This is an annotated Computer Science bibliography of about 8000 references. The main topics are computer algorithms, inductive inference (II), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, computer programming languages, functional programming (FP) & logic programming (LP), and bioinformatics, although many other references are also included. World wide web links are given where possible. (There is also Alf-Christian Achille's (huge) Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies [here].)

  • Search the bibliography using glookbib. (Glookbib searches for entries matching all the given keywords. It is not case sensitive. Use full dates, e.g., 1970 not 70.
    Do not include 'and', 'or', ',', '+' or wildcards,
    e.g., to search for 'inductive inference' give the Search String: inductive inference )

  • It also contains World Wide Web (www) links to annotated with their principal contents. For example, if you want to find information about women on the web then search for women www in this bibliography.
  • If you find this information useful please acknowledge it, and if you can fill in a gap or find something new that you think might interest me then please let me know.
