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

Springer Netherlands 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...

#### 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 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...

#### 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$ 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...

#### 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...

#### 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... 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...

#### Perspectives in Computation

University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 31.00Computation 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...
