Parsing with Principles and Classes of Information presents a parser based on current principle-based linguistic theories for English. It argues that differences in the kind of information being computed, whether lexical, structural or syntactic, play a crucial role in the mapping from grammatical theory to parsing algorithms. The direct encoding of homogeneous classes of information has computational and cognitive advantages, which are discussed in detail. Phrase structure is built by using a fast algorithm and compact reference tables. A quantified comparison of different compilation methods shows that lexical and structural information are most compactly represented by separate tables. Th...
Collects the Latest Research Involving the Application of Process Algebra to Computing Exploring state-of-the-art applications, Process Algebra for Parallel and Distributed Processing shows how one formal method of reasoning—process algebra—has become a powerful tool for solving design and implementation challenges of concurrent systems. Parallel Programming Divided into three parts, the book begins by parallelizing an algorithm for the Cell Broadband Engine processor of IBM, Sony, and Toshiba. It also develops a runtime environment that can be ported to different parallel platforms and describes the formal model of action systems. Distributed Systems The next part presents a process alg...
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the Third International Symposium on Applications of Graph Transformations, AGTIVE 2007, held in Kassel, Germany, in October 2007. The 30 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited papers were carefully selected from numerous submissions during two rounds of reviewing and improvement. The papers are organized in topical sections on graph transformation applications, meta-modeling and domain-specific language, new graph transformation approaches, program transformation applications, dynamic system modeling, model driven software development applications, queries, views, and model transformations, as well as new pattern matching and rewriting concepts. The volume moreover contains 4 papers resulting from the adjacent graph transformation tool contest and concludes with 9 papers summarizing the state of the art of today's available graph transformation environments.
The current IT environment deals with novel, complex approaches such as information privacy, trust, digital forensics, management, and human aspects. This volume includes papers offering research contributions that focus both on access control in complex environments as well as other aspects of computer security and privacy.
The three-volume set LNCS 6361, 6362 and 6363 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention, MICCAI 2010, held in Beijing, China, in September 2010. Based on rigorous peer reviews, the program committee carefully selected 251 revised papers from 786 submissions for presentation in three volumes. The third volume includes 83 papers organized in topical sections on segmentation and modeling, robotics, motion modeling and computer-assisted interventions, image reconstruction, enhancement and representation, and computer-aided diagnosis.

"Geometric Structure of High-Dimensional Data and Dimensionality Reduction" adopts data geometry as a framework to address various methods of dimensionality reduction. In addition to the introduction to well-known linear methods, the book moreover stresses the recently developed nonlinear methods and introduces the applications of dimensionality reduction in many areas, such as face recognition, image segmentation, data classification, data visualization, and hyperspectral imagery data analysis. Numerous tables and graphs are included to illustrate the ideas, effects, and shortcomings of the methods. MATLAB code of all dimensionality reduction algorithms is provided to aid the readers with the implementations on computers. The book will be useful for mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, and data analysts. It is also a valuable handbook for other practitioners who have a basic background in mathematics, statistics and/or computer algorithms, like internet search engine designers, physicists, geologists, electronic engineers, and economists. Jianzhong Wang is a Professor of Mathematics at Sam Houston State University, U.S.A.
The present manuscript is an improved edition of a text that first appeared under the same title in Bonner Mathematische Schriften, no.26, and originated from a series of lectures given by the author in 1965/66 in Wolfgang Krull's seminar in Bonn. Its main goal is to provide the reader, acquainted with the basics of algebraic number theory, a quick and immediate access to class field theory. This script consists of three parts, the first of which discusses the cohomology of finite groups. The second part discusses local class field theory, and the third part concerns the class field theory of finite algebraic number fields.
This practical book and accompanying software enables you to quickly and easily work out challenging microwave engineering and high-frequency electromagnetic problems using the finite element method (FEM) Using clear, concise text and dozens of real-world application examples, the book provides a detailed description of FEM implementation, while the software provides the code and tools needed to solve the three major types of EM problems: guided propagation, scattering, and radiation.
