Spectral Composition of Semantic Spaces

Abstract [en]

Spectral theory in mathematics is key to the success of as diverse application domains as quantum mechanics and latent semantic indexing, both relying on eigenvalue decomposition for the localization of their respective entities in observation space. This points at some implicit \energy" inherent in semantics and in need of quanti cation. We show how the structure of atomic emission spectra, and meaning in concept space, go back to the same compositional principle, plus propose a tentative solution for the computation of term, document and collection \energy" content.
