"This is a book about scheduling algorithms. … The book contains eleven chapters. … Most of the chapters contain the summarized complexity results. In this edition the complexity columns have been updated. The book is completed by the bibliography which also has been updated and...

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...

This book is intended as a text/reference for students, researchers, and professors interested in physical and biomedical applications of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Both the theoretical and practical aspects of MRI are emphasized. The book begins with a comprehensive discussion of the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) phenomenon based...

Bioinformatics is an emerging field in which statistical and computational techniques
are used extensively to analyze and interpret biological data obtained
from high-throughput genomic technologies. Genomic technologies allow us
to monitor thousands of biological processes going on inside living organisms
in one snapshot, and are...

Explosive growth in the size of spatial databases has highlighted the need for spatial
data analysis and spatial data mining techniques to mine the interesting but implicit
spatial patterns within these large databases. Extracting useful and interesting patterns
from massive geo-spatial datasets is important for many application...

An excellent tutorial and practical users guide - far more accessible than the competition.,Professor Alan F. Murray, University of Edinburgh, UK. ... deserves a place on the neural network practitioners bookshelf ...,Proceedings of the Institution of Electrical Engineers,

Neural networks have shown enormous potential for...

Controversy over human evolution remains widespread. However, the human genome project and genetic sequencing of many other species have provided myriad precise and unambiguous genetic markers that establish our evolutionary relationships with other mammals. Human Evolution: Genes, Genealogies and Phylogenies identifies and explains these...

Advances in Mathematical Modeling for Reliability discusses fundamental issues on mathematical modeling in reliability theory and its applications. Beginning with an extensive discussion of graphical modeling and Bayesian networks, the focus shifts towards repairable systems: a discussion about how sensitive availability calculations parameter...

In general, there is a perception that Calculus is an extremely difficult subject, probably because
the required number of good teachers and good books are not available. We know that books
cannot replace teachers, but we are of the opinion that, good books can definitely reduce
dependence on teachers, and students can gain more...

Scaling is a mathematical transformation that enlarges or diminishes objects. The technique is used in a variety of areas, including finance and image processing. This book is organized around the notions of scaling phenomena and scale invariance. The various stochastic models commonly used to describe scaling ? self-similarity, long-range...

This thesis presents several precise techniques that analyze object-oriented languages for security violations, together with evaluations on Java benchmarks. The key question that will be targeted throughout this work is “Can a given statement directly or indirectly influence another statement, and if this is possible, how can this...

Our 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...
