Definition

α- nDCG is a variant of Normalised Discounted Cumulative Gain (nDCG). It is an evaluation measure for diversified search, where it is assumed that a topic q has multiple possible intents { i}, and that intent probabilities Pr( i| q) and per-intent relevance assessments are available. For a given diversified ranked list, let I i( r) = 1 if the document at rank r is relevant to intent i and let I i( r) = 0 otherwise; let \(C_{i}(r)=\sum _{k=1}^{r}I_{i}(k)\)
