Title:Kripkes Worlds [electronic resource] : An Introduction to Modal Logics via Tableaux
Author(s): Olivier Gasquet
Andreas Herzig
Bilal Said
Franois Schwarzentruber
Date:2014
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Possible worlds models were introduced by Saul Kripke in the early 1960s. Basically, a possible worlds model is nothing but a graph with labelled nodes and labelled edges. Such graphs provide semantics for various modal logics(alethic, temporal, epis temic and doxastic, dynamic, deontic, description logics) and also turned out useful for other nonclassical logics (intuitionistic, conditional, several paraconsistent and relevant logics). All these logics havebeen studied intensively in philosophical an d mathematical logic and in computer science, and have been applied increasingly in domains such as program semantics, artificial intelligence, and more recently in the semantic web.Additionally, all these logics were also studied proof theoretically. The proof systems for modal logics come in various styles: Hilbert style, natural deduction, sequents, and resolution. However, it is fair to say that the mostuniform and most successful such systems are tableaux systems. Given a logic and a formula, they al low one to check whether there is a model in that logic. This basically amounts to trying to build a model for the formula by building atree. This book follows a more general approach by trying to build a graph, the advantage being that a graph is closer to a Kripke model than a tree. It provides a step-by-step introduction to possible worlds semantics (and by that tomodal and other nonclassical logics) via the tableaux method. It is accompanied by a piece of software called LoTREC (www.irit.fr/Lotrec). L oTREC allows to check whether a given formula is true at a given world of a given model and tocheck whether a given formula is satisfiable in a given logic. The latter can be done immediately if the tableau system for that logic has already been implement ed in LoTREC. If this is not yet the case LoTREC offers the possibility toimplement a tableau system in a relatively easy way via a simple, graph-based, interactive language. >dy>

Title:Control of Nonholonomic Systems: from Sub-Riemannian Geometry to Motion Planning [electronic resource]
Author(s): Frdric Jean
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note: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. Inparticular 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 these notes is to present these notions of approximation and theirapplication to the motion planning problem f or nonholonomic systems
Contents:1Geometry of nonholonomic systems

Title:The Beginning and the End [electronic resource] : The Meaning of Life in a Cosmological Perspective
Author(s): Clment Vidal
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions: Does our universe have a beginning and an end, or is it cyclic? Are we alone in the universe? What is the role of intelligent life, ifany, in cosmic evolu tion? Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe'sdeepest mysteries. Vidal shows how the f ine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations. He also explores whether natural or artificial selection could hold on a cosmic scale. In perhaps his boldest hypothesis, heargues that signs of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are already present in our astrophysical data. His conclusions invite us to see the meaning of life, evolution, and intelligence from a novel cosmological framework thatshould stir debate for years to come

Title:The Hunter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Giancarlo Genta
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The 24th century: humankind has become a spacefaring civilization, colonizing the solar system and beyond. While no alien forms of life have yet been encountered in this expansion into space, colonists suddenly encounter machinesof alien origin - hug e robots able to reproduce themselves. Called replicators by the colonists, they seem to have but a single goal: to destroy all organic life they come in contact with. Since the colonial governments have no meansto fight this menace directly, they instead promise huge rewards to whoever destroys a replicator. As a result, the frontier attracts a new kind of adventurers, the Hunters, who work to find and destroy the replicators. Mike Edwards, avvskilled young maintenance technician and robotics expert at a faraway outpost, will not only become one of them - but be the very first one to unlock the secret behind the replicators origin and mission. The scientific andtechnical aspects underlying the plot - in particular space travel, robotics and self-replica ting spacecraft - are introduced and discussed by the author in an extensive non-technical appendix. An expert in space flight technology,with a special interest in space robotics and advanced space propulsion, Giancarlo Genta is a professor in the Depart ment of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the Politecnico di Torino, in Turin, Italy. He is also director ofthe Italian SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) study center and is a full member of the International Academy of Astronautics. H e has written more than 300 scientific papers and 11 scientific books.Among his popularscience books are Space: The Final Frontier?, published by Cambridge University Press in 2002, and Lonely Minds in the Universe - The Search for Extraterrestrial Intell igence, published by Springer-Copernicus in June 2007. The Hunter,already published in Italian and Ukrainian, is his first novel

A product of the intellectual elite, but always nourished by the many fruits of itsapplications, science appears tod ay to be a perfect system, whose laws and discoveries guide all human activities. Yet the foundations of its authority remain an open question, entailing disquieting aspects that are also to beidentified in modern science. Furthermore it is seen to be exe rting an increasing power over mankind. Readers are invited to follow an itinerary through the history of science, a voyage which, in the end, enables them to catch aglimpse of two divergent futures: One in which science accelerates the downfall of Homo s apiens, and another in which it helps our species to engage in a new and positive adventure, whose outcome nobody can know

