#### 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

Cambridge University Press 1977; US$ 42.00This is a paperback edition of a major contribution to the field, first published in hard covers in 1977. more...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### Fundamentals in Information Theory and Coding

Springer 2011; US$ 179.00The work introduces the fundamentals concerning the measure of discrete information, the modeling of discrete sources without and with a memory, as well as of channels and coding. The understanding of the theoretical matter is supported by many examples. One particular emphasis is put on the explanation of Genomic Coding. Many examples throughout the... more...

#### Asynchronous Operators of Sequential Logic

Springer 2011; US$ 179.00This book is dedicated to new mathematical instruments assigned for logical modeling of the memory of digital devices. The case in point is logic-dynamical operation named venjunction and venjunctive function as well as sequention and sequentional function. Venjunction and sequention operate within the framework of sequential logic. In a form of the... 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$ 200.00Memory 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$ 247.00Volume 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...
