#### Classical Finite Transformation Semigroups

Springer London 2008; US$ 86.17This 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...

#### Classification Algorithms for Codes and Designs

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 134.29A 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...

#### Combinatorial Group Testing and Its Applications

World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 58.00 US$ 52.78Group testing was first proposed for blood tests, but soon found its way to many industrial applications. Combinatorial group testing studies the combinatorial aspect of the problem and is particularly related to many topics in combinatorics, computer science and operations research. Recently, the idea of combinatorial group testing has been applied... more...

#### Combinatorial and Geometric Group Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2011; US$ 111.91The 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...

#### Combinatorial and Geometric Group Theory, Edinburgh 1993

Cambridge University Press 1994; US$ 104.00Authoritative collection of surveys and papers that will be indispensable to all research workers in the area. more...

#### Combinatorics of Coxeter Groups

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 67.14Includes a rich variety of exercises to accompany the exposition of Coxeter groups Coxeter groups have already been exposited from algebraic and geometric perspectives, but this book will be presenting the combinatorial aspects of Coxeter groups more...

#### Extended Abstracts Fall 2012

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 67.14This volume features seventeen extended conference abstracts corresponding to selected talks given by participants at the CRM research program ?Automorphisms of Free Groups: Algorithms, Geometry and Dynamics?, which took place at the Centre de Recerca Matemātica in Barcelona in fall 2012. Most of them are short articles giving preliminary presentations... more...

#### Inverse Semigroups

World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56Symmetry is one of the most important organising principles in the natural sciences. The mathematical theory of symmetry has long been associated with group theory, but it is a basic premise of this book that there are aspects of symmetry which are more faithfully represented by a generalization of groups called inverse semigroups. The theory of inverse... more...

#### Media Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 111.91The 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...

#### Perturbations of Positive Semigroups with Applications

Springer London 2006; US$ 89.52Perturbations of Positive Semigroups with Applications is a self-contained introduction to semigroup theory with emphasis on positive semigroups on Banach lattices and perturbation techniques. The first part of the book, which should be regarded as an extended reference section, presents a survey of the results from functional analysis, the theory... more...
