#### Computing in Nonlinear Media and Automata Collectives

CRC Press 2001; US$ 231.00Computing 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...

#### 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 Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 212.73This book highlights complexity modeling through dynamical or behavioral systems. It presents multidisciplinary approaches for getting representations of complex systems and using different methods to extract emergent structures. 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 Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 48.14A.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...

#### Aspects of Complexity

De Gruyter 2001; US$ 154.00The series is devoted to the publication of high-level monographs on all areas of mathematical logic and its applications. It is addressed to advanced students and research mathematicians, and may also serve as a guide for lectures and for seminars at the graduate level. more...

#### Constructivity and Computability in Historical and Philosophical Perspective

Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 97.40Ranging 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...

#### Parameterized Complexity Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 83.97Parameterized complexity theory is a recent branch of computational complexity theory that provides a framework for a refined analysis of hard algorithmic problems. The central notion of the theory, fixed-parameter tractability, has led to the development of various new algorithmic techniques and a whole new theory of intractability. This book is... more...

#### Perspectives in Computation

University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 33.00Computation 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...

#### Proceedings of the European Conference on Complex Systems 2012

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 190.34The European Conference on Complex Systems, held under the patronage of the Complex Systems Society, is an annual event that has become the leading European conference devoted to complexity science. ECCS'12, its ninth edition, took place in Brussels, during the first week of September 2012. It gathered about 650 scholars representing a wide range... more...
