By Michel Marie Deza, Monique Laurent (auth.)

Cuts and metrics are recognized items that come up - independently, yet with many deep and engaging connections - in varied fields: in graph thought, combinatorial optimization, geometry of numbers, distance geometry, combinatorial matrix thought, statistical physics, VLSI layout and so on. a major function of this booklet is its interdisciplinarity. The booklet encompasses a wealth of effects, from assorted mathematical disciplines, that are provided the following in a unified and accomplished demeanour. Geometric representations and strategies become the linking topic. This booklet will supply a different and precious resource for researchers and graduate scholars.

From the Reviews:

"This booklet is easily a milestone within the literature of integer programming and combinatorial optimization. It attracts from the interdisciplinarity of those fields because it gathers tools and effects from polytope idea, geometry of numbers, chance thought, layout and graph concept round gadgets, cuts and metrics. [… ] The e-book is particularly properly written [… ] The booklet can be rather well dependent. With wisdom concerning the proper phrases, you can still take pleasure in distinctive subsections with no being fullyyt accustomed to the remainder of the bankruptcy. This makes it not just an attractive examine e-book yet even a dictionary. [… ] in my view, the e-book is a gorgeous piece of labor. The longer one works with it, the extra attractive it becomes." Robert Weismantel, Optima fifty six (1997)

"… briefly, it is a very attention-grabbing publication that is great to have." Alexander I. Barvinok, MR 1460488 (98g:52001)

"… it is a huge and interesting e-book. As befits a booklet which includes fabric appropriate to such a lot of parts of arithmetic (and similar disciplines similar to records, physics, computing technology, and economics), it really is self-contained and written in a readable variety. furthermore, the index, bibliography, and desk of contents are all that they need to be in any such paintings; you will locate as a lot or as little introductory fabric as needed."

Conceptual Spaces: The Geometry of Thought

Inside cognitive technology, methods at present dominate the matter of modeling representations. The symbolic procedure perspectives cognition as computation concerning symbolic manipulation. Connectionism, a distinct case of associationism, versions institutions utilizing synthetic neuron networks. Peter Gardenfors deals his conception of conceptual representations as a bridge among the symbolic and connectionist ways.

The Art of the Intelligible (survey of mathematics in its conceptual development)

A compact survey, on the straightforward point, of a few of the main vital suggestions of arithmetic. realization is paid to their technical beneficial properties, old improvement and broader philosophical importance. all the a variety of branches of arithmetic is mentioned individually, yet their interdependence is emphasized all through.

Der Goldene Schnitt

Der Goldene Schnitt tritt seit der Antike in vielen Bereichen der Geometrie, Architektur, Musik, Kunst sowie der Philosophie auf, aber er erscheint auch in neueren Gebieten der Technik und der Fraktale. Dabei ist der Goldene Schnitt kein isoliertes Phänomen, sondern in vielen Fällen das erste und somit einfachste nichttriviale Beispiel im Rahmen weiterführender Verallgemeinerungen.

Complex Manifolds and Hyperbolic Geometry: II Iberoamerican Congress on Geometry, January 4-9, 2001, Cimat, Guanajuato, Mexico

This quantity derives from the second one Iberoamerican Congress on Geometry, held in 2001 in Mexico on the Centro de Investigacion en Matematicas A. C. , an across the world famous application of analysis in natural arithmetic. The convention issues have been selected with a watch towards the presentation of recent tools, fresh effects, and the construction of extra interconnections among the various study teams operating in complicated manifolds and hyperbolic geometry.
