              Rei Hayakawa, a lonely, bulimic freelance writer with a drinking problem, wanders into a convenience store. She's swaddled in her coat and scarf, while her thoughts - of alienation, of hunger, of the need for gin and white wine - drift in via stream-of-consciousness. A trucker na...med Okabe walks in, deliberately grazes her behind, and at the same time, Rei's cell phone, set on vibrate, goes off over her heart. Rei impulsively gets into Okabe's truck with him - and stays. Suddenly she finds herself embarking on a road journey across the wintry landscape of Japan with a complete, and possibly dangerous, stranger. Can the physical relationship that develops between them give Rei what she needs, and can she ever free herself from her self-destructive tendencies? Both parties are wounded, guarded and distant -- can they learn to trust each other? Author Mari Akasaka brings her trademark wordplay and vivid imagery to this compelling story of an unlikely pairing set against the bleak backdrop of Japan's highways. Adapted for the screen in 2003, Vibrator has also been made into a film.

              In a dreamlike Japanese town on the banks of the Ikuta River, Ineko loses the ability to see certain things. It begins with a ping-pong ball and progresses to her fiance, whom she cannot see at all. The doctors call it somagnosia, and Ineko's mother and her fiance place her in a ...psychiatric clinic to recover. As they walk home along the riverbank, they consider- is her condition really a form of madness? Is Ineko's selective blindness an expression of her love? Are the trees around them weeping? Delicate, strange and spare, this novella carries the art of the novel into tantalizing and mysterious new realms.

              Numerical and computational methods are nowadays used in a wide range of contexts in complex systems research, biology, physics, and engineering. Over the last decades different methodological schools have emerged with emphasis on different aspects of computation, such as nature-...inspired algorithms, set-oriented numerics, probabilistic systems and Monte Carlo methods. Due to the use of different terminologies and emphasis on different aspects of algorithmic performance there is a strong need for a more integrated view and opportunities for cross-fertilization across particular disciplines. These proceedings features 20 original publications from distinguished authors in the cross-section of computational sciences, such as Machine Learning Algorithms and Probabilistic Models, Complex Networks and Fitness Landscape Analysis, Set Oriented Numerics and Cell Mapping, Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization, Diversity-oriented Evolutionary Methods, and the Foundations of Genetic Programming Algorithms. By presenting cutting edge results with a strong focus on foundations and integration aspects this work presents a stepping stone towards efficient, reliable, and well-analyzed methods for complex systems management and analysis.
