TF-IDF Calculator Implemented in Java

In this tutorial i will show you how to implement the TF-IDF Algorithm in Java, TF-IDF stands for Term Frequency-Inverse Document Frequency, this algorithm is highly used in Text Mining to convert text inputs into a vector that contains weight of each term in each document.


TF(t,d) = Term Frequency(t,d): is the number of times that term t occurs in document d.

IDF(t,D) = Inverse Term Frequency(t,D)measures the importance of term in all documents (D), we obtain this measure by dividing the total number of documents by the number of documents containing the term, and then taking the logarithm of that quotient.

$latex IDF(t,D) = log_2{frac{N}{DF}}$

where N is the number of documents in the collection, and DF is the number of documents in which the term appears.

Finally, the weight is obtained by multiplying the two measures:

TF-IDF(t,d) = TF(t,d) * IDF(t,D) = Term Frequency(t,d) * Inverse…
