Result Grouping allows to put documents with a common field value into groups. For each group the most relevant documents are returned.
An example is a search in an online store for a common term such as DVD, showing the top 3 results for each category ("TVs & Video", "Movies", "Computers", etc).
The most common use case is to group results by their type, like news, products, images, ... Each group's results are sorted by relevance.
