Computational complexity

  • Causality: Philosophical Theory meets Scientific Practiceby Phyllis Illari; Federica Russo

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Head 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Limits of Computationby Edna E. Reiter; Clayton Matthew Johnson

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 93.95

    Limits of Computation: An Introduction to the Undecidable and the Intractable offers a gentle introduction to the theory of computational complexity. It explains the difficulties of computation, addressing problems that have no algorithm at all and problems that cannot be solved efficiently. The book enables readers to understand: What does... more...

  • 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...

  • Foundations of Complex Systemsby Gregoire Nicolis; C. Nicolis

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 164.00

    This 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...

  • 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...

  • Coping with Complexityby Alexander N. Gorban; Dirk Roose

    Springer 2010; US$ 209.00

    This 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...

  • The P=NP Question and Gödel's Lost Letterby Richard J. Lipton

    Springer 2010; US$ 119.00

    The 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...
