The Mathematics & Computer Science Lib-Guide is a
repository created to support research work by faculty and
students in the Mathematics & Computer Science Department.
You should find links supporting many of your research needs
on this site including DOI article search, e-book resources,
reference websites, and writing and citation style guides.
Here is a
search widget you can use [it is set to enter a DOI but you
can search by other criterion once you get to the search page]
nuggets is a good source for information on Data Mining,
Knowledge Discovery, Genomic Mining, and Web Mining.
UCI Machine Learning Repository is a repository of databases,
domain theories and data generators that are used by the
machine learning community for the empirical analysis of
machine learning algorithms.
Data.gov is another source of free datasets. You can get data
sets in several formats [CSV, XML, etc.] Since many of the
files are in XML format you can Google search for an XML
parser to read and convert the XML files to another text
Correlates of War Project was founded in 1963 by J. David
Singer, a political scientist at the University of Michigan.
The original and continuing goal of the project has been the
systematic accumulation of scientific knowledge about war.
Joined by historian Melvin Small, the project began its work
by assembling a more accurate data set on the incidence and
extent of inter-state and extra-systemic war in the
post-Napoleonic period. To do this scientifically Singer and
Small found they needed to operationally resolve a number of
difficult issues such as what is a ?state? and what precisely
is a ?war.? Building upon the work of other pioneers such as
Pitirim Sorokin, Lewis Frye Richardson, and Quincy Wright,
Singer and Small published The Wages of War in
1972, a work that established a standard definition of war
that has guided the research of hundreds of scholars since its

Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence (NCARAI).
Navy Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence
(NCARAI) has been involved in both basic and applied research
in artificial intelligence since its inception in 1982.
NCARAI, part of the Information Technology Division within the
Naval Research Laboratory , is engaged in research and
development efforts designed to address the application of
artificial intelligence technology and techniques to critical
Navy and national problems.
program of the Center is directed toward understanding the
design and operation of computer systems capable of improved
performance based on experience; efficient and effective
interaction with other systems and with humans; sensor-based
control of autonomous activity; and the integration of
varieties of reasoning as necessary to support complex
decision-making. The emphasis at NCARAI is the linkage of
theory and application in demonstration projects that use a
full spectrum of artificial intelligence techniques.
