Abstract

A new searchable data structure on the Internet is presented, which can be defined with maximized information density for maximal efficiency of information transport. For this purpose, the new basic information carrier "URL (of standardized online definition) plus number sequence" is introduced. It is called "Domain Vector" (DV). The online definition defines a "Domain Space" (DS) in a standardized (machine-readable) way. This DS is a metric space whose elements are the DVs. A DV can precisely represent any definable information, from a simple word to complex multidimensional information, e.g., in science, medicine, industry, or economy. DVs may be defined by anybody, and the definition can be optimized as required by the application. If the length of the URL is minimized (e.g. using a short local substitute), DVs contain only necessary data (numbers) to enable maximal information density. They are internationally uniformly defined and identified (by the URL), and searchable according to user-defined criteria. This way, the proposed data structure fulfills the intended requirements. The online implementation http://numericsearch.com demonstrates examples and shows searchability.
