I have a ranked list (series) of documents. I want to divide it into some buckets.
For example, if I represent a document with a number and have the list [2, 8, 3, 1, 4, 9, 5, 7] and I want to divide it into three buckets I can have , [8, 3, 1, 4], [9, 5, 7]. Note that the order is preserved.
What should I call this process? Is it chunking the list into some buckets? or is it segementing it into some buckets? or splitting into some buckets? or dividing into some buckets? or ...
I need it for a paper, and thus want the most formal and natural word.
