Information Theory, Combinatorics, and Search Theory: In Memory of Rudolf Ahlswede is published by Springer in February 2013. This book has 773 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-3642368981.
This volume is dedicated to the memory of Rudolf Ahlswede, who passed away in December 2010. The Festschrift contains 36 thoroughly refereed research papers from a memorial symposium, which took place in July 2011.
The four macro-topics of this workshop: theory of games and strategic planning; combinatorial group testing and database mining; computational biology and string matching; information coding and spreading and patrolling on networks; provide a comprehensive picture of the vision Rudolf Ahlswede put forward of a broad and systematic theory of search.
