#### Foundations of Complex Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 164.00This book provides a self-contained presentation of the physical and mathematical laws governing complex systems. Complex systems arising in natural, engineering, environmental, life and social sciences are approached from a unifying point of view using an array of methodologies such as microscopic and macroscopic level formulations, deterministic... more...

#### Understanding Information and Computation

Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 154.95The 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 Systems

Springer 2012; US$ 259.00Complexity 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 Proofs

Springer 2013; US$ 39.99People, 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?

International Monetary Fund 2009; US$ 9.00Recent 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 Perspective

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00Ranging 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...

#### Hypercomputation

Springer US 2008; US$ 89.99Hypercomputation is a relatively new theory of computation that is about computing methods and devices that transcend the so-called Church-Turing thesis. This book deals exclusively with the topic and presents a thorough description of hypercomputation. It covers all attempts at devising conceptual hypermachines and all new promising computational... more...

#### 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...

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

Springer US 2010; US$ 119.00A cutting edge discussion of the "The P=NP Question" "This is a much needed treatment of great open problem computing," states Richard Demillo, Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology more...
