The authors show that there are underlying mathematical reasons for why games and puzzles are challenging (and perhaps why they are so much fun). They also show that games and puzzles can serve as powerful models of computation—quite different from the usual models of automata and circuits—offering

The Presidential Election Game may change the way you think about presidential elections and, for that matter, American politics in general. It is not filled with statistics about the voting behavior of citizens, nor does it give detailed histories of past campaigns. Rather, it is an analytic

Combinatorial games are games of pure strategy involving two players, with perfect information and no element of chance. Starting from the very basics of gameplay and strategy, the authors cover a wide range of topics, from game algebra to special classes of games. Classic techniques are introduced

A comprehensive study of the connection game genre, Connection Games provides a survey of known connection games while exploring common themes and strategies. This book aims to impose some structure on this increasingly large family of games, and to define exactly what constitutes a connection game

The mathematical underpinnings of games, whether they are strategic or games of chance, have been known for centuries, but are usually only understood by players and aficionados who have a background in mathematics. The author has succeeded in making that knowledge accessible, entertaining, and

New Textbook! Taking an applied mathematics approach, An Introduction to Exotic Option Pricing illustrates how to use straightforward techniques to price a wide range of exotic options within the Black–Scholes framework. These methods can even be used as control variates in a Monte Carlo simulation of a stochastic volatility model.

Celebrate the life of Alan Turing with us by checking out this new book: The Universal Computer: The Road from Leibniz to Turing. Alan Turing Year 2012 marks the scientific contributions of this pioneer on the 100th anniversary of his birth on June 23, 1912. Turing’s influence on computer science, artificial intelligence, and developmental biology, along with his important work on code-breaking during the Second World War paved the way for a host of future discoveries and innovations.
