Three conditions are compared: bm25b (default parameters), bm25* (optimized parameters), and pmra* (optimized parameters). Each column represents a x vs. y comparison, where the figures indicate the relative improvements of x over y. In general, we see that the differences between optimized and default bm25 are not statistically significant, whereas the differences between pmra and bm25 are.
