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 ndimensional 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, analogtodigital conversion and data compression, ndimensional 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 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
Selfdual 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 selfdual codes and their connections with invariant theory. Part of an encyclopedia listing the different types of selfdual codes and their properties, this book develops a different theory

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

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; crossreferences 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 lifelong support of mathematics

Complete classification of (24,12) and (22,11) selfdual 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) selfdual 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) selfdual code. Several theorems on the enumeration of selforthogonal 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 selfdual codes.

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 online encyclopedia of integer sequences (OEIS)
by N. J. A Sloane
(
)
in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The OnLine 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 more
