Abstract : Study of the possibilities of mechanized indexing leads to the question of what characteristics indexing ought to have, by whatever means it is produced. This leads in turn to some questions about the whole process of subject document retrieval (retrieval of documents about a speci fied subject). Discussion of these latter questions can be carried some way at a more general level. Thus in the present report, and in some successors, there will be no explicit reference to subject document retrieval, although it will be the application of ultimate interest. (Author)
