#### Wind Powered Generator

Maker Media, Inc 2009; US$ 1.99With a motor and some piping, it's surprisingly easy to build this inexpensive, efficient wind generator -and enjoy free energy forever. There are no limits to what you can do with wind power. It's abundant, clean, cheap, and easy to harness. Abe and Josie Connally designed this Chispito Wind Generator (that's Spanish for "little spark") for fast... 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...

#### Reliable and Autonomous Computational Science

Springer 2011; US$ 169.00Increasing size and complexity of software and hardware systems makes it harder to ensure their reliability. At the same time, the issues of autonomous computing become more critical as we more and more rely on software systems in our daily life. Such complexity is getting even more critical with the ubiquitous computing of embedded devices and other... 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$ 52.00Here 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...

#### Parameterized Complexity Theory

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 119.00Parameterized complexity theory is a branch of computational complexity theory that provides a framework for a refined analysis of hard algorithmic problems. This book provides an introduction to both algorithmic techniques for fixed-parameter tractability and the structural theory of parameterized complexity classes. more...

#### Computational Complexity

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 235.00There has been a common perception that computational complexity is a theory of "bad news" because its most typical results assert that various real-world and innocent-looking tasks are infeasible. In fact, "bad news" is a relative term, and, indeed, in some situations (e.g., in cryptography), we want an adversary to not be able to perform a certain... more...
