Concurrency Theory: Calculi and Automata for Modelling by Howard Bowman

By Howard Bowman

Concurrency Theory is a synthesis of 1 of the key threads of theoretical desktop technology examine targeting languages and graphical notations for describing collections of concurrently evolving parts that engage via synchronous communique. the most specification notation desirous about during this booklet is LOTOS. an intensive creation to this actual method calculus is given, highlighting how the method differs from competitor suggestions, akin to CCS and CSP.

The publication covers linear-time semantics, in response to strains; branching-time semantics, utilizing either classified transition platforms and refusals; and real concurrency semantics, utilizing (bundle) occasion constructions. moreover, the ebook discusses speaking automata methods (both finite and endless state); how the speculation should be generalised to the timed surroundings; and, eventually, the authors generalise the (finite and limitless country) speaking automata notations to yield timed automata and discrete timed automata.

This publication represents a complete go through the spectrum of concurrency concept study: From untimed to timed syntax and semantics and method calculi to automata. Researchers and practitioners within the box of concurrency thought, in addition to MSc and PhD scholars, will locate the excellent assurance during this e-book crucial reading.

Discrete Mathematics for Computing (Grassroots) by Peter Grossman

By Peter Grossman

Written with a transparent and casual variety "Discrete arithmetic for Computing" is aimed toward first-year undergraduate computing scholars with little or no mathematical history. it's a low-level introductory textual content which takes the subjects at a gradual speed, masking the entire crucial fabric that varieties the historical past for reviews in computing and data structures. This variation comprises new sections on evidence tools and recurrences, and the examples were up-to-date all through to mirror the alterations in computing because the first version.

The nonlinear workbook: chaos, fractals, neural networks, by Willi-Hans Steeb

By Willi-Hans Steeb

The learn of nonlinear dynamical platforms has complicated vastly within the final twenty years, creating a massive effect on technology and expertise. This booklet offers all of the ideas and techniques utilized in nonlinear dynamics. The suggestions and underlying arithmetic are mentioned intimately. The numerical and symbolic tools are carried out in C++, SymbolicC++ and Java. Object-oriented suggestions also are utilized. The ebook includes greater than one hundred fifty ready-to-run courses. The textual content has additionally been designed for a one-year path at either the junior and senior degrees in nonlinear dynamics. the themes mentioned within the ebook are a part of e-learning and distance studying classes carried out by way of the foreign college for medical Computing.

Coloured Petri Nets: Modelling and Validation of Concurrent by Kurt Jensen, Lars M. Kristensen

By Kurt Jensen, Lars M. Kristensen

Coloured Petri Nets (CPN) is a graphical language for modelling and validating concurrent and dispensed structures, and different structures during which concurrency performs a massive position. the improvement of such platforms is very difficult due to inherent intricacies like attainable nondeterminism and the giant variety of attainable execution sequences.

In this textbook Jensen and Kristensen introduce the constructs of the CPN modelling language and current the similar research equipment intimately. in addition they offer a finished street map for the sensible use of CPN through showcasing chosen business case reviews that illustrate the sensible use of CPN modelling and validation for layout, specification, simulation, verification and implementation in numerous software domains.

Their presentation essentially goals at readers drawn to the sensible use of CPN. hence all recommendations and constructs are first informally brought via examples after which through formal definitions (which will be skipped). The publication is preferably appropriate for a one-semester path at a complicated undergraduate or graduate point, and during its powerful software examples may also serve for self-study. An accompanying web site deals extra fabric equivalent to slides, routines and venture proposals.
