In today’s world, analytical thinking is a critical part of any solid education. An important segment of this kind of reasoning—one that cuts across many disciplines—is discrete mathematics. Discrete math concerns counting, probability, (sophisticated forms of) addition, and limit processes over discrete sets. Combinatorics, graph...

Many colleges and universities offer a course in discrete mathematics. Students
taking these courses are from many disciplines, one of the largest
being computer science. As a part of the Mathematics Across the Curriculum
project at Dartmouth, supported by the National Science Foundation,1
we proposed to create a discrete mathematics...

Quantum computers will break today's most popular public-key cryptographic systems, including RSA, DSA, and ECDSA. This book introduces the reader to the next generation of cryptographic algorithms, the systems that resist quantum-computer attacks: in particular, post-quantum public-key encryption systems and post-quantum public-key signature...

This book is an introduction to the theories of Special and General Relativity. The target audience are physicists, engineers and applied scientists who are looking for an understandable introduction to the topic - without too much new mathematics. The fundamental equations of Einstein's theory of Special and General Relativity are...

In recent years, a great number of publications have explored the use of genetic algorithms as a tool for designing fuzzy systems.
