I'm evaluating a few retrieval models using the 11-point Interpolated precision x recall curve (here is a description of the protocol I've been using: https://nlp.stanford.edu/IR-book/html/htmledition/evaluation-of-ranked-retrieval-results-1.html) evaluated for the Top-k. The problem is, some queries have no relevants within the Top-k. As such, I'm having issues computing the recall, and therefore the 11-point interpolated curve.

I'm leaning towards setting all values of interpolated precision as 0.0, with exception of Recall = 0.0, which should have an interpolated precision of 1.0. Is this the correct way to do it?
