## What is term frequency vector?

It is often used to measure document similarity in text analysis. A document can be represented by thousands of attributes, each recording the frequency of a particular word (such as a keyword) or phrase in the document. Thus, each document is an object represented by what is called a term-frequency vector.

**What is term frequency formula?**

Term frequency (TF) means how often a term occurs in a document. To reduce this effect, term frequency is often divided by the total number of terms in the document as a way of normalization. TF(t) = (Number of times term t appears in a document) / (Total number of terms in the document).

**How is IDF calculated?**

the number of times a word appears in a document, divided by the total number of words in that document; the second term is the Inverse Document Frequency (IDF), computed as the logarithm of the number of the documents in the corpus divided by the number of documents where the specific term appears.

### Why is log used in IDF?

Why is log used when calculating term frequency weight and IDF, inverse document frequency? The formula for IDF is log( N / df t ) instead of just N / df t. Where N = total documents in collection, and df t = document frequency of term t. Log is said to be used because it “dampens” the effect of IDF.

**What is the TF-IDF value?**

TF-IDF is a popular approach used to weigh terms for NLP tasks because it assigns a value to a term according to its importance in a document scaled by its importance across all documents in your corpus, which mathematically eliminates naturally occurring words in the English language, and selects words that are more …

**Is TF-IDF a vector?**

Term Frequency — Inverse Document Frequency (TFIDF) After applying TFIDF, text in A and B documents can be represented as a TFIDF vector of dimension equal to the vocabulary words. The value corresponding to each word represents the importance of that word in a particular document.

## Why we use TF-IDF?

**What is TF-IDF Vectorizer?**

TF-IDF is an abbreviation for Term Frequency Inverse Document Frequency. This is very common algorithm to transform text into a meaningful representation of numbers which is used to fit machine algorithm for prediction.

**What is IDF NLP?**

### Why do as Take inverse document frequency and why do we apply log for IDF computation?

4 -Inverse Document Frequency(IDF): Thus we need to weigh down the frequent terms while scale up the rare ones, by computing IDF, an inverse document frequency factor is incorporated which diminishes the weight of terms that occur very frequently in the document set and increases the weight of terms that occur rarely.
