This paper introduces the combination of query fusion and relevance feedback methods.By analyzing previous TopN documents selection strategy, it puts forward a query fusion algorithm using correlation coefficient to select a variable number of TopN documents in order to extend query, which is called variable TopN feedback-based query fusion algorithm. Fixed and variable TopN query fusion experiments are analyzed separately, and the test results show that the variable TopN feedback method improves the retrieval performance to some extent.

Key wordsQuery fusion      Relevance feedback      Correlation coefficient      Meta-search engine
