Probability and Algorithms

Buy

Some of the hardest computational problems have been successfully attacked through the use of probabilistic algorithms, which have an element of randomness to them. Concepts from the field of probability are also increasingly useful in analyzing the performance of algorithms, broadening our understanding beyond that provided by the worst-case or average-case analyses.

This book surveys both of these emerging areas on the interface of the mathematical sciences and computer science. It is designed to attract new researchers to this area and provide them with enough background to begin explorations of their own.

Super-Recursive Algorithms (Monographs in Computer Science)
Super-Recursive Algorithms (Monographs in Computer Science)
This book introduces the new realm of superrecursive algorithms and the development of mathematical models for them. Although many still believe that only recursive algorithms exist and that only some of them are realizable, there are many situations in which people actually work with superrecursive algorithms....

Markov Chains: Models, Algorithms and Applications (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)
Markov Chains: Models, Algorithms and Applications (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)
Markov chains are a particularly powerful and widely used tool for analyzing a variety of stochastic (probabilistic) systems over time. This monograph will present a series of Markov models, starting from the basic models and then building up to higher-order models. Included in the higher-order discussions are multivariate models, higher-order...
