"Professional Financial Computing Using Excel and VBA is an admirable exposition that bridges the theoretical underpinnings of financial engineering and its application which usually appears as a "black-box" software application. The book opens the black-box and reveals the architecture of risk-modeling and financial...

The University of Arizona Artificial Intelligence Lab (AI Lab) Dark Web project is a long-term scientific research program that aims to study and understand the international terrorism (Jihadist) phenomena via a computational, data-centric approach. We aim to collect "ALL" web content generated by international terrorist groups,...

It provides a thorough understanding of the subject and its applications. The book begins with an introduction to the basic features of a digital computer, number systems and binary arithmetic, Boolean algebra and logic gates, software, operating systems, and the internet. A major part of the book provides a detailed coverage of programming...

"The book presents a welcome selection and careful exposition of material that can be (and is) covered in a single course...In this reviewer's opinion, this would be an interesting text to use with a group of advanced students well-grounded in undergraduate mathematics and computer science, and would produce a valuable course for the...

One of the most valuable tools acquired in a university education, college algebra is essential for courses from the sciences to computing, engineering to mathematics. It can help you do better on placement exams, even before college, and it's useful in solving the computations...

From differentiation to integration — solve problems with ease

Got a grasp on the terms and concepts you need to know, but get lost halfway through a problem or, worse yet, not know where to begin? Have no fear! This hands-on guide focuses on helping you solve the many types of calculus problems you encounter in a...

This book covers all that is needed to write professional-level cryptographic code. An expanded and improved version of the very well received first edition, it includes approximately 100 pages of new material as well as numerous improvements in the original text.

Text focusing on the practical aspects of cryptography in C and C++,...

This thesis is concerned with the design of efficient algorithms for listing combinatorial structures. The research described here gives some answers to the following questions: which families of combinatorial structures have fast computer algorithms for listing their members, What general methods are useful for listing combinatorial...

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...
