#### Aspects of Complexity

De Gruyter 2001; US$ 120.86The 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$ 52.00 US$ 42.64Here 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

OUP Oxford 2014; US$ 49.99 US$ 42.99Scientific and philosophical literature on causality has become highly specialised. It is hard to find suitable access points for students, young researchers, or professionals outside this domain. This book provides a guide to the complex literature, explains the scientific problems of causality and the philosophical tools needed to address them. more...

#### Chaos and Complex Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 186.86Complexity 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 turn... 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$ 52.00 US$ 42.64These notes are based on a series of lectures given at the Advanced Research Institute of Discrete Applied Mathematics, Rutgers University. more...

#### Complexity Explained

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 65.94This book explains why complex systems research is important in understanding the structure, function and dynamics of complex natural and social phenomena. Readers will learn the basic concepts and methods of complex system research. more...

#### Computability and Randomness

OUP Oxford 2009; US$ 44.99 US$ 38.69The book covers topics such as lowness and highness properties, Kolmogorov complexity, betting strategies and higher computability. Both the basics and recent research results are desribed, providing a very readable introduction to the exciting interface of computability and randomness for graduates and researchers in computability theory, theoretical... 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...
