On the logos: a naïve view on ordinary reasoning and fuzzy logic
There are many books that you read to get answers to questions and doubts, and there are few books that leave you with more questions and doubts than before reading them. Yet, you can still be satisfied with such books because they give you the idea of the exciting dynamism of science, which... more
There is no doubt that the large computer systems can effectively handle information as data. But the development of even the most sophisticated paper pushing. If, as I believe, the nature of... more

Maximizing polynomials subject to assignment constraints: ACM Transactions on Algorithms

This paper considers “the q-adic assignment problem.” Fix a number q (originally q=2), and suppose we are given, for some number n, a 2q-dimensional array of costs cu,v where u and v are q-tuples of indices... more

Mathematical grammar of biology

It is common knowledge that the code of life is represented by strings consisting of four letters (A, T, C, and G), and the names of Watson and Crick are often referenced to represent the scientific efforts that made understanding the genetic code possible. Leaving aside the... more

Models of computation

Any formal definition of a language has to clearly specify its syntax (a grammatical specification that in some way fixes the structure of well-formed statements) and semantics (the manner in which meaning is assigned to well-formed statements). To these one may also... more

Deception in the digital age

The book’s ten chapters provide background on deception techniques and then examples linked to cyber deception. The introduction, “Cyberanthropology of Deception,” shows that deception is an old tactic, with evidence dating back to 2500 BCE. Examples... more
