Part of the Studies in Big Data book series (SBD, volume 18)


Contemporary research in various disciplines from social science to computer science, mathematics and physics, is characterized by the availability of large amounts of data. These large amounts of data present various challenges, one of the most intriguing of which deals with knowledge discovery and large-scale data-mining. This chapter investigates the research areas that are the most influenced by big data availability, and on which aspects of large data handling different scientific communities are working. We employ scientometric mapping techniques to identify who works on what in the area of big data and large scale optimization problems.
