Stone vessels from royal tombs or with royal inscriptions are catalogued for archaeologists of Egypt.

Information from stone vases aids archaeology, history, and comparative archaeology. The length of reign and place of burial for most rulers of the first half of Egyptian Dynasty 18 is debated, and some genealogies and lifespans of royal family members are uncertain. However, vessels have been one of the means used to establish and explain the meager information that exists. This volume seeks to document shapes, materials, and inscriptions for Egyptian stone vessels either from royal tombs or inscribed with royal names from Dynasty 15 (1648–1540 B.C.) to halfway through Dynasty 18 (1550–1295 B.C.). Also included in this volume is a full chronology, 4 appendices, and a select bibliography.

Takes account of the new concept in artificial intelligence called soft computing, in which the similarities among the various methods for building intelligent information systems make them alternative choices for a particular application, yet their differences also make them potential complements to be used together in a single system. The 19 invited and 77 session papers cover neural networks, fuzzy logic systems, genetic algorithms and evolutionary programming, expert systems, machine learning, hybrid systems, and applications.