Title:Adaptive Logics for Defeasible Reasoning [electronic resource] : Applications in Argumentation, Normative Reasoning and Default Reasoning
Author(s): Christian Straer
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents adaptive logics as an intuitive and powerful framework for modeling defeasible reasoning. It examines various contexts in which defeasible reasoning is useful and offers a compact introduction into adaptivelogics. The author first familiarizes readers with defeasible reasoning, the adaptive logics framework, combinations of adaptive logics, and a range of useful meta-theoretic properties. He then offers a systematic study of adaptivelogics based on various applications. The book pr esents formal models for defeasible reasoning stemming from different contexts, such as default reasoning, argumentation, and normative reasoning. It highlights various meta-theoreticadvantages of adaptive logics over other logics or logical frameworks th at model defeasible reasoning. In this way the book substantiates the status of adaptive logics as a generic formal framework for defeasible reasoning

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this book the author presents a new approach to the study of weakly structurable dynamic systems. It differs from other approaches by considering time asa sourceof fuzzy uncertainty in dynamic systems. It begins with athorough introduction, where the general research domain, the problems, and ways of their solutions are discussed. The book then progresses systematically by first covering the theoretical aspects before tackling the applications. Inthe application section, a software library is desc ribed, which contains discrete EFDS identification methods elaborated during fundamental research of the book. Extremal Fuzzy Dynamic Systems will be of interest to theoreticiansinterested in modeling fuzzy processes, to researchers who use fuzzy statisti cs, as well as practitioners from different disciplines whose research interests include abnormal, extreme and monotone processes in nature and society.Graduate students could also find this book useful

Note:The goal of this book is to present a variety of methods used in multidimensional data visualization. The emphasis is placed on new research results and trends in this field, including optimization, artificial neural networks,combinations of algorith ms, parallel computing, different proximity measures, nonlinear manifold learning, and more. Many of the applications presented allow us to discover the obvious advantages of visual data miningit is mucheasier for a decision maker to detect or extract use ful information from graphical representation of data than from raw numbers. The fundamental idea of visualization is to provide data in some visual form that lets humans understandthem, gain insight into the data, draw conclusions, and directly influence the process of decision making. Visual data mining is a field where human participation is integrated in the data analysis process it covers data visualizationand graphical presentation of information. Multidimensional Data Visualization is intended for scientists and researchers in any field of study where complex and multidimensional data must be visually represented. It may also serve asa useful research supplement for PhD students in operations research, computer science, various fields of engineerin g, as well as natural and social sciences

Note:The first part of this title contained all statistical tests that are relevant for starters on SPSS, and included standard parametric and non-parametric tests for continuous and binary variables, regression methods, trend tests,and reliability and va lidity assessments of diagnostic tests. The current part 2 of this title reviews multistep methods, multivariate models, assessments of missing data, performance of diagnostic tests, meta-regression, Poissonregression, confounding and interaction, and sur vival analyses using log tests and segmented time-dependent Cox regression. Methods for assessing non linear models, data seasonality, distribution free methods, including Monte Carlomethods and artificial intelligence, and robust tests are also covered. Each method of testing is explained using a data example from clinical practice,including every step in SPSS, and a text with interpretations of the results andhints convenient for data reporting. In order to facilitate the use of this cookbook the data f iles of the examples is made available by the editor through extras.springer.com. Both part 1 and 2 of this title contain a minima amount oftext and maximal technical details, but we believe that this property will not refrain students from mastering the SPSS software systematics, and that, instead, it will be a help to that aim. Yet, we recommend that it will usedtogether with the textbook Statistics Applied to Clinical Trials (5th edition, Springer, Dordrecht 2012) and the e-books Statistics on a Pocket Calculator Part 1 and 2 (Springer, Dordrecht, 2011 and 2012) from the same authors

