I am not sure here is the appropriate place to ask this question or not. But I am writing my MS thesis and so it should has many references to other resources (to comply Copyright). But my problem is about citation for popular references. For example I just want to refer Vector Space Model (uses in Machine Learning) without any additional explanation in the thesis. I have just heard about it and don't know it has originated from where really. Is there any repository of popular citations, or a simple way to find them, which can be used in such situations? Now I am using Google Scholar and seeking for a faster way.
