Algorithms for Computer Algebra is the first comprehensive textbook to be published on the topic of computational symbolic mathematics. The book first develops the foundational material from modern algebra that is required for subsequent topics. It then presents a thorough development of modern computational algorithms for such...

However, in compiling a volume titled “DATA MINING: Foundations and Intelligent Paradigms: Volume 3: Medical, Health, Social, Biological and other Applications” we wish to introduce some of the latest developments to a broad audience of both specialists and non-specialists in this field.

Written for those who want to develop their knowledge of requirements engineering process, whether practitioners or students.

Using the latest research and driven by practical experience from industry, Requirements Engineering gives useful hints to practitioners on how to write and structure requirements. It...

Logic is a branch of philosophy, mathematics and computer science. It studies the required methods to determine whether a statement is true, such as reasoning and computation.

Proofs and Algorithms: Introduction to Logic and Computability is an introduction to the fundamental concepts of contemporary logic - those of a...

“Hypernumbers and Extrafunctions” presents a rigorous mathematical approach to operate with infinite values. First, concepts of real and complex numbers are expanded to include a new universe of numbers called hypernumbers which includes infinite quantities. This brief extends classical calculus based on real functions by...

The aim of this volume is to underline that promoting physical activity is crucial to preventing illness and maintaining our health, thus leading to a reduction in healthcare costs. Over the last decade studies have shown that physical exercise plays an important role in maintaining an individual's psycho-physical balance. Physical...

This comprehensive volume with contributions by over 30 of the world's leading rhinologists will help to shed light on this difficult topic.

Prof. Kountakis and Prof. Senior are well-known ENT-surgeons in the U.S. Prof. Draf is one of the most senior and most recognized ORL/Head- and Neck surgeon in Germany and world-wide.

Signal processing may broadly be considered to involve the recovery of information from physical observations. The received signal is usually disturbed by thermal, electrical, atmospheric or intentional interferences. Due to the random nature of the signal, statistical techniques play an important role in analyzing the signal. Statistics is...

This textbook explains the concepts and techniques required to write programs that can handle large amounts of data efficiently. Project-oriented and classroom-tested, the book presents a number of important algorithms supported by examples that bring meaning to the problems faced by computer programmers. The idea of computational complexity...

This book is a snapshot of current research in multiscale modeling, computations and applications. It covers fundamental mathematical theory, numerical algorithms as well as practical computational advice for analysing single and multiphysics models containing a variety of scales in time and space. Complex fluids, porous media flow and...

This volume reviews advances in cancer chemotherapy research over the last 10 years. Chapters written by leading experts in their field reflect a range of current medicinal chemistry approaches to small molecule drugs. Each chapter covers the drug target and biological rationale, chemotypes, clinical status and future prospects in this...

The topics of control engineering and signal processing continue to flourish and
develop. In common with general scientific investigation, new ideas, concepts and
interpretations emerge quite spontaneously and these are then discussed, used,
discarded or subsumed into the prevailing subject paradigm. Sometimes these
innovative...
