Rapid developments in the field of genetic algorithms along with the popularity of the first edition precipitated this completely revised, thoroughly updated second edition of The Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithms. Like its predecessor, this edition helps practitioners stay up to date on recent developments in the field and provides...

Since the publication of the bestselling first edition, many advances have been made in exploratory data analysis (EDA). Covering innovative approaches for dimensionality reduction, clustering, and visualization, Exploratory Data Analysis with MATLAB^{®}, Second Edition uses numerous examples and applications to...

Overcoming many challenges, data mining has already established discipline capability in many domains. discusses advances in modern data mining research in today's rapidly growing global and technological...

Fuzzy systems and neural networks have attracted the growing interest of researchers, scientists,
engineers, practitioners, and students in various scientific and engineering areas.
Fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic are based on the way the brain deals with inexact information,
while neural networks (or artificial neural networks) are modeled...

"Few false ideas have more firmly gripped the minds of so many intelligent men than the one that, if they just tried, they could invent a cipher that no one could break," writes David Kahn in this massive (almost 1,200 pages) volume. Most of The Codebreakers focuses on the 20th century, especially World War II. But its reach is...

This book is really the end product of over a decade of work, on and off, on
diagrammatic reasoning in artificial intelligence (AI). In developing this book, I
drew inspiration from a variety of sources: two experimental studies, the development
of two prototype systems, an extensive literature review and analysis in
AI,...

The Routledge Guidebook to Heidegger’s Being and Time examines the work of one of the most controversial thinkers of the twentieth century.

Henry Frederick Baker (1866-1956) was a renowned British mathematician specialising in algebraic geometry. First published between 1922 and 1925, this six-volume work provides a detailed insight into the geometry which was developing at the time of publication. Volume 1 describes the foundations of projective geometry.

There are numerous detailed books on firearms available for enthusiasts, the vast majority of the books concentrating on the physical aspects of firearms. Very little has been published on the chemical aspects of firearms and ammunition and what has been published is sparse and fragmented in the literature. One of the reasons for this is that...

A systematic introduction to partial differential equations and modern finite element methods for their efficient numerical solution

Partial Differential Equations and the Finite Element Method provides a much-needed, clear, and systematic introduction to modern theory of partial differential equations (PDEs) and...
