A compilation of research works on topics such as concept theory, positive relational algebra and k-relations, structured, visual and ontological models of knowledge representation, and detailed descriptions of applications to various domains.
by Stephen Wolfram - Wolfram Media , 2002
Starting from a collection of simple computer experiments -- illustrated in the book by striking computer graphics -- Wolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe.
by Susan Rodger - Duke University , 1998
These lecture notes present an introduction to theoretical computer science including studies of abstract machines, the language hierarchy from regular languages to recursively enumerable languages, noncomputability and complexity theory.
by Frank van Harmelen, Vladimir Lifschitz, Bruce Porter - Elsevier Science , 2008
Knowledge Representation is concerned with encoding knowledge on computers to enable systems to reason automatically. The Handbook of Knowledge Representation is an up-to-date review of twenty-five key topics in knowledge representation.
by Hans-Peter Bischof , 1998
This text is an introduction to the formal study of computation. The course will provide students with a broad perspective of computer science and will acquaint them with various formal systems on which modern computer science is based.
by F. D. Lewis - University of Kentucky , 2001
This text is a broad introduction to the field, presented from a computer science viewpoint for computer scientists. This was designed to be used in a one-semester course for senior computer science majors or first year masters students.
- CSEP , 1996
An electronic book for teaching Computational Science and Engineering. The intended audience are students in science and engineering at the advanced undergraduate level and higher. Tutorials for networking and visualization software are included.
by Brian Harvey - The MIT Press , 1997
