Book, Ludwik Liszka (Cognitive Information Processing in Space Physics and Astrophysics)

Ludwik Liszka, Cognitive Information Processing in Space Physics and Astrophysics.

From the back cover text:

Professor Liszka discusses various information processing techniques which have certain common characteristics: they are all attempts to simulate the basic processes of human cognition. These techniques are particularly useful when studying complex, multivariate processes in nature, especially when they are non-linear. Introduction of these techniques into the area of space physics and astrophysics opens new possibilities for understanding the vast amount of information collected in space experiments.
