The twin themes of computational complexity and information pervade this book. It starts with an introduction to information-based complexity, that is, the computational complexity of continuous mathematical models. It then moves to a variety of topics, including breaking the curse of dimensionality, complexity of path integration, solvability of ill-posed problems, value of information in computation, assigning values to mathematical hypotheses, and mathematical finance. The style is informal, and the goal is motivation and insight. Precise statements and proofs can be found in the monographs and papers included in the comprehensive bibliography. The book will be essential reading for researchers in the many disciplines influenced by the computational complexity of continuous problems.

Quantum computers are hypothetical quantum information processing (QIP) devices that allow one to store, manipulate, and extract information while harnessing quantum physics to solve various computational problems and do so putatively more efficiently than any known classical counterpart (5). Physical objects as they are, QIP devices are subject to the laws of physics. No doubt, the application of these laws is error-free, but noise - be it external influences or hardware imprecisions - can sometimes cause a mismatch between what the QIP device is supposed to do and what it actually does. In recent years the elimination of noise that result from external disturbances or from imperfect gates has become the "holy grail" within the quantum computing community, and a worldwide quest for a large scale, fault-tolerant, and computationally superior QIP device is currently taking place. Whether such machines are possible is an exciting open question, yet the debate on their feasibility has been so far rather ideological in character (45) (66)(110) (162). Remarkably, philosophers of science have been mostly silent about it: common wisdom has it that philosophy should not intervene in what appears to be (and is also presented as) an engineering problem, and besides, the mathematics employed in the theory of fault-tolerant quantum error correction (FTQEC henceforth) is rather daunting. It turns out, however, that behind this technical veil the central issues at the heart of the debate are worthy of philosophical analysis and, moreover, bear strong similarities to the conceptual problems that have been saturating a field quite familiar to philosophers, namely the foundations of statistical mechanics (SM henceforth). Reconstructing the debate on FTQEC with statistical mechanical analogies, this book aims to introduce it to readership outside the quantum computing community, and to take preliminary steps towards making it less ideological and mor

In the proceeding, you can learn much more knowledge about Computer Science and Information Engineering of researchers from all around the world. The main role of the proceeding is to be used as an exchange pillar for researchers who are working in the mentioned fields. In order to meet the high quality of Springer, AISC series, the organization committee has made their efforts to do the following things. Firstly, poor quality paper has been refused after reviewing course by anonymous referee experts. Secondly, periodically review meetings have been held around the reviewers about five times for exchanging reviewing suggestions. Finally, the conference organizers had several preliminary sessions before the conference. Through efforts of different people and departments, the conference will be successful and fruitful.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Turing Centenary Conference and the 8th Conference on Computability in Europe, CiE 2012, held in Cambridge, UK, in June 2012. The 53 revised papers presented together with 6 invited lectures were carefully reviewed and selected with an acceptance rate of under 29,8%. The CiE 2012 Turing Centenary Conference will be remembered as a historic event in the continuing development of the powerful explanatory role of computability across a wide spectrum of research areas. The papers presented at CiE 2012 represent the best of current research in the area, and forms a fitting tribute to the short but brilliant trajectory of Alan Mathison Turing. Both the conference series and the association promote the development of computability-related science, ranging over mathematics, computer science and applications in various natural and engineering sciences such as physics and biology, and also including the promotion of related non-scientific fields such as philosophy and history of computing.

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the proceedings of the 13th International C- puter Society of Iran Computer Conference (CSICC-2008). The conference has been held annually since 1995, except for 1998, when it transitioned from a year-end to first-quarter schedule. It has been moving in the direction of greater selectivity (see Fig.1) and broader international participation. Holding it in Kish Island this year represents an effort to further facilitate and encourage international contributions. We feel privileged to participate in further advancing this strong technical tradition. 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Dec 23-26 Dec 23-25 Dec 23-25 Jan 26-28 Mar 8-10 Feb 21-23 Feb 28-30 Feb 23-26 Feb 16-19 Feb 15-18 Jan 24-26 Feb 20-22 Mar 9-11 1995 1996 1997 Iran 1999 2000 2001 U of 2002 Iran 2003 2004 2005 Iran 2006 IPM, 2007 2008 Sharif U Amirkabir U of Sharif U Shahid Isfahan, Telecom Ferdowsi Sharif U Telecom Tehran Shahid Sharif U of Tech, U of Tech, Sci/Tech, of Tech, Beheshti Isfahan Res.
