An Introduction to Information Theory
Behind the familiar surfaces of the telephone, radio, and television lies a sophisticated and intriguing body of knowledge known as information theory. This is the theory that has permeated the rapid development of all sorts of communication, from color television to the clear transmission of photographs from the vicinity of Jupiter. Even more revolutionary progress is expected in the future.To$2.99

A Primer for Scientists and Engineers
Springer Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics and Technology
Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers is a book designed with students in mind. It attempts to take a concise, simple, and no-frills approach to differential equations. The approach used in this text is to give students extensive experience in main solution techniques with a lighter emphasis on the physical interpretation of the results. With a more manageable page count than$16.99
Computers, Pattern, Chaos and Beauty
Combining fractal theory with computer art, this book introduces a creative use of computers. It describes graphic methods for detecting patterns in complicated data and illustrates simple techniques for visualizing chaotic behavior. "Beautiful." — Martin Gardner, Scientific American. Over 275 illustrations, 29 in color.$14.95
Mechanics, Control and Other Applications
The first truly up-to-date treatment of the calculus of variations, this text is also the first to offer a simple introduction to such key concepts as optimal control and linear-quadratic control design. Its broad perspective features numerous exercises, hints, outlines, and comments, plus several appendixes, including a practical discussion of MATLAB. 2005 edition.$16.95
The Five Levels of Mathematical Reality
This reader-friendly volume groups the patterns of mathematics into five archetypes: numbers, space, logic, infinity, and information. Rudy Rucker presents an accessible introduction to each of these important areas, reflecting intelligence gathered from the frontiers of mathematical thought. More than 100 drawings illuminate explorations of digital versus analog processes, logic as a computing$22.99
An Introduction to Information Theory
Graduate-level study for engineering students presents elements of modern probability theory, elements of information theory with emphasis on its basic roots in probability theory and elements of coding theory. Emphasis is on such basic concepts as sets, sample space, random variables, information measure, and capacity. Many reference tables and extensive bibliography. 1961 edition.$30.59
Random Processes on Graphs and Lattices
Institute of Mathematical Statistics Textbooks (Book #1)
This introduction to some of the principal models in the theory of disordered systems leads the reader through the basics, to the very edge of contemporary research, with the minimum of technical fuss. Topics covered include random walk, percolation, self-avoiding walk, interacting particle systems, uniform spanning tree, random graphs, as well as the Ising, Potts, and random-cluster models for$49.49
Control of Nonholonomic Systems: from Sub-Riemannian Geometry to Motion Planning
Nonholonomic systems are control systems which depend linearly on the control. Their underlying geometry is the sub-Riemannian geometry, which plays for these systems the same role as Euclidean geometry does for linear systems. In particular the usual notions of approximations at the first order, that are essential for control purposes, have to be defined in terms of this geometry. The aim of
