Cognitive Science
In Cognitive Science 3e Friedenberg and Silverman providea solid understanding of the major theoretical and empirical contributions of cognitive science. Their text, thoroughly updated for this new third edition, describes the major theories of mind as well as the major experimental results that haveemerged within each cognitive science discipline. Throughout history, different fields of inquiry have attempted to understand the great mystery of mind and answer questions like: What is the mind? How do we see, think, and remember?Can we create machines that are conscious and capable of self-awareness? This books examinesthese questions and many more. Focusing on the approach ofa particular cognitive science field in each chapter, the authorsdescribe its methodology, theoretical perspective, and findings and then offer a critical evaluation of the field. Features: Offers a wide-ranging, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary introduction to the field of cognitive science and issues of mind. Interdisciplinary Crossroads sections at the end of each chapter focus on research topics that have been investigated from multiple perspectives, helping students to understand the link between varying disciplines and cognitive science. End-of-chapter Summing Up sections provide a concise summary of the major points addressed in each chapter to facilitate student comprehension and exam preparation Explore More sections link students to the Student Study Site where the authors have provided activities to help students more quickly master course content and prepare for examinations Supplements: A password-protected Instructor's Resource contains PowerPoint lectures, a test bank and other pedagogical material.The book's Study Site features Web links, E-flash cards, and interactive quizzes.

Science Diplomacy
As modern foreign policy and international relations encompass more and more scientific issues, we are moving towards a new type of diplomacy, known as “Science Diplomacy”. Will this new diplomacy of the 21st century prove to be more effective than past diplomacy for the big issues facing the world, such as climate change, food and water insecurity, diminishing biodiversity, pandemic disease, public health, genomics or environmental collapse, mineral exploitation, health and international scientific endeavours such as those in the space and the Antarctic?. Providing a new area of academic focus that has only gathered momentum in the last few years, this book considers these questions by bringing together a distinguished team of international specialists to look at various facets of how diplomacy and science are influenced by each other. The book not only dissects the ways that politics, science and diplomacy have become intertwined, but also highlights how the world's seemingly most intractable problems can be tackled with international collaboration and diplomacy that is rooted in science, and driven by technology. It, therefore, challenges the conventional wisdom concerning the juxtaposition of science and the world of diplomacy. Errata(s).

Discovery Science
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Discovery Science, DS 2015, held in banff, AB, Canada in October 2015. The 16 long and 12 short papers presendted together with 4 invited talks in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 44 submissions. The combination of recentadvances in the development and analysis of methods for discovering scienti cknowledge, coming from machine learning, data mining, and intelligent dataanalysis, as well as their application in various scienti c domains, on the onehand, with the algorithmic advances in machine learning theory, on the otherhand, makes every instance of this joint event unique and attractive.

Actuarial Science
Since actuarial education was introduced into China in the 1980s, Chinese scholars have paid greater attention to the theoretical research of actuarial science. Professors and industry experts from well-known universities in China recently worked together on the project “Insurance Information Processing and Actuarial Mathematics Theory and Methodology”, which was supported by the Chinese government. Summarizing what they achieved, this volume provides a study of some basic problems of actuarial science, including risk models, risk evaluation and analysis, and premium principles. The contributions cover some new applications of probability and statistics, fuzzy mathematics and financial economics to the field of actuarial practices. Discussions on the new insurance market in China are also presented. Sample Chapter(s). Chapter 1: Risk Models and Ruin Theory (1,049 KB). Contents: Risk Models and Ruin Theory; Compound Risk Models and Copula Decomposition; Comonotonically Additive Premium Principles and Some Related Topics; Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation and Fuzzy Information Processing for Risks; Application of Fuzzy Mathematics to Actuarial Science; Some Applications of Financial Economics to Insurance; Exploring on the Risk Profile of China Insurance for Setting Appropriate Solvency Capital Requirement. Readership: Graduate students and professionals in actuarial science and statistics.

Science Advances
This book offers an overview of a huge range of scientific achievements in the 20 th century, specifically in the field of applied science. The majority of the essays originally appeared in papers and journals such as the Daily Worker , New Statesman and Nation , Science and Society and Nature . Insofar as one theme runs through them, it is the application of scientific knowledge for the benefit of human society. The author is unashamed to present his perspective on some of the topics discussed in the context of his commitment to Marxism. This collection of essays, first published in 1947, thus offers an intriguing glimpse of mid-20 th century attitudes towards science, and specifically to the possibilities of a scientific approach to the full spectrum of human endeavour as they were perceived in the aftermath of the Second World War, at a time when the Soviet Union and its creed still seemed ascendant.
