Systems Biology Approaches for Host-Pathogen Interaction Analysis aids biological researchers in expanding their research scope using piled up data generated through recent technological advancements. In addition, it opens avenues for bioinformatics and computer science researchers to utilize their expertise in biologically meaningful ways. Other areas covered include network biology approaches to decipher complex multiple host-pathogen interactions in addition to valuable coverage of artificial intelligence. This book bridges these gaps through a new paradigm of understanding the consequences of interactions in biological networks.Host-pathogen interactions are generally considered as highly specific interactions leading to a variety of consequences. The utilization of data science approaches has revolutionized scientific research including host-pathogen interaction analyses. Data science approaches coupled with network biology has taken host-pathogen interaction analysis from specific interaction to a new paradigm of understanding consequences of these interaction in the biological network.

The Neuroscience of Bach’s Music: Perception, Action, and Cognition Effects on the Brain is a comprehensive study of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music through the lens of neuroscience, examining neuroscience using Bach’s music as a tool. This book synthesizes cognitive neuroscience, music theory, and musicology to provide insights into human cognition and perception. It also explores how a neuroscience perspective can improve listening and performing experiences for Bach’s music. Written by a physician-neuroscientist recognized for scholarly articles on Bach’s music, this book uses specific examples to explore neuroscience across Bach’s compositions.The book is structured to discuss the brain’s action, perception, and cognition as connected to specific Bach concertos, tones, notes, and performances. Two guest contributors provide insight into exact mathematical, or topologic, and music theoretic aspects of Bach’s music with implications for cognitive neuroscience.

Many-Sorted Algebras for Deep Learning and Quantum Technology

Many-Sorted Algebras for Deep Learning and Quantum Technology presents a precise and rigorousdescription of basic concepts in quantum technologies and how they relate to deep learning and quantum theory. Current merging of quantum theory and deep learning techniques provides the need for a source that gives readers insights into the algebraic underpinnings of these disciplines. Although analytical, topological, probabilistic, as well as geometrical concepts are employed in many of these areas, algebra exhibits the principal thread; hence, this thread is exposed using many-sorted algebras. This book includes hundreds of well-designed examples that illustrate the intriguing concepts in quantum systems. Along with these examples are numerous visual displays. In particular, the polyadic graph shows the types or sorts of objects used in quantum or deep learning. It also illustrates all the inter and intra-sort operations needed in describing algebras. In brief, it provides the closure conditions. Throughout the book, all laws or equational identities needed in specifying an algebraic structure are precisely described.
