This research was supported by the National Science Foundation, the Air
Scientific Research and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center under grant
AFOSR-82-0303 and NAS-25764 respectively.
This Ph.D. thesis was never published. However, various parts of it are
variously accessible. A version of the first half can be found in:
- Trigg, R. H., &
Weiser, M. (1986). TEXTNET: A Network-Based Approach to Text Handling.
ACM Transactions on Office Information Systems, 4(1), 1-23.
In addition, I put up in HTML the table
of contents as well as the thesis's most popular chapter,
"A taxonomy of link types", for
which I still receive requests. Mark Bernstein of
Eastgate has written a very
of that chapter.
