The evaluation of an implication by Imaging is a logical technique developed in the framework of modal logic. Its interpretation in the context of a “possible worlds” semantics is very appealing for IR. In 1994, Crestani and Van Rijsbergen proposed an interpretation of Imaging in the context of IR based on the assumption that “a term is a possibleworld”. This approach enables the exploitation of term– term relationshipswhich are estimated using an information theoretic measure. Recent analysis of the probability kinematics of Logical Imaging in IR have suggested that this technique has some interesting sense resolution properties. In this paper we will present this new line of research and we will relate it to more classical research into word senses.
