Handbook of Spatial Logics, 9781402055867 (1402055862), Springer, 2007
Space, with its manifold layers of structure, has been an inexhaustible source of intellectual fascination since Antiquity. The science that began with the empirical discoveries of the Egyptian ‘rope-stretchers’, and that has inspired many of the greatest developments in mathematics over the centuries, now comprises such topics as spatial databases, automated geometrical reasoning and digital image processing. In this long intellectual history, however, one relatively recent, yet crucial, event stands out: the rise of the logical stance in geometry. Fundamental to this development is the analysis of geometrical structures in relation to the formal languages used to describe them, and the recognition of the special mathematical challenges—and opportunities—which such an analysis presents. The interplay between logic and geometry is the subject of this book.

By a spatial logic, we mean any formal language for describing geometrical entities and configurations, where ‘geometrical’ is understood in a broad sense. Unlike their well-studied temporal counterparts, spatial logics have been curiously neglected in the literature on mathematical logic, despite some early pioneering work by Tarski and others on the foundations of geometry and topology in the middle years of the previous century. Only in the last decade have spatial logics attracted renewed attention from logicians, partly as a response to work in such diverse fields as artificial intelligence, database theory, physics and philosophy.

Computational Intelligence in Telecommunications Networks
Computational Intelligence in Telecommunications Networks

Telecommunications has evolved and grown at an explosive rate in recent years and will undoubtedly continue to do so. As its functions, applications, and technology grow, it becomes increasingly complex and difficult, if not impossible, to meet the demands of a global network using conventional computing technologies. Computational...

Graphics Gems Iv/Book and Mac Version Disk (The Graphics Gems Series) (No.4)

We make images to communicate. The ultimate measure of the quality of our images is how well they communicate information and ideas from the creator’s mind to the perceiver’s mind. The efficiency of this communication, and the quality of our image, depends on both what we want to say and to whom we intend to say it. I believe that...

Evolutionary Scheduling (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Evolutionary Scheduling (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Evolutionary scheduling is a vital research domain at the interface of two important sciences - artificial intelligence and operational research. Scheduling problems are generally complex, large scale, constrained, and multi-objective in nature, and classical operational research techniques are often inadequate at solving them effectively. With the...
