre entre des courants analytiques différents.

3° Le séminaire de théorie de la technique auquel je participe depuis plus de deux ans avec Jacqueline et Maurice HABER (). Si au départ nous nous interrogions sur les paramètres qui rendent une interprétation opérante et mutative, nous en sommes venus insensiblement et comme tout naturellement, à nous centrer sur les interprétations de la relation analytique, celles-ci nous semblant jouir d “un potentiel mobilisateur particulièrement remarquable.

TENTATIVE DE DEFINITION DE LA RELATION ANALYTIQUE

A tout moment de la cure, trois types de relations différentes peuvent s “observer : la relation transférentielle, la relation analytique et la relation au sens courant du terme.
