#### 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...

#### Quantitative Graph Theory

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 99.95The first book devoted exclusively to quantitative graph theory, Quantitative Graph Theory: Mathematical Foundations and Applications presents and demonstrates existing and novel methods for analyzing graphs quantitatively. Incorporating interdisciplinary knowledge from graph theory, information theory, measurement theory, and statistical techniques,... more...

#### Algebraic Monoids, Group Embeddings, and Algebraic Combinatorics

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00#### Approximation of Set-Valued Functions

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 114.00This book is aimed at the approximation of set-valued functions with compact sets in an Euclidean space as values. The interest in set-valued functions is rather new. Such functions arise in various modern areas such as control theory, dynamical systems and optimization. The authors' motivation also comes from the newer field of geometric modeling,... more...

#### Mathematical Basics of Motion and Deformation in Computer Graphics

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00This synthesis lecture presents an intuitive introduction to the mathematics of motion and deformation in computer graphics. Starting with familiar concepts in graphics, such as Euler angles, quaternions, and affine transformations, we illustrate that a mathematical theory behind these concepts enables us to develop the techniques for efficient/effective... 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...
