This work is an updated and considerably expanded version of the author's book The Theory of Semirings, with Applications to Mathematics and Theoretical Science, which has been recognized as the definitive reference work in this area. This edition includes many of the new results in this area, as well as further applications of semiring theory in such areas as idempotent analysis, discrete dynamical systems, formal language theory, fuzzy set theory, optimization etc. The book contains an extensive bibliography and a large number of examples.Audience: This book is aimed both at mathematicians and at researchers in applied mathematics and theoretical computer science. It is also suitable for use as a graduate-level textbook.
