Computational complexity

Most popular at the top

  • Understanding Information and Computationby Philip Tetlow

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 144.95

    The World Wide Web is the largest sociotechnical system humankind has ever seen; it has changed the way we interact, learn and innovate. Almost daily it appears to change, improve and increase its hold on us.We are, though, seeing underlying stability emerge. The way Web sites rank in popularity, for example, appears to follow familiar laws. These... more...

  • Chaos and Complex Systemsby Stavros G. Stavrinides; Santo Banerjee; Suleyman Hikmet Caglar; Mehmet Ozer

    Springer 2012; US$ 259.00

    Complexity Science and Chaos Theory are fascinating areas of scientific research with wide-ranging applications.  The interdisciplinary nature and ubiquity of complexity and chaos are features that provides scientists with a motivation to pursue general theoretical tools and frameworks. Complex systems give rise to emergent behaviors, which in... more...

  • People, Problems, and Proofsby Richard J. Lipton; Kenneth W. Regan

    Springer 2013; US$ 39.99

    People, problems, and proofs are the lifeblood of theoretical computer science. Behind the computing devices and applications that have transformed our lives are clever algorithms, and for every worthwhile algorithm there is a problem that it solves and a proof that it works. Before this proof there was an open problem: can one create an efficient... more...

  • Can Markets Compute Equilibria?by Hunter K. Monroe

    International Monetary Fund 2009; US$ 9.00

    Recent turmoil in financial and commodities markets has renewed questions regarding how well markets discover equilibrium prices, particularly when those markets are highly complex. A relatively new critique questions whether markets can realistically find equilibrium prices if computers cannot. For instance, in a simple exchange economy with Leontief... more...

  • Constructivity and Computability in Historical and Philosophical Perspectiveby Jacques Dubucs; Michel Bourdeau

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Ranging from Alan Turing?s seminal 1936 paper to the latest work on Kolmogorov complexity and linear logic, this comprehensive new work clarifies the relationship between computability on the one hand and constructivity on the other. The authors argue that even though constructivists have largely shed Brouwer?s solipsistic attitude to logic, there... more...

  • Complex Systemsby Jean-Philippe Bouchaud; Marc Mézard; Jean Dalibard

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 87.95

    There 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...

  • Computational Complexityby Marius Zimand

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 225.00

    There 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...

  • Wind Powered Generatorby Abe Connally

    Maker Media, Inc 2009; US$ 1.99

    With 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...
