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.

Set Functions Games And Capacities In Decision Making

The book provides a thorough treatment of set functions, games and capacities as well as integrals with respect to capacities and games, in a mathematical rigorous presentation and in view of application to decision making. After a short chapter introducing some required basic knowledge (linear programming, polyhedra, ordered sets) and notation, the first part of the book consists of three long chapters developing the mathematical aspects. This part is not related to a particular application field and, by its neutral mathematical style, is useful to the widest audience. It gathers many results and notions which are scattered in the literature of various domains (game theory, decision, combinatorial optimization and operations research). The second part consists of three chapters, applying the previous notions in decision making and modelling: decision under uncertainty, decision with multiple criteria, possibility theory and Dempster-Shafer theory.

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. Keywords: Boolean Networks;Bioinformatics;Systems Biology;Combinatorial Algorithms;AttractorsReview: Key Features: Unique book focusing on computational aspects of Boolean networks Provide computational foundations on Boolean networks Contain recent and up-to-date results on algorithms for Boolean networks

Mathematics is one of the most basic -- and most ancient -- types of knowledge. Yet the details of its historical development remain obscure to all but a few specialists. The two-volume Companion Encyclopedia of the History and Philosophy of the Mathematical Sciences recovers this mathematical heritage, bringing together many of the world's leading historians of mathematics to examine the history and philosophy of the mathematical sciences in a cultural context, tracing their evolution from ancient times to the twentieth century. In 176 concise articles divided into twelve parts, contributors describe and analyze the variety of problems, theories, proofs, and techniques in all areas of pure and applied mathematics, including probability and statistics. This indispensable reference work demonstrates the continuing importance of mathematics and its use in physics, astronomy, engineering, computer science, philosophy, and the social sciences. Also addressed is the history of higher education in mathematics. Carefully illustrated, with annotated bibliographies of sources for each article, The Companion Encyclopedia is a valuable research tool for students and teachers in all branches of mathematics. Contents of Volume 1: •Ancient and Non-Western Traditions •The Western Middle Ages and the Renaissance •Calculus and Mathematical Analysis •Functions, Series, and Methods in Analysis •Logic, Set Theories, and the Foundations of Mathematics •Algebras and Number Theory Contents of Volume 2: •Geometries and Topology •Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering •Physics, Mathematical Physics, and Electrical Engineering •Probability, Statistics, and the Social Sciences •Higher Education and Institutions •Mathematics and Culture •Select Bibliography, Chronology, Biographical Notes, and Index
