#### 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...

#### Complex Systems

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 90.95There has been recently some interdisciplinary convergence on a number of precise topics which can be considered as prototypes of complex systems. This convergence is best appreciated at the level of the techniques needed to deal with these systems, which include: 1) A domain of research around a multiple point where statistical physics, information... more...

#### Kolmogorov's Heritage in Mathematics

Springer 2007; US$ 69.95A.N. Kolmogorov (b. Tambov 1903, d. Moscow 1987) was one of the most brilliant mathematicians that the world has ever known. Incredibly deep and creative, he was able to approach each subject with a completely new point of view: in a few magnificent pages, which are models of shrewdness and imagination, and which astounded his contemporaries, he changed... more...

#### Computational Complexity

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 72.00A conceptual introduction to modern topics in complexity for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. more...

#### Computational Complexity

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 48.00New and classical results in computational complexity, including interactive proofs, PCP, derandomization, and quantum computation. Ideal for graduate students. more...

#### From System Complexity to Emergent Properties

Springer 2009; US$ 169.00Emergence and complexity refer to the appearance of higher-level properties and behaviours of a system that obviously comes from the collective dynamics of that system's components. This book highlights complexity modelling through dynamical or behavioral systems. more...

#### Perspectives in Computation

University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 29.00Computation is the process of applying a procedure or algorithm to the solution of a mathematical problem. Mathematicians and physicists have been occupied for many decades pondering which problems can be solved by which procedures, and, for those that can be solved, how this can most efficiently be done. In recent years, quantum mechanics has augmented... more...

#### The P=NP Question and Gödel's Lost Letter

Springer 2010; US$ 119.00The P=NP question is one of the great problems of science, which has intrigued computer scientists and mathematicians for decades. Despite the abundant research in theoretical computer science regarding the P=NP question, it has not been solved. "The P=NP Question and Godel's Lost Letter" covers historical developments (including the... more...

#### Coping with Complexity

Springer 2010; US$ 209.00This volume contains the extended version of selected talks given at the international research workshop 'Coping with Complexity: Model Reduction and Data Analysis', Ambleside, UK, August 31 - September 4, 2009. This book is deliberately broad in scope and aims at promoting new ideas and methodological perspectives. The topics of the chapters... more...
