Computational Commutative Algebra in Statistics
Written by pioneers in this exciting new field, Algebraic Statistics introduces the application of polynomial algebra to experimental design, discrete probability, and statistics. It begins with an introduction to Gröbner bases and a thorough description of their applications to experimental design...

Applications of Dynamical Systems in Search and Optimization
Certain algorithms that are known to converge can be renormalized or "blown up" at each iteration so that their local behavior can be seen. This creates dynamical systems that we can study with modern tools, such as ergodic theory, chaos, special attractors, and Lyapounov exponents. Furthermore, we...
