             Subject: Recent books in Natural Language Processing


    I would like to draw the attention of the NLP community
    to the following books which have been published over
    the past few months as part of John Benjamin's series
    in Natural Language Processing:

    The Lexical Basis of Sentence Processing
    Paola Merlo and Suzanne Stevenson

    Natural Language Processing for Online applications:
    text retrieval, extraction and categorization
    Peter Jackson and Isabelle Moulinier

    Exploring time, tense and aspect in
    atural Language database interfaces
    Ion Andoroutsopoulos

    For more details on this NLP book series and on the
    above books visit


    I would also seize this opportunity to notify
    the community that my own book:

    Anaphora resolution.
    Ruslan Mitkov
    Longman: London

    which was published several months ago, but for
    which initial problems were experienced with regard
    to ordering, should now be widely available.
    For more details on this book see

    Kluwer is pleased to announce the publication of the following title:

    Modeling and Simulation
    Theory and Practice
    A Memorial Volume for Professor Walter J. Karplus

    edited by

    George A. Bekey
    University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA

    Boris Y. Kogan
    University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA

    Modeling and Simulation: Theory and Practice provides a comprehensive
    review of both methodologies and applications of simulation and modeling.
    The methodology section includes such topics as the philosophy of
    simulation, inverse problems in simulation, simulation model compilers,
    treatment of ill-defined systems, and a survey of simulation languages. The
    application section covers a wide range of topics, including applications
    to environmental management, biology and medicine, neural networks,
    collaborative visualization and intelligent interfaces. The book consists
    of 13 invited chapters written by former colleagues and students of
    Professor Karplus. Also included are several short 'reminiscences'
    describing Professor Karplus impact on the professional careers of former
    colleagues and students who worked closely with him over the years.

    This volume is the proceedings of a workshop to discuss the recent work on
    complex systems in physics and biology, its epistemological and cultural
    implications, and its effect for the development of these two sciences. The
    workshop is geared towards physicists, biologists, and science historians.
