LSA is a variant of the vector space model that converts a representative sample of documents to a term-by-document matrix in which each cell indicates the frequency with which each term (rows) occurs in each document (columns). Thus a document becomes a column vector and can be compared with a user's query represented as a vector of the same dimension. In the case of digital libraries, terms may stand for words in abstracts or titles, author names, or cited references.
