#### Foundations of Coding

Wiley 2011; US$ 245.00Although devoted to constructions of good codes for error control, secrecy or data compression, the emphasis is on the first direction. Introduces a number of important classes of error-detecting and error-correcting codes as well as their decoding methods. Background material on modern algebra is presented where required. The role of error-correcting... more...

#### Game Theory

Wiley 2011; US$ 128.00A fundamental introduction to modern game theory from a mathematical viewpoint Game theory arises in almost every fact of human and inhuman interaction since oftentimes during these communications objectives are opposed or cooperation is viewed as an option. From economics and finance to biology and computer science, researchers and practitioners... more...

#### Advanced Linear Cryptanalysis of Block and Stream Ciphers

IOS Press 2011; US$ 131.00The origins of linear cryptanalysis can be traced back to a number of seminal works of the early 1990s. Since its invention, several theoretical and practical aspects of the technique have been studied, understood and generalized, resulting in more elaborated attacks against certain ciphers, but also in some negative results regarding the potential... more...

#### DISCRETE SYSTEMS WITH MEMORY

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 123.00Memory is a universal function of organized matter. What is the mathematics of memory? How does memory affect the space-time behaviour of spatially extended systems? Does memory increase complexity? This book provides answers to these questions. It focuses on the study of spatially extended systems, i.e., cellular automata and other related discrete... more...

#### NONLINEAR DYNAMICS PERSPECTIVE OF WOLFRAM'S NEW KIND OF SCIENCE, A (VOLUME IV)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 152.00Volume IV continues the author's odyssey on l-D cellular automata as chronicled in Volumes I, II and III, by uncovering a novel quasi-ergodicity phenomenon involving orbits meandering among omega-limit orbits of complex (group 5) and hyper (group 6) Bernoulli rules. This discovery is embellished with analytical formulas characterizing the fractal... more...

#### The Theory of Timed I/O Automata, Second Edition

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010; US$ 40.00This monograph presents the Timed Input/Output Automaton (TIOA) modeling framework, a basic mathematical framework to support description and analysis of timed (computing) systems. Timed systems are systems in which desirable correctness or performance properties of the system depend on the timing of events, not just on the order of their occurrence.... more...

#### Progress in Applications of Boolean Functions

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010; US$ 40.00This book brings together five topics on the application of Boolean functions. They are1. Equivalence classes of Boolean functions: The number of n-variable functions is large, even for values as small as n = 6, and there has been much research on classifying functions. There are many classifications, each with their own distinct merit.2. Boolean functions... more...
