Abstract : The report discusses computer experiments performed on an unclassified file of 4,000 documents from the Air Force Office of Aerospace Research. The computer algorithm being tested is one which generates a library classification automatically given the coordinate indexed document descriptions. The report also discusses an implementation of a random access IS and R system which is designed to utilize this classification for the optimization of mass memory allocation. (Author)
