Neural Network Modeling offers a cohesive approach to the statistical mechanics and principles of cybernetics as a basis for neural network modeling. It brings together neurobiologists and the engineers who design intelligent automata to understand the physics of collective behavior pertinent to neural elements and the self-control aspects of neurocybernetics. The theoretical perspectives and explanatory projections portray the most current information in the field, some of which counters certain conventional concepts in the visualization of neuronal interactions.
The interconnected biological neurons and the network of their artificial counterparts have been modeled in
physioanatomical perspectives, largely via cognitive considerations and in terms of physical reasonings based
on statistical mechanics of interacting units. The overall objective of this book is to present a cohesive and
comprehensive compendium elaborating the considerations of statistical mechanics and cybernetic principles
in modeling real (biological) neurons as well as neuromimetic artificial networks. While the perspectives of
statistical mechanics on neural modeling address the physics of interactions associated with the collective
behavior of neurons, the cybernetic considerations describe the science of optimal control over complex
neural processes. The purpose of this book is, therefore, to highlight the common intersection of statistical
mechanics and cybernetics with the universe of the neural complex in terms of associated stochastical
In the state-of-the-art data-processing systems, neuromimetic networks have gained limited popularity largely
due to the fragmentary knowledge of neurological systems which has consistently impeded the realistic
mathematical modeling of the associated cybernetics. Notwithstanding the fact that modern information
processing hinges on halfway adoption of biological perspectives on neurons, the concordant high-level and
intelligent processing endeavors are stretched through the self-organizing architecture of real neurons. Such
architectures are hierarchically structured on the basis of interconnection networks which represent the
inherent aspects of neuronal interactions.
Challenging Mathematical Problems With Elementary Solutions (Volume 2)
This volume contains seventy-four problems. The statements of the problems are given first, followed by a section giving complete solutions. Answers and hints are given at the end of the book. For most of the problems the reader is advised to find a solution by himself. After solving the problem, he should check his answer against the one given...

HTML5 Guidelines for Web Developers
In 2010, HTML5 became the buzzword on the web developer scene. Large companies,
such as Google, Apple, and Microsoft, began to use the new technology.
The popularity of the catchword HTML5 grew, not least of all because of the
heated debate between Apple and Adobe over whether this would mean the end
In this book,...
