  • Index and Stability in Bimatrix Gamesby H. Arndt von Schemde

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00

    The 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...

  • Advances in Dynamic Gamesby Alain Haurie; Shigeo Muto; Leon A. Petrosjan; T.E.S. Raghavan

    Springer 2007; US$ 199.00

    The 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...

  • Self-Dual Codes and Invariant Theoryby Gabriele Nebe; Eric M. Rains; Neil J. A. Sloane

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 69.95

    One 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...

  • Abstract Computing Machinesby W. Kluge

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 109.00

    This 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...

  • Topics in Geometry, Coding Theory and Cryptographyby Arnaldo Garcia; Henning Stichtenoth

    Springer 2006; US$ 139.00

    After 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...

  • Mathematical Events of the Twentieth Centuryby A.A. Bolibruch; Yu.S. Osipov; Ya.G. Sinai

    Springer 2006; US$ 149.00

    During 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...

  • Nonlinear Dimensionality Reductionby John A. Lee; Michel Verleysen

    Springer 2007; US$ 149.00

    Methods 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...

  • Theory of Automata, Formal Languages and Computationby S.P.E. Xavier

    New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 20.00

    This book is aimed at providing an introduction to the basic models of computability to the undergraduate students. This book is devoted to Finite Automata and their properties. Pushdown Automata provides a class of models and enables the analysis of context-free languages. Turing Machines have been introduced and the book discusses computability and... more...

  • Complexity Explainedby Peter Erdi

    Springer 2007; US$ 79.95

    Explains 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 Preferencesby Sven von Widekind

    Springer 2008; US$ 119.00

    The 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...
