Feynman Lectures On Computation

Feynman Lectures On ComputationWhen, in 1984 86, Richard P Feynman gave his famous course on computation at the California Institute of Technology, he asked Tony Hey to adapt his lecture notes into a book Although led by Feynman, the course also featured, as occasional guest speakers, some of the most brilliant men in science a

Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and Computation

Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and ComputationIt has been than 20 years since this classic book on formal languages, automata theory, and computational complexity was first published With this long awaited revision, the authors continue to present the theory in a concise and straightforward manner, now with an eye out for the practical ap

Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies

Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, StrategiesThe human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains.If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains i

Introduction to Algorithms

Introduction to AlgorithmsThis title covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers Each chapter is relatively self contained and can be used as a unit of study The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone

The Mathematical Theory of Communication

The Mathematical Theory of CommunicationScientific knowledge grows at a phenomenal pace but few books have had as lasting an impact or played as important a role in our modern world as The Mathematical Theory of Communication, published originally as a paper on communication theory in the Bell System Technical Journal than fifty yea

Code

CodeWhat do flashlights, the British invasion, black cats, and seesaws have to do with computers In CODE, they show us the ingenious ways we manipulate language and invent new means of communicating with each other And through CODE, we see how this ingenuity and our very human compulsion to communicat

Information Theory, Inference and Learning Algorithms

Information Theory, Inference and Learning AlgorithmsInformation theory and inference, often taught separately, are here united in one entertaining textbook These topics lie at the heart of many exciting areas of contemporary science and engineering communication, signal processing, data mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, computational
