%X Centroid terms are single words that semantically and
topically characterise text documents and so may serve as their
very compact representation in automatic text processing. In the
present paper, centroids are used to measure the relevance of text
documents with respect to a given search query. Thus, a new graphbased
paradigm for searching texts in large corpora is proposed
and evaluated against keyword-based methods. The first, promising
experimental results demonstrate the usefulness of the centroid-based
search procedure. It is shown that especially the routing of search
queries in interactive and decentralised search systems can be greatly
improved by applying this approach. A detailed discussion on further
fields of its application completes this contribution.