Note:Generally, spontaneous pattern formation phenomena are random and repetitive, whereas elaborate devices are the deterministic product of human design. Yet, biological organisms and collective insect constructions are exceptionalexamples of complex sy stems that are both self-organized and architectural. This book is the first initiative of its kind toward establishing a new field of research, Morphogenetic Engineering, to explore the modeling andimplementation of self-architecturing systems. Particul ar emphasis is placed on the programmability and computational abilities of self-organization, properties that are often underappreciated in complex systems sciencewhile,conversely, the benefits of self-organization are often underappreciated in engineeri ng methodologies. Altogether, the aim of this work is to provide a framework for and examples of a larger class of self-architecturingsystems, while addressing fundamental questions such as > How do biological organisms carry out morphogenetic tasks so reliably? > Can we extrapolate their self-formation capabilities to engineered systems? > Can physical systems beendowed with information (or informational systems be embedded in physics) so as to create autonomous morphologies and functions? > What are t he core principles and best practices for the design and engineering of such morphogeneticsystems? The intended audience consists of researchers and graduate students who are working on, starting to work on, or interested in programmable self-organizing s ystems in a wide range of scientific fields, including computerscience, robotics, bioengineering, control engineering, physics, theoretical biology, mathematics, and many others

Note:Singularity Hypotheses: A Scientific and Philosophical Assessment offers authoritative, jargon-free essays and critical commentaries on accelerating technological progress and the notion of technological singularity. It focuses onconjectures about th e intelligence explosion, transhumanism, and whole brain emulation. Recent years have seen a plethora of forecasts about the profound, disruptive impact that is likely to result from further progress in these areas.Many commentators however doubt the scie ntific rigor of these forecasts, rejecting them as speculative and unfounded. We therefore invited prominent computer scientists, physicists, philosophers, biologists, economists and otherthinkers to assess the singularity hypotheses. Their contributions go beyond speculation, providing deep insights into the main issues and a balanced picture of the debate

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book offers a new approach to information theory that is more general then the classical approach by Shannon. The classical definition of information is given for an alphabet of symbols or for a set of mutually exclusivepropositions (a partition of the probability space ) with corresponding probabilities adding up to 1. The new definition is given for an arbitrary cover of , i.e. for a set of possibly overlapping propositions. The generalizedinformation concept is called novelty and it is accompa nied by two new concepts derived from it, designated as information and surprise, which describe opposite versions of novelty, information being related more to classicalinformation theory and surprise being related more to the classical concept of statis tical significance. In the discussion of these three concepts and their interrelations several properties or classes of covers are defined, which turnout to be lattices. The book also presents applications of these new concepts, mostly in statistics and i n neuroscience

Title:The Universe as Automaton [electronic resource] From Simplicity and Symmetry to Complexity

Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This booklet is an essay at the interface of philosophy and complexity research, trying to inspire the reader with new ideas and new conceptual developments of cellular automata. Going beyond the numerical experiments of StevenWolfram, it is argued t hat cellular automata must be considered complex dynamical systems in their own right, requiring appropriate analytical models in order to find precise answers and predictions in the universe of cellularautomata. Indeed, eventually we have to ask whether cellular automata can be considered models of the real world and, conversely, whether there are limits to our modern approach of attributing the world, and the universe for thatmatter, essentially a digital reality

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Autonomous robots may become our closest companions in the near future. While the technology for physically building such machines is already available today, a problem lies in the generation of the behavior for such complexmachines. Nature proposes a solution: young children and higher animals learn to master their complex brain-body systems by playing. Can this be an option for robots? How can a machine be playful? The book provides answers bydeveloping a general principle---homeokinesis, the dynam ical symbiosis between brain, body, and environment---that is shown to drive robots to self- determined, individual development in a playful and obviously embodiment- related way:a dog-like robot starts playing with a barrier, eventually jumping or climbi ng over it a snakebot develops coiling and jumping modes humanoids develop climbing behaviors when fallen into a pit, or engage in wrestling-like scenarioswhen encountering an opponent. The book also develops guided self-organization, a new method that he lps to make the playful machines fit for fulfilling tasks in the real world. The book provides two levels of presentation. Students andscientific researchers interested in the field of robotics, self-organization and dynamical systems theory may be satisf ied by the in-depth mathematical analysis of the principle, the bootstrapping scenarios, and the emergingbehaviors. But the book additionally comes with a robotics simulator inviting also the non- scientific reader to simply enjoy the fabulous world of pl ayful machines by performing the numerous experiments

Note:Financial Decision Making Using Computational Intelligence covers all the recent developments in complex financial decision making through computational intelligence approaches. Computational intelligence has evolved rapidly inrecent years and it is now one of the most active fields in operations research and computer science. The increasing complexity of financial problems and the enormous volume of financial data often make it difficult to applytraditional modeling and algorithmic procedures. In th is context, the field of computational intelligence provides a wide range of useful techniques, including new modeling tools for decision making under risk and uncertainty, datamining techniques for analyzing complex data bases, and powerful algorithms fo r complex optimization problems. This book presents the recent advances made in financial decision making using computational intelligence, covering bothnew methodological developments as well as new emerging application areas. This work covers a wide ra nge of topics related to financial decision making, financial modeling, risk management, and financial engineering, includingalgorithmic trading, financial time-series analysis, asset pricing, portfolio management, auction markets, and insurance services. Practitioners in the financial industry as well as operations researchers, management scientists, anddata analysts will find this publication highly useful

