#### 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...

#### Boolean Function Complexity

Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 52.00Here Professor Paterson brings together papers from the 1990 Durham symposium on Boolean function complexity. The participants include many well known figures in the field. 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### Complexity: Knots, Colourings and Countings

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 52.00These notes are based on a series of lectures given at the Advanced Research Institute of Discrete Applied Mathematics, Rutgers University. more...

#### Complexity Explained

Springer 2007; US$ 79.95Explains why complex systems research is important in understanding the structure, function and dynamics of complex natural and social phenomena. This book shows how complex collective behavior emerges from the parts of a system, due to the interaction between the system and its environment. more...

#### Computability and Randomness

Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 44.99The interplay between computability and randomness has been an active area of research in recent years, reflected by ample funding in the USA, numerous workshops, and publications on the subject. The complexity and the randomness aspect of a set of natural numbers are closely related. Traditionally, computability theory is concerned with the complexity... more...

#### Computational Complexity

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 235.00There 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...
