Viatcheslav Yatsko, the Head of the CLL, Doctor of Science, Full Professor is the author of a number of scientific papers and monographs. His main contributions include:

  • Bradford's law interpretation in terms of geometric progression (Y-law). This interpretation can be effectively used to compute threshold values in case it is necessary to distinguish subsets within a set of objects (e.g. successful/unsuccessful applicants, developed/underdeveloped regions, etc.). See [21] in "Publications" section.
  • The methodology of zonal-correlational analysis based on Y-law. The methodology can be used for purposes of automatic text classification.
  • Symmetric term-weighting technique, which allows creating coherent summaries [2]. This technique underlies the functioning of UNIS and ETS summarizers.
  • Depth of user search conception for assessemnt of Internet information retrieval systems [5].
  • Ontology for opinion mining [19].
  • Methodology for assessment of summaries' quality based on matching against a reference dictionary extracted from the source text [10].
  • Y-stemmer based on lists of suffixes and endings correlated with certain parts-of-speech [16;20]. All algorithms for software available on this web site were created by V.Yatsko.
  • Componential-predication analysis, a methodology for linguistic research [26].
  • Original classification of modi based on the conception of alienated knowledge (Yatsko, V.A. Logical-semantic aspects of the concept of alienated knowledge. In: Automatic Documentation and Mathematical Linguistics. 1993, VOL.27, N 4. ALLERTON PRESS INC).
  • Compositional modeling, a methodology for modeling academic texts' logical and semantic structure [6;23].
  • An original conception of historical development of computer science, which distinguishes between its mathematic, technological, and linguistic foundations [42].
