For the 2005 Terabyte track in TREC Dublin City University participated in all three tasks: Adhoc, E±ciency and Named Page Finding. Our runs for TREC in all tasks were primarily focussed on the application of "Top Subset Retrieval" to the Terabyte Track. This retrieval utilises different types of sorted inverted indices so that less documents are processed in order to reduce query times, and is done so in a way that minimises loss of effectiveness in terms of query precision. We also compare a distributed version of our Físréal search system [1][2] against the same system deployed on a single machine.
