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

Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 102.75Ranging 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...

#### Parameterized Complexity Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 88.58Parameterized complexity theory is a recent branch of computational complexity theory that provides a framework for a refined analysis of hard algorithmic problems. The central notion of the theory, fixed-parameter tractability, has led to the development of various new algorithmic techniques and a whole new theory of intractability. This book is... more...

#### Complexity Explained

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 70.86This book explains why complex systems research is important in understanding the structure, function and dynamics of complex natural and social phenomena. Readers will learn the basic concepts and methods of complex system research. more...

#### Hypercomputation

Springer US 2008; US$ 100.39This book provides a thorough description of hypercomputation, covering all attempts at devising conceptual hypermachines and all new promising computational paradigms that may eventually lead to the construction of a hypermachine. more...

#### Coping with Complexity: Model Reduction and Data Analysis

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 177.17This volume contains the extended version of selected talks given at the international research workshop "Coping with Complexity: Model Reduction and Data Analysis", Ambleside, UK, August 31 – September 4, 2009. The book is deliberately broad in scope and aims at promoting new ideas and methodological perspectives. The topics of the chapters range... more...

#### Causality

OUP Oxford 2014; US$ 49.99Scientific and philosophical literature on causality has become highly specialised. It is hard to find suitable access points for students, young researchers, or professionals outside this domain. This book provides a guide to the complex literature, explains the scientific problems of causality and the philosophical tools needed to address them. more...

#### The P=NP Question and Gödel’s Lost Letter

Springer US 2010; US$ 106.30The P=NP question is one of the great problems of science, which has intrigued computer scientists and mathematicians for decades. This guide, originating from a weblog written by the author, covers historical developments and latest approaches to the problem. more...

#### Reliable and Autonomous Computational Science

Springer Basel 2011; US$ 141.73The increasing complexity of computer software and hardware makes their reliability harder to ensure. This book summarizes the state of the art of research in the diverse fields concerned, with designs, case studies, and experimental and theoretical data. more...

#### Nonlinear Dimensionality Reduction

Springer New York 2007; US$ 129.92This book reviews well-known methods for reducing the dimensionality of numerical databases as well as recent developments in nonlinear dimensionality reduction. All are described from a unifying point of view, which highlights their respective strengths and shortcomings. more...

#### Proceedings of the European Conference on Complex Systems 2012

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 200.79The European Conference on Complex Systems, held under the patronage of the Complex Systems Society, is an annual event that has become the leading European conference devoted to complexity science. ECCS'12, its ninth edition, took place in Brussels, during the first week of September 2012. It gathered about 650 scholars representing a wide range... more...
