#### Transmitting and Gaining Data

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 92.53The calculation of channel capacities was one of Rudolf Ahlswede's specialties and is the main topic of this second volume of his Lectures on Information Theory. Here we find a detailed account of some very classical material from the early days of Information Theory, including developments from the USA, Russia, Hungary and (which Ahlswede was probably... more...

#### Relation Algebras

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 285.00The modern theory of algebras of binary relations, reformulated by Tarski as an abstract, algebraic, equational theory of relation algebras, has considerable mathematical significance, with applications in various fields: e.g., in computer science---databases, specification theory, AI---and in anthropology, economics, physics, and philosophical logic.... more...

#### Residuated Lattices

Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 155.00The book is meant to serve two purposes. The first and more obvious one is to present state of the art results in algebraic research into residuated structures related to substructural logics. The second, less obvious but equally important, is to provide a reasonably gentle introduction to algebraic logic. At the beginning, the second objective is... more...

#### Relation Algebras by Games

Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 200.00Relation algebras are algebras arising from the study of binary relations. They form a part of the field of algebraic logic, and have applications in proof theory, modal logic, and computer science. This research text uses combinatorial games to study the fundamental notion of representations of relation algebras. Games allow an intuitive and appealing... more...

#### Rudiments of [mu]-calculus

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 127.00This book presents what in our opinion constitutes the basis of the theory of the mu-calculus, considered as an algebraic system rather than a logic. We have wished to present the subject in a unified way, and in a form as general as possible. Therefore, our emphasis is on the generality of the fixed-point notation, and on the connections between... more...

#### Boolean Functions in Cryptology and Information Security

IOS Press 2008; US$ 167.00This book contains the proceedings of the NATO-Russia Advanced Study Institute (ASI) 'Boolean Functions in Cryptology and Information Security', which was held at September 8-18, 2007 in Zvenigorod, Moscow region, Russia. These proceedings consist of three parts. The first part contains survey lectures on various areas of Boolean function theory that... more...

#### Lukasiewicz-Moisil Algebras

Elsevier Science 1991; US$ 72.95The Lukasiewicz-Moisil algebras were created by Moisil as an algebraic counterpart for the many-valued logics of Lukasiewicz. The theory of LM-algebras has developed to a considerable extent both as an algebraic theory of intrinsic interest and in view of its applications to logic and switching theory. This book gives an overview of the theory, comprising... more...

#### Boole's Logic and Probability

Elsevier Science 1986; US$ 72.95Since the publication of the first edition in 1976, there has been a notable increase of interest in the development of logic. This is evidenced by the several conferences on the history of logic, by a journal devoted to the subject, and by an accumulation of new results. This increased activity and the new results - the chief one being that Boole's... more...

#### Cryptographic Boolean Functions and Applications

Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 63.95Boolean functions are the building blocks of symmetric cryptographic systems. Symmetrical cryptographic algorithms are fundamental tools in the design of all types of digital security systems (i.e. communications, financial and e-commerce). Cryptographic Boolean Functions and Applications is a concise reference that shows how Boolean functions are... more...