Note:Learning spaces offer a rigorous mathematical foundation for various practical systems of knowledge assessment. An example is offered by the ALEKS system (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces), a software for the assessmentof mathematical know ledge. From a mathematical standpoint, learning spaces as well as knowledge spaces (which made the title of the first edition) generalize partially ordered sets. They are investigated both from a combinatorial and astochastic viewpoint. The results are ap plied to real and simulated data. The book gives a systematic presentation of research and extends the results to new situations. It is of interest to mathematically oriented readers ineducation, computer science and combinatorics at research and graduate levels.

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume provides an extensive treatment of Natural Deduction and related types of proof systems, with a focus on the practical aspects of proof methods. The book has two main aims: Its first aim is to provide a systematic andhistorical survey of the variety of Natural Deduction systems in Classical and Modal Logics. The second aim is to present some systems of hybrid character, mixing Natural Deduction with other kinds of proof methods (including Sequentsystems, Tableaux, Resolution). Such system s tend to be more universal and effective, because of the possibility of mixing strategies of proof search from different areas. All necessary background material is provided, in particular, adetailed presentation of Modal Logics, including First-Order Mo dal and Hybrid Modal Logics. The deduction systems presented in the book may be of interest to working logicians, researchers on automated deduction and teachers of logic

Note:This book is devoted to complexity understanding and management, considered as the main source of efficiency and prosperity for the next decades. Divided into six chapters, the book begins with a presentation of basic concepts ascomplexity, emergence and closure. The second chapter looks to methods and introduces polystochastic models, the wave equation, possibilities and entropy. The third chapter focusing on physical and chemical systems analyzes flow-sheetsynthesis, cyclic operations of separation , drug delivery systems and entropy production. Biomimetic systems represent the main objective of the fourth chapter. Case studies refer to bio-inspired calculation methods, to the role ofartificial genetic codes, neural networks and neural codes for evo lutionary calculus and for evolvable circuits as biomimetic devices. The fifth chapter, taking its inspiration from systems sciences and cognitive sciences looks toengineering design, case base reasoning methods, failure analysis, and multi-agent manufact uring systems. Perspectives and integrative points of view are discussed in the sixth chapter with reference to the classification of sciences,cybernetics and its extensions, and to transdisciplinarity and categorification.

Title:On the Construction of Artificial Brains [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ulrich Ramacher
Christoph Malsburg
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a first generation of artificial brains, using vision as sample application. An object recognition system is built, using neurons and synapses as exclusive building elements. The system contains a featurepyramid with 8 orientations and 5 resolution levels for 1000 objects and networks for binding of features into objects. This vision system can recognize objects robustly in the presence of changes in illumination, deformation, distanceand pose (as long as object components remain v isible). The neuro-synaptic network owes its functional power to the introduction of rapidly modifiable dynamic synapses. These give a network greater pattern recognition capabilities thanare achievable with fixed connections. The spatio-temporal correlat ion structure of patterns is captured by a single synaptic differential equation in a universal way. The correlation can appear as synchronous neural firing, whichsignals the presence of a feature in a robust way, or binds features into objects. Although in this book we can present only a first generation artificial brain and believe many more generations will have to follow to reach the fullpower of the human brain, we nevertheless see a new era of computation on the horizon. There were times when comput ers, with their precision, reliability and blinding speed, were considered to be as superior to the wet matter of ourbrain as a jet plane is to a sparrow. These times seem to be over, given the fact that digital systems inspired by formal logic and contro lled algorithmically - today's computers - are hitting a complexity crisis. A paradigm change isin the air: from the externally organised to the self-organised computer, of which the results described in this book may give an inkling

Note:Algorithmic composition composing by means of formalizable methods has a century old tradition not only in occidental music history. This is the first book to provide a detailed overview of prominent procedures ofalgorithmic composition in a pragma tic way rather than by treating formalizable aspects in single works. In addition to an historic overview, each chapter presents a specific class of algorithm in a compositional context by providing ageneral introduction to its development and theoretical basis and describes different musical applications. Each chapter outlines the strengths, weaknesses and possible aesthetical implications resulting from the application of thetreated approaches. Topics covered are: markov models, generative grammars, tra nsition networks, chaos and self-similarity, genetic algorithms, cellular automata, neural networks and artificial intelligence are covered. Thecomprehensive bibliography makes this work ideal for the musician and the researcher alike
