About this book

The aim of this Volume of scientific essays is twofold.

From one side, by remembering the scientific figure of Eduardo R. Caianiello, it aims at focusing his outstanding contributions - from theoretical physics to cybernetics - which after so many years still represent occasion of innovative paths to be fruitfully followed. It must be stressed the contribution that his interdisciplinary methodology can still be of great help in affording and solving present day complex problems.

On the other side, it aims at pinpointing with the help of the scientists contributing to the Volume - some crucial problems in present day research in the fields of interest of Eduardo Caianiello and which are still among the main lines of investigation of some of the Istitutes founded by Eduardo (Istituto di Cibernetica del CNR, IIAS, etc).

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is a collection of 14 papers dedicated to the intellectual heritage of Caianiello. Several of these papers are of interest to computer specialists … . To a computer scientist, the most interesting papers would probably be those of Cull, Davis, de Luca, and Termini. Of these, de Luca’s is especially interesting and enlightening, and is definitely worth reading." (Jonathan Golan, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (5), 2008)
