#### Causality: Philosophical Theory meets Scientific Practice

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99Head hits cause brain damage - but not always. Should we ban sport to protect athletes? Exposure to electromagnetic fields is strongly associated with cancer development - does that mean exposure causes cancer? Should we encourage old fashioned communication instead of mobile phones to reduce cancer rates? According to popular wisdom, the Mediterranean... more...

#### Complexity Explained

Springer 2007; US$ 79.95Explains why complex systems research is important in understanding the structure, function and dynamics of complex natural and social phenomena. This book shows how complex collective behavior emerges from the parts of a system, due to the interaction between the system and its environment. more...

#### Nonlinear Dimensionality Reduction

Springer 2007; US$ 149.00Methods of dimensionality reduction provide a way to understand and visualize the structure of complex data sets. This book describes the methods to reduce the dimensionality of numerical databases. For each method, the description starts from intuitive ideas, develops the mathematical details, and ends by outlining the algorithmic implementation. more...

#### Theory of Automata, Formal Languages and Computation

New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 20.00This book is aimed at providing an introduction to the basic models of computability to the undergraduate students. This book is devoted to Finite Automata and their properties. Pushdown Automata provides a class of models and enables the analysis of context-free languages. Turing Machines have been introduced and the book discusses computability and... more...

#### Hypercomputation

Springer 2008; US$ 89.99Describing hypercomputation, this book covers various attempts at devising conceptual hypermachines and the computational paradigms that may eventually lead to the construction of a hypermachine. It provides an understanding of what computability is, and why the Church-Turing thesis poses an arbitrary limit to what can be actually computed. more...

#### Aspects of Complexity

De Gruyter 2001; US$ 133.00The book contains 8 detailed expositions of the lectures given at the Kaikoura 2000 Workshop on Computability, Complexity, and Computational Algebra. Topics covered include basic models and questions of complexity theory, the Blum-Shub-Smale model of computation, probability theory applied to algorithmics (randomized alogrithms), parametric complexity,... more...

#### Limits of Computation

Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 93.95Limits of Computation: An Introduction to the Undecidable and the Intractable offers a gentle introduction to the theory of computational complexity. It explains the difficulties of computation, addressing problems that have no algorithm at all and problems that cannot be solved efficiently. The book enables readers to understand: What does... more...

#### Boolean Function Complexity

Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 47.00Here Professor Paterson brings together papers from the 1990 Durham symposium on Boolean function complexity. The participants include many well known figures in the field. more...

#### Complexity: Knots, Colourings and Countings

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 52.00These notes are based on a series of lectures given at the Advanced Research Institute of Discrete Applied Mathematics, Rutgers University. more...

#### Computing in Nonlinear Media and Automata Collectives

Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 220.00Computing in Nonlinear Media and Automata Collectives presents an account of new ways to design massively parallel computing devices in advanced mathematical models, such as cellular automata and lattice swarms, from unconventional materials, including chemical solutions, bio-polymers, and excitable media. more...
