Think Complexity: Complexity Science and Computational Modeling
This book is inspired by boredom and fascination: boredom with the usual presentation of data structures and algorithms, and fascination with complex
systems. The problem with data structures is that they are often taught without a motivating context; the problem with complexity science is that it is
usually not taught at...   FiniteState Language Processing (Language, Speech, and Communication)
Finitestate devices, which include finitestate automata, graphs, and finitestate transducers, are in wide use in many areas of computer science. Recently, there has been a resurgence of the use of finitestate devices in all aspects of computational linguistics, including dictionary encoding, text processing, and speech processing. This...   Principles of Model CheckingOur growing dependence on increasingly complex computer and software systems necessitates the development of formalisms, techniques, and tools for assessing functional properties of these systems. One such technique that has emerged in the last twenty years is model checking, which systematically (and automatically) checks whether a model of a... 

Mathematical Models of Spoken LanguageHumans use language to convey meaningful messages to each other. Linguistic competence consists in the ability to express meaning reliably, not simply to obtain faithful lexical transcriptions. This invaluable reference tool is the product of many years' experience and research on language and speech technology. It presents the motivations for,...     


  Foundations of Computing
It may sound surprising that in computing, a field which develops so fast that the future often becomes the past without having been the present, there is nothing more stable and worthwhile learning than its foundations.
It may sound less surprising that in a field with such a revolutionary methodological impact on all sciences and...   Automated Reasoning: 4th International Joint Conference, IJCAR 2008, Sydney, NSW, Australia, August 1215, 2008, ProceedingsThis book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning, IJCAR 2008, held in Sydney, Australia, in August 2008. The 26 revised full research papers and 13 revised system descriptions presented together with 4 invited papers and a summary of the CASCJ4 systems competition were carefully...
