This collaborative volume presents recent trends arising from the fruitful interaction between the themes of combinatorics on words, automata and formal language theory, and number theory. Presenting several important tools and concepts, the authors also reveal some of the exciting and important relationships that exist between these...

Computer and communication networks are among society's most important infrastructures. The internet, in particular, is a giant global network of networks with central control or administration. It is a paradigm of a complex system, where complexity may arise from different sources: topological structure, network evolution, connection and node...

The sliding mode control methodology has proven effective in dealing with complex dynamical systems affected by disturbances, uncertainties and unmodeled dynamics. Robust control technology based on this methodology has been applied to many real-world problems, especially in the areas of aerospace control, electric power systems,...

Micro and nanosystems represent a major scientific and technological challenge, with actual and potential applications in almost all fields of the human activity. The aim of the present book is to present how concepts from dynamical control systems (modeling, estimation, observation, identification, feedback control) can be adapted and...

This self-contained introduction to modern cryptography emphasizes the mathematics behind the theory of public key cryptosystems and digital signature schemes. The book focuses on these key topics while developing the mathematical tools needed for the construction and security analysis of diverse cryptosystems. Only basic linear algebra is required...

Prediction of behavior of the dynamical systems, analysis and modeling of its structure is vitally important problem in engineering, economy and science today.

Examples of such systems can be seen in the world around us and of course in almost every scientific discipline including such “exotic” domains like the...

Introduction to Computational Modeling Using C and Open-Source Tools presents the fundamental principles of computational models from a computer science perspective. It explains how to implement these models using the C programming language. The software tools used in the book include the Gnu Scientific Library (GSL), which...

[A]ll of the appers of this volume have a consistent scientific value. - Analele Stiintifice al Universitatii al I. Cuza

Celebrating the work of world-renowned mathematician Sam B. Nadler, Jr., this reference examines the most recent advances in the analysis of continua. The book offers articles on the contributions of Professor...

Mobile robots are widely applied in a range of applications from transportation, surveillance through to health care. In all these applications it is clearly important to be able to analyse and control the performance of the mobile robot and it is therefore surprising that formalised methods to achieve this are not readily available. This book...

"This interesting monograph is devoted to the study of multi-agent, populations of biological cells and robot teams. … The main objective of the approach is to provide solutions to the problem of how dynamics of an individual agent propagates to the population dynamics. … This original monograph has a wide...

Take full advantage of all the powerful capabilities of Mathematica with help from this hands-on guide. Filled with examples and step-by-step explanations, Mathematica Demystified takes you from your very first calculation all the way to plotting complex fractals.

Promptly growing demand for telecommunication services and information interchange has led to the fact that communication became one of the most dynamical branches of an infrastructure of a modern society. The book introduces to the bases of classical MDP theory; problems of a finding optimal Ð¡ÐÐ¡ in models are investigated and...
