Title:Advances in Natural Deduction [electronic resource] : A Celebration of Dag Prawitz's Work
Author(s): Luiz Carlos Pereira
Edward Hermann Haeusler
Valeria de Paiva
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This collection of papers celebrating the contributions of Swedish logician Dag Prawitz to Proof Theory, has been assembled from those presented at the Natural Deduction conference organized in Rio de Janeiro to honour hisseminal research. Dag Prawit zs work forms the basis of intuitionistic type theory and his inversion principle constitutes the foundation of most modern accounts of proof-theoretic semantics in Logic, Linguistics andTheoretical Computer Science. The range of contributions includes ma terial on the extension of natural deduction with higher-order rules, as opposed to higher-order connectives, and a paper discussing the application of naturaldeduction rules to dealing with equality in predicate calculus. The volume continues with a key chapter summarizing work on the extension of the Curry-Howard isomorphism (itself a by-product of the work on natural deduction), viamethods of category theory that have been successfully applied to linear logic, as well as many other contributions from h ighly regarded authorities. With an illustrious group of contributors addressing a wealth of topics andapplications, this volume is a valuable addition to the libraries of academics in the multiple disciplines whose development has been given added scope by the methodologies supplied by natural deduction. The volume is representative ofthe rich and varied directions that Prawitz work has inspired in the area of natural deduction.

Title:Complexity Perspectives on Language, Communication and Society [electronic resource]

Albert Bastardas-Boada
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The language-communication-society triangle defies traditional scientific approaches. Rather, it is a phenomenon that calls for an integration of complex, transdisciplinary perspectives, if we are to make any progress inunderstanding how it works. Th e highly diverse agents in play are not merely cognitive and/or cultural, but also emotional and behavioural in their specificity. Indeed, the effort may require building a theoretical and methodologicalbody of knowledge that can effectively convey the ch aracteristic properties of phenomena in human terms. New complexity approaches allow us to rethink our limited and mechanistic images of human societies and create more appropriateemo-cognitive dynamic and holistic models. We have to enter into dialogue w ith the complexity views coming out of other more material sciences, but we also need to take steps in the linguistic and psycho-sociological fieldstowards creating perspectives and concepts better fitted to human characteristics. Our understanding of com plexity is different but not opposed to the one that is more commonly found in texts written by people working inphysics or computer science, for example. The goal of this book is to extend the knowledge of these other more human or socially oriented pe rspectives on complexity, taking account of the language and communication singularitiesof human agents in society.

Title:The Foundations of Statistics: A Simulation-based Approach [electronic resource]
Author(s): Shravan Vasishth
Michael Broe
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Statistics and hypothesis testing are routinely used in areas (such as linguistics) that are traditionally not mathematically intensive. In such fields, when faced with experimental data, many students and researchers tend torely on commercial packag es to carry out statistical data analysis, often without understanding the logic of the statistical tests they rely on. As a consequence, results are often misinterpreted, and users have difficulty in flexiblyapplying techniques relevant to their own rese arch they use whatever they happen to have learned. A simple solution is to teach the fundamental ideas of statistical hypothesis testing without using too much mathematics. This bookprovides a non-mathematical, simulation-based introduction to basic sta tistical concepts and encourages readers to try out the simulations themselves using the source code and data provided (the freely available programming language Ris used throughout). Since the code presented in the text almost always requires the use of previously introduced programming constructs, diligent students also acquire basic programming abilities in R. The book is intended foradvanced undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline, although the focus is on linguistics, psychology, and co gnitive science. It is designed for self-instruction, but it can also be used as a textbook for a first course onstatistics. Earlier versions of the book have been used in undergraduate and graduate courses in Europe and the US. Vasishth and Broe have wr itten an attractive introduction to the foundations of statistics. It is concise,surprisingly comprehensive, self-contained and yet quite accessible. Highly recommended. Harald Baayen, Professor of Linguistics, University of Alberta, Canada By using the text students not only learn to do the specificthings outlined in the book, they also gain a skill set that empowers them to explore new areas that lie beyond the books coverage.

Title:The Sky in Early Modern English Literature [electronic resource] A Study of Allusions to Celestial Events in Elizabethan and Jacobean Writing, 1572-1620
Author(s): David H Levy
Date:2011
Edition:1
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:When a dissertation gets completed, the normal rule is that it is never read. By anyone.David H. Levys dissertation - The Sky in Early Modern English Literature: A Study of Allusions to Celestial Events in Elizabethanand Jacobean Writing, 1572-1620 - is different. It opens a whole new interdisciplinary field, which involves the beautiful relationship between the night sky and the works of the early modern period of English Literature. Althoughthe sky enters into much of literature through the ages, t he period involving William Shakespeare and his colleagues is particularly rich. When Shakespeare was about 8 years old, his father probably took himoutside his Stratford home into their northward-facing back yard. There, father and son gazed upon the fi rst great new star visible in the past 500 years, shining forth as brightly as Venus, and even visible in daylight. This newstar, which we now know as a supernova, completely unhinged old ideas about the cosmos. Combined with a parade of bright comets, a second bright new star in 1604, and a series of eclipses, people began to look at the sky moreseriously. In this book, Levy explores how the sky of that period was reflected in its literature. Levys ultimate goal in this book is to inspire his readers to do the same thing as their ancestors did solong agolook at the sky and appreciate how those long-gone authors read the sky

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Computational Neuroscience is a burgeoning field of research where only the combined effort of neuroscientists, biologists, psychologists, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and other specialists, e.g.from linguistics and medi cine, seem to be able to expand the limits of our knowledge. The present volume is an introduction, largely from the physicists' perspective, to the subject matter with in-depth contributions by systemneuroscientists. A conceptual model for complex networ ks of neurons is introduced that incorporates many important features of the real brain, such as various types of neurons, various brain areas, inhibitory and excitatory couplingand the plasticity of the network. The computational implementation on superc omputers, which is introduced and discussed in detail in this book, will enable the readers to modify and adapt the algortihm for their own research.Worked-out examples of applications are presented for networks of Morris-Lecar neurons to model the cortic al connections of a cat's brain, supported with data from experimental studies. This book is particularly suited for graduatestudents and nonspecialists from related fields with a general science background, looking for a substantial but hands-on introduc tion to the subject matter
