Combinatorial Designs and Tournaments
ISBN: 9780198500292 / Angielski / Twarda / 256 str. The mathematics of tournament design are surprisingly subtle, and this book, an extensively revised version of Ellis Horwood's popular Combinatorial Designs: Construction Methods, provides a thorough introduction. It includes a new chapter on league schedules, which discusses round robin tournaments, venue sequences, and carryover effects. It also discusses balanced tournament designs, double schedules, and bridge and whist tournament design. Readable and authoritative, the book emphasizes throughout the historical development of the material and includes numerous examples and exercises...

Introduction to Discrete Mathematics with Isetl
ISBN: 9780387947822 / Angielski / Twarda / 196 str. Intended for first or secondyear undergraduates, this introduction to discrete mathematics covers the usual topics of such a course, but applies constructivist principles that promote  indeed, require  active participation by the student. Working with the programming language ISETL, whose syntax is close to that of standard mathematical language, the student constructs the concepts in her or his mind as a result of constructing them on the computer in the syntax of ISETL. This dramatically different approach allows students to attempt to discover concepts in a Socratic dialog with the...

Stochastic Networks
ISBN: 9780387948287 / Angielski / Miękka / 298 str. Two of the most exciting topics of current research in stochastic networks are the complementary subjects of stability and rare events  roughly, the former deals with the typical behavior of networks, and the latter with significant atypical behavior. Both are classical topics, of interest since the early days of queueing theory, that have experienced renewed interest mo tivated by new applications to emerging technologies. For example, new stability issues arise in the scheduling of multiple job classes in semiconduc tor manufacturing, the socalled "reentrant lines;" and a prominent need...

Combinatorial Methods in Density Estimation
ISBN: 9780387951171 / Angielski / Twarda / 209 str. Density estimation has evolved enormously since the days of bar plots and histograms, but researchers and users are still struggling with the problem of the selection of the bin widths. This text explores a new paradigm for the databased or automatic selection of the free parameters of density estimates in general so that the expected error is within a given constant multiple of the best possible error. The paradigm can be used in nearly all density estimates and for most model selection problems, both parametric and nonparametric. It is the first book on this topic. The text is intended for...

A Course in Combinatorics
ISBN: 9780521006019 / Angielski / Miękka / 602 str. Combinatorics, a subject dealing with ways of arranging and distributing objects, involves ideas from geometry, algebra, and analysis.

It has thus become an essential tool in many scientific fields. In this second edition the authors have made the text as comprehensive as possible, dealing in a unified manner with such topics as graph theory, extremal problems, designs, colorings, and codes. The depth and breadth of the coverage make the book a...

Random Graphs
ISBN: 9780521440813 / Angielski / Twarda / 268 str. The book is devoted to the study of classical combinatorial structures such as random graphs, permutations, and systems of random linear equations in finite fields. The author shows how the application of the generalized scheme of allocation in the study of random graphs and permutations reduces the combinatorial problems to classical problems of probability theory on the summation of independent random variables. He offers recent research by Russian mathematicians, including a discussion of equations containing an unknown permutation, and the first Englishlanguage presentation of techniques...
