#### Random Graphs for Statistical Pattern Recognition

Wiley 2005; US$ 150.00A timely convergence of two widely used disciplines Random Graphs for Statistical Pattern Recognition is the first book to address the topic of random graphs as it applies to statistical pattern recognition. Both topics are of vital interest to researchers in various mathematical and statistical fields and have never before been treated together... more...

#### The Pursuit of Perfect Packing

Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 44.95In 1998 Thomas Hales dramatically announced the solution of a problem that has long teased eminent mathematicians: what is the densest possible arrangement of identical spheres? The Pursuit of Perfect Packing recounts the story of this problem and many others that have to do with packing things together. The examples are taken from mathematics, physics,... more...

#### Combinatorics of Symmetric Designs

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 181.00A unified and comprehensive exposition of the theory of symmetric designs with emphasis on recent developments. more...

#### Finite Packing and Covering

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 101.00This book provides an in-depth discussion of the theory of finite packings and coverings by convex bodies. more...

#### Submodular Functions and Optimization

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 142.00It has widely been recognized that submodular functions play essential roles in efficiently solvable combinatorial optimization problems. Since the publication of the 1st edition of this book fifteen years ago, submodular functions have been showing further increasing importance in optimization, combinatorics, discrete mathematics, algorithmic computer... more...

#### The Construction of Optimal Stated Choice Experiments

Wiley 2007; US$ 126.00The most comprehensive and applied discussion of stated choice experiment constructions available The Construction of Optimal Stated Choice Experiments provides an accessible introduction to the construction methods needed to create the best possible designs for use in modeling decision-making. Many aspects of the design of a generic stated choice... more...

#### Graphs of Groups on Surfaces

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 225.00The book, suitable as both an introductory reference and as a text book in the rapidly growing field of topological graph theory, models both maps (as in map-coloring problems) and groups by means of graph imbeddings on sufaces. Automorphism groups of both graphs and maps are studied. In addition connections are made to other areas of mathematics,... more...

#### Covering Codes

Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 260.00The problems of constructing covering codes and of estimating their parameters are the main concern of this book. It provides a unified account of the most recent theory of covering codes and shows how a number of mathematical and engineering issues are related to covering problems. Scientists involved in discrete mathematics, combinatorics, computer... more...

#### Codes on Euclidean Spheres

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 210.00Codes on Euclidean spheres are often referred to as spherical codes. They are of interest from mathematical, physical and engineering points of view. Mathematically the topic belongs to the realm of algebraic combinatorics, with close connections to number theory, geometry, combinatorial theory, and - of course - to algebraic coding theory. The connections... more...

#### Graph Theory in Paris

Springer 2006; US$ 179.00In July 2004, a conference on graph theory was held in Paris in memory of Claude Berge, one of the pioneers of the field. The event brought together many prominent specialists on topics, such as perfect graphs and matching theory, upon which Claude Berge's work has had a major impact. This volume includes contributions to these and other topics... more...
