  • Provides the mathematics underlying geospatial abduction and the algorithms to solve them in practice
  • Offers wide applicability in many different fields for practitioners and researchers
  • Includes several lively, real-world examples that will explain the material very clearly to a reader
  • Includes a web site dedicated to geospatial abduction, hosted at University of Maryland. In addition, the authors will record video lectures (30-60 minutes each) devoted to each chapter, as well as slides on each. These materials will supplement the book
Imagine yourself as a military officer in a conflict zone trying to identify locations of weapons caches supporting road-side bomb attacks on your country’s troops. Or imagine yourself as a public health expert trying to identify the location of contaminated water that is causing diarrheal diseases in a local population. Geospatial abduction is a new technique introduced by the authors that allows such problems to be solved. Geospatial Abduction provides the mathematics underlying geospatial abduction and the algorithms to solve them in practice; it has wide applicability and can be used by practitioners and researchers in many different fields. Real-world applications of geospatial abduction to military problems are included. Compelling examples drawn from other domains as diverse as criminology, epidemiology and archaeology are covered as well. This book also includes access to a dedicated website on geospatial abduction hosted by University of Maryland. Geospatial Abduction targets practitioners working in general AI, game theory, linear programming, data mining, machine learning, and more. Those working in the fields of computer science, mathematics, geoinformation, geological and biological science will also find this book valuable.
