  A finite element method for high-contrast interface problems with error estimates independent of contrast
Guzmán J., Sánchez M., Sarkis M.  Journal of Scientific Computing 73(1): 330-365, 2017. Type: Article

Guzmán et al. explain their method with a polygonal, convex, tubular domain, and an immersed interface definable with a function with the first derivative, which does not change in time. The jumps across a discontinuity are defined as expressions ...

  Finite difference/finite element methods for distributed-order time fractional diffusion equations
Bu W., Xiao A., Zeng W.  Journal of Scientific Computing 72(1): 422-441, 2017. Type: Article

Bu et al. discretize the fractional diffusion equation in time using a modified compound trapezoid formula, and the Caputo fractional derivative in space is done using the L1 method, thus obtaining an unconditionally stable semi-discrete variation...

   History of “Gaussian” elimination
Joseph Grcar. YouTube, 01:24:37, published on Feb 6, 2015, ICMEStudio, Type: Video

The first interesting fact made clear in this talk is that Gaussian elimination, as we know it today, has its origins so far back in time that certainly in the beginning it was neither “Gaussian” nor “elimination.” Some of ...

  Machine learning for first-order theorem proving
Bridge J., Holden S., Paulson L.  Journal of Automated Reasoning 53(2): 141-172, 2014. Type: Article, Reviews: (2 of 2)

Bridge and colleagues have developed a methodology of machine learning for theorem proving that uses real-valued features of the problem at hand and determines in a rigorous manner and with fewer preconceptions the possible connections between fea...

   Sparse modeling: theory, algorithms, and applications
Rish I., Grabarnik G.,  CRC Press, Inc., Boca Raton, FL, 2014. 253 pp. Type: Book (978-1-439828-69-4)

The authors themselves admit in several instances that the literature about sparse modeling is so vast that a single book cannot possibly encompass its entirety. However, this book is written in a way of a reasonably ample review, with enough lite...

  Climate modeling for scientists and engineers
Drake J.,  SIAM, Philadelphia, PA, 2014. 173 pp. Type: Book (978-1-611973-53-2)

Modeling in general, and for climate in particular, involves an understanding of the physical phenomena at several stages, which are nicely and concisely developed in this work: conceptual, mathematical, numerical, and computational....

   Virtually human: the promise--and the peril--of digital immortality
Rothblatt M.,  St. Martin’s Press, Inc., New York, NY, 2014. 368 pp. Type: Book (978-1-250046-63-5)

An enrapturing work written pretty much in the style of a novel, this book offers a broad, in-depth look at several ethical and psychological aspects of the possibility of transferring our memories and styles of thinking into a computer-based syst...

   Introduction to humanoid robotics
Kajita S., Hirukawa H., Harada K., Yokoi K.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2014. 222 pp. Type: Book (978-3-642545-35-1)

Humanoid robotics, as described by the authors, is aimed at developing robots that may:
(1) Perform actions within human environments as they are (without further changes to accommodate the mechanical capacities of the robot);

  Robotics and artificial intelligence: a perspective on deliberation functions
Ingrand F., Ghallab M.  AI Communications 27(1): 63-80, 2014. Type: Article

In the authors’ words, in this short review paper, deliberation functions concern “purposeful, chosen or planned actions [understood both algorithmically and through actuators], carried out in order to achieve some objectives.” T...

   Uncertainty in risk assessment: the representation and treatment of uncertainties by probabilistic and non-probabilistic methods
Aven T., Zio E., Baraldi P., Flage R.,  Wiley Publishing, Chichester, UK, 2014. 200 pp. Type: Book (978-1-118489-58-1)

Based on previous work by the authors as well as work by some others, this book summarizes a vast amount of literature concerning the modeling of uncertainty and risk assessment. A central idea is to analyze why the usage of probabilities (frequen...
