#### EVOLVE - A Bridge between Probability, Set Oriented Numerics, and Evolutionary Computation IV

Springer 2013; US$ 259.00Numerical and computational methods are nowadays used in a wide range of contexts in complex systems research, biology, physics, and engineering. Over the last decades different methodological schools have emerged with emphasis on different aspects of computation, such as nature-inspired algorithms, set oriented numerics, probabilistic systems... more...

#### Understanding Petri Nets

Springer 2013; US$ 49.99With their intuitive graphical approach and expressive analysis techniques, Petri nets are suitable for a wide range of applications and teaching scenarios, and they have gained wide acceptance as a modeling technique in areas such as software design and control engineering. The core theoretical principles have been studied for many decades and there... more...

#### Boolean Differential Equations

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 45.00The Boolean Differential Calculus (BDC) is a very powerful theory that extends the structure of a Boolean Algebra significantly. Based on a small number of definitions, many theorems have been proven. The available operations have been efficiently implemented in several software packages. There is a very wide field of applications. While a Boolean... more...

Es enthält zahlreiche bis zum zahlenmäßigen Ergebnis durchgerechnete Beispiele sowie eine Vielzahl von Übungsaufgaben zur selbstständigen Lösung. Aus dem Inhalt: Einführung. Netzplantechnik. Lineare Optimierung. Transport-... more...

#### Reasoning with Probabilistic and Deterministic Graphical Models

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 45.00Graphical models (e.g., Bayesian and constraint networks, influence diagrams, and Markov decision processes) have become a central paradigm for knowledge representation and reasoning in both artificial intelligence and computer science in general. These models are used to perform many reasoning tasks, such as scheduling, planning and learning, diagnosis... more...

#### A Nonlinear Dynamics Perspective of Wolfram's New Kind of Science (Volume V)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 220.00This penultimate volume contains numerous original, elegant, and surprising results in 1-dimensional cellular automata. Perhaps the most exciting, if not shocking, new result is the discovery that only 82 local rules, out of 256, suffice to predict the time evolution of any of the remaining 174 local rules from an arbitrary initial bit-string configuration.... more...

#### David Makinson on Classical Methods for Non-Classical Problems

Springer 2013; US$ 179.00The volume analyses and develops David Makinson?s efforts to make classical logic useful outside its most obvious application areas. The book contains chapters that analyse, appraise, or reshape Makinson?s work and chapters that develop themes emerging from his contributions. These are grouped into major areas to which Makinsons has made highly influential... more...

#### The Language of Game Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 127.00This volume contains eight papers written by Adam Brandenburger and his co-authors over a period of 25 years. These papers are part of a program to reconstruct game theory in order to make how players reason about a game a central feature of the theory. The program — now called epistemic game theory — extends the classical definition... more...
