1.3 Rosenfeld Bibliographies

Chapter Contents (Back)

I also have a hypertext bibliography based on the on-line version of the Rosenfeld bibilographies. This hypertext version was created automatically from the available sources of the Rosenfeld bibliographies for 1984-1994. Most of the journal and conference references are correctly converted, but many of the references to the complete book and conference have a more variable format that could not be cleanly converted. Links through author names will generally get all the papers by that author.

1.4 Comments, Additional References, Corrections

Chapter Contents (Back)
Constructive comments, missing references, spellings of names, etc. are welcome. (The closing of every file has pointers for email, comments and additions.) The update form allows you to enter the fields and indicate where it should go, spammers really like simple forms, you will have to go through a few steps to complete the sumbission. The hypertext files themselves are generated from a more readable input and are only intended to be read by browsers, not by people.

1.5 Definitions of Terms and Spelling out Acronyms

Chapter Contents (Back)
This is an experiment, nothing much is here right now, maybe more later or not depending on how the experiment works. You, the user, may define keywords (see any keyword link or the keyword index) by providing short (a txt or twitter 140 characters is about right) descriptions -- the define link is in the keyword index pages. Acronyms will be spelled out.
