Bush at WarWith his unmatched investigative skill, Bob Woodward tells the behind-the-scenes story of how President George W. Bush and his top national security advisers, after the initial shock of the September 11 attacks, led the nation to war. Extensive quotations from the secret deliberations of the National Security Council — and firsthand revelations of the private thoughts, concerns and fears of the president and his war cabinet — make Bush at War an unprecedented chronicle of a modern presidency …

Statistical Multiple Integration: Proceedings of a Joint Summer Research Conference Held at Humboldt University, June 17-23, 1989 (Contemporary Mathematics)High dimensional integration arises naturally in two major subfields of statistics: multivariate and Bayesian statistics. Indeed, the most common measures of central tendency, variation, and loss are defined by integrals over the sample space, the parameter space, or both. Recent advances in computational power have stimulated significant new advances in both Bayesian and classical multivariate statistics. In many statistical problems, however, multiple integration can be the major obstacle to s…

Topics in Cryptology -- CT-RSA 2011: The Cryptographers' Track at the RSA Conference 2011, San Francisco, CA, USA, February 14-18, 2011, Proceedings (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Cryptographers’ Track at the RSA Conference 2011, CT-RSA 2011, held in San Francisco, CA, USA, in February 2011. The 24 revised full papers presented together with 1 invited lecture were carefully reviewed and selected from 79 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on secure two-party computation, cryptographic primitives, side channel attacks, authenticated key agreement, proofs of security, block ciphers, security notions…

Positive Operators, Riesz Spaces, and Economics: Proceedings of a Conference at Caltech, Pasadena, California, April 16-20, 1990 (Studies in Economic Theory)Over the last fifty years advanced mathematical tools have become an integral part in the development of modern economic theory. Economists continue to invoke sophisticated mathematical techniques and ideas in order to understand complex economic and social problems. In the last ten years the theory of Riesz spaces (vector lattices) has been successfully applied to economic theory. By now it is understood relatively well that the lattice structure of Riesz spaces can be employed to capture and i…

Operations Research '93: Extended Abstracts of the 18th Symposium on Operations Research held at the University of Cologne September 1-3, 1993 (Symposium on Operations Research//Proceedings)This proceedings volume contains extended abstracts of talks presented at the 18th Symposium on Operations Research held at the University of Cologne, September 1-3, 1993. The Symposia on Operations Research are the annual meetings of the Gesellschaft fiir Mathematik, Okonometrie und Operations Research (GMOOR), a scientific society providing a link between research and applications in the areas of applied mathematics, economics and operations research. The broad range of interests and scientifi…

Computer Programming for TeensReady to learn computer programming but aren’t sure where to start? Look no further, Computer Programming for Teens is the book for you. Other books on programming tend to be language specific and often get bogged down in the syntax of the language. That is fine if you already have a strong background in programming, but if you’re a novice, the language-specific approach can make things unnecessarily difficult. Computer Programming for Teens stresses concepts over language, but still includes ex…
