#### Mathematical Card Magic

CRC Press 2013; US$ 37.95Mathematical card effects offer both beginning and experienced magicians an opportunity to entertain with a minimum of props. Featuring mostly original creations, Mathematical Card Magic: Fifty-Two New Effects presents an entertaining look at new mathematically based card tricks. Each chapter contains four card effects, generally starting with... more...

#### Lessons in Play

CRC Press 2007; US$ 83.95Combinatorial games are games of pure strategy involving two players, with perfect information and no element of chance. Starting from the very basics of gameplay and strategy, the authors cover a wide range of topics, from game algebra to special classes of games. Classic techniques are introduced and applied in novel ways to analyze both old and... more...

#### Reasoning with Probabilistic and Deterministic Graphical Models

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 45.00Graphical models (e.g., Bayesian and constraint networks, influence diagrams, and Markov decision processes) have become a central paradigm for knowledge representation and reasoning in both artificial intelligence and computer science in general. These models are used to perform many reasoning tasks, such as scheduling, planning and learning, diagnosis... more...

#### A Nonlinear Dynamics Perspective of Wolfram's New Kind of Science (Volume V)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 135.00This penultimate volume contains numerous original, elegant, and surprising results in 1-dimensional cellular automata. Perhaps the most exciting, if not shocking, new result is the discovery that only 82 local rules, out of 256, suffice to predict the time evolution of any of the remaining 174 local rules from an arbitrary initial bit-string configuration.... more...

#### Essentials of Error-Control Coding Techniques

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Essentials of Error-Control Coding Techniques presents error-control coding techniques with an emphasis on the most recent applications. It is written for engineers who use or build error-control coding equipment. Many examples of practical applications are provided, enabling the reader to obtain valuable expertise for the development of a wide range... more...

#### The Language of Game Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 78.00This volume contains eight papers written by Adam Brandenburger and his co-authors over a period of 25 years. These papers are part of a program to reconstruct game theory in order to make how players reason about a game a central feature of the theory. The program — now called epistemic game theory — extends the classical definition... more...

#### Cellular Automata

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95Cellular Automata presents the fundamental principles of homogeneous cellular systems. This book discusses the possibility of biochemical computers with self-reproducing capability. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of some theorems dealing with conditions under which universal computation and construction can be exhibited... more...

#### Theory of Conjectural Variations

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 73.00We have witnessed in recent years a revival of Conjectural Variations in Game Theory. This reincarnation of an old idea, using a dynamic point of view, aims at combining the adequacy with facts to the requirements of a firmly grounded theory. This book presents, for the first time, a comprehensive account of conjectural variations equilibria in their... more...

#### Cardinal Invariants on Boolean Algebras

Springer Basel 2014; US$ 149.00Along with almost 200 fascinating open problems, this updated edition covers most of what we know about Boolean cardinal invariants, and includes detailed studies of 21 cardinal number valued functions such as cellularity, defined for any Boolean algebra. more...

#### Mathematical Game Theory and Applications

Wiley 2014; US$ 109.00An authoritative and quantitative approach to modern game theory with applications from economics, political science, military science, and finance Mathematical Game Theory combines both the theoretical and mathematical foundations of game theory with a series of complex applications along with topics presented in a logical progression... more...
