  Mechanistic explanations in physics and beyond
Falkenburg B., Schiemann G.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 220 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030107-06-2)

This book provides an overview of the mechanistic approach to science from historical, philosophical, computational, and other viewpoints. This approach arises from the fact that, in real life, most objects remain the same (at least locally)...

  Quantum computing: survey and analysis
Savchuk M., Fesenko A.  Cybernetics and Systems Analysis 55(1): 10-21, 2019. Type: Article

With quantum supremacy allegedly having been achieved by Google, the need for short, correct, and accessible introductions into the quantum computing (QC) realm certainly is going to rise. Regrettably, this paper is an egregious failure in that re...

   Toward automatic verification of quantum programs
Ying M.  Formal Aspects of Computing 31(1): 3-25, 2019. Type: Article

Even if a world of quantum computing for everyone is years (if not decades) away, research on designing proper ways to program such systems has been ongoing for quite some time. History shows that programming is hard; making correct programs, that...

  Quantum computing for everyone
Bernhardt C.,  The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2019. 216 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262039-25-3)

Ever wonder if there is a way to understand quantum computing using only a modest extension of high school mathematics (no complex numbers, no eigenvectors, no Fourier transform)? Look no further. Professor Chris Bernhardt introduces the main topi...

  An effective and versatile distance measure for spatiotemporal trajectories
Naderivesal S., Kulik L., Bailey J.  Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery 33(3): 577-606, 2019. Type: Article

With the increasing accumulation of spatial temporal path data, such as in the truck and cab datasets considered here, the need for effective path comparison algorithms is of current importance. This paper develops a measure employing an interval ...

  The theory of quantum information
Watrous J.,  Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2018. 598 pp. Type: Book (978-1-107180-56-7)

Information theory has its modern origins in the 1948 work [1] of Claude Shannon, who gave results that addressed two key problems: the extent to which information can be compressed without loss, and the rate at which information can be transmitte...

  Algorithm 995: an efficient parallel anisotropic Delaunay mesh generator for two-dimensional finite element analysis
Pardue J., Chernikov A.  ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software 45(3): 1-30, 2019. Type: Article

Finite element analysis (FEA) depends on meshes that approximate the artifact to be analyzed. Starting with an initial mesh, an FEA development pipeline produces more and more refined meshes in an iterative process until the solution of the partia...

  Essential engineering thermodynamics: a student’s guide
Zhang Y.,  Morgan&Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2018. 79 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681734-23-1)

The relationship between computer science and physics is many-faceted, from the quantum mechanics principles that make semiconductors hum, to the concept of entropy that is the foundation of information theory. Entropy is a key concept of thermody...

  Universal quantum computing: supervening decoherence -- surmounting uncertainty
Amoroso R.,  World Scientific Publishing Co, Inc., Hackensack, NJ, 2017. 632 pp. Type: Book

Quantum computing is one of the hottest research fields right now, although the theory behind it had its start in the early 1980s, when Richard Feynman asked in a lecture why simulating quantum effects with classical (non-quantum) computers is so ...

  Data analysis techniques for physical scientists
Pruneau C.,  Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2017. 716 pp. Type: Book (978-1-108416-78-8)

To quote Shakespeare, “What’s in a name?” For Pruneau’s book Data analysis techniques for physical scientists, quite a bit it turns out. This great magnum opus (more than 700 pages) should be required reading for its...
