Introduction to Information Theory and Data Compression, Second EditionAn effective blend of carefully explained theory and practical applications, this text imparts the fundamentals of both information theory and data compression. Although the two topics are related, this unique text allows either topic to be presented independently, and it was specifically designed so that the data compression section requires...   Chaos and Fractals: An Elementary Introduction
This book provides the reader with an elementary introduction to chaos and fractals, suitable for students with a background in elementary algebra, without assuming prior coursework in calculus or physics. It introduces the key phenomena of chaos  aperiodicity, sensitive dependence on initial conditions, bifurcations  via simple iterated...   Games, Puzzles, and Computation
The authors show that there are underlying mathematical reasons for why games and puzzles are challenging (and perhaps why they are so much fun). They also show that games and puzzles can serve as powerful models of computationâquite different from the usual models of automata and circuitsâoffering a new way of thinking about... 


A HalfCentury of Automata Theory: Celebration and InspirationSuggests Automata Theory may be poised for another period of significant advance, similar to that in the 1960s and 1970s.  Mathematical Reviews, 2002
This volume gathers lectures by 8 distinguished pioneers of automata theory, including two Turing Award winners. In each contribution, the early developments of...     

Disruptive Security Technologies with Mobile Code and PeertoPeer NetworksThe traditional fortress mentality of system security has proven ineffective to attacks by disruptive technologies. This is due largely to their reactive nature. Disruptive security technologies, on the other hand, are proactive in their approach to attacks. They allow systems to adapt to incoming threats, removing many of the vulnerabilities...
