Volume I presents one-variable calculus with an introduction to linear algebra and volume II presents multi-variable calculus and linear algebra, with applications to differential equations and probability

Humans use language to convey meaningful messages to each other. Linguistic competence consists in the ability to express meaning reliably, not simply to obtain faithful lexical transcriptions. This invaluable reference tool is the product of many years' experience and research on language and speech technology. It presents the motivations for,...

This text offers an introduction to error-correcting linear codes for graduate students in mathematics, computer science and engineering and researchers. The book differs from other standard texts in its emphasis on the classification of codes by means of isometry classes. The relevant algebraic concepts like finite fields and group actions are...

Interactive curve modeling techniques and their applications are extremely useful in a number of academic and industrial settings, and specifically play a significant role in multidisciplinary problem solving, such as in font design, designing objects, CAD/CAM, medical operations, scientific data visualization, virtual reality, character...

New publisher! Corrected version! Demonstrating analytical and numerical techniques for attacking problems in the application of mathematics, this well-organized, clearly written text presents the logical relationship and fundamental notations of analysis. Buck discusses analysis not solely as a tool, but as a subject in its own right. This...

"Disappearing Cryptography is a witty and entertaining look at the world of information hiding. Peter Wayner provides an intuitive perspective of the many techniques, applications, and research directions in the area of steganography. The sheer breadth of topics is outstanding and makes this book truly unique. A must read for...

The geometry of lines occurs naturally in such different areas as sculptured surface machining, computation of offsets and medial axes, surface reconstruction for reverse engineering, geometrical optics, kinematics and motion design, and modeling of developable surfaces. This book covers line geometry from various viewpoints and aims towards...
