This book is an introduction, for mathematics students, to the theories of information and codes. They are usually treated separately but, as both address the problem of communication through noisy channels (albeit from different directions), the authors have been able to exploit the connection to give a reasonably self-contained treatment, relating the probabilistic and algebraic viewpoints. The style is discursive and, as befits the subject, plenty of examples and exercises are provided. Some examples and exercises are provided. Some examples of computer codes are given to provide concrete illustrations of abstract ideas.

The study of special cases of elliptic curves goes back to Diophantos and Fermat, and today it is still one of the liveliest centers of research in number theory. This book, addressed to beginning graduate students, introduces basic theory from a contemporary viewpoint but with an eye to the historical background. The central portion deals with curves over the rationals: the Mordell-Wei finite basis theorem, points of finite order (Nagell-Lutz), etc. The treatment is structured by the local-global standpoint and culminates in the description of the Tate-Shafarevich group as the obstruction to a Hasse principle. In an introductory section the Hasse principle for conics is discussed. The book closes with sections on the theory over finite fields (the "Riemann hypothesis for function fields") and recently developed uses of elliptic curves for factoring large integers. Prerequisites are kept to a minimum; an acquaintance with the fundamentals of Galois theory is assumed, but no knowledge either of algebraic number theory or algebraic geometry is needed. The p-adic numbers are introduced from scratch. Many examples and exercises are included for the reader, and those new to elliptic curves, whether they are graduate students or specialists from other fields, will find this a valuable introduction.

Although it arose from purely theoretical considerations of the underlying axioms of geometry, the work of Einstein and Dirac has demonstrated that hyperbolic geometry is a fundamental aspect of modern physics. In this book, the rich geometry of the hyperbolic plane is studied in detail, leading to the focal point of the book, Poincare's polygon theorem and the relationship between hyperbolic geometries and discrete groups of isometries. Hyperbolic 3-space is also discussed, and the directions that current research in this field is taking are sketched. This will be an excellent introduction to hyperbolic geometry for students new to the subject, and for experts in other fields.

This book is essentially a self-contained introduction to topological dynamics and ergodic theory. It is divided into a number of relatively short chapters with the intention that each may be used as a component of a lecture course tailored to the particular audience. Parts of the book are suitable for a final year undergraduate course or for a master's level course. A number of applications are given, principally to number theory and arithmetic progressions (through van der Waerden's theorem and Szemerdi's theorem).

Neural Nets and Chaotic Carriers is an innovatory text, in that it develops rational principles for the design of associative memories with a view to applying these principles to models with the irregularly oscillatory operation so evident in biological neural systems. It thus bridges studies of artificial and of biological neural networks, with new results for both. The text has a strong research character, but a concise exposition from the basics makes it accessible to non-specialists. Design is based on the criterion that an associative memory must be able to cope with 'fading data', i.e. to form an inference from data even as its memory of that data degrades. The resultant net shows striking biological parallels, suggesting testable anatomical predictions. Many questions concerning composite or 'spurious' traces and memory capacity are clarified. The approach taken to models of the biological neuron and oscillation in systems of such neurons follows the pioneering ideas of W.J. Freeman, and develops these. In particular, when the associative memory principles are combined with oscillatory operation, some remarkable effects emerge. For example, the system shows a low-frequency square-wave oscillation (the 'escapement oscillation') with gamma-range bursts at its peaks, much as is observed in electroencephalograms. The text will be invaluable for researchers and graduate workers with a primary interest in artificial of biological neural nets. However, it is also accessible and interesting to anyone with the mathematical background usual in artificial intelligence, computer science, systems studies or statistics, for example.
