Document analysis and Textual philology: A Formal Perspective
AbstractWe introduce a formal approach to document and text analysis. The method proposed herein results in a mathemat- ical model/framework which can formalize different challenges in research fields such as computational linguistics, digital philology, and software engineering, principally if applied to document and text analysis. We examine texts and documents from an evolutionary perspective, where both corruption and correction are involved. We describe document evolution via fibre bundles formalism. We also provide other examples to demonstrate the capabilities of the model.
