#### Semigroups and Automata. SELECTA Uno Kaljulaid (1941 ? 1999)

IOS Press 2006; US$ 239.00This volume provides a selection of previously published papers and manuscripts of Uno Kaljulaid, an eminent Estonian algebraist of the last century. The central part of the book is the English translation of Kaljulaid's 1979 Candidate thesis, which originally was typewritten in Russian and manufactured in not so many copies. The thesis is devoted... more...

#### Perturbations of Positive Semigroups with Applications

Springer 2006; US$ 129.00With emphasis on positive semigroups on Banach lattices and perturbation techniques, this book is an introduction to semigroup theory. It presents a survey of the results and also provides worked examples to help absorb the theoretical material. It then deals with the application of the developed theory to a variety of problems. more...

#### Classification Algorithms for Codes and Designs

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 169.00A comprehensive reference on combinatorial classification algorithms, with emphasis on both the general theory and application to central families of combinatorial objects, in particular, codes and designs. The accompanying DVD provides a catalogue of combinatorial objects with small parameters. more...

#### Semigroups And Formal Languages

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 193.00This festschrift volume in honour of Donald B McAlister on the occasion of his 65th birthday presents papers from leading researchers in semigroups and formal languages. The contributors cover a number of areas of current interest: from pseudovarieties and regular languages to ordered groupoids and one-relator groups, and from semigroup algebras to... more...

#### Classical Finite Transformation Semigroups

Springer 2008; US$ 119.00Offers a self-contained introduction to the modern theory of finite transformation semigroups. This book covers topics such as: transformations and semigroups, ideals and Green's relations, subsemigroups, congruences, endomorphisms, nilpotent subsemigroups, presentations, actions on sets, linear representations, cross-sections and variants. more...

#### Words, Languages And Combinatorics Iii, Proceedings Of The International Colloquium

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 394.00The research results published in this book range from pure mathematical theory (semigroup theory, discrete mathematics, etc.) to theoretical computer science, in particular formal languages and automata. The papers address issues in the algebraic and combinatorial theories of semigroups, words and languages, the structure theory of automata, the classification... more...

#### Combinatorics of Coxeter Groups

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00This book is a carefully written exposition of Coxeter groups, an area of mathematics which appears in algebra, geometry, and combinatorics. In this book, the combinatorics of Coxeter groups has mainly to do with reduced expressions, partial order of group elements, enumeration, associated graphs and combinatorial cell complexes, and more. more...

#### Media Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 119.00The focus of this book is a mathematical structure modeling a physical or biological system that can be in any of a number of ?states. ? Each state is characterized by a set of binary features, and di?ers from some other nei- bor state or states by just one of those features. In some situations, what distinguishes a state S from a neighbor state T... more...

#### The q-theory of Finite Semigroups

Springer 2009; US$ 169.00Helps understand modern finite semigroup theory. This book develops q-theory, a theory that provides a unifying approach to finite semigroup theory via quantization. It also contains contemporary exposition of the complete theory of the complexity of finite semigroups. more...
