Theory and Applications of Models of Computation: Third International Conference, TAMC 2006, Beijing, China

In several practical circumstances we have to solve a problem whose instance is not a priori completely known. Situations of this kind occur in computer systems and networks management, in financial decision making, in robotics etc. Problems that have to be solved without a complete knowledge of the instance are called on-line problems. The analysis of properties of on-line problems and the design of algorithmic techniques for their solution (on-line algorithms) have been the subject of intense study since the 70-ies, when classical algorithms for scheduling tasks in an on-line fashion [22] and for handling paging in virtual storage systems [11] have been first devised. In the 80-ies formal concepts for analyzing and measuring the quality of on-line algorithms have been introduced [40] and the notion of competitive analysis has been defined as the ratio between the value of the solution that is obtained by an on-line algorithm and the value of the best solution that can be achieved by an optimum off-line algoritm that has full knowledge of the problem instance. Since then a very broad variety of online problems have been addressed in the literature [14, 19]: memory allocation and paging, bin packing, load balancing in multiprocessor systems, updating and searching a data structure (e.g. a list), scheduling, financial investment, etc.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third International Conference on Theory and Applications of Models of Computation, TAMC 2006, held in Beijing, China, in May 2006. The 75 revised full papers presented together with 7 plenary talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 319 submissions. All major areas in computer science, mathematics (especially logic) and the physical sciences particularly with regard to computation and computability theory are addressed.

Visual Data Mining: Theory, Techniques and Tools for Visual Analytics (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
Visual Data Mining: Theory, Techniques and Tools for Visual Analytics (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
The importance of visual data mining, as a strong sub-discipline of data mining, had already been recognized in the beginning of the decade. In 2005 a panel of renowned individuals met to address the shortcomings and drawbacks of the current state of visual information processing. The need for a systematic and methodological development of visual...

Building a TypePad Blog People Want to Read

Today, it seems everyone—from multinational corporations to your kid’s second-grade teacher—has a blog. They all have one, in part, because they have information they want to share with others—from customers and clients to neighbors and parents. But to actually build a good blog—to create a blog people want to...


Sport (The Art of Living)
Sport (The Art of Living)

Whether it's conkers in the schoolyard, kicking a football in the park, or playing tennis on Wimbledon Centre Court, sport impacts all of our lives. But what is sport and why do we do it? Colin McGinn, renowned philosopher (and kiteboarder), reflects on our love of sport and explores the value it has for us and the part it plays in a life...

Handbook on Quality and Standardisation in E-Learning
Handbook on Quality and Standardisation in E-Learning
The motivation to publish the Handbook for Quality and Standardisation in ELearning has its origin in numerous discussions during the last few years with colleagues from all over the world, in research projects, from universities or on policy level. They gave us the chance to learn that quality for e-learning on the one hand is of utmost importance...
