#### Abstract Computing Machines

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 109.00This book takes a lambda calculus approach to organizing computations. It sets out with a brief introduction to lambda calculus, describes a variant of the classical SECD-machine as a basic interpreter for the lambda calculus, and in the main part continues with fully normalizing abstract lambda calculus machines. more...

#### Index and Stability in Bimatrix Games

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00The index of an equilibrium in a game gives information about the "stability" of the equilibrium, for example with respect to game dynamics. Unfortunately, index theory is often very technical. This book presents a new geometric construction that visualises the index in an intuitive way. For example, a 3C B C B C B C B C B C B C B C B n game,... more...

#### Self-Dual Codes and Invariant Theory

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 69.95One of the most remarkable theorems in coding theory is Gleason's 1970 theorem about the weight enumerators of self-dual codes and their connections with invariant theory. Part of an encyclopedia listing the different types of self-dual codes and their properties, this book develops a different theory. more...

#### Advances in Dynamic Games

Springer 2007; US$ 199.00The paradigms of dynamic games play an important role in the development of multi-agent models in engineering, economics, and management science. This book, an outgrowth of the 10th International Symposium on Dynamic Games, presents developments of the theory of dynamic games and its applications to various domains. more...

#### Semigroups And Languages, Proceedings Of The Workshop

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 175.00In recent years, semigroups and languages have seen huge developments and found their motivation in other fields of mathematics as well as in computer science. This book is a collection of original contributions in those fields. The proceedings have been selected for coverage in:. ? Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings® (ISTP® / ISI Proceedings).... more...

#### Mathematical Events of the Twentieth Century

Springer 2006; US$ 149.00During the 20th century, Russia and the Soviet Union were world leaders in mathematics. This collection of essays celebrates outstanding events and people in the development of twentieth century mathematics, representing a variety of specialties in which Russian and Soviet mathematicians played a considerable role. more...

#### Topics in Geometry, Coding Theory and Cryptography

Springer 2006; US$ 139.00After Goppa's discovery of algebraic geometry codes around 1980, many applications of function fields were found in different areas of mathematics and information theory, such as coding theory, sphere packings and lattices, sequence design, and cryptography. This book presents survey articles on some of these developments. more...

#### Complexity Explained

Springer 2007; US$ 79.95Explains why complex systems research is important in understanding the structure, function and dynamics of complex natural and social phenomena. This book shows how complex collective behavior emerges from the parts of a system, due to the interaction between the system and its environment. more...

#### Evolution of Non-expected Utility Preferences

Springer 2008; US$ 119.00The theory on the evolution of preferences deals with the endogenous formation of preference relations in strategic situations. It is related to the field of evolutionary game theory. Models are based on the 'indirect evolutionary approach' according to which preferences determine choice behavior which in turn determines evolutionary success.... more...

#### Nonlinear Dimensionality Reduction

Springer 2007; US$ 149.00Methods of dimensionality reduction provide a way to understand and visualize the structure of complex data sets. This book describes the methods to reduce the dimensionality of numerical databases. For each method, the description starts from intuitive ideas, develops the mathematical details, and ends by outlining the algorithmic implementation. more...
