Mathematical analysis and the mathematics of computation
Römisch W., Zeugmann T.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 703 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319427-53-9), Reviews: (1 of 2)

Even though there are many deep connections between mathematical analysis and the mathematics of computation, these two fields are usually taught completely separately from each other. This traditional approach has the disadvantage that the concep...

Introduction to coding theory (2nd ed.)
Bierbrauer J.,  Chapman & Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, FL, 2016. 538 pp. Type: Book (978-1-482299-80-9)

For the digital age, data encoding and decoding represents a primary request, without which computer science and information systems would not exist. As a main part of discrete mathematics and computer algebra, the theory of error-correcting codes...

Melia: a MapReduce framework on OpenCL-based FPGAs
Wang Z., Zhang S., He B., Zhang W.  IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems 27(12): 3547-3560, 2016. Type: Article

Many web applications such as search engines and recommendation systems require operations on large datasets. The nature of computation in such applications is complex, which necessitates distributed operations on clusters of general-purpose proce...

Assessing the epistemological relevance of Dung-style argumentation theories
Betz G.  Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence 78(3-4): 303-321, 2016. Type: Article

Phan Minh Dung described a model for argumentation in Artificial Intelligence in 1995 [1]. The model presents an argument framework as a collection of arguments together with an attack-relation defined on the set. A single argument

GPU-accelerated Hungarian algorithms for the linear assignment problem
Date K., Nagi R.  Parallel Computing 57(C): 52-72, 2016. Type: Article

The paper is devoted to a fundamental problem in the area of combinatorial optimization--the assignment problem. The goal is to find a maximum (or minimum) weight matching in a weighted bipartite graph. The authors focus on the Hungarian algo...

Bayesian multi-tensor factorization
Khan S., Leppäaho E., Kaski S.  Machine Learning 105(2): 233-253, 2016. Type: Article

Data mining is increasingly facing the problem of extracting new knowledge from experimental data collected from complex phenomena. To extract hidden information, such datasets can be decomposed into the components that underlie them. Because data...

Designing software architectures: a practical approach
Cervantes H., Kazman R.,  Addison-Wesley Professional, Boston, MA, 2016. 320 pp. Type: Book (978-0-134390-78-9)

It is often forgotten that common sense is the least common of the senses. Sensible design advice, guidelines, and heuristics are often no more than just that: plain old common sense. However, rational reminders of our own fallibility and cognitiv...
