Doing research for math and computer science: in the library and on the Internet (a presentation) Tuesday, 23 May 2006 4:23 pmPosted by Dongmei in computer science, Library Instruction, mathematics.
Amy in the Math Dept. asked me if I could do a presentation for her research group which includes two graduate students, three undergraduate students ( I knew Amy from the New Faculty Orientation, we both came to CofC last summer). I asked what kind of research they will be doing, it seems that they'll study a lot in between math and computer science, general topics are text mining, information retrieval, esp. Web information retrieval (to be more specific, Fiedler vector, Spectral graph partitioning, PageRank — mathematics of, vector space model, latent semantic indexing). We chatted and after much preparation, this is the presentation that I came up with. I also put together a resource page for the group.
Here is the presentation (http://www.cofc.edu/~caod/present4amy.ppt), you should be able to download to your PC or open it in a browser. Here is the resource page (http://www.cofc.edu/~caod/resources_guide4amy.html).
I learned (or reinforced) quite a few things during the preparation for this presentation, I hope you too :-).
