#### Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming

CRC Press 2009; US$ 99.95Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: Modern Concepts and Practical Applications discusses algorithmic developments in the context of genetic algorithms (GAs) and genetic programming (GP). It applies the algorithms to significant combinatorial optimization problems and describes structure identification using HeuristicLab as a platform for... more...

#### Optimization

CRC Press 2015; US$ 142.95Choose the Correct Solution Method for Your Optimization Problem Optimization: Algorithms and Applications presents a variety of solution techniques for optimization problems, emphasizing concepts rather than rigorous mathematical details and proofs. The book covers both gradient and stochastic methods as solution techniques for unconstrained... more...

#### Computable Structures and the Hyperarithmetical Hierarchy

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 175.00This book describes a program of research in computable structure theory. The goal is to find definability conditions corresponding to bounds on complexity which persist under isomorphism. The results apply to familiar kinds of structures (groups, fields, vector spaces, linear orderings Boolean algebras, Abelian p-groups, models of arithmetic). There... more...

#### Algorithms and Complexity

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 71.00 US$ 61.77This proceedings contains contributions on topics such as the models of computation, analysis and design of sequential and parallel algorithms, data structures and their applications, approximating algorithms and probabilistic analysis, and computational complexity. Contents: Analysis and Implementation of Parallel Uniform Hashing (F Luccio et al);... more...

#### Tracking Reason

Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 27.99 US$ 25.19When ordinary people--mathematicians among them--take something to follow (deductively) from something else, they are exposing the backbone of our self-ascribed ability to reason. Jody Azzouni investigates the connection between that ordinary notion of consequence and the formal analogues invented by logicians. One claim of the book is that, despite... more...

#### The Lambda Calculus

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 133.00The revised edition contains a new chapter which provides an elegant description of the semantics. The various classes of lambda calculus models are described in a uniform manner. Some didactical improvements have been made to this edition. An example of a simple model is given and then the general theory (of categorical models) is developed. Indications... more...

#### The Moment of Proof

Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 49.99 US$ 44.99When Archimedes, while bathing, suddenly hit upon the principle of buoyancy, he ran wildly through the streets of Syracuse, stark naked, crying "eureka!" In The Moment of Proof , Donald Benson attempts to convey to general readers the feeling of eureka--the joy of discovery--that mathematicians feel when they first encounter an elegant proof.This... more...

#### Around and Beyond the Square of Opposition

Springer Basel 2012; US$ 56.03This book collects previously unpublished papers exploring the theory of oppositions based on Aristotelian foundations of logic, reflecting renewed interest and challenging re-interpretations which extend the original theory in breadth and depth. more...

#### Proof Theory

CRC Press 2014; US$ 99.95Although sequent calculi constitute an important category of proof systems, they are not as well known as axiomatic and natural deduction systems. Addressing this deficiency, Proof Theory: Sequent Calculi and Related Formalisms presents a comprehensive treatment of sequent calculi, including a wide range of variations. It focuses on sequent calculi... more...

#### Computability and Logic

Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 28.00Now in its fourth edition, this book on logic has been enhanced and rewritten. more...
