#### Introduction to Probabilistic Automata

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Introduction to Probabilistic Automata deals with stochastic sequential machines, Markov chains, events, languages, acceptors, and applications. The book describes mathematical models of stochastic sequential machines (SSMs), stochastic input-output relations, and their representation by SSMs. The text also investigates decision problems and minimization-of-states... more...

#### Picture Languages

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Computer Science and Applied Mathematics: Picture Languages: Formal Models for Picture Recognition treats pictorial pattern recognition from the formal standpoint of automata theory. This book emphasizes the capabilities and relative efficiencies of two types of automata?array automata and cellular array automata, with respect to various array recognition... more...

#### Some Vistas of Modern Mathematics

The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00Rapid advances in the physical and biological sciences and in related technologies have brought about equally farreaching changes in mathematical research. Focusing on control theory, invariant imbedding, dynamic programming, and quasilinearization, Mr. Bellman explores with ease and clarity the mathematical research problems arising from scientific... more...

#### A Course in Mathematical Cryptography

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 53.07The subject of this book is mathematical cryptography. By this we mean the mathematics involved in cryptographic protocols. As the field has expanded, using both commutative and noncommutative algebraic objects as cryptographic platforms, a book describing and explaining all these mathematical methods is of immeasurable value. more...

#### Scalable Information Systems

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 37.18This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the International Conference on Scalable Information Systems, INFOSCALE 2014, held in September 2014 in Seoul, South Korea. The 9 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 14 submissions. The papers cover a wide range of topics such as scalable... more...

#### Handbook Of Graph Grammars And Computing By Graph Transformation, Volume 1

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 126.00 US$ 114.66Graph grammars originated in the late 60s, motivated by considerations about pattern recognition and compiler construction. Since then the list of areas which have interacted with the development of graph grammars has grown quite impressively. Besides the aforementioned areas it includes software specification and development, VLSI layout schemes,... more...

#### Stochastic Complexity in Statistical Inquiry

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 34.00 US$ 30.94This book describes how model selection and statistical inference can be founded on the shortest code length for the observed data, called the stochastic complexity. This generalization of the algorithmic complexity not only offers an objective view of statistics, where no prejudiced assumptions of "true" data generating distributions are needed, but... more...

#### Problem Solving in Automata, Languages, and Complexity

Wiley 2004; US$ 168.00 US$ 145.60Automata and natural language theory are topics lying at the heart of computer science. Both are linked to computational complexity and together, these disciplines help define the parameters of what constitutes a computer, the structure of programs, which problems are solvable by computers, and a range of other crucial aspects of the practice of computer... more...

#### Fundamentals of Error-Correcting Codes

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 60.00In-depth introduction to coding theory from both an engineering and mathematical viewpoint. more...

#### Foundations of Cryptography: Volume 1, Basic Tools

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 50.00Focuses on the basic mathematical tools needed for cryptographic design: computational difficulty (one-way functions), pseudorandomness and zero-knowledge proofs. more...
