Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: Modern Concepts and Practical Applications

Michael Affenzeller, Stefan Wagner, Stephan Winkler, Andreas Beham
April 16, 2018

Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: Modern Concepts and Practical Applications discusses algorithmic developments in the context of genetic algorithms (GAs) and genetic programming (GP). It applies the algorithms to significant combinatorial optimization problems and describes structure...

Bright Boys: The Making of Information Technology

Tom Green
April 16, 2018

Everything has a beginning. None was more profound—and quite as unexpected—than Information Technology. Here for the first time is the untold story of how our new age came to be and the bright boys who made it happen. What began on the bare floor of an old laundry building eventually grew to...

Mathematical Wizardry for a Gardner

Ed Pegg Jr, Alan Schoen, Tom Rodgers
April 16, 2018

In this volume, world-leading puzzle designers, puzzle collectors, mathematicians, and magicians continue the tradition of honoring Martin Gardner, who inspired them to enter mathematics, to enter magic, to bring magic into their mathematics, or to bring mathematics into their magic. This edited...
