At the beginning of my computer science PhD, I wrote a literature review and found it to be a challenging project. I’d like to share some of my insights from planning the review, sifting and organizing the material, and the challenges of this process.
I’ve reached the end of my first year as a PhD student. This is a brief summary of my topic, progress, and future directions.
During my Master’s Thesis (pdf, blog entry), I experimented with quantifications of Recurrence Plots. I found that different software for Recurrence Quantification Analysis (RQA) treats lines that extend beyond the borders of the Recurrence Matrix in different ways. I propose a minor improvement to RQA, which distinguishes lines of known and unknown length.
