Applied Fuzzy Arithmetic provides a well-structured compendium that offers both a deeper knowledge about the theory of fuzzy arithmetic and an extensive view on its applications in the engineering sciences, making it a resource for students, researchers, and practical engineers. The first part of the book gives an introduction...

This book is devoted to reporting innovative and significant progress in fuzzy system engineering. Given the maturation of fuzzy logic, this book is dedicated to exploring the recent breakthroughs in fuzziness and soft computing in favour of intelligent system engineering. This monograph presents novel developments of the fuzzy theory as well as...

The only certainty in investing — and probably in life — is uncertainty. That can make investing seem like an adventure; however, it’s more like a transcontinental expedition than a day trip to an amusement park. You can’t anticipate the turbulent waters or the snowstorms you may encounter along the way, but you’ll...

In just 24 sessions of one hour or less, you’ll learn how to use SQL to build effective databases, efficiently retrieve your data, and manage everything from performance to security! Using this book’s straightforward, step-by-step approach, you’ll learn hands-on through practical examples. Each lesson...

It is indeed a pleasure to prepare the foreword for vidual surgeons. In addition, it can be read from this text, mainly because I am now a senior ortho- front to back as a history of orthopedics. We are pedist who has known so many of the great ortho- all indebted to S. B. Mosto? for this fascinating pedists who are described in such great...

As the deployment of Linux systems in production environments has accelerated, Linux administrators have longed for a book that addresses the challenges of this complex and exciting frontier. Linux Administration Handbook was written with this audience in mind. This book serves both as a valuable tutorial for the novice administrator and as a...

This book is one of a series written by professional mathematicians in order to make some important mathematical ideas interesting and understandable to a large audience of high school students and laymen. Most of the volumes in the New Mathematical Library cover topics not usually included in the high school curriculum; they vary in difficulty,...

The TITLE of Volume 4 is Combinatorial Algorithms, and when I proposed it I was strongly inclined to add a subtitle: The Kind of Programming I Like Best. Mv editors have decided to tone down such exuberance, but the fact remains that programs with a combinatorial flavor have always been my favorites.

This 5 volume MRW (Major Reference Work) is entitled "Computer Aided and
Integrated Manufacturing Systems". A brief summary description of each of the
5 volumes will be noted in their respective PREFACES. An MRW is normally on
a broad subject of major importance on the international scene. Because of the
breadth of a major...

The study of surfaces with constant mean curvature (CMC) is one of the main topics in classical differential geometry. Moreover, CMC surfaces are important mathematical models for the physics of interfaces in the absence of gravity, where they separate two different media or for capillary phenomena. Further, as most techniques used in the...

In recent years, cryptographic techniques for protecting and hiding secret information have been included in directions of research on intelligent information management. Data can be managed securely due to the use of algorithms for ensuring the confidentiality of data, information splitting techniques as well as protocols for sharing...
