Codes and Algebraic Curves
ISBN: 9780198500391 / Angielski / Twarda / 208 str. A fascinating branch of mathematics since antiquity, the geometry of curves has been extensively developed and become highly abstract. Recently links have been made with the subject of error correction, leading to the creation of geometric Goppa codes, a new and important area of coding theory. This book is an expanded and updated version of one part of the author's successful book ErrorCorrecting Codes and Finite Fields. Here he gives an elementary introduction to Goppa codes and includes many examples, calculations, and applications. The first part of the book emphasizes motivations,...

Basic Concepts in Information Theory and Coding: The Adventures of Secret Agent 00111
ISBN: 9780306445446 / Angielski / Twarda / 432 str. Basic Concepts in Information Theory and Coding is an outgrowth of a one semester introductory course that has been taught at the University of Southern California since the mid1960s. Lecture notes from that course have evolved in response to student reaction, new technological and theoretical develop ments, and the insights of faculty members who have taught the course (in cluding the three of us). In presenting this material, we have made it accessible to a broad audience by limiting prerequisites to basic calculus and the ele mentary concepts of discrete probability theory. To keep the...

Analysis and Probability: Wavelets, Signals, Fractals
ISBN: 9780387295190 / Angielski / Twarda / 280 str. If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is. John von Neumann While this is a course in analysis, our approach departs from the beaten path in some ways. Firstly, we emphasize a variety of connections to themes from neighboring fields, such as wavelets, fractals and signals; topics typically not included in a gradu ate analysis course. This in turn entails excursions into domains with a probabilistic flavor. Yet the diverse parts of the book follow a common underlying thread, and to gether they constitute a good...

Coding and Information Theory
ISBN: 9780387978123 / Angielski / Twarda / 488 str. This book is an introduction to information and coding theory at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. It assumes a basic knowledge of probability and modern algebra, but is otherwise self contained. The intent is to describe as clearly as possible the fundamental issues involved in these subjects, rather than covering all aspects in an encyclopedic fashion. The first quarter of the book is devoted to information theory, including a proof of Shannon's famous Noisy Coding Theorem. The remainder of the book is devoted to coding theory and is independent of the information theory...

The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google
ISBN: 9780393062281 / Angielski / Twarda / 278 str. A hundred years ago, companies stopped producing their own power with steam engines and generators and plugged into the newly built electric grid. The cheap power pumped out by electric utilities not only changed how businesses operated but also brought the modern world into existence. Today a similar revolution is under way. Companies are dismantling their private computer systems and tapping into rich services delivered over the Internet. This time it's computing that's turning into a utility. The shift is already remaking the computer industry, bringing new competitors like Google to the...

ReactionDiffusion Computers
ISBN: 9780444520425 / Angielski / Twarda / 334 str. The book introduces a hot topic of novel and emerging computing paradigms and architectures computation by travelling waves in reactiondiffusion media. A reactiondiffusion computer is a massively parallel computing device, where the microvolumes of the chemical medium act as elementary fewbit processors, and chemical species diffuse and react in parallel. In the reactiondiffusion computer both the data and the results of the computation are encoded as concentration profiles of the reagents, or local disturbances of concentrations, whilst the computation per se is performed via the...

Lectures on the CurryHoward Isomorphism
ISBN: 9780444520777 / Angielski / Twarda / 442 str. The CurryHoward isomorphism states an amazing correspondence between systems of formal logic as encountered in proof theory and computational calculi as found in type theory. For instance,
minimal propositional logic corresponds to simply typed lambdacalculus, firstorder logic corresponds to dependent types, secondorder logic corresponds to polymorphic types, sequent calculus is related to explicit substitution, etc. The isomorphism has many aspects, even at the syntactic level: The CurryHoward isomorphism states an amazing correspondence between systems of formal logic as encountered in proof theory and computational calculi...

Computational Complexity: A Quantitative Perspective
ISBN: 9780444828415 / Angielski / Twarda / 352 str. There has been a common perception that computational complexity is a theory of "bad news" because its most typical results assert that various realworld and innocentlooking tasks are infeasible. In fact, "bad news" is a relative term, and, indeed, in some situations (e.g., in cryptography), we want an adversary to not be able to perform a certain task. However, a "bad news" result does not automatically become useful in such a scenario. For this to happen, its hardness features have to be quantitatively evaluated and shown to manifest extensively.
The book undertakes a quantitative... There has been a common perception that computational complexity is a theory of "bad news" because its most typical results assert that various realw...

Quantum Approach to Informatics
ISBN: 9780471736103 / Angielski / Twarda / 238 str. An essential overview of quantum information
Information, whether inscribed as a mark on a stone tablet or encoded as a magnetic domain on a hard drive, must be stored in a physical object and thus made subject to the laws of physics. Traditionally, information processing such as computation occurred in a framework governed by laws of classical physics. However, information can also be stored and processed using the states of matter described by nonclassical quantum theory. Understanding this quantum information, a fundamentally different type of information, has been a major... An essential overview of quantum information
