#### Combinatorial and Geometric Group Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2011; US$ 107.27The paper by O. Bogopolski and A. Vikentiev describes some particularly useful?niteindexsubgroupsoftheautomorphismgroupofa?nitelygeneratedfree group. One of their uses may be to attack the problem on the Kazhdan property (T) for these groups. The paper of A. Juhasz contains a solution of the di?cult membership problem in a subclass of one-relator groups.... more...

#### The q-theory of Finite Semigroups

Springer US 2009; US$ 160.92This comprehensive, encyclopedic text provides the reader - from the graduate student to the researcher/practitioner ? with a detailed understanding of modern finite semigroup theory, focusing in particular on advanced topics on the cutting edge of research. more...

#### Classical Finite Transformation Semigroups

Springer London 2008; US$ 82.60This book provides an introduction to the modern theory of finite transformation semigroups with a strong emphasis on concrete examples and combinatorial applications. It contains many exercises and historical comments. more...

#### Media Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 107.27The 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 thesis is devoted... more...

#### Classification Algorithms for Codes and Designs

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 128.73A new starting-point and a new method are requisite, to insure a complete [classi?cation of the Steiner triple systems of order 15]. This method was furnished, and its tedious and di?cult execution und- taken, by Mr. Cole. F. N. Cole, L. D. Cummings, and H. S. White (1917) [129] The history of classifying combinatorial objects is as old as the history... more...
