Applications of Hyperstructure Theoryby Piergiulio Corsini
Synopses & Reviews
This book presents some of the numerous applications of hyperstructures, especially those that were found and studied in the last fifteen years. There are applications to the following subjects: 1) geometry; 2) hypergraphs; 3) binary relations; 4) lattices; 5) fuzzy sets and rough sets; 6) automata; 7) cryptography; 8) median algebras, relation algebras; 9) combinatorics; 10) codes; 11) artificial intelligence; 12) probabilities. Audience: Graduate students and researchers.
Book News Annotation:
For graduate students and researchers in mathematics, Corsini (mathematics and computer sciences, U. of Undine, Italy) and Leoreanu (mathematics, Ai.I Cuza U., Romania) survey how hyperstructure theory, and particularly the hypergroup theory, has been applied in various areas over the past 15 years or so. Among the areas they sample are selected topics in geometry; hypergraphs and graphs; binary relations; lattices; fuzzy sets and rough sets; automata; cryptography; codes; artificial intelligence; median, relation, and algebras; and probabilities. They do not provide an index. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
