Written by prominent experts in the field, this monograph provides the first comprehensive, unified presentation of the structural, algorithmic and applied aspects of the theory of Boolean functions. The book focuses on algebraic representations of Boolean functions, especially disjunctive and conjunctive normal form representations. This framework looks at the fundamental elements of the theory (Boolean equations and satisfiability problems, prime implicants and associated short representations, dualization), an in-depth study of special classes of Boolean functions (quadratic, Horn, shellable, regular, threshold, read-once functions and their characterization by functional equations) and two fruitful generalizations of the concept of Boolean functions (partially defined functions and pseudo-Boolean functions). Several topics are presented here in book form for the first time. Because of the depth and breadth and its emphasis on algorithms and applications, this monograph will have special appeal for researchers and graduate students in discrete mathematics, operations research, computer science, engineering and economics.

This book contains revised and extended versions of selected papers from the 5th International Conference on Pattern Recognition, ICPRAM 2016, held in Rome, Italy, in February 2016. The 13 full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 125 initial submissions and describe up-to-date applications of pattern recognition techniques to real-world problems, interdisciplinary research, experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights that advance pattern recognition methods.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 24th International Workshop on Combinatorial Algorithms, IWOCA 2013, held in Rouen, France, in July 2013. The 33 revised full papers presented together with 10 short papers and 5 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 91 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on algorithms on graphs; algorithms on strings; discrete geometry and satisfiability.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing, SAT 2017, held in Melbourne, Australia, in August/September 2017. The 22 revised full papers, 5 short papers, and 3 tool papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 64 submissions. The papers are organized in the following topical sections: algorithms, complexity, and lower bounds; clause learning and symmetry handling; maximum satisfiability and minimal correction sets; parallel SAT solving; quantified Boolean formulas; satisfiability modulo theories; and SAT encodings.
The Boolean network (BN) is a mathematical model of genetic networks and other biological networks. Although extensive studies have been done on BNs from a viewpoint of complex systems, not so many studies have been undertaken from a computational viewpoint. This book presents rigorous algorithmic results on important computational problems on BNs, which include inference of a BN, detection of singleton and periodic attractors in a BN, and control of a BN. This book also presents algorithmic results on fundamental computational problems on probabilistic Boolean networks and a Boolean model of metabolic networks. Although most contents of the book are based on the work by the author and collaborators, other important computational results and techniques are also reviewed or explained. Contents: Preliminaries Boolean Networks Detection of Attractors Detection of Singleton Attractors Detection of Periodic Attractors Identification of Boolean Networks Control of Boolean Networks Predecessor and Observability Problems Semi-Tensor Product Approach Analysis of Metabolic Networks Probabilistic Boolean Networks Identification of Probabilistic Boolean Networks Control of Probabilistic Boolean Networks Readership: Graduate students and researchers working on string theory and related topics.
