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...

Provides a theoretically sound, technically accurate, and complete description of the basic knowledge and ideas that constitute a modern system for speech recognition by machine. Covers production, perception, and acoustic-phonetic characterization of the speech signal; signal processing and analysis...

Must reading for anyone interested in acquiring a thorough understanding of fuzzy logic, its role in soft computing, and its application to control and related fields.

-Lotfi A. Zadeh From the Foreword

Fuzzy Control Systems explores one of the most active areas of research involving fuzzy set theory. The...

Computational geometry concerns itself with designing and analyzing algorithms for solving geometric problems. The field has reached a high level of sophistication, and very complicated algorithms have been designed. However, it is also useful to develop more practical algorithms, so long as they are based on rigorous methods. One such method...

The Complete Guide to Software Testing Bill Hetzel Gain a new perspective to software testing as a life cycle activity, not merely as something that happens at the end of coding. This edition is completely revised and contains new chapters on testing methodologies including ANSI standard-based testing—a survey of testing practices. Dr....

This introduction to computational geometry is designed for beginners. It emphasizes simple randomized methods, developing basic principles with the help of planar applications, beginning with deterministic algorithms and shifting to randomized algorithms as the problems become more complex. It also explores higher dimensional advanced...

Computer vision seeks a process that starts with a noisy, ambiguous signal from a TV
camera and ends with a high-level description of discrete objects located in 3-dimensional
space and identified in a human classification. In this book we address this process at
several levels. We first treat the low-level image-processing issues of...

This is the definitive presentation of the history, development and philosophical significance of non-Euclidean geometry as well as of the rigorous foundations for it and for elementary Euclidean geometry, essentially according to Hilbert. Appropriate for liberal arts students, prospective high school teachers, math. majors, and even bright high...

The Mathematica Handbook is intended to provide a convenient reference of all built-in Mathematica Version 2.0 objects to both beginning and advanced users of Mathematica alike. This book arose out of the need to have a convenient reference of all Mathematica commands and objects along with typical examples of them. In addition, The Mathematica...

Transformational programming and parallel computation are two emerging fields that may ultimately depend on each other for success. Perhaps because ad hoc programming on sequential machines is so straightforward, sequential programming methodology has had little impact outside the academic community, and transformational methodology has had little...

A major revision of a textbook on intermediate macroeconomics, a new emphasis on long run growth is now added to the book's strengths and even more international material - particularly international policy examples - is featured. "Macroeconomics", by two internationally known economists, offers a balance of theory, economic...
