#### Forward Error Correction Based On Algebraic-Geometric Theory

Springer 2014;This book covers the design, construction, and implementation of algebraic-geometric codes from Hermitian curves. Matlab simulations of algebraic-geometric codes and Reed-Solomon codes compare their bit error rate using different modulation schemes over additive white Gaussian noise channel model. Simulation results of Algebraic-geometric codes bit... more...

#### Handbook of Game Theory

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 149.95The 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 Practice

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99Head 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...

#### Formal Languages, Automata and Numeration Systems, Volume 2

Wiley 2014; US$ 115.00The interplay between words, computability, algebra and arithmetic has now proved its relevance and fruitfulness. Indeed, the cross-fertilization between formal logic and finite automata (such as that initiated by J.R. Büchi) or between combinatorics on words and number theory has paved the way to recent dramatic developments, for example, the... more...

#### Johan van Benthem on Logic and Information Dynamics

Springer 2014; US$ 299.00This book illustrates the program of Logical-Informational Dynamics. Rational agents exploit the information available in the world in delicate ways, adopt a wide range of epistemic attitudes, and in that process, constantly change the world itself. Logical-Informational Dynamics is about logical systems putting such activities at center stage, focusing... more...

#### Constructivity and Computability in Historical and Philosophical Perspective

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00Ranging from Alan Turing?s seminal 1936 paper to the latest work on Kolmogorov complexity and linear logic, this comprehensive new work clarifies the relationship between computability on the one hand and constructivity on the other. The authors argue that even though constructivists have largely shed Brouwer?s solipsistic attitude to logic, there... more...

#### Design Science Research

Springer 2014; US$ 99.00Consolidating existing knowledge in Design Science, this book proposes a new research method to aid the exploration of design and problem solving within business, science and technology. It seeks to overcome a dichotomy that exists in the field between theory and practice to enable researches to find solutions to problems, rather than focusing on the... more...

#### Code Breaking in the Pacific

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00This book reveals the historical context and the evolution of the technically complex Allied Signals Intelligence (Sigint) activity against Japan from 1920 to 1945. It traces the all-important genesis and development of the cryptanalytic techniques used to break the main Japanese Navy code (JN-25) and the Japanese Army?s Water Transport Code during... more...

#### Mathematical Game Theory and Applications

Wiley 2014; US$ 107.50An authoritative and quantitative approach to modern game theory with applications from diverse areas including economics, political science, military science, and finance. Explores areas which are not covered in current game theory texts, including a thorough examination of zero-sum game. Provides introductory material to game theory, including... more...

#### Gaming: The Future's Language

W. Bertelsmann Verlag 2014; US$ 30.61Als Richard Duke sein Buch "Gaming: The Future's Language" 1974 veröffentlichte, war er ein Pionier für die Entwicklung und Anwendung von Planspielen in Politik, Strategieentwicklung und Management. Das Buch wurde zu einem viel zitierten Standardwerk. 2014 feiert die von Richard D. Duke gegründete International Simulation and Gaming Association... more...
