Computational complexity

  • Aspects of Complexityby Rod Downey; Denis R. Hirschfeldt

    De Gruyter 2001; US$ 133.00

    The 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 complexity,... more...

  • Boolean Function Complexityby M. S. Paterson

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 47.00

    Here 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?by Hunter K. Monroe

    International Monetary Fund 2009; US$ 9.00

    Recent 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Complexity: Knots, Colourings and Countingsby Dominic Welsh

    Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 52.00

    These notes are based on a series of lectures given at the Advanced Research Institute of Discrete Applied Mathematics, Rutgers University. more...

  • Complexity Explainedby Peter Erdi

    Springer 2007; US$ 79.95

    Explains 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 Randomnessby André Nies

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 44.99

    The 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 Complexityby Marius Zimand

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 225.00

    There 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...
