Symbolic and Numerical Computation for Artificial Intelligence : Workshop on "Integration of Numerical and Symbolic Computing Methods : Selected Papers
The papers in this volume are based on talks given at a workshop on the Integration of Numerical and Symbolic Computing Methods, held in Saratoga Springs, New York, in July 1990. The Workshop was Sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) , the Air Force Office of Sponsored Research (AFOSR), General Electric Research and Development, Schenectady, and the State University of New York at Albany. Over forty researchers from industry, academia and government participated in the workshop.
