Survey of Computer Aided Methods for Mass Spectral Interpretation
Volume 35, Number 3 (June 1981) Page 255-266
Martinsen, David P.
Recent studies in the application of computerized techniques to mass spectral interpretation have been reviewed. The techniques have been divided into library search, pattern recognition, and interpretive methods. The more common methods in use in each category, as well as the more recent methods, are discussed. Earlier review articles are referenced for a more comprehensive treatment of earlier methods. The status of the large libraries of electron impact mass spectra is discussed and a number of attempts at improving the quality of those libraries are detailed.
