Visibility Algorithms in the PlaneA human observer can effortlessly identify visible portions of geometric objects present in the environment. However, computations of visible portions of objects from a viewpoint involving thousands of objects is a time consuming task even for high speed computers. To solve such visibility problems, efficient algorithms have been designed. This...   Information Theory, Inference and Learning Algorithms"...a valuable reference...enjoyable and highly useful." American Scientist
"...an impressive book, intended as a class text on the subject of the title but having the character and robustness of a focused encyclopedia. The presentation is finely detailed, well documented, and stocked with artistic flourishes."...   Culture and Conquest in Mongol Eurasia'... will occupy and entertain specialists for some time to come ...' Bulletin of the School of Oriental & African Studies
'Thomas Allsen's book is a very compact and informative account of the cultural changes which took place during the supremacy of the Mongols. Allsen is able to share with the reader his impressive knowledge of... 

  Rippling: MetaLevel Guidance for Mathematical Reasoning The automation of mathematical reasoning has been an important topic of research almost since computers were invented. The new technique of rippling, described here for the first time in book form, is designed to be an approach to mathematical reasoning that takes into account ideas of heuristics and searching. Rippling addresses...   A Computational Introduction to Number Theory and Algebra"This is an outstanding and wellwritten book whose aim is to introduce the reader to a broad range of material  ranging from basic to relatively advanced  without requiring any prior knowledge on the part of the reader other than calculus and mathematical maturity. That the book succeeds at this goal is quite an accomplishment! ...this... 

An Introduction to Programming with Mathematica, Third Edition"Essential...a welcome addition to the literature. The choice of topics and their presentation are lucidly informed by considerable experience. The writing style is straightforward and clear. The authors stick resolutely to their goal of producing an introductory text, not a complete treatment, on programming in Mathematica. As such it is...   Networking Wireless SensorsWith its origins in the early nineties, the subject of wireless sensor networks has seen an explosive growth in interest in both academia and industry. In just the past five years several hundred papers have been written on the subject. I have written this book because I believe there is an urgent need to make this vast ...   Thermodynamics of Natural Systems'This is an excellent text of use to earth science senior undergraduates and graduates that need to develop a thorough understanding of thermodynamics.’?Geoscientist
Thermodynamics deals with energy levels and the transfer of energy between states of matter, and is therefore fundamental to all branches of science. This new... 

The Theory of Composites"...there existed no book or review paper that would allow a newcomer to get a general knowledge of the state of the art. The book of Graeme Milton fills this gap, and it does the job in a splendid manner that will make it the reference book on composite materials for a long time." Mathematical Reviews
The theory...   Visions of the Future: Chemistry and Life Science‘… you can’t deny the excitement the writers felt for what they are doing; and in these secular times such excitement must serve to replace the fear of the Lord as the beginning of wisdom.’?Sir Brian Pippard, Times Higher Education Supplement
‘I enjoyed these glimpses of what is going on and (always a good...
