Every time I write a paper, or apply for a grant, or whatever then I face the same question of how to classify it. Possible options in MSC 2010 to consider are: (see http://msc2010.org/MSC-2010-server.html ) 00 General 00Axx General and miscellaneous specific topics • 00A20 Dictionaries and other general reference works 90-XX Operations research, mathematical programming • 90-00 General reference works (handbooks, dictionaries, bibliographies, etc.) • 90-01 Instructional exposition (textbooks, tutorial papers, etc.) • 90-02 Research exposition (monographs, survey articles) • 90-04 Explicit machine computation and programs (not the theory of computation or programming) • 90-06 Proceedings, conferences, collections, etc. • 90-08 Computational methods 90Bxx Operations research and management science • 90B99 None of the above, but in this section 90Cxx Mathematical programming [See also 49Mxx, 65Kxx] • 90C99 None of the above, but in this section 65Kxx Mathematical programming, optimization and variational techniques • 65K05 Mathematical programming methods [See also 90Cxx] • 65K99 None of the above, but in this section 94-XX Information and communication, circuits • 94-00 General reference works (handbooks, dictionaries, bibliographies, etc.) • 94-04 Explicit machine computation and programs (not the theory of computation or programming) 94Axx Communication, information • 94A05 Communication theory [See also 60G35, 90B18] • 94A15 Information theory, general [See also 62B10, 81P45] • 94A99 None of the above, but in this section A search for MathML comes up with no matches in: http://www.zentralblatt-math.org/msc/data/msc2010.pdf In a more general setting (all research fields), I've even used things like: (e.g. for Digital Maths Library) Information Technology, Information systems, Library studies This is something that really needs to be addressed. > > Michael Cheers, Ross ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Ross Moore ross.moore@mq.edu.au Mathematics Department office: E7A-419 Macquarie University tel: +61 (0)2 9850 8955 Sydney, Australia 2109 fax: +61 (0)2 9850 8114 ------------------------------------------------------------------------Received on Tuesday, 8 May 2012 22:45:12 GMT
