#### Fatou, Julia, Montel,: le grand prix des sciences mathématiques de 1918, et après... (French Edition)

Springer 2009; US$ 39.95Comment Fatou et Julia ont inventé ce que l?on appelle aujourd?hui les ensembles de Julia, avant, pendant et après la première guerre mondiale? L?histoire est racontée, avec ses mathématiques, ses conflits, ses personnalités. Elle est traitée à partir de sources nouvelles, et avec rigueur. On pourra s?y initier à l?itération des fractions rationnelles... more...

#### Two-Dimensional Information Theory and Coding

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 72.00A complete introduction to the subject, providing the key techniques for modeling two-dimensional data and estimating their information content. more...

#### An Introduction to the Theory of Formal Languages and Automata

John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 43.95The present text is a re-edition of Volume I of Formal Grammars in Linguistics and Psycholinguistics , a three-volume work published in 1974. This volume is an entirely self-contained introduction to the theory of formal grammars and automata, which hasn?t lost any of its relevance. Of course, major new developments have seen the light since this... more...

#### A Practical Guide to Error-Control Coding Using MATLAB

Artech House 2010; US$ 119.00This practical resource provides you with a comprehensive understanding of error control coding, an essential and widely applied area in modern digital communications. The goal of error control coding is to encode information in such a way that even if the channel (or storage medium) introduces errors, the receiver can correct the errors and recover... more...

#### Algorithmic Information Theory

Cambridge University Press 1987; US$ 42.00Expounds Gödel's incompleteness theorey using an information theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs. more...

#### Rational Behaviour and Bargaining Equilibrium in Games and Social Situations

#### Game of Life Cellular Automata

Springer 2010; US$ 189.00In the late 1960s, British mathematician John Conway invented a virtual mathematical machine that operates on a two-dimensional array of square cell. Each cell takes two states, live and dead. The cells' states are updated simultaneously and in discrete time. A dead cell comes to life if it has exactly three live neighbours. A live cell remains... more...

#### Foundations of Coding

Wiley 2011; US$ 237.00Although 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 are... more...

#### A Game-Theoretic Perspective on Coalition Formation

Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 59.99The formation of coalitions to achieve both collaborative and competitive goals is a phenomenon we see all around us. The list is long and varied: production cartels, political lobbies, customs unions, environmental coalitions, and ethnic alliances are just a few everyday instances. Drawing upon and extending his inaugural Lipsey Lectures at the University... more...
