Algorithms: Main Ideas and Applications by Vladimir Uspensky, A.L. Semenov

By Vladimir Uspensky, A.L. Semenov

Today the idea of the set of rules is generic not just to mathematicians. It varieties a conceptual base for info processing; the life of a corresponding set of rules makes automated details processing attainable. the idea of algorithms (together with mathematical common sense ) types the the­ oretical foundation for contemporary laptop technology (see [Sem Us 86]; this text is termed "Mathematical good judgment in machine technology and Computing perform" and in its identify mathematical good judgment is known in a vast feel together with the idea of algorithms). even if, now not all people realizes that the be aware "algorithm" encompasses a reworked toponym Khorezm. Algorithms have been named after an outstanding sci­ entist of medieval East, is al-Khwarizmi (where al-Khwarizmi skill "from Khorezm"). He lived among c. 783 and 850 B.C. and the 12 months 1983 was once selected to have fun his 1200th birthday. a brief biography of al-Khwarizmi compiled within the 10th century starts off as follows: "al-Khwarizmi. His identify is Muhammad ibn Musa, he's from Khoresm" (cited in accordance with [Bul Rozen Ah eighty three, p.8]).

Earthquake Hazard and Seismic Risk Reduction

In 1998 Armenia was once commemorating the 10th anniversary of the catastrophic Spitak earthquake. the second one foreign convention on "Earthquake danger and Seismic chance aid" subsidized by means of the govt. of the Republic of Armenia and United Nation's overseas Decade for normal catastrophe aid (UN/IDNDR) used to be held in commitment to that occasion among 14-21 September (later known as Yerevan Conference).

Redundancy in Robot Manipulators and Multi-Robot Systems

The craze within the evolution of robot structures is that the variety of levels of freedom raises. this is often seen either in robotic manipulator layout and within the shift of concentration from unmarried to multi-robot platforms. Following the foundations of evolution in nature, one may well infer that including levels of freedom to robotic platforms layout is helpful.

Expert Judgment and Expert Systems

This quantity is an outgrowth of a NATO complex examine Workshop on "Expert Judgment and specialist Systems," held in Porto, Portugal, August 1986. aid for the Workshop used to be supplied through the NATO department of clinical Affairs, the U. S. military learn Institute, and the U. S. nationwide technological know-how starting place.

Sol-Gel Processing and Applications

In the course of my expert profession, I constructed a powerful curiosity in sol-gel know-how, and labored on either xerogel and aerogel structures. My fascination with aerogels has pushed me to discover their advertisement strength, that's at the moment an incredible portion of my company's marketing strategy. including my co-workers, i've got additionally labored at the practise of managed PZT and silica xerogels in addition to skinny movie coatings of metals through the sol-gel know-how, those reports confident me of the super potentials of this know-how.

Allows to deduce it "from nothing"). Therefore only a finite number of complexes will be admissible according to O-premise rules (not more than the number of O-premise rules in our calculus). In the case of a k-premise rule for k ~ 1 a "permitting" rule must be (as we have said) a local action in the sense of chap. 1; we need only (if k > 1) to represent a k- tuple of complexes al, ••. , ak as one complex (of an 36 Ch. 3. Calculus "enriched" aggregate, as mentioned in chap. 0). A simple but important remark: any aggregate may be generated by some calculus (and therefore by a Kolmogorov-type calculus).

To do this we declare that if I is a n-ary functional symbol from u then the value of I is defined as: I itself if n = 0; a mapping (tl, ... , tn) ~ I(tl, ... , tn) if n > O. Declare the values of all predicate symbols to be predicates being false everywhere. We obtain an algebraic system called the lree algebraic system generated by the signature u. So we call the object usually called a free algebra of a signature p with generators al, ... , a, a free algebra generated by the signature u = p U {al, ...

According to this the whole descriptive theory of algorithms can be treated as a theory of a single universal algorithm based on a certain representative model. It seems that different universal algorithms may lead to different theories of algorithms. But this is not true: algorithm theory is unique. This uniqueness is confirmed by the Rogers' theorem on the isomorphism of Godel numberings, and the Muchnik's theorem on the isomorphism of computational structures. These theorems will be discussed in chap.
