By Michel-Marie Deza,Elena Deza

This ebook comes out of want and urgency (expressed in particular in components of data Retrieval with recognize to snapshot, Audio, net and Biology) to have a operating software to match data.

The e-book will supply robust source for all researchers utilizing arithmetic in addition to for mathematicians themselves. within the time while over-specialization and terminology fences isolate researchers, this Dictionary you have to be "centripedal" and "oikoumeni", offering a few entry and altitude of imaginative and prescient yet with no taking the direction of medical vulgarisation. This tried stability is the most philosophy of this Dictionary which outlined its constitution and style.

Key features:
- Unicity: it's the first ebook treating the fundamental proposal of Distance in entire generality.
- Interdisciplinarity: this Dictionary is greater in scope than majority of thematic dictionaries.
- Encyclopedicity: whereas an Encyclopedia of Distances turns out now too tough to provide, this publication (by its scope, brief introductions and association) offers the most fabric for it and for destiny tutorials on a few components of this material.
- Applicability: the distances, in addition to distance-related notions and paradigms, are supplied in ready-to-use fashion.
- Worthiness: the necessity and urgency for such dictionary was once nice in numerous large parts, esp. details Retrieval, picture research, Speech popularity and Biology.
- Accessibility: the definitions are effortless to find through topic or, in Index, through alphabetic order; the introductions and definitions are reader-friendly and maximally self reliant one from one other; nonetheless the textual content is dependent, within the 3D HTML sort, by way of hyperlink-like boldfaced references to related definitions.

* Covers a wide variety of topics in natural and utilized mathematics
* Designed to be simply applied--the distances and distance-related notions and paradigms are able to use
* is helping clients quick find definitions via topic or in alphabetical order; stand-alone entries contain references to different entries and assets for additional investigation
