  • Adversarial Risk Analysisby David L. Banks; Jesus M. Rios Aliaga; David Rios Insua

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 89.95

    Flexible Models to Analyze Opponent Behavior A relatively new area of research, adversarial risk analysis (ARA) informs decision making when there are intelligent opponents and uncertain outcomes. Adversarial Risk Analysis develops methods for allocating defensive or offensive resources against intelligent adversaries. Many examples throughout... more...

  • A Course in Mathematical Cryptographyby Gilbert Baumslag; Benjamin Fine; Martin Kreuzer; Gerhard Rosenberger

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 70.00

    The subject of this book is mathematical cryptography. By this we mean the mathematics involved in cryptographic protocols. As the field has expanded, using both commutative and noncommutative algebraic objects as cryptographic platforms, a book describing and explaining all these mathematical methods is of immeasurable value. more...

  • Spieltheorie und Schuldrechtby Urs Schweizer

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 30.54

    Schuldrechtliche Bestimmungen verändern Entscheidungsanreize und beeinflussen damit die strategische Interaktion zwischen den Parteien eines Schuldverhältnisses. Zur Erfassung strategischer Interaktion bedienen sich zeitgemäße Wirtschaftswissenschaften der hoch entwickelten Spieltheorie. So verwendet auch Urs Schweizer die spieltheoretische Methode,... more...

  • Ubiquitous Computing Application and Wireless Sensorby James J. Jong Hyuk Park; Gangman Yi

    Springer Netherlands 2015; US$ 259.00

    IT changes everyday?s life, especially in education and medicine. The goal of ITME 2014 is to further explore the theoretical and practical issues of Ubiquitous Computing Application and Wireless Sensor Network. It also aims to foster new ideas and collaboration between researchers and practitioners. The organizing committee is soliciting unpublished... more...

  • Code Biologyby Marcello Barbieri

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 159.00

    This book is the study of all codes of life with the standard methods of science. The genetic code and the codes of culture have been known for a long time and represent the historical foundation of this book. What is really new in this field is the study of all codes that came after the genetic code and before the codes of culture. The existence... more...

  • Some Vistas of Modern Mathematicsby Richard Bellman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Rapid advances in the physical and biological sciences and in related technologies have brought about equally farreaching changes in mathematical research. Focusing on control theory, invariant imbedding, dynamic programming, and quasilinearization, Mr. Bellman explores with ease and clarity the mathematical research problems arising from scientific... more...

  • Construction and Analysis of Cryptographic Functionsby Lilya Budaghyan

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 89.99

    This book covers novel research on construction and analysis of optimal cryptographic functions such as almost perfect nonlinear (APN), almost bent (AB), planar and bent functions. These functions have optimal resistance to linear and/or differential attacks, which are the two most powerful attacks on symmetric cryptosystems. Besides cryptographic... more...

  • Channel Estimation for Physical Layer Network Coding Systemsby Feifei Gao; Chengwen Xing; Gongpu Wang

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99

    This SpringerBrief presents channel estimation strategies for the physical later network coding (PLNC) systems. Along with a review of PLNC architectures, this brief examines new challenges brought by the special structure of bi-directional two-hop transmissions that are different from the traditional point-to-point systems and unidirectional relay... more...

  • Handbook of Game Theoryby Petyon Young; Shmuel Zamir

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 148.00

    The ability to understand and predict behavior in strategic situations, in which an individual?s success in making choices depends on the choices of others, has been the domain of game theory since the 1950s. Developing the theories at the heart of game theory has resulted in 8 Nobel Prizes and insights that researchers in many fields continue to... more...

  • Causality: Philosophical Theory meets Scientific Practiceby Phyllis Illari; Federica Russo

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Head hits cause brain damage - but not always. Should we ban sport to protect athletes? Exposure to electromagnetic fields is strongly associated with cancer development - does that mean exposure causes cancer? Should we encourage old fashioned communication instead of mobile phones to reduce cancer rates? According to popular wisdom, the Mediterranean... more...
