Scientomentrics was the result from statistical studies of bibliographies and databases. In the present context, scientometrics is a type of research method used in the library and information science for measuring the production and dissemination of different branches of human knowledge, particularly scientific knowledge. In order to trace the growth of literature on computer science, the study on aspects like -Growth of ACM’s journals and distribution of literature; chronological distribution of literature of ACM journals; growth of trust areas study in the computer science; and growth of research workers in the computer science; keywords distribution and citation analysis was conducted. It has been noticed that China has been growing fast as compare to India in computer science. A large number of papers contributed by the highly productive authors were in collaboration or joint authorship. The distribution of keywords shows that the studies have been conducted in a large number of areas of study in computer science.

In the current economic and social context, Romania can develop normally only by applying the IT&C tools with a maximum efficiency both in engineering and in management. My habilitation thesis is probably a unique one, in its own way, because I have tried to bring together in this thesis, three major areas of education and research: engineering, management and information technology. Thus it seems unusual for an engineer, very analytic for an economist and not very applied for a computer science specialist, this diversity explains the various transformations that I have made in my short career of 20 years.
A mind-bending excursion to the limits of science and mathematics Are some scientific problems insoluble? In Beyond Reason, internationally acclaimed math and science author A. K. Dewdney answers this question by examining eight insurmountable mathematical and scientific roadblocks that have stumped thinkers across the centuries, from ancient mathematical conundrums such as «squaring the circle,» first attempted by the Pythagoreans, to G?del's vexing theorem, from perpetual motion to the upredictable behavior of chaotic systems such as the weather. A. K. Dewdney, PhD (Ontario, Canada), was the author of Scientific American's «Computer Recreations» column for eight years. He has written several critically acclaimed popular math and science books, including A Mathematical Mystery Tour (0-471-40734-8); Yes, We Have No Neutrons (0-471-29586-8); and 200% of Nothing (0-471-14574-2).
This book describes the results of a continuous author effort to collect, preserve, conserve and utilize the Egyptian melon genetic resources started from 1993 up to now. Chapter 2 and 3 are a pre- PhD studies, meanwhile Chapter4 is my PhD Thesis. However chapter 5, 6 and 7 are considering a post- PhD studies. Generally the book material comes out from extracting PhD Thesis plus 10 published papers, published from 1998 up to 2011. Students, researchers and breeders could find very valuable information about Egyptian melon gene resources and other melon botanical varieties. Melon reactions against different races (0, 1, 2, 1,2y) of fusarium wilt pathogen are found in Chapter 2 of the book. However the genetic behaviour of field tolerance to gummy stem blight symptoms "sudden wilt" during the fruit maturity period based on Line X Tester analysis is found in chapter 7. Moreover valuable information about melon conventional breeding techniques(inbreeding, selection, crossing, field performance and off spring commercial evaluation) are presented in Chapter 3, 4 and 4. In addition valuable information about Egyptian consumers' preference of melon fruit are presented in chapter 5 and 6.

Bioinformatics is a great branch in computer science. Researching in bioinformatics is a complex phenomenon as it has overlapped two knowledge domains, namely, biological science and computer science. This research book has paid attention to investigate the proteins with a view to analyzing and classifying them into different groups by introducing a special algorithm. Besides, this research also tried to automate the web based Protein Data Bank to some extent.

Generally, art and science are considered to be two different cultures. The gap between these disciplines widened because the discrete space of specialized fields of study was more convenient than total knowledge. This thesis is a statement for new collaborations between artists and scientists and an integration of both disciplines into modern society. It answers questions regarding the manner in which artists can enrich research processes and art''s relevancy in connection with a technoscientific culture. This thesis provides an analysis of contemporary new media artworks that challenge our conception of the relationships between art, science and technology. It is intended to be a guide to art influenced by scientific and technological innovation that addresses research activity. The thesis also explicates historical aspects of art/science cross-fertilization and cites contemporary research centers, festivals and organizations as examples of how to promote collaborative multidisciplinary art-practice. Numerous pragmatists argue in favor of bridging the gap between art and science in order to achieve significant improvements for the prosperity of culture, academia and industry.
