#### Turbo-like Codes

Springer 2007; US$ 179.00Turbo-like Codes introduces turbo error correcting concept in a simple language, including a general theory and the algorithms for decoding turbo-like code. It presents a unified framework for the design and analysis of turbo codes and LDPC codes and their decoding algorithms. A major focus of Turbo-like Codes is on high speed turbo decoding, which... 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...

#### Reaction-Diffusion Automata

Springer 2012; US$ 179.00Reaction-diffusion and excitable media are amongst most intriguing substrates. Despite apparent simplicity of the physical processes involved the media exhibit a wide range of amazing patterns: from target and spiral waves to travelling localisations and stationary breathing patterns. These media are at the heart of most natural processes, including... more...

#### Computing in Nonlinear Media and Automata Collectives

Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 220.00Computing in Nonlinear Media and Automata Collectives presents an account of new ways to design massively parallel computing devices in advanced mathematical models, such as cellular automata and lattice swarms, from unconventional materials, including chemical solutions, bio-polymers, and excitable media. 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...

#### Automata, Languages and Programming

Springer 2009; US$ 109.00The two-volume set LNCS 5555 and LNCS 5556 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 36th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming, ICALP 2009, held in Rhodes, Greece, in July 2009. The 126 revised full papers (62 papers for track A, 24 for track B, and 22 for track C) presented were carefully reviewed and selected from a total... more...

#### Automatic Sequences

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 72.00This book is the first integrated treatment of sequences generated by finite automata and their generalizations. 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...

#### New Perspectives on Games and Interaction

Amsterdam University Press 2008; US$ 70.00This volume is a collection of papers presented at the 2007 colloquium on new perspectives on games and interaction at the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences in Amsterdam. more...
