This text provides an introduction to the maximum entropy principle and the construction of maximum entropy models for natural language processing. We investigate the implementation of maximum entropy models for attribute-value grammars.
by Dan Jurafsky, James H. Martin - Stanford University
This text takes an empirical approach to the subject, based on applying statistical and machine-learning algorithms to large corporations. The authors describe a unified vision of speech and language processing. Emphasis is on practical applications.

A concise introduction to logic programming and the logic-programming language Prolog both as vehicles for understanding elementary computational linguistics and as tools for implementing the basic components of natural-language-processing systems.
by A. L. Berger, S. A. Della Pietra, V. J. Della Pietra - Association for Computational Linguistics
The authors describe a method for statistical modeling based on maximum entropy. They present a maximum-likelihood approach for automatically constructing maximum entropy models and describe how to implement this approach efficiently.
