Sphere packings, lattices, and groups by John Horton Conway ( Book )
41 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second edition of this timely, definitive, and popular book continues to pursue the question: what is the most efficient way to pack a large number of equal spheres in n-dimensional Euclidean space? The authors also continue to examine related problems such as the kissing number problem, the covering problem, the quantizing problem, and the classification of lattices and quadratic forms. Like the first edition, the second edition describes the applications of these questions to other areas of mathematics and science such as number theory, coding theory, group theory, analog-to-digital conversion and data compression, n-dimensional crystallography, and dual theory and superstring theory in physics. Results as of 1992 have been added to the text, and the extensive bibliography - itself a contribution to the field - is supplemented with approximately 450 new entries
The theory of error correcting codes by F. J MacWilliams ( Book )
58 editions published between 1976 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A handbook of integer sequences by N. J. A Sloane ( Book )
10 editions published between 1973 and 1993 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The encyclopedia of integer sequences by N. J. A Sloane ( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The encyclopedia of integer sequences contains more than 5,000 integer sequences, arranged for easy reference, with more than half never before been catalogued. In addition to having more than double the material of Sloane's A Handbook of Integer Sequences, this encyclopedia gives the name, mathematical description, and citations to literature for each sequence. It includes essays on origins, uses, and connections, with interesting diagrams or illustrations. More than a table, this is an introduction to the field, showing readers how to identify and work with sequences. It includes an extensive bibliography of current and classical references. An index to all the sequences in the book is also available separately on disk in Macintosh and IBM formats."--Book cover
Self-dual codes and invariant theory by G Nebe ( )
15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most remarkable theorems in coding theory is Gleason's 1970 theorem about the weight enumerators of self-dual codes and their connections with invariant theory. Part of an encyclopedia listing the different types of self-dual codes and their properties, this book develops a different theory
Claude Elwood Shannon : collected papers by Claude Elwood Shannon ( Book )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents a brief biographical sketch of American mathematician Claude Elwood Shannon (b.1916), compiled as part of the MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland. Highlights Shannon's writings
Hadamard transform optics by Martin Harwit ( Book )
6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Orthogonal arrays : theory and applications by A Hedayat ( Book )
9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first book on the subject since its introduction more than fifty years ago, and it can be used as a graduate text or as a reference work. It features all of the key results, many very useful tables, and a large number of research problems. The book will be of interest to those interested in one of the most fascinating areas of discrete mathematics, connected to statistics and coding theory, with applications to computer science and cryptography. It will be useful for anyone who is running experiments, whether in a chemistry lab or a manufacturing plant (trying to make those alloys stronger), or in agricultural or medical research. Sam Hedayat is Professor of Statistics and Senior Scholar in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, University of Illinois, Chicago. Neil J.A. Sloane is with AT & T Bell Labs (now AT & T Labs). John Stufken is Professor Statistics at Iowa State University
A short course on error correcting codes by N. J. A Sloane ( Book )

A short course on error-correcting codes : Udine 1975 by N. J. A Sloane ( Book )

Rock climbing New Jersey : including New York City bouldering, the Delaware Water Gap, and Delaware State by Paul Nick ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Self-dual codes and invariant theory with 34 tables by G Nebe ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On-Line encyclopedia of integer sequences ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The main table is a collection of number sequences arranged in lexicographic order. The entry for each sequence gives: the beginning of the sequence; its name or description, any references or links any formulae; cross-references to other sequences and the name of the person who submitted it. At the present time the table contains around 50000 sequences."
Miscellanea mathematica by Michael Francis Atiyah ( )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematics has a certain mystique, for it is pure and ex- act, yet demands remarkable creativity. This reputation is reinforced by its characteristic abstraction and its own in- dividual language, which often disguise its origins in and connections with the physical world. Publishing mathematics, therefore, requires special effort and talent. Heinz Gotze, who has dedicated his life to scientific pu- blishing, took up this challenge with his typical enthusi- asm. This Festschrift celebrates his invaluable contribu- tions to the mathematical community, many of whose leading members he counts among his personal friends. The articles, written by mathematicians from around the world and coming from diverse fields, portray the important role of mathematics in our culture. Here, the reflections of important mathematicians, often focused on the history of mathematics, are collected, in recognition of Heinz Gotze's life-long support of mathematics
Lengths of cycle times in random neural networks by N. J. A Sloane ( Book )
4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Complete classification of (24,12) and (22,11) self-dual codes by Vera Pless ( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A complete classification is given of all (22,11) and (24,12) self-dual codes. For each code the authors give the order of its group, the number of codes equivalent to it, and its weight distribution. There is a unique (24,12,6) self-dual code. Several theorems on the enumeration of self-orthogonal codes are used, including formulas for the number of such codes with minimum distance> or = 4, and for the sum of the weight enumerators of all self-dual codes.

The theory of error-correcting codes by Florence J MacWilliams ( Book )
5 editions published between 1977 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On constant weight codes and harmonious graphs by Ronald L Graham ( Book )
4 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Very recently a new method has been developed for finding lower bounds on the maximum number of codewords possible in a code of minimum distance d and length n. This method has led in turn to a number of interesting questions in graph theory and additive number theory. In this brief survey we summarize some of these developments. (Author)

The on-line encyclopedia of integer sequences (OEIS) by N. J. A Sloane ( )
in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences® (OEIS®) is a database of sequences of numbers distilled from many sources - books, journals, articles, and letters and electronic mail messages from thousands of contributors. The main use for the OEIS is to identify a number sequence that you have come across, perhaps in your work, while reading a book, or in a quiz, etc. The database was begun by Neil J.A. Sloane in 1964 and was eventually published into 2 books: "A Handbook of Integer Sequences" (1973) and "The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences" (1995). The online version, OEIS, was launched in 1996 and currently contains just over 200,000 entries
